Friends and Family by Trik Turner.

Chances are you probably haven’t heard this song before. But if you were listening to rock stations back in 2001, you might remember this track making its way up the nightly countdowns.

It reminds me of my middle school years, not because of the lyrics, but because of its release time. It sorta has an Everlast feel to it, remember “What It’s Like”? Yeah. But this song is all about optimism and going wherever life takes us with strength and faith. It also stresses the importance of friends and family.

This was the bands most popular song and their only one on the radio. Not only did it do well on the nightly countdowns, it also made it to the top ten on Billboard’s Modern Rock chart. As far as I know, the band is no longer together anymore due to creative differences. But if you like the song, there’s two versions of the video on You Tube so check it out!
