Waiting for the Punchline is Extreme's fourth album, which was released in 1995. It is known by fans as a distinctively raw sounding record - especially when compared to the big production of the two previous albums - with a significant influence from grunge and alternative rock, while still showcasing guitarist Nuno Bettencourt's talents. Due to its lyrics focused heavily on social matters (ranging from religion to fame) it is often cited as a concept album.

Notes

Lyrically, this seemed one of their most interesting albums. Whereas their first album was powered by several tits and ass tributes and "Pornograffitti's" success was fueled by a vapid love ballad, Waiting's lyrics were almost exclusively philosophical ponderances on subjects like fame, religion and physical appearances. While Gary Cherone is never going to be compared to Dylan, his even attempting to discuss such subjects stands out in the realm of hard rock (and makes his later assignment to a "good time rock and roll" band like Van Halen even more questionable.)

However, despite the fact that "Waiting For The Punchline" was an admirable evolutionary step for Extreme, it ultimately proved the finishing blow for the band. After shoddy sales on "Waiting For The Punchline", Nuno left the band and Gary Cherone replaced Sammy Hagar in Van Halen. Grunge's final victory had been to eradicate the best of the breed.
