Alright... this is my favorite band (and no it has nothing to do with the band related to my avatar
). Classified by the music industry as "alternative rock" (but I think this limits their style and they are not the typical alternative), the band signed in 1991. Most recently their work has been featured in both soundtracks of Shrek and Shrek 2. Their last release of a full CD was June 3, 2003 and another CD is being prepared to be released this coming year. The band's lead singer/songwriter is usually referred to as "E" or "Mr. E"
25 kudos for the name of the band
25 kudos for Mr. E's real name
25 kudos for both songs used in Shrek and Shrek 2
50 kudos if you can guess my favorite CD they released Hint: it was released in 1998 and was considered a "depressing album" by critics (but Mr. E feels it is his most positive because he worked through the death of his father, sister, and mother)
