The Verve Pipe
Not to be confused with the Verve, whom most of us Yanks know as one-hit wonders, this '90s Michigan band is probably remembered as a two-hit wonder with "The Freshman" and "Photograph." But could you really say that the later song stands up against the very different yet identically titled tracks from Ringo Starr or Def Leppard? If you're enamored with emo-pop, then this reunion will seem pretty heartening. Then again, Jimmy Eats World and Weezer have much deeper, better catalogs.
