Snot, aside from an unfortunate band name, also has the unfortunate fate of being a one-album band's whose career was cut short by the untimely death of their frontman Lynn Strait. That's what they tend to be remembered for the most, and I can't say I hear all that much about their music.

So what about the music? Pretty good stuff. It reminds me of a bit of Powerman 5000, though not quite the same extent of style hopping and blending. There's near thrashers like Deadfall, groovy hooks with I Jus' Lie and Tecato, rap metal tracks like Stoopid and Snooze Button that switch between mellow and intense, and even a great chillout jazzy instrumental with Get Some Keez.

Snot is one of those bands that I've always been under the impression that they carry a legacy more for circumstance rather than their music, like Nirvana. While that may be true historically speaking, Get Some is a pretty good album with nice variety and Snot could've probably made an even better follow up had they gotten the chance. Check out Powerman 5000 first, and then this if you want some more of a slightly similar sound.
