This was the first Spin Doctors single, and the song that got the band noticed. Signed to Epic Records, the band was an anomaly: a New York act that played music that sounded like it was from Seattle. Epic didn't give them much respect, and when Pocket Full of Kryptonite
, their first studio album, was released in August 1991, they did little to promote it.
A breakthrough came when the Vermont radio station WEQX used part of the Spin Doctors song "Big Fat Funky Booty
" in a promo they produced to promote a local concert with the band and some acts from the area. Listeners phoned in asking to hear the promo, so the station began playing Spin Doctors songs and also championing the band, making an appeal to Epic that helped convince the label to put some promotion behind them.
With a push from Epic, other stations put "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" in rotation, and it made a slow climb up the charts, peaking at #17 in the US the last week of 1992.
1993 was the big year for the Spin Doctors - they headlined a tour with Soul Asylum and Screaming Trees, and their next single, "Two Princes
," rose to #7 in America.
