Some people outside of Texas do not understand the impact of the Toadies in the Lone Star State.

While the rest of the world just knows Toadies by the song Possum Kingdom, we rock to "I Come From The Water", "Backslider", "Away", and "Tyler", all of that is just from Rubberneck.

As a live band, Toadies are unmatched. I've seen them play smack dab in the middle of a huge festival and just lay waste to every single person in the crowd. Yes, Seattle had Nirvana, but Texas had, and still has, Toadies.

I don't care about the haters, the doubters, and those who lost their ability to grow past the 90's. Toadies are still making exceptional music today and putting on electric live performances.

Toadies (it's still weird not saying "The Toadies") have released an amazing cover song. While for all practical purposes, this should be a curio, an artifact, and an afterthought, it is not. Is vital, it is amazing, and it proves that the band can still deliver with all the fierceness of anything on Rubberneck.

But before we get to the cover, let's talk about their latest honor. The band is name-checked in a new song by Texas gal and talk show host Kelly Clarkson. This is absolutely huge for the band. I've cued up the video so you can go straight to the name check.

Now let's get to the meat of the matter. Toadies have a new song on a compilation to benefit Texas Parks (XLNT CAUSE!). It is a cover of Kelly Clarkson's "Since You've Been Gone" and it rocks like a son-of-a-gun. One last thing, how about we re-start the Toadies revolution right now and share this song far and wide? Let's make sure every distant cousin, uncle, coastal, and whatever friend or relative knows this band has dropped a banger. Now, go get it!
