    And let us not forget some Busta Rhymes. The 90s was kind to that man.

    Also a band called the deftones released an album called adrenaline, and followed it up with an album called Around the Fur. If you don't own both of these albums, well then I guess I just don't have anything nice to say about you.


    Man, you're kind of a dick, arent you? I mean, those are both good albums and I like them alot, but i thought being an arrogant douche bag about bands had kind of fallen out of fashion. Yeah people still do it sometimes with really obscure bands, which is prickish but people still do it. But Deftones is pretty mainstream. This really isnt that constructive of a post, but I figured alot people were probably thinking this after reading your post and it should be said.

    BTW, Eve 6 and Third Eye Blind were in no way great musicians of their time, but listening to them makes me happy as a pig in shit, not sure why, but they filled a purpose.

    I think its the most solid release they ever put out, in terms of consistent quality and such.

    I recently discovered Planet Bee after tracking down a snowboard VHS I saw once in... '94(?), wich had these quirky catchy proto-emo songs as soundtrack.
    "Is this your bikini" and "Cash is king" was as fucking awesome as I remembered them. <3!

    The late 90s were amazing for electronica.

    Crystal Method - Vegas
    Orbital - In Sides and Middle of Nowhere
    Underworld - Born Slippy, Second Toughest of the Infants, Beaucoup Fish
    Hybrid - Wide Angle
    UNKLE - Psyence Fiction
    DJ Shadow - Endtroducing...
    Roni Size - New Forms
    Portishead - Portishead
    Hooverphonic - Stereophonic Sound Spectacular

    I could keep going.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    I can't wait to hear Opeth covering 'Would?' on their new album.

    My jaw dropped when I first heard they were doing that. It probably won't be nearly as good as I'm hoping it will be.

    Fix'd. Out of all the 90's alt/grunge stuff I listen to AiC takes the cake as my favorite 90's band, being able to see them with the new singer this past summer solidified that notion as they still rock. Hard. I'm looking forward to the album they're recording with the new guy (who does Layne justice). Also Jar of Flies was a great EP following the classic Dirt.

    Some other noteworthy 90's bands/albums of mine are:

    -Jane's Addicton's Ritual De Lo Habitual; one of the pioneering alt-rock albums (along with its 80's predecessor Nothing's Shocking).

    -Stone Temple Pilot's Core and Purple; regardless of how they were called rip-offs or whatever frankly pretentious criticisms they recieved, both albums produced some of the biggest 90's rock numbers. Sadly all their following albums were lacking in the energy the first two had. The upcoming summer reunion of theirs should be interesting.

    There seems to be a surprising lack of support for Black on Both Sides and Black Star. Both excellent hip-hop albums.

    Also, as overrated as he may be, my high school years were very much influenced by Nine Inch Nails' Broken and The Downward Spiral.

    OH MY GOD. BLACK STAR. I completely forgot to mention Mos Def. All of the "alternative" rap artists were really thriving at the time. Funny thing, I was looking for Black Star today at my library...it was kind of awkward to spell and pronounce Talib Kweli to an aging librarian trying to help me.

    I cheated a bit. And they're all Rock-ish songs. I have yet to come up with a Pop playlist and an electronica playlist, but that's next time I have a free saturday afternoon with nothing to do.

    And I personally like In Utero best for Nirvana records. Kurt's songwriting was at its peak at that point, and Steve Albini's sound was fucking incredible. That album is goddamn timeless.

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned the hardcore or post-hardcore of the nineties, because it was pretty great. I mean, you had Fugazi, Quicksand, The Cro-Mags, Jawbox, Helmet, At The Drive In...

    You also had one of the only straight up metal bands that I find myself consistently amazed by, Sepultura.

    I was also very into I Mother Earth.

    Some bands of my youth that I now slap myself over: Limp Bizkit (luckily, I got off that train after their first album, but still, has there ever been a bigger douche in rock than Fred Durst? Maybe Scott Stapp?), Ugly Kid Joe, Marilyn Manson (who I probably, in retrospect, shouldn't have been allowed to go see at a small nightclub when I was 13).

    The nineties was also heavily influenced for me by GWAR. Phallus in Wonderland is pretty much the ultimate weapon for me when I am asked to demonstrate my love of bad taste.

    I had completely forgotten about Fugazi.

    Red Medicine was easily one of my favorite CDs to pop in back in high school.

    If I recall correctly, Muse's debut was a late 90's CD, I think it was Origin of Symmetry, but good lord did it show promise.

    Also, my current favorite band had their debut in the 90's, formed out of Kyuss' ashes Queens of the Stone Age really gave credence to their label of robot rock.

    There is just so much awesome to come out of the 90's, but I could be a little jaded.

    Chaos AD was pretty great (released in '93) but I've always been indifferent to Roots, and once Max departed the band I never paid much attention to them.

    While 3 dollar bill wasn't exactly a masterpiece, it was a good album if you happened to be in to that emerging genre and were looking for more of it. I pity anyone who bought Significant Other when they had actually maybe enjoyed songs on the first album besides 'Faith'. The list of musicians who deliberately mainstreamed/homogenized their sound more deliberately then those guys did is very short indeed.

    Marilyn Manson seems to be more of an musical attraction then a musician, like a modern day Alice Cooper just not as good.

    I'm trying (a little) to not sound like a wanker here, personal preference and all that, but Sepultura? Seriously? You are "consistently amazed by" the band that put out "Roots Bloody Roots"? Good for you, I suppose.

    Back over Christmas I dug up my old CD's and put a lot of stuff I hadn't heard in years on my computer - your typical stuff like REM, Smashing Pumpkins, BushX/Bush and Radiohead (I only had up to Kid A though).

    Good times, almost scary how that stuff sticks with you - was listening to The Bends just the other day for the first time since I had found it and I could have sworn I had heard most of it just last week. Kid A was even more enjoyable than I remembered (because I kind of lost interest in them after that album - I was what, 17 at the time?) - though some of it still makes you ask (to quote Dr. Wilson): "a profit-seeking entity released this?"

    Rob Zombie has had a pretty good run considering White Zombie, and a handful of good songs here and there as a solo act (on Hellbilly Deluxe in particular). That and he puts on a hell of a show live. That makes him a pretty cool guy in my books, even if I'm not all that into his movies (he makes the movies he wants, so I can forgive that too).
