Emperor Of The Bathroom

My fifth song from 1995 is "Emperor Of The Bathroom" by the Minus 5.

The Minus Five were formed as a one-off music collective fronted by Scott McCaughey and Peter Buck, and fifteen years later they've put out ten albums, a few eps, and many assorted compilation tracks. They've even recorded more albums than the Young Fresh Fellows.

At the end of this song, Scott mentions that he didn't understand why this song wasn't a big hit, and I don't either. It was one of my favorite songs of 1995 (better than anything on Monster, as I said at the time) and is still one of my favorite McCaughey penned tracks.
