Floored is the second studio album by American rock band Sugar Ray, released on June 24, 1997. It includes the hit song "Fly", and another moderately successful single, "RPM". Two versions of "Fly" are found on the album, one of them featuring reggae artist Super Cat.

Music[edit]

Floored fuses metal, funk, reggae, punk rock and rap. Due to the massive amounts of strong language in the songs "Cash" and "American Pig", some copies contain the "Parental Advisory" label. It contains the early label that can be peeled off the case. It is their last album to do so and their last heavy album before they moved toward a more pop friendly approach.[1]
