Rusted Root is a 1990s jam band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania known for their fusion of Grateful Dead-style bluegrass with a strong percussion section that draws from African and Middle Eastern influences. Their debut album was 1994's When I Woke; it was a hit on college radio. Along with their increasingly well-known live shows, Rusted Root began working on contributions to the movies Twister and Home for the Holidays. Their next studio LP was Remember, followed by Rusted Root. Remember reached the Top 40 in the US, while Rusted Root found its sale buoyed by the use of Rusted Root's cover of "You Can't Always Get What You Want" (The Rolling Stones) on an episode of Ally McBeal.
