Stone Temple Pilots knew from the start that “Plush” would be their breakout hit.

Bassist Robert DeLeo said as much in a recent YouTube interview: “Plush – we kinda knew that’s gonna be the song, and we kind of buried it on the record cause we knew what Atlantic was gonna do“.

DeLeo says having a hit song under their belts brought a lot of pressure to succeed – but also gave them more creative leeway on their follow-up album Purple.

Ever hear a new song for the first time and immediately know it would be a big hit?
