Memphis, Tennessee, United States
American hard rock/nu metal band
The group was formed in September 1996 in Memphis, Tennessee. While Memphis was an unlikely place for a grunge / nü-metal band, Saliva was able to follow in the tradition of crafting hard rock songs in radio-friendly format popularized by the likes of Creed and Nickelback. After competing in the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences Grammy Showcase competition, where they advanced to the final round in New York City, the group self-released their self-titled debut album which sold over 10,000 copies in their region, prompting Island Records to take notice.
Thoughts on Songs with Saliva
This lyrical content is the essence of managing all struggles, using the power found within you. You gotta stand strong, let people in for sure, however do not depend on them. You cannot depend on other people to make you happy. You make yourself happy. By making it.
It's the same old fragile-yet-rocking song concept. Those guys with the sore fingers from playing them guitar chords, have a heart and do not hesitate to write a song about the feelings that resident within it. It's a cool song reminds me of my teen years -the period when it got out.
