While initially rising to fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s, further releases from the band expressed a variety of influences, including psychedelic rock, bossa nova, and classic rock.The band's evolution throughout the 1990s and early 2000s involved periods of commercial highs and lows, brought about in part by Weiland's well-publicized struggles with drug addiction.The band managed to convince Dean to play guitar for Swing, completing the original STP lineup.Dean reportedly refused to continue playing in a band called "Swing", and shortly afterwards the band became Mighty Joe Young.However, after a few years Allin went his separate way pursuing other interests.

At the time, Dean was a successful businessman who had left behind his previous career as a musician, but still played guitar as a hobby.The band's debut album, Core (1992), was a commercial success, and they went on to become one of the most commercially successful bands of the 1990s, selling more than 13 million albums in the United States and 35 million worldwide.The band released four more studio albums: Purple (1994), Tiny Music... 4 (1999), and Shangri-La Dee Da (2001), before separating in 2002, after which the band members partook in various projects (most notably Velvet Revolver and Army of Anyone).In 1992, Stone Temple Pilots signed with Atlantic Records.
