Slash's Snakepit It's Five O'Clock Somewhere

It's Five O'Clock Somewhere is the debut album by the rock group Slash's Snakepit, released on February 14, 1995 (see 1995 in music). The album went platinum worldwide. The album title came from when Slash wanted a drink in an airport, but bars don't open before 5 PM. A bartender said "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" and the rest is history. Slash originally wrote some of these songs for his old band Guns N' Roses to use for the album which was intended to follow "The Spaghetti Incident?", but Axl Rose disliked them. Slash then used the songs he had written for the Slash's Snakepit album. The artwork for the album is a photograph of a spray-painted wall in an apartment, which was created by Slash's brother. If you look very closely towards the bottom right of the picture, underneath the cigarette, a plug socket can be seen.
