STP’s “formulaic” tag was off-base. In retrospect, applied not because they were assembled Boy Band style to mirror the popular trends of the day, but because they so authentically bridged the grunge to alt rock/emo era, because they were a radio band during a period when radio formats were shifting, because they had compelling visuals as MTV was finding a second wind. STP’s music holds up well and hopefully they’ll get more credit over time for the position they filled alongside the Grunge Gods and Alt Rock Heroes.
