Cracker Comes Out With Break Up Album Instead Of Popular Names

ATHENS, Ga. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s a unwritten rule that if you name a song after a particular person, you’ve at least pocketed that demographic in your marketing strategy.

But the frontman for pop-folk band Cracker, David Lowery, says his old band, Camper Van Beethoven, would have gone one further.

In Lowery’s words: “We were going to find out what the 12 most popular names in the 18-27 demographic were and then write songs about them.”

But, Lowery says: “With my skewed take on things, I couldn’t bring myself to write all nice things, so we never did it.”

Cracker’s new album, Greenland, called by some their darkest and heaviest yet, features a song named “Maggie.”

Meanwhile, the band is currently touring North America.
