Matchbox Twenty Yourself Or Someone Like You Turns 20

Matchbox Twenty’s now classic debut ‘Yourself Or Someone Like You’ turned 20 years old this weekend.

‘Yourself Or Someone Like You was released on 1 October 2016. The album sold over 12 million copies in the USA alone, another 560,000 in Australia and reached no 1 in Australia and no 5 in the USA yet the English somehow managed to miss it.

The centerpiece of the Matchbox Twenty debut was the hit song ‘Push’.

‘Push’ started a string of hits off the album ‘3.A.M.’, ‘Real World’, ‘Back 2 Good’ and then the first single that slipped past without notice ‘Long Day’ gathered new momentum.

“Congrats to my former bandmates and all the people that supported us for all these years!! Today is the 20th anniversary of “YOSLY”,” a proud Adam Gaynor said in a Facebook post.
