Fritz's Corner

Album: Good As Dead (1996)
  • Fritz's Corner is the name of a bar in the band's hometown of Zion, Illinois, but it has nothing to do with this song and is never mentioned in the lyric. The song is about the boredom and frustration that can come from feeling trapped in a small town.
  • A track from the second Local H album, this song got modest airplay on altenative radio, but it was the track "Bound For The Floor" that lifted the band to national attention. Lead singer Scott Lucas continued to frequent Fritz's Corner long after they made their mark.
