    It occurred to me we are about to pass another decade. Now the 90's seems in the distant past, 1999 was 20 years ago! Anyway, there were some rockin' bands then. Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Blues Traveler, Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sonic Youth, etc.



    Jane's Addiction



    Alice in Chains




    Stone Temple Pilots, aka STP

    I also really like the Alt Country bands from that period. Jayhawks, Wilco, Whiskeytown, etc.

    When a decade is mentioned I immediately think of certain musical trends - 20s-90s. Maybe the oughts will be remembered as the last rock and roll decade with the White Stripes, Black Keys, Hives, etc. Or maybe not? I'm old now so it's probably just that, but 20 years seems to have passed without a major trend in music. What are the 2010s?

    Crap popular country, crap hip-hop, crap pop...and I don’t detest those genres, just haven’t heard much that inspires me in a while from them.

    Good retro soul (Leon Bridges, Vintage Trouble, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, St. Paul & the Broken Bones), some good alt-country (Shakey Graves) and some good alt-pop (Houndmouth).

    This is about the only fresh new band from the'90s that gave me hope that there was some tradition still carrying on


    At least until they started getting a bit over-ripe and uninteresting.

    From what little I’ve heard of current music I just know the 10’s have a lot of electronic music like dubstep, and sad emo rappers are popular, and as mentioned above lots of hip hop and to me not so great country music that just sounds like toned down hard rock with country esq lyrics

    Don't forget Fugazi, Weezer and established bands who were killing it like Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Beastie Boys, REM.

    The rap scene was cool. The rock scene was cool. The indie scene was cool.

    I graduated high school in ‘92. During my senior year, grunge took over the world. I didn’t get it then. My musical tastes were (and are) more traditional. I was usually driving around listening to Cream, Hendrix, the Doors, Stones (lots of Stones, even now), Deep Purple...

    But even then, I enjoyed the RHCP, and my favorite “grunge” songs were No Rain and Runaway Train. And, of course, I loved the Black Crowes... just not as much as the Stones.

    PS: I strongly believe that 1999 was the last great watershed year for pop and mainstream rock.

    The Toadies are one of my favorites from the era. They were one hell of a live band in their prime. They probably still are.

    My thoughts exactly. Except for the don't detest part. I detest crap-hop-hick-pop, all forms of it. It all sounds the same to me now, anyway. Can't stand it for a second.

    OMG I hate auto-tune. I don't care how 'good' a performer is. As soon as I hear the slightest hint of autotune anywhere in the production, I'm done with them. Done.

    The Crowes did get uninteresting at the time certain albums were released. When Three Snakes was released... it was not want I wanted from them. But I picked it back up about 10 years later, and it became one of my favorite Crowes albums. Same with the other albums after that... and the ever revolving door of band members. None of them resonated with me at the time they were released, but I picked each of them up a few years later when I was bored... and ended up really liking each and every one of them. I even like all of the Rich Robinson solo releases and side projects.

    Around here, the rock'n'roll station playin mostly late 80's and 90's rock tunes is the most popular radio station for a reason, people miss the music... I miss it.

    Time to find that Beavis and Butthead t-shirt! :lol:
