The San Diego-based band Slightly Stoopid was formed in 1995 by childhood friends Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty.
The band eventually caught the attention of Sublime's Bradley Nowell, who invited them to play at the Foot Hill Tavern. Immediately
impressed with their work, Slightly Stoopid was quickly signed to Nowell's record label, Skunk Records. The band started working
on their first studio album, "Slightly $toopid," which was released in 1996, and included a hidden tracked called "Prophet,"
which featured Bradley Nowell on bass.
After releasing a few more records, Slightly Stoopid had their breakthrough album
with 2005's "Closer to the Sun." The album made it to the Billboard 200 chart, and it marked a turning point for the band's
career. Following on their streak of success, Slightly Stoopid hit the studio to begin recording their fifth album, "Chronchitis,"
which was released in 2007, and it featured a number of guest artists including Money Mark, G Love, Angelo Moore, and Toko
Tasi. The successful album entered the Billboard 200 chart at the number 55 position, and it went on to sell approximately
12,000 copies during the first week of its release.
Slightly Stoopid's most recent release is their 2012 album, "Top
of the World." Incorporating more musical influences, this album also included a number of guest musicians, like Barrington
Levy, Don Carlos, Ian Neville, Karl Denson, and Angela Hunte. "Top of the World" reached the number 13 position on the Billboard
200, and number 4 on the Rock Albums and Alternative Albums chart, becoming the band's highest-charting album to date. The
album garnered Slightly Stupid an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, which allowed them to gain even more exposure.
