So Who Was The Best Band Of Th 90's?

Recommended Posts

had a discusion with my brother

*again, ms, forgot a lot of things, its the hell of a thing*

and yadda yadda, began talking aout best bands of a the 90's

we both agreed, Nirana, kind of overated at this point

lot of fanboys talking how important they were and much like The Beatles, you DO NOT bash them.

ever

i said

FUCKING EVER

so we agreed Stone Temple Pilots way good

compared to what they know today, Jonas Brothers what are the "kids" consdering "good music"

so who do you consider the best band of the 90s?

going to rest in the sitting room.

i'm so damn tired.

post script, when did the 90's become retro?

pearl jam clearly had the most substance and they're still around today. hard to discount that. radiohead seemed to do alright, as well.

But seriously...

 

Pumpkins

RHCP

Dare I say MGB AND OLP

Weezer (come on guys, blue and pinkerton?)

 

There's of course PJ's, SG,

But Rush will be the best band of every decade.

OLP turned pretty badly by the 2000's. Are they even still together now?

OLP is still together, and they managed to give us Naveed, Clumsy, AND Happiness (just in the nick of time, september 1999)

 

Also, Pixies. Yes, they released music in the very early 90's, so they are a 90's band.

My favorite bands in the 90s were Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Alice in Chains, Dream Theater and OLP, probably in that order. I didn't even hear of MGB until Beautiful Midnight (I don't think many Americans did), so I had to "catch" back up with his older material.

I would like to throw "Collective Soul" into the ring.

 

Hints, Aligations & things left unsaid.

Dosage

Are all great albums

 

I loved their crunchy guitar rifts back then and their still around today.

I can't decide on a clear #1. But I nominate:

 

Smashing Pumpkins ("Mellon Collie..." had so many frickin great songs that several of them didn't even get to be singles)

REM (4 excellent albums in a row)

Beastie Boys (15 year career, not 1 unexcellent album)

 

Suprised nobody said The Hip (a contender). OLP had catchy tunes coming out their ass but the lead singer seems like a douche so fuck them. RHCP were mostly annoying (Give It Away, Love Rollercoaster...blelch) until the amazing "Californication" (1999). Nirvana is the most important in terms of influencing an industry, but a bit overrated musically. Radiohead: The Bends = amazing, Ok Computer = overrated. Pearl Jam = pretty good but c'mon. Metallica = 2 really great albums (Load was not metal but still excellent) + Garage Inc. but meh not quite enough, + Reload mostly sucked dick. Oasis = 1 good album, 1 great album, then they sucked. Rage = great band, they're up there. Offspring = started with a bang, ended with a thud. Barenaked Ladies = enough hits to get props. Soundgarden = uhm no.
