Lit is a post-grunge band, based in Orange County, California. The band was formed in 1990 as a metal-oriented band, under the name Razzle, and gained a large following. A few years later, the group changed their style of music to grunge and their name to Stain, but due to other bands sharing a similar name, they changed their name to Lit in 1996. The group shot to stardom with the platinum album A Place in the Sun in 1999. Sun yielded the smash singles "My Own Worst Enemy," which held the number one position for three months, and received a Billboard Music Award for the biggest Modern Rock Song of 1999; "Ziplock"; and "Miserable", which was among the top ten most played songs of 2000 and famously featured Pamela Anderson in the video. They performed over 286 shows and toured worldwide in support of "A Place in the Sun." In addition to the Vans Warped Tour and a coveted slot on Woodstock 1999, the band toured with The Offspring, Garbage and No Doubt.
