Found Out About You (3:53)

Cover of New Miserable Experience

From New Miserable Experience and 19 other releases

Gin Blossoms is an alternative rock band formed in 1987, in Tempe, Arizona. They took their name from a photo of W.C. Fields which bore the caption “W.C. Fields with gin blossoms”, referring to what appeared to be the actor’s gin-ravaged nose, but was actually a skin condition known as rosacea. The band released three albums and had several hits in the mid 1990s, before breaking up in 1997. Five years later in 2002, the band reunited, released a DVD, resumed touring, and promised a fourth album. Major Lodge Victory, the Gin Blossoms’ first album in ten years, was released on August 8, 2006 on the Hybrid Recordings label.

Reflecting on the unpleasant new experience of life in a band under a major record label, Gin Blossoms named their first full-length studio album New Miserable Experience. In February 1992, while still working to complete it, founding member and lead guitarist/songwriter Doug Hopkins drank heavily and grew increasingly stubborn and disillusioned with the process. Faced with the prospect of being dropped by A&M, the band terminated Hopkins and replaced him with Scott Johnson. The album was completed and the first single released from it was Hopkins’ song “Hey Jealousy”. It would reach #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #4 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Tracks, largely fueling the success of New Miserable Experience. However, the achievement would be overshadowed by Hopkins’ suicide on December 4, 1993. The following year, another song penned by Hopkins, “Found Out About You”, would also reach #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 and climb to #1 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks.

All last summer in case you don't recall
I was yours and you were mine forget it all
Is there a line that I could write, sad enough to make you cry?
And all the lines you wrote to me were lies

    Doug Hopkins actually lived the last verse. He saw his girlfriend who had cheated on him and she sucker-punched him and left him with a black eye, hence the "Your boyfriend's over, I watch your light go out" lyric. This song is really sad. Like, you can hear the despondency and resignation in Robin Wilson's voice. It's probably my favorite song by Gin Blossoms because of this.

    I hate when people say guilty pleasure. You shouldn't feel guilty for something that gives you pleasure. ;) Anyway, amazing song. Takes me back.
