Then: By all logic, Sugar Ray shouldn't have been big in 1999. Their first major hit, "Fly," was already two years old, and even the band knew they might be headed straight toward the one-hit wonder bin – they called their 1999 LP 14:59, a joke about their 15 minutes of fame running out. But they made that last second count, scoring in a big way on the radio with "Every Morning," "Someday" and "Falls Apart."
Now: Sugar Ray landed another hit with 2001's "When It's Over," but they went on hiatus in 2005 – right around the time that frontman Mark McGrath began working as a TV host on Extra. They returned in 2009 with Music for Cougars, which failed to generate much heat, and are currently on the road as part of a Nineties nostalgia package tour with Gin Blossoms, Everclear and Marcy Playground.
