Of course, the mere mention of this song and the group brings back fond memories of the MTV Video with "Bee Girl" from 1993.

Blind Melon was actually formed in 1990 in Los Angeles, California, by five musicians: three from Mississippi, one from Pennsylvania and one from Indiana. Initially, their self- titled debut album did poorly... until the video aired.

Fun Fact: Blind Melon's original lead singer, the late Shannon Hoon, developed a friendship with Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose and provided background vocals on GNR's "Use Your Illusion l and ll" albums.

Fun Fact, too: Heather DeLoach, aka "Bee Girl," reprised her routine (in full costume) in the video for "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Bedrock Anthem."
