Veruca Salt, circa 1997.
Technically, being named after a character who was named after salt, the band is once-removed from salty associations, but that's fine. Technically I'm named after someone who is simply related to salt as well, instead of me being named Salty McSalterson. That's far too blatant.
Veruca Salt's first single was "Seether"/"All Hail Me" (more like a double, amirite?) in 1994. I thought that "Seether" was just the name of the band that played "Fine Again" in 1080º Avalanche, but apparently it's a type of pot for boiling things. Who knew?
Anyway, this first video is the music video for "Seether," featuring cats and dogs, two girls kissing, and one absentee bra:
The next one is the music video for "All Hail Me," featuring a baby-killer and creepy/violent children at a party:
And last but not least, a song off their third album, Eight Arms to Hold You (1997), called "Shutterbug." This one features giant dresses concealing awesome bicycle contraptions, more giant dresses, unfortunate censorship of the virtually harmless word "shit," and very visible suspension cables.*
*Which is fine, actually, considering that the cables in the bubble scene in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory were also notoriously visible. Possible homage to a namesake? Who knows.
