Faith No More released the album 'The Real Thing' 30 years ago today (June 20, 1989).
Faith No More's third studio album The Real Thing would be the first major release from the band featuring new lead singer Mike Patton, who replaced original singer Chuck Mosley. The album is Faith No More's most successful release to date, and it's considered a metal classic among fans and critics. The Real Thing would go platinum in the U.S. for sales of over 1 million copies featuring singles "From Out of Nowhere", "Epic", and "Falling to Pieces". The video for "Epic" would become an MTV classic. Great memories as a young kid in school rockin out to this album. Do you own or have you ever owned a copy of this classic?
