Stephen - For me, Placebo represent a very influential time in my life. I first fell in love with their music in Geneva, Switzerland, while doing some solo traveling. It was there that I met some incredible friends who taught me about wild love, and how to find happiness in life, and what it truly feels like to be free. It was in the parks and schoolyards at night, with a bottle of vodka and unstoppable dreams, and we would listen to Black Market Music on repeat.
Eli - Placebo brings me back to a high school trip to Toronto. I first heard "Without You, I'm Nothing" in a record store in Toronto - I remember being mesmerized when the outro hit, and that melodic guitar line came in. I was hooked, and that whole bus ride home to Pennsylvania, that record was the soundtrack. Placebo would ultimately be a huge part of the soundtrack to my teenage years.
This cover of "Teenage Angst" is our tribute to the geniuses of Placebo and what they've meant to us over the years.
