Where were they going with out ever knowing the way?The Way, Fastball

Austin, Texas based alt-rock trio, Fastball formed in 1995 by Tony Scalzo (Bass, Vocals), Miles Zuniga (Guitar, Vocals) and Joey Shuffield (Drums) broke onto the scene in 1996 with their debut album Make Your Mama Proud on Hollywood Records. The album presented an early glimpse of the band’s main songwriters Scalzo and Zuniga’s Beatlesque, melodic hook-laden brand of alternative power-pop on songs like “Are You Ready For The fallout”, “Knock It Down” and “Human Torch”. In 1998 the band found mainstream success with their multi-platinum sophomore follow-up All The Pain Money Can Buy, which lived on the Billboard Top 200 chart for a year, with lead single “The Way” topping the Billboard Modern Rock chart for seven weeks while hitting #5 on Billboard’s Top 40 Mainstream chart. Follow up singles were “Fire escape” and “Out Of My Head” which stayed on the Billboard Top 40 chart for 29 weeks peaking at #10. In 1999 the band received Grammy Awards nominations for Best Performance by a Group or Duo with Vocals and Best Long Form video for “The Way” as well as MTV Award nomination for Best New Artist. The band continued to rock on in 2000 with their alt-pop songwriting crafts on third album The Harsh Light Of Day, which included lead single “You’re An Ocean” as well as Keep Your Wig On (2004) and Little White Lies And Beyond (2009). In the fall of 2016 Bad Boy/Interscope artist/rapper Machine Gun Kelly and Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello teamed up for a duet on their Top 20 hit single “Bad Things”, which featured a compelling interpolation of Scalzo’s “Out Of My Head” for the song’s main hook.
