During the spring of 1993, the song “What’s Up?” became a huge call-in request across the United States and would soon launch us into international fame. Our album Bigger, Better, Faster, More! has sold over 7 million copies worldwide and counting.
4 Non Blondes toured the world, opening for such rock legends as Aerosmith, Neil Young, Pearl Jam, and Prince and performed on numerous television shows including The Dave Letterman show, The Late Show with Conan O’Brien, Arsenio Hall, The Billboard Music Awards, MTV’s Beach House, Jon Stewart’s pilot show on MTV, the E Channel, and England’s Top of the Pops (2x).
In 1993, the band was nominated for an MTV video award in the category of alternative rock, and nominated for Best New Band in Rolling Stone Magazine Reader’s Pole (singer Linda Perry did win the award for Best New Female Singer).
Bigger, Better, Faster, More! climbed up the Billboard Charts during the summer of 1993, peaking at #11. We also did soundtrack recordings for the movies Wayne World 2 (“Mary’s House”) and Airheads (“I’m The One”).
Other recordings included a jingle for Levi Strauss, the song “Misty Mountain Hop” for the Led Zeppelin tribute “Encomium” recording, and “Bless the Beasts and the Children” for a Carpenters tribute album.
