Hootie & the Blowfish burst out of the grass-roots southern rock scene in the mid-1990s, but their panoramic, All-American pop-rock sound was more influenced by John Mellencamp than by Lynyrd Skynyrd. The band's distinguishing feature was the robust, booming voice of Darius Rucker (no, he wasn't "Hootie"), and their sunny, straightforward sound connected in a big way with audiences weary of grunge bleakness.
