“Remedy” is the second track by The Black Crowes from their second album, The Southern Harmony, and Musical Companion. It reached #1 on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart in May 1992 and stayed at number 1 for 11 weeks. On the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the song peaked at number 48. It also reached number 24 on the UK Singles Chart, becoming the band’s highest charting single in the UK. The song can be heard on the fictional radio station “Liberty Rock Radio 97.8” in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV. The song was also used in commercials promoting the ESPN series Tilt. It is also used as the theme song for the Howard Stern Wrap-Up Show on Sirius XM Radio. The key riff of the song is lifted from the vocal chant which runs through the first half of Parliament’s “Night of the Thumpasorus Peoples” from the 1975 album Mothership Connection.
Its video, directed by Pete Angelus, appeared in an episode of Beavis and Butt-Head in 1994.
