Third Eye Blind, the four-man band from the Bay area, rehearsed the songs for their self-titled album in a warehouse in San Francisco's Chinatown. Frontman Stephan Jenkins, guitarist Kevin Cadogan, bassist Arion Salazar and drummer Brad Hargreaves list U2, Perry Farrell, Camper Van Beethoven and David Bowie as early musical influences.

Their 14-track debut album was released on Elektra in the spring of 1997 and produced the hits "How's It Going To Be," "Graduate" and "Semi-Charmed Life."

That same year the band reached rock 'n' roll nirvana when they were invited to play select dates on both the Rolling Stones and U2 tours. Three years later, the band split somewhat less than amicably with guitarist Cadogan, who went on to form his own band, Bully.
