I received two emails the past month about Marcy Playground, so here is some origin talk on them.
They are an American alternative rock band that emerged in the 1990s. It has three members: John Wozniak (lead vocals, guitar), Dylan Keefe (bass), and Shlomi Lavie (drums). The band is probably best known for their 1997 hit "Sex and Candy".
On their own website, they have said that the band is named after the Marcy Open grade school in Minneapolis. That is an alternative school that John Wozniak attended, and he chose the name because many of his songs were inspired by his childhood.
Some of their recordings include:
Indaba Remixes From Wonderland
Saint Joe On The School Bus
Sex & Candy (Phantom)
