The Presidents of the United States of America garnered acclaim throughout the grunge-heavy 90's for performing humorous, rocket-fueled earworms about chickens, kittens and bugs in a style that showcased both punk ethos and stadium rock showmanship. Hits like "Peaches," "Lump" and "Mach 5" dominated both alt-rock radio and MTV at the time, even scoring the Seattle trio the ultimate seal of legitimacy: a parody from "Weird Al" Yankovic. Recently, the group -- though no longer performing as a unit -- reconvened to launch a Kickstarter campaign to get their self-titled, triple-platinum, Columbia Records debut officially pressed to vinyl for the first time in the US. And fans were ready -- since the announcement (on Presidents Day, no less), listeners have funded over ten times the amount of PUSA's original goal. On this episode, drummer Jason Finn talks about recently hearing the album's new test pressing (and why it's taken 15 years for this vinyl campaign to become a reality), how an infamous band photo with then President Bill Clinton made it onto the cover of a Spanish pressing of the LP and lots more. Follow @jasonfinn on Twitter, @finnbot3000 on Instagram and pre-order the vinyl reissue, as well as check out the band's social media, at presidentsrock.com
