10,000 Maniacs/Natalie Merchant

And round 2 begins … now.

You might think a band with a name like 10,000 Maniacs would play the wildest, most raucous music ever. When in fact, 10,000 Maniacs played pretty much the smoothest, most polished music to come out of college radio in the 80s. Lead singer Natalie Merchant took things a step further in her solo career by making music that was smooth, polished, and boring.
