Biography

Fullerton, California, United States (1990 – present)

Lit is a post-grunge band, based in Fullerton, California, United States. They had several hits singles in the 1990s and early 2000s including My Own Worst Enemy, Miserable, Zip-Lock, Over My Head, Lipstick and Bruises, Addicted, Looks Like They Were Right and Times Like This.

The band was formed in 1990 as a metal-oriented band, under the name “Razzle”, and gained a large following. A few years later, the group changed its name to “Stain”, but due to another band owning the name, it changed its name to “Lit” in 1996. The group shot to stardom with the platinum album A Place In The Sun in 1999. A Place In The Sun yielded the smash single “My Own Worst Enemy,” which held the number one position for three months, and received a Billboard Music Award for the biggest Modern Rock Song of 1999. It was followed by “Zip-Lock” (which featured Blink-182) and “Miserable”, the latter of which was among the top ten most played songs of 2000 and famously featured Pamela Anderson in the video. The band performed over 286 shows and toured worldwide in support of A Place in the Sun. In addition to the Vans Warped Tour and a coveted slot on Woodstock 1999, the band toured with The Offspring, Garbage, and No Doubt.

Lit followed up A Place in the Sun with the 2001 release of Atomic which gave the band another Top 10 hit with “Lipstick And Bruises”; the album wasn’t as successful as “A Place In The Sun”.

    Had some doubts about the band if it ever would make a record again that's suits me after those years. Well: with The View From The Bottom they did!

    People seem to live off the past too much. "A place in the Sun" and "Atomic" are alot better then the latest album but it's a good album. Bands change, people change. I actually like it like that. No one want's the same album six times over do they? I love the new Eve 6 album but they sound pretty much the same. "The View from the bottom" will stick in peoples minds longer because it's the sound of a band that has matured. And how anyone can say it sounds like Simple Plan is beyond me.

    I still think this album is not so great as what I was expecting as 'a Lit album' and I honestly didn't like how the band is sounding on it. Just MY personal opinion. I REALLY wish them ALL the success in the world and I still LOVE ALL of the other things they did before - because to ME they are waaaaaaay better than what they did now - just sayin'...

    But the album wont put the band back under the spotlight, trust me!

    Ok, we all have our own taste in music. Btw, I hope this album, with its poppy sound, will put the band under the spotlight, so we don't have to wait another 8 years for the next release (and hoping it'll please everyone of us).
