7. Blind Melon - 'No Rain'

In 1993 it seemed like MTV played nothing but Aerosmith's Alicia Silverstone videos, Dr. Dre's "Nuthin' But A 'G' Thang" and Blind Melon's "No Rain." The latter group was a hippie grunge band from California that seemed like the next big thing. They played at Woodstock 1994 and had a massive radio hit with "No Rain," but lead signer Shannon Hoon was hopelessly addicted to drugs and he died on tour in October of 1995. The group reformed with a new singer in 2006.
