Snot was a Southern Californian based rock act, formed in 1995, by founding members vocalist Lynn Strait along with guitarist Mikey Doling. Snot built a incredible following with their powerful performances on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, selling out every concert they played. The lines around the block and sold out shows attracted just about every record company in Los Angeles, leading to a vicious battle to see who would sign this band called Snot.
After a record company bidding war Snot eventually signed to Geffen records, finding a home with the likes of Guns N' Roses, Nirvana, and White Zombie and many more iconic names. Tragedy struck when their vocalist/charismatic front man Lynn Strait was killed in a car accident on December 11 1997, along with his dog Dobbs (who appeared on the cover of the album, which had been released earlier in the year). This completely crushed the band members and led to the band disbanding.
