Everybody was the debut album from NYC band Gods Child. The band members (Chris Seefried on vocals, guitars, and mellotron, Gary DeRosa on keyboards, Bip Ruda on bass, and Alex Alexander on drums, percussion, and loops), all hail from the burroughs of the Big Apple, and cite Patty Smyth and the Velvet Underground as their main inspirations. However, the best tracks on this album (such as "Wolf," which features spiky, over-amped guitars against a stressed-out string section, and "Stone Horses," which kicks off with a funky mellotron before sliding into a smooth, danceable beat) show the unmistakable influence of Ireland's finest export[1]. Their highest honor came when one of its tracks, "Everybody"1", charted in two Billboard charts simultaneously in 1994. "Everybody's 1" peaked at #18 on the Mainstream Rock chart and #25 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart.

The album was released on cd and vinyl and produced by band members Chris Seefried and Gary DeRosa under the pseudonym "Bullfrog and the Elephant". Everybody comes from the Zooropa school. This result is not surprising, considering that Everybody was mixed by Robbie Adams, who also worked on Zooropa.
