    Nothing against the Galaxy... but iTunes isn't required on the iPod either; there're plenty of other free options.

    The 90's is my bread and butter; lots of good stuff. I didn't read all the posts but some of the essentials in my mind include Smashing Pumpkins, Oasis, blink 182, Everclear, Third Eye Blind, Radiohead, Toadies, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Foo Fighters, Marcy Playground. Many more too.

    I was in college when 'alternative rock' hit big, so 90's music has always been a big part of my musical life; I still listen to 90's era music on a regular basis.

    A couple that haven't been mentioned yet that unfortunately only got to put out a single album each, but what albums they were:

    Mad Season, "Above"
    Mother Love Bone, "Apple"

    Also, not really rock-related, but Dead Can Dance and Portishead put out some great albums in the 90's; two bands that, regardless of the listener's taste, I've never failed to turn people on to (YMMV of course).

    Faith No More. James. Aerosmith's 90s stuff was huge.

    Maybe so, but the Galaxy can be used as a USB storage device, so transferring movies and videos is as simple as drag and drop, zero software is necessary. Also, it isn't necessary to convert any video or audio files to play on the Galaxy, unlike the Apple products. Plays flash content online also.

    ooh, i can't believe i forgot about Portishead and Dead Can Dance (especially since i was listening to 'Memento' just yesterday!) speaking of Portishead and trip-hop, Tricky is another one i really liked: 'Pre-Millenium Tension', 'Maxinquaye' and 'Angels With Dirty Faces' were all brilliant albums! i haven't heard Tricky in years, i should really check out what he's up to these days.

    :lol: I honestly wasn't, though. I have had an Ipad, Ipod touch, numerous other Ipods (nano, the old big one, etc.) and recently acquired a Samsung Galaxy player and Galaxy Tablet. I can speak from experience that these Samsung pads destroy the Ipad when it comes to ease of use. I can't count the number of times Itunes has completely deleted my music library when updating to a new version. I actually tried to add an Ipod to my Itunes and it wouldn't let me because I already had another Ipod associated with the program. I contacted support and they recommended that I delete all of the Apple programs from my computer (including quicktime) and reinstall them! I went with a friend this Christmas season to return an Ipod touch to WalMart because he was having the same problem, and couldn't transfer any music to it. The lady at Walmart laughed and asked what the problem was, when he told her she said that he was the sixth person returning one for that reason that day. Also, good luck downloading torrents on an Ipod or Ipad.

    Ah, my teenage days....

    Can't believe no one has said DJ Shadow yet - Endtroducing is such a landmark album.

    My other favourite 90s records:

    Homogenic - Bjork
    Maxinquaye - Tricky
    Dummy - Portishead
    Homework - Daft Punk
    Mellon Collie - The Smashing Pumpkins
    OK Computer (obviously) - Radiohead
    Blur/Parklife - Blur
    Moon Safari - Air
    Grace - Jeff Buckley
    Elastica - Elastica
    In it for the Money - Supergrass
    Radiator - Super Furry Animals
    Black on Both Sides - Mos Def
    Dog Man Star - Suede
    Deserters Songs - Mercury Rev
    Massachusetts - Scud Mountain Boys
    XPander EP - Sasha
    In Utero - Nirvana

    Compiling this has been very Proustian. It made me realise that music, in the UK at least, has really disappeared from the collective cultural experience in the way that it was in the 90s and, I assume, earlier decades - probably because there's so much more of it around, and there's no longer a mainstream....
