Some bands are destined to burn out and others to fade away. Originally called The Six and opening for Slipknot in their home town of Des Moines Iowa, Downthesun inked a deal with Slipknot’s Maggot Recordings label after their original label London Sire Records folded. The band were active between 1999 and 2003 with a single self titled album to their name that dropped in 2002. It includes the song “Lucas Toole” which was written about the late-70’s serial killing duo of Henry Lee Lucus and Ottis Toole. But it’s lead single and album opener “Medicated” that aired on both Fuse and MTV2 that is today’s throwback tune for this week!
