September 29th, 1992: Stone Temple Pilots Release ‘Core’

Powered by two huge singles, "Plush" and "Creep," the band's debut, produced by Brendan O'Brien, shot to Number Three. It eventually went 8 times platinum and remains the band's best selling album. During the time, the band would endure comparisons to another brooding West Coast band — but not the one they expected. "It's funny, when we were recording the record, I was listening to a lot of Doors, and I was worried about the fact that people would say I was trying to sounds like Jim Morrison," Weiland told Rolling Stone in 1994. "I never thought there was going to be this Pearl Jam Thing. I never thought it would blow up the way it has."
