You just know someone has to mention Cheap Trick when the article is titled, "“A great time to be alive and own a guitar”: Chicago’s 1990s alt-rock explosion"

Blake Smith (Fig Dish, Caviar) seems to be a big fan.  My favorite quote:
"I remember talking to Jim Ellison one night at a Cheap Trick show on my birthday, and I was like, “I love ‘Renee Remains The Same.’” He was like, “You should, it’s the greatest pop song written in the last 10 years.“  So I said, “But it sounds exactly like ‘Downed’ by Cheap Trick. It’s actually sort of an homage, is it not?”"
