In honor of South Carolina making the Final Four for the first time, here are the five best Hootie and the Blowfish songs ever released.

Wait, what?

Yes, those mid-90s Southern pop rockers are on the mind today thanks to Darius Rucker, the lead singer of the band who was caught crying at Madison Square Garden as the Gamecocks punched their ticket to the Big Dance’s final weekend.

Anyway, here you go:

5. Hold My Hand

4. Only Wanna Be With You

3. I Go Blind (see, there’s something not on Cracked Rear View!)

2. Time

1. Let Her Cry

Anything we missed?

Yes, 80 percent of the songs are on their debu album, but they don’t call ‘em one hit wonders for nothing!

And just to be sure, I listened to their second album this morning and found it very listenable but entirely unmemorable.

Hey, you’re only 12 once.
