  • Alexakis was 30 when he formed the band. He is 8 years older than Montoya and Eklund.
  • Alexakis' older brother, George, died of a drug overdose when Art was 12.
  • The band is in the 2000 movie Loser, starring Jason Biggs and Mena Suvari (Both from American Pie). Part of the plot is Biggs trying to get Everclear tickets to impress Suvari.
  • Christina Hendricks, who played Joan Holloway in the TV show Mad Men, starred in Everclear's "One Hit Wonder" video from 1998.

    <3 ~@~tHe luCky frOg~@~
  • Minerva from Portland - Mostly, OrTri-Polar is Craig's new band and The Oohlas is Greg's new band. It is rumored that Art has filed bankruptcy for $3 million, however this has not been confirmed by any reliable source. Still there has been little news about Art - unless you want to pay $35 to be on the everclearonline.com boards. Though I'll be a fan of him 'til I die, frankly, I'm not gonna pay to promote the bastard.
  • Lauren from Hfx, MaArt Alexikis (now a Democrat delegate for Portland) has "re-made" the band. They are currently touring and working on new material. They covered "This Land is Your Land" during the election.
