: I was just wondering why Soul Asylum's song got the video treatment. I thought it was a great song, but I think the Alice in Chains song "Got Me Wrong" was the real stand out of the album and deserved the video. Plus, I would think they would have been a bigger band than Soul Asylum in 1994.
: Don't get me wrong
: I thought it was a great song, but I think the Alice in Chains song "Got Me Wrong" was the real stand out of the album and deserved the video. Plus, I would think they would have been a bigger band than Soul Asylum in 1994.
'Cause "Cant even tell" was specially for the movie. uh... it appeared on the end credits and... uh... It would have been much easier to get Soul Asylum than Alice In Chains at the time, can you imagine how much it would have cost to get even Lane Staley for the shoot. As you said, Alice in Chains were a very successful band at the time, and Soul Asylum (I think) were still a very new and only moderately successful
: Did it have to do with the willingness of the bands? Clearance issues? A preference of Kevin or some execs? Something else?
As I said above in my theory, it was probably cost
: Does anyone agree/disagree with me?
Oh yeah I agree. "Got me Wrong" is my favourite song on the album, and, probably my favourite song EVER (Along with the Pixies "Where is my mind?")
: Also, what did you do to get clearance for these songs in a no budget indie flick? How much does that cost and what's the procedure?
As Kevin said on the DVD commentary, songs, etc. were added when the film was bought by MIRAMAX. Sony bought them the tunes(I think, Am I right people), or something like that anyway
: Thanks for the tunes

I Am Jacks passion for Alice In Chains
