Toad the Wet Sprocket, Megan Slankard

Perhaps the most radical thing about Toad the Wet Sprocket is that they’re named after an off-hand joke in a Monty Python sketch. For the most part, though, they’re not nearly as experimental as their name suggests: Their smooth, pop-verging-on-folk style helped define the sound of alt-rock radio in the early ’90s, with singles like “All I Want” and “Walk on the Ocean” getting significant airplay back in the day. They’ve also cultivated the kind of fervent fanbase you’d typically expect from a jam band, with a Kickstarter for their independently produced 2013 album New Constellation raising more than $250,000.
