Five Eels Songs That Are Better Than That Eels Song We're Not Mentioning

Eels (no "The," just "Eels") have had a long, storied, interesting, musically adventurous career, but for a lot of people it stopped in 1996. Hell, for a fair amount of people most things alternative rock stopped in 1996, but I digress. The thing is, they've released a full nine albums since, two of which are probably better than Beautiful Freak, and all of which have a smattering of songs that I consider better than their 1996 uber-smash single. There's always going to be that crowd, isn't there? The play-the-hit crowd. They'll be there in full force when Eels hit Dallas on Thursday at the Granada. That song's not even that good, guys. Try these ones.
