Rotting Piñata is the debut studio album by American rock band Sponge, released on August 2, 1994 through Work Records. Hit singles from this album, such as Plowed and Molly 16 Candles Down the Drain, helped launch the band's career and the album was certified gold by the RIAA. Rotting Piñata is Sponge's best selling album, having sold more than 500,000 copies. Although released in August 1994, the album did not enter the Billboard 200 until May 1995, following the success of its second single. Sponge - Rotting Piñata 1994 - Full Album. Grunge 60th. Rotting Pinata. SME от лица компании Columbia BMI - Broadcast Music Inc. That background is evident throughout Rotting Piñata, the debut from this Detroit-based alternative hard rock band. Sponge's sense of alternative rock goes back as far as Pearl Jam, or maybe only Stone Temple Pilots, judging from the hit single Plowed. For an STP ripoff band, they're very adept - the chords cluster together, vocalist Vinnie sings directly from his gut, and the whole thing barrels ahead, ignoring whatever's in its way.

I've got a question for anyone who can give me an answer about this album. First, let me say that SPONGE was a surprisingly refreshing new band when they got their 1s airplay on the local radio. The obvious songs which come to mind are "Plowed","Rotting Pinata" & my personal favorite on this debut album... "Molly". Now, shortly after this debut album came out, I had the chance to pick up a 2nd copy on CD for super cheap, so I did. Well sometime after that, hard times fell upon me I had to sell some of my music collection for income & 1 of the 2 copies of this album got sold. I kept the newer unopened copy and eventually opened it & listened to it. But my fabvorite track "Molly" sounded different. It wasn't my ears going bad. It wasn't my over active imagination. The song was different. It was sung different. Can anyone back me up on this & more importantly, explain to me why this is? Not that the newer version is terrible or anything like that, but the first version was better in my opinion & it's been so long now, I can't remember how the first version was sung. Can anyone help me out and shed some light on this puzzling delema?
Wow! Thanks for the reply. Although it's only been just over 6 months since my question was posted, it seems like years ago, or at least 1 year!! I appreciate yourreply which sounds pretty convincing. I know that many many bands have songs which are edited & remixed & even re-recorded for such radio mixes. And i guessit's for the best for the bands & stations and all who're involved. But sometimes it just doesn't sit well with the fans. I knew I wasn't hearing things & going crazy. Well, I am going crazy, but for other reasons too numerous to list here!! lol I appreciate your reply. It makes sense. Even when sometimes the remixes don't. Later.PS - If you or anyone who reads this has a copy of one of the original first pressings and/or releases of this disc & would part with it for a few bucks, let me know. You can contact me through here. But you have to convince me that it is an original first pressing/release with the original 1st version of the song "Molly". How you are going to do that remains to be seen though. Later.
You're not crazy. The radio single version was different than the early album version due to a re-mix after the single broke. The biggest difference is noticeable during the vocal-only break which is mixed MUCH quieter on the original album version, but there are other differences as well. I don't know whether early release CDs had one mix vs the other, but this remix sounds like what you're referring to.
