(Top Modern Rock Songs Of All Time)
Song: "Bound For The Floor"
Artist: Local H
Release Date: January, 1996
From the Album: As Good As Dead (1996)
Quick Take: "Bound for the Floor" is a song by American alternative rock duo Local H, released as the first single from their 1996 album, As Good as Dead. It is widely considered to be the band's most popular single, reaching #5 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and #10 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. It still receives radio circulation to this day, and serves as a minor staple of the post-grunge era. The song's angst driven lyrics deal with a lack of confidence and frustration which is strongly reflected in the overall performance. Like many of Local H's songs, the guitar tuning is a half step down from standard.
