Prepare for Festapalooza With the 5 Best Filter Songs
Filter will rock Shreveport, Louisiana on September 14 at the 99X/Redd’s Apple Ale Festapalooza, powered by Bossier City Harley Davidson. Make sure you don’t get left in the dust by brushing up on lyrics from some of Filter’s best songs so you can sing along at the show.
Here’s our list of the 5 best Filter songs to get you prepared for this kick-ass rock fest!
Take a Picture
This is from the 1999 album "Title of Record" and stands out as one of the most unique songs in the band's history.
It's a laid-back, feel-good song you can sing along with and the vocals are less gravelly in this one. There are probably only a few people who haven't heard it.
What Do You Say
It's the first single off their brand new album "The Sun Comes Out Tonight" and one we're currently rocking on 99X. You'll hear it many more times before Festapalooza gets here, but the official video for it will help hammer those song lyrics into your brain.
Hey Man Nice Shot
From the 1995 self-produced debut album "Short Bus," it's one of the band's most recognizable tunes. It's dark, moody and features the scream-y vocals Richard Patrick is known for.
Food for thought: the number of times the song title has been used by sports fans and hunting enthusiasts is likely in the billions.
(Can't You) Trip Like I Do
This is a reworking of "Trip Like I Do," a song featured on The Crystal Method's debut album "Vegas."
The track was recorded for the 1997 film adaptation of the "Spawn" comic book series. Co-written by Filter, the song and accompanying video featured the band and its signature vocals and guitars. Check it out.
Another tune off the "Short Bus" album. It's got that filtered (see what we did there?!) megaphone-style vocal sound to it that was popular in the 90s. Oh, and it's a seriously rockin' song in its own right.
