Music / Eve 6

Go To

Eve 6 is an alternative rock band from Southern California, who are most well known for their hit singles "Inside Out" and "Here's to the Night". They disbanded in 2004, returned in 2007 with a new lineup, and finally reunited with all three original members in March 2011. A forth album followed a year later.

Their name is a reference to one of the genetically engineered "Eves" from The X-Files episode "Eve". Eve #6 made a remark about biting a guard's eyeball.


The current members of Eve 6 are:

  • Max Collins – lead vocals, bass, guitar, piano
  • Jon Siebels – guitar, backing vocals
  • Tony Fagenson – drums, percussion, guitar, keyboards, programming, backing vocals

  • Eve 6 (1998)
  • Horrorscope (2000)
  • It's All in Your Head (2003)
  • Speak in Code (2012)

Eve 6 contains examples of:

  • Anti-Love Song: "Promise"
    I promise not to try not to let you down.
  • Break-Up Song: "Girlfriend"
    • A lot of their songs have elements of this, including "Enemy":
    I can't get this shit off my mind, I just wanna be alright, so just tell me nothing's wrong, then get undressed and spend the night.
    Kiss your apocalips for the last last time, run away run away run away I can't find, anytime you think it changed your mind, anytime you want, jump back to me anytime.
    • And "Inside Out":
    Wanna put my tender heart in a blender watch it spin around to a beautiful oblivion, rendezvous then I'm through with you.
    Your heinous Highness broke her hymen, hey man try and quit your crying, I know she broke your heart but to calm try to calm down.
  • Cool Pet: The singer in "Trust Me" owns an "endangered cat".
  • Double Entendre: From "BFGF"
    She's doing what she does best
    Sweating in the back of a Cutlass
    Here she comes!
  • Fiery Redhead: Max
  • The Four Chords of Pop: "Think Twice."
  • Gratuitous French: Lampshaded in "BFGF"
    She says "c'est la vie." Not sure what that means.

  • I Need a Freaking Drink: The singer in "Victoria"
    I need another tequila!
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: From "Promise"
    Why you gotta keep the fan on high when it's cold outside? Just want to let you know I'm still a fan, get it?
    • From "Anytime", "Kiss your apocalips for the last last time."
  • Non-Appearing Title: "Leech", "Showerhead", "Tongue Tied" and "Nocturnal".
  • Post-Grunge: Ur-Example. They were the first band to record a more polished version of the grunge sound with slicker production and more radio-friendly hooks. During their hiatus, some of the members even produced tracks for similar bands like Puddle of Mudd.
  • Refrain from Assuming: The title of their debut single is not "Heart in a Blender" or "Rendezvous" or "Swallow My Pride". Or even "Beautiful Oblivion". It's "Inside Out".
  • Self-Titled Album
  • Shout-Out: The line "Despite all my rage, I'm just a rat in a cage" appears in "Curtain", and "The future is so bright, you're wearing shades" in "Lion's Den".

  • Shower of Love: The premise of the song "Showerhead".
  • Something Completely Different: It's All in Your Head. Unfortunately, poor sales of this album caused the band to lose their contract with RCA Records. This, plus the exhaustion from their incredibly fast rise to fame, convinced the band to take a break in 2004.
  • This Is a Song: "This is an open road song."
  • Your Cheating Heart: Part of the apparently routine problems in "On The Roof Again".
    Things were copacetic till she caught him, things were cool and collected till she found him erected with another.

How well does it match the trope?
