It was the first major release by the band not to feature vocalist Chuck Mosley. On this album, Faith No More continued to advance their sound range, combining thrash metal funk hip hop progressive rock synthpop Destruction - Melcheor / Meganeura - Plastic Bird,  carousel music and hard rock   along with what has been described as "a black sense of humor ".
Faith No More underwent several line-up changes before releasing their first album, We Care a Lotreleased in and distributed through San Francisco-based label Mordam Records.
On the original vinyl release, the band is credited as "Faith. No More" on the album's liner notes, back cover, and on the record itself. Within a year the band signed up with Slash Records. The debut album's title track " We Care a Lot " was later rerecorded, for their follow-up album Introduce Yourself inand released as their first single.
Membership remained stable until vocalist Chuck Mosley was replaced by Mike Patton in The writing for the majority of the music for The Real Thing took place after the tour for Introduce Yourself.
You're Dead! The recording sessions also yielded several songs that did not appear on the album. The original version was released on Flexible Fiend 3 with Kerrang! I mean, when I heard the record I noticed subtle similarities, but when I saw that video it was like, 'Wait a second here, what the fuck?. If you're talking about long hair, rapping with his shirt off, then yeah, I can see similarities. But beyond that, I can't see any. I haven't talked to them since this whole thing started. We're really good friends with that band and I'd like to think they're doing It It doesn't bother me a bit.
I got a real big kick out of it to tell you the truth. I mean, if he's gonna talk about me in interviews, that's fine - it's free press! Either he's feeling inadequate or old or I don't know, but I have no reason to talk shit about him.
I think I shake my booty just a little bit fresher than he does. And if he would stop doing drugs I think he could outdance me. Maybe one day we'll have a breakoffjust breakdance. During the show, Patton had a beer bottle smashed over his right hand, causing lacerations to some tendons. However, the song never saw release as an official single, and the video was not released until its appearance on Video Croissant.
It is now considered a classic metal album by fans and The Way To Myself - True Colors - Focus On The Light alike.
Although released in mid, The Real Thing did not enter the Billboard until February after the release of the second single from the album, " Epic ". The album eventually peaked at number eleven on the chart in October following the reissue of "Epic" almost a year and half after the initial release of the album. It was eventually certified platinum in Sparrow - 3 - The Ghost You Gave To Me. That's when Mike Patton took over.
That's the one. We got a lot of our influences from The Real Thing. It showed everybody you could do heavy music and not be "metal".
It was something completely different. In the late 80s they were playing a kind of funk rock ; so were the Red Hot Chili Peppersbut we tended to lean more towards the minor progressions. When Patton joined in This Is The Real Thing - Various - It’s My Party – 48 Hits For Dancing they dropped a single called "From Out of Nowhere" and we were sold all the way.
At that point we became real fanatics — started researching the guy and going up to San Francisco to see them play. Every song on this record was super inspiring to us. The song structures and Patton's sense of melody — it was alternative metal at its best. The opening three tracks have appeared on every video and compilation album released by the band, except for Epic and Other Hitswhich lacks "From Out of Nowhere". All lyrics are written by Mike Pattonexcept where noted.
