Album of the Day
CORE (25TH ANNIVERSARY)
Stone Temple Pilots (guitarist Dean DeLeo, bassist Robert DeLeo, drummer Eric Kretz and vocalist Scott Weiland) roared on to the scene 25 years ago today with their raucous debut CORE. A breakout success, the album peaked at #3 on the Billboard charts, dominated radio waves with hits like “Sex Type Thing” and “Wicked Garden,” and has been certified 8x Platinum by the RIAA. The band also took home the 1994 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance for their smash single “Plush.” The new Deluxe Edition of the grunge-era classic features a newly remastered version of CORE and a bonus disc of B-sides and nine previously unreleased demos drawn from the quartet's original Atlantic sessions and recordings made between 1987 and 1990 when the band was known as Mighty Joe Young.
