Release

The album was met with moderate commercial success and favorable reviews. The single "Sick of Myself" reached #2 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart and appeared on the top 100 pop song charts of the day. Critic David Browne of Entertainment Weekly, who included 100% Fun on his year's-best list, wrote in his review that it "makes you feel as if a good pop hook can solve any crisis." The title of the album was derived from Kurt Cobain's 1994 suicide note.

Details

The song "Sick of Myself" was covered by the band Bowling for Soup for their album Bowling for Soup Goes to the Movies. In 2005, indie rock band Death Cab For Cutie also performed a cover of the song for NPR's World Cafe.
