Today marks the 17th anniversary of Sunny Day Real Estate's first LP Diary.  The album remains Sunny Day Real Estate's all time best selling album and is often recognized as one of Sub Pop's all time best releases with the sixth most amount of albums sold from Sub Pop's catalog.  

Back in the early '90s Sunny Day Real Estate were already expanding upon the already prevalent grunge sound trying to make it more melodic in its nature.  The band is often credited as being one of the most instrumental groups to establish the emo genre.  Certainly Sunny Day Real Estate was not the first band to be called emo, but suffice it to say Diary helped shaped a whole genre and generation.  

A grand happy anniversary goes out to Sunny Day Real Estate and Sub Pop for this tremendous achievement!
