Formed in Los Angeles, Blind Melon was a post alternative new wave psychedelic grunge band whose growing success ended with the 1995 overdose death of lead singer Shannon Hoon. Blind Melon only recorded two albums with Hoon and later band formations failed to regain momentum. Written by bass player, Brad Smith, "No Rain" appears on the band's multi-platinum selling self-titled CD. "No Rain" reached Billboard #20 and spawned a very popular MTV video featuring the tap dancing Bee Girl. "All I can is that my life is pretty plain I like watching the puddles gather rain" The song is sad about loneliness and wanting to be accepted and loved. "No Rain" is a classic 90s era song sticking in mind.
