Certain Songs #1225: Nada Surf – “Blankest Year”

Album: The Weight is A Gift
Year: 2005

I can hear you saying: “Nada Surf? Aren’t they that band who had that one novelty song on MTV, like, 20 years ago?”

Yes. That song was called “Popular,” and was a pretty big Modern Rock song back when that was a thing, and it was a song that I completely ignored at the time, as well, even though I’m sure it was all over Live 105. And so I dismissed Nada Surf as being like Third Eye Blind or Marcy Playground or a million other Modern Rock one-hit-wonders from the late 1990s.
