Chicago-based alternative rock band Wilco released Summerteeth in the spring of 1999. The record is this week's tracks from the past.

Summerteeth is Wilco's third album. It was highly anticipated upon release because of the commercial and musical success of the band's previous albums.

Selling approximately 200,000 copies, the album was also considered a commercial success. And the critics enjoyed what they heard. Summerteeth earned a perfect 5 of 5 stars from Allmusic, an A from "Entertainment Weekly," a 9.4/10 from Pitchfork Media, and 3.5/5 from Rolling Stone.

Wilco released two singles from Summerteeth, "Can't Stand It" and "A Shot in the Arm."

The album is full of great songs, but one of the gems is "Via Chicago." From the beginning when Jeff Tweedy sings, "I dreamed about killing you again last night, and it felt all right to me," you'll be hooked.
