If you’ve been a record collector for any notable length of time, you’ll probably have a few albums in your collection of — well — questionable quality.

Stone Temple Pilots
Stone Temple Pilots is an alt-rock band out of San Diego, California that formed in 1989. Their original name was Mighty Joe Young. The band is best known for their first three albums: Core (1992), Purple (1994), and Tiny Music… Songs From the Vatican Gift Shop (1999).
These albums were definitive alt-rock with hints of grunge and even psychedelic rock.
They have been active since 1989 with the exception of a hiatus that began in 2003 and ended with their reuniting in 2008.
After reuniting in, several internal struggles caused strive within the band until frontman Scott Weiland was fired from the band in early 2013. On December 3, 2015, Weiland passed away due to an accidental overdose.
You can read a more comprehensive bio of the band on their band’s Wikipedia Page.
