Without a hint of irony

Instead of writing about popular music that baby boomers grew up with, today I'd like to write about a band from my late adolescence. In 1993 the Crash Test Dummies achieved worldwide chart success with their album, God Shuffled His Feet.

I remember seeing television advertisements for this album at the time, which featured the chorus of their hit single, Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm. I can't find it online, but I thought it was amusing that in these advertisements quotes from music critics appeared on the screen, praising the band for their "intelligent lyrics."
