    File this post under "March 2018 ATOM Semantics" along with: 1) Are The Black Keys a band?; and 2) Is Cereal a Soup?:

    Are we sure that Live qualifies as "Butt Rock"?
    They released their debut in 1991 - same year as Pearl Jam - which pushes them outside the "originating in the mid-late 90s" qualifier that the definitive authority (Urban Dictionary) assigns this genre.

    Just sayin'.

    Yeah I guess they pre-date it. Post-grunge? Grunge?

    Either way, it's shitty music. IMHO of course.

    Exhibit Z showing how clues with no context are borderline worthless, as this fits the clues as well or better than many other guesses.

    Agree!

    Disagree! I used to be OK with them, but I grew tired of them. No judgments here!

    Having been a freshman in college in 1991 (holy shit I am OOOOLD), I'd be hard pressed to call Live "post-grunge", but having never listened to a single second of "The Distance to Here" (nor do I intend to for the purposes of this dicussion) I can't say that their sound didn't morph into a "post-grunge" sound by 2000.

    I'd have to lump the 1991 Live into the same category as the RHCP, Toad the Wet Sprocket, ect. whose popularity was bolstered by the dynamic shift in music created by grunge, but they were decidedly NOT what i would call grunge. (IMHO of course). Maybe I'd say they were the last vestiges of "College Rock" before "College Rock" became the mainstream/"Alternative"??

    Again - file all this under "March 2018 ATOM Semantics".

    Ok. Time for an honest-to-goodness actual guess rather than me just throwing frustration at the context-less clues.

    EDIT: I'M AN IDIOT AND THIS IS IN THE STORE

    Pearl Jam - Pearl Jam

    [​IMG]

    2006 release date - GW Bush's second term

    1. California has the avocado as the official State Fruit.

    2. Alabama clue was for a place called "Surf's Up Dolphin Cruises". The song "Big Wave" from this album was on 2007's "Surf's Up" movie soundtrack.

    3. Idaho clue was for Sandpoint area. There is a music festival every year, which we've established. Apparently there was a local rumor in 1995 that Pearl Jam would be playing there:

    http://www.spokesman.com/stories/1995/may/20/sandpoint-festival-has-most-everything-except/

    There is also a track on the album called "Marker in the Sand".

    Again, Redondo translates to "Round", Perdido to "Lost" and Pend Oreille loosely to "Earring". Round lost earrings are frequently Pearls.

    What does the fact that it is currently available in the VMP store do to this guess? NOT throwing shade - I'm relatively new to this thread and I don't know if this has an impact or not.

    Throws it in the trash.

    I didn't even think to look this one up. I know nothing about this album, I just saw that the only entry I saw on Discogs was for a high price. Apparently it's widely available and in the store and I totally missed it.

    I'd say that's getting pretty close to fact.

    I saw Live open up for counting crows and the lead singer was such a cringy douchecanoe. Like "oooh man it's hot up here. I guess it's time to....take my shirt off....."

    MY GOD, I'm with @HiFi Guy and @Mather, I will happily faint over a badass reissue of Music from Big Pink.

    But don't dismiss the maritime aspect of Sandpoint, that lake is a major destination for the state, so may merely be another water hint. Its a beautiful locale for those who have never been.

    Liking these hints @Clay Conder well done
