Sponge has proven to be one of the Motor City's heaviest hitters after gaining  international notoriety with their debut album "Rotting Piñata” (Sony). Emerging  from Detroit with hits like "Plowed" and "Molly (16 Candles)," Sponge received  massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on  MTV. Both “Plowed” and “Molly” hit #5 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Charts,  catapulting “Rotting Piñata” to Gold, and ultimately Platinum status. 

Sponge's follow up album, the critically lauded “Wax Ecstatic” (Columbia) scored  additional top ten Billboard hits including "Wax Ecstatic" and "Have You Seen  Mary?" The band’s music was also featured in popular movies “The Craft,”  “Chasing Amy,” “Mall Rats,” and “Empire Records.” Sponge’s star continued to rise  with network appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman and the Conan  O’Brien Show. 

Sponge’s subsequent releases “New Pop Sunday,” “For All The Drugs in The  World,” “The Man,” “Galore Galore,” and “Destroy the Boy ” showcased the band’s  swirling sonic attack rooted in 70's glam, and of course, the Motor City influences  of The Stooges, The MC5, and Motown—but still sounding distinctly like no one  else. 

“Plowed” continues to be the band’s signature rock track, having been spotlighted  on Guitar Hero’s “Warriors of Rock – 90’s Rock Track Pack” – and on the Paper  Jamz Guitar Series 2, in addition to the soundtrack for the Gerard Butler surf movie  “Chasing Mavericks.”
