Rodney & the Tube Tops were a short-lived American alternative rock band from Seattle, Washington. The band — which was more of a side-project — included members of Hole, Sonic Youth and White Flag and were eponymously named after frontman, DJ Rodney Bingenheimer.
Origins and career
The band formed in 1996, while Eric Erlandson's band Hole were on a reported hiatus, and recorded their only single, "I Hate the 90's" at a Seattle-based recording studio in 1996. A minute-long collection of clips from the session was released by drummer Dave Markey in 2008. The single was released a year later on the indie label Sympathy for the Record Industry. The band disbanded soon afterwards.
