The Stone Temple Pilots Room
Discography

In the wake of the success of the Seattle Sound, Stone Temple Pilots emerged in the early Nineties with a hardrock approach that drew heavily on the influence of earlier guitar bands from Led Zeppelin to Blue Cheer. With their debut, Core, going platinum shortly after its release, they stirred controversy with "Sex Type Thing," a single about date rape and a stylistic approach that some critics felt drew too heavily on Pearl Jamís.

Having met at a Black Flag concert in the late Eighties, singer Weiland and guitarist Robert DeLeo founded Mighty Joe Young to purvey a sound combining heavy-metal -- derived guitar with punk brashness; they changed the groupís name to Shirley Templeís Pussy before deciding on Stone Temple Pilots. Signing to Atlantic and making the triple-platinum Core (#3,1993) with producer Brendan OíBrien (the Black Crowes, the Red Hot Chili Peppers), they soon gained heavy MTV exposure and, while decrying the "grunge" label, found themselves in the same sales league as Nirvana and Pearl Jam. The single "Plush," which hit #9 on the modern-rock tracks chart, continued their commercial ascension. Their followup album, Purple, debuted at #1 and also went triple platinum.

Formed 1987 as Mighty Joe Young, San Diego, California
