The Toadies' Best Album Is Getting Reissued: What's the Band's Legacy Now?

Yesterday, an announcement was made that The Toadies' major label debut, Rubberneck, will be reissued in April on Kirtland Records. Remastered for CD and vinyl with five unreleased bonus tracks, this is obviously a pretty big deal for longtime fans of the band. The band will head out on an anniversary tour in the spring to promote it as well.

To discuss the band's history and legacy, Eric Grubbs and Darryl Smyers had a little chat about the impact of the record then and now. True to form of previous discussions on records like Too Far to Care and Vulgar Display of Power, they had a lot to say. And yes, the record came out 20 years ago this year.
