Last Splash is the second album by indie rock band The Breeders, released August 1993. Originally formed as a side project for Pixies bassist Kim Deal, The Breeders quickly became her primary recording outlet.
Last Splash peaked at #33 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart. By June 1994, the album was certified Platinum by the RIAA for shipment in excess of one million units.
The title of the album is taken from a lyric from its lead single, "Cannonball". The video for "Cannonball" was directed by Spike Jonze and Kim Gordon, while the video for "Divine Hammer" was directed by the same two and Richard Kern.
The song "Cannonball" has been used in many movie trailers, including South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut and Dude, Where's My Car?.
A looped guitar sample of "S.O.S." was used by the English electronic music band The Prodigy in their 1996 hit single "Firestarter". A sample from "I Just Wanna Get Along" was used in another one track by The Prodigy called "World's on Fire" (Invaders Must Die album).
In 2003, Pitchfork Media listed the album at #64 on their list of The Top 100 Albums of the 1990s.
