The perfect pop song.
Most of my faves are already listed but a couple of big ones (to me) left out:
And are we really 9 pages into this without a single hip hop song? Fixed that for you:
And yes, a couple more indie tunes that meant a lot to me . . . What can I say, the 90s were the high point of quality indie pop/rock.
RIP Dime and Vinnie!
son volt's trace was an iconic album in my opinion
Well, without looking at anything but what's on page one, I can see a lot of you have different memories of the 90's than I do. For me, mainstream rock music hit rock bottom during that era. I was a child of the late 70's and 80's, so a lot of what got MTV and VH-1 airplay did little for me.
But, there was a lot of good music during that era, if you were willing to go looking for it. First of all, there was Djam Karet, a great instrumental band from Claremont, California who've released a continuously consistent string of albums since the mid 80's. Here's a track from their 1991 album Burning The Hard City:
and one from their 1997 album The Devouring:
Another great band from that era was Mercury Rev, though I really only like their first two albums:
And then you have King Crimson, who released the brilliant Thrak in 1995:
Forget what turned into mainstream grunge, the 90s were a great era for experimental rock. Three super influential post rock tracks from the 90s . . .
My theme song
When I argue, I still see shapes, 20 years later...
This just all seems like a normal fashion show these days...
This is one of the ninetiesest songs ever...
I was just a bit too young to catch this lot at the time...
The 90's wasn't all grunge and nu-metal...
I think guitar based rock is about to make a huge comeback.
A few more...
