Sponge - Plowed

Sunday, time for a classic.

"Plowed" is a song by American alternative rock band SPONGE. The song was released as the second single from the group's debut studio album "Rotting Piñata". "Plowed" was also featured on the band's compilation albums "Molly and Hits & B Sides Volume One".

The song was featured in the 1995 film "Empire Records", but was not present on the film's soundtrack. The song was also featured in the 1998 film "No Looking Back". In 2007, the song was featured in the Cold Case episode "Stand Up and Holler" (season 4, episode 20).

“Plowed” continues to be the band’s signature rock track, having been spotlighted on Guitar Hero’s “Warriors of Rock – 90’s Rock Track Pack” – and on the Paper Jamz Guitar Series 2, in addition to the soundtrack for the Gerard Butler surf movie “Chasing Mavericks.”

The melodic hardcore/metalcore band EVERGREEN TERRACE covered the song in 2004 for their album "Writer's Block".

SPONGE is an American alternative rock band from Detroit, Michigan formed in 1991 by Vinnie Dombroski, Mike Cross, Tim Cross, and Joey Mazzola. All were formerly of the hard rock band LOUDHOUSE. SPONGE was signed to Sony Records in 1994 but have since switched to other labels.

The band recruited Jimmy Paluzzi on drums to round out the lineup. Their debut album, "Rotting Piñata", released in 1994, was a major hit, received heavy play on radio and MTV, and was certified gold by the RIAA. The two biggest singles from that album were "Plowed" and "Molly" but by the end of 1994 Charlie Grover replaced drummer Paluzzi. Their follow-up album was called Wax Ecstatic; the track "Have You Seen Mary" was included in the Kevin Smith film Chasing Amy.
