Monday Music Rewind: Hope in a Hopeless World – Widespread Panic

Here is a song that takes on some new meaning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The song appeared on the album Bombs & Butterflies in 1997 and quickly rose on the charts. You can buy the album here on Amazon (affiliate link).

Widespread Panic is an American rock band from Athens, Georgia. The current lineup includes guitarist/singer John Bell, bassist Dave Schools, drummer Duane Trucks, percussionist Domingo “Sunny” Ortiz, keyboardist John “JoJo” Hermann, and guitarist Jimmy Herring. The band’s original guitarist and primary songwriter, Michael Houser, died of pancreatic cancer in 2002.
