Simply put, Hum was one of the most underappreciated bands of the '90s. Sure, the Champaign, Illinois, band's "Stars" video landed on Beavis and Butt-head, and the song itself experienced a resurgence in popularity in 2007 due to its placement in a Cadillac ad. But the space-rock quartet was so much more than that (admittedly impressive) five-minute slab of guitar rock. Having never really gotten its due originally, Hum has remained mostly broken up since 2000, reuniting every few years for some one-off shows — we should make it clear that this is something we are perfectly OK with. Choosing to skip a Hum performance is one of the two biggest mistakes you could ever make. The second? Choosing to attend a Hum performance but forgetting your earplugs at home. You've been warned.
