When Milton Bradley threatened them with a lawsuit (they sold a toy named Shrinky Dinks), the group was obliged to alter its name to Sugar Ray after inking a record deal with Atlantic.

Eventually, Sugar Ray started to veer away from its Nu-Metal roots and take on a more mainstream sound. Although it sparked conversation in alternative and underground circles, their debut album “Lemonade and Brownies” didn’t have much of an influence on the general public.

With their 1997 album “Floored,” Sugar Ray had significantly more popularity. The popular song “Fly,” which featured the reggae performer Super Cat, was included on this album. The success of “Floored” was virtually assured by this one song, and the album was certified platinum.

Additionally, it led to a rise in the popularity of “Lemonade and Brownies.” The PlayStation and Nintendo 64 video game “Road Rash 3D” included two songs from Sugar Ray’s debut album. Mark McGrath also unexpectedly became a well-known celebrity and appeared on the covers of “Rolling Stone” and “Spin.”

He was also dubbed the “Sexiest Rocker” of 1998 by “People” magazine.  Even though many reviewers believed Sugar Ray was a one-hit wonder, the band released “14:59” in 1999; it was another popular record with big singles including “Every Morning” and “Someday.”

Although they never quite achieved the same levels of success they had at the start of their career, Sugar Ray continued to make albums during the ensuing years. Also, the group did a lot of touring. 2019 saw Sugar Ray make a release announcement for their most recent album, “Lil Yachty.”

The group’s desire to create music that fits into the so-called “Yacht Rock” genre is alluded to in the title, which also pays homage to the same-named rapper. The whole album by Sugar Ray was released after the single “Make It Easy” later in the year.

Mark has worked with several musicians throughout his musical career, including Everclear, Smash Mouth, Lit, and The Smashing Pumpkins. He issued a solo EP in 2015 titled “Summertime’s Coming.”
