Iiiiit's Friday! You all know what that means: partying... partying... YEAH! Also: another exciting '90s video flashback.

Maybe it's because it's raining in NYC right now, or maybe it's because I like dressing up as Bee Girl for Halloween, but I can't think of anything I'd rather post today than Blind Melon's 1992 hit, "No Rain."

Propelled by the popularity of its weird video (oh, the '90s), "No Rain" quickly became the alt-rock band's most popular single, peaking at No. 20 on the U.S. Pop charts and No. 1 on Billboard's Modern Rock chart. The iconic video features Heather DeLoach as the adorable tap dancing "Bee Girl," who after being laughed off the stage at a talent show, runs off to find a beautiful meadow full of other dancing bee people who will accept her for who she is. She just wanted to find a place where she could be her cute, dorky, bumblebee self, you know? I think we all feel that way sometimes.

Unfortunately, the band's history took a darker turn in 1995 when lead singer Shannon Hoon passed away and the group eventually broke up in 1999. However, the remaining members of Blind Melon recently reunited with a new singer to play a few shows, so maybe we haven't seen the last of them.

Watch Blind Melon's video for "No Rain" below and keep the memory of Shannon's playful personality, musical talent and long, beautiful hair alive.
