Nada Surf is an American alternative rock group formed in 1992. The New York band consists of Matthew Caws (guitar, vocals), Ira Elliot (drums, vocals) and Daniel Lorca (bass, vocals).
The band is best known for the song “Popular” from their 1996 album High/Low. The song reached #11 on the US Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and propelled the album to #63 on the Billboard 200. Each of the verses in “Popular” are extracted from the 1964 guide “Penny’s Guide to Teen-Age Charm and Popularity” by former teen television actress Gloria Winters - and is sarcastically spoken - initially in a calm, deadpan voice that gradually builds Kinison-style in teen angst and rage.
