The group was formed in September 1996 in Memphis, Tennessee. While Memphis was an unlikely place for a grunge / nü-metal band, Saliva was able to follow in the tradition of crafting hard rock songs in radio-friendly format popularized by the likes of Creed and Nickelback. After competing in the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences Grammy Showcase competition, where they advanced to the final round in New York City, the group self-released their self-titled debut album which sold over 10,000 copies in their region, prompting Island Records to take notice.

- LyricsAll those Saturdays when kids go out and play
Yo, I was up in my room I let the stereo blaze
Wasn't faded, not jaded, just a kid
With a pad and pen and a big imagination
All this, I seek, I find, push the envelope to the line
- LyricsI hear a voice say "Don't be so blind"
It's telling me all these things
That you would probably hide
Am I your one and only desire?
Am I the reason you breathe
- LyricsLadies and gentlemen please
Would you bring your attention to me?
For a feast for your eyes to see
An explosion of catastrophe
Like nothing youve ever seen before
- LyricsNow has come the day
That I take the lead and I make you follow
Toast the champagne
'Cause I came for greed and not for tomorrow
If it feels good
- LyricsIn one moment I'm goin' all the way
I make my poetry everyday
And I'm frozen comin' right on time
I froze my mind with that serious rhyme
And I'm open comin' up inside
