    I started to get into music at age 15 (1995). Here in no particular order are my favorite albums of the 90's (that I remember listening to in the 90's):

    Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
    Weezer - Blue Album
    Weezer - Pinkerton
    Green Day - Dookie
    Adam Sandler - What the Hell Happened to Me
    Johhny Cash - American Recordings
    Sublime - Sublime
    Metallica - Metallica
    Rancid - ....And Out Come the Wolves
    Foo Fighters - The Colour and The Shape

    My taste for some of these albums/bands have changed, but all in all I think most of these hold up for me. I was definitely impacted by the music that was available to me and I did have a decent alternative station near me growing up. My tastes expanded a lot more in college (yay Napster!) and living in a city with a really good alternative rock station.

    I also listened to a lot of radio classic rock in the 90's. My tastes now are alternative rock and 70's glam rock.

    Going back to the list, some random thoughts:
    - It's a damn shame that Weezer never made an album after Pinkerton. I think they could have gone places
    - I love Dookie and I think it's my favorite Green Day album (I don't mind their later stuff too much)
    - As I've become less angsty in life, my love of the Smashing Pumpkins has waned, but there are still individual songs I love

    Weezers red album is pretty good honestly and I recall liking a fair amount of the green one

    Nope. There were two albums. They may have released singles here or there, but otherwise they never really made music again. Damn shame.

    Okay, that's it, I'm making a playlist now

    Yes pls! I still have the last playlist we all made! https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4v6H3lnFVSzCbzdmRY53mr?si=4pvuNnq7SeGw4nT8FAuRdA

    Join me in my garbage rock! https://open.spotify.com/playlist/5WzjpdPPXhnjTGmk16fhY2?si=gyn1eWjlQ5WVxNav5e6fAw

    How is that a garbage playlist for the nineties. There's nothing on there from Garbage or Version 2.0!

    Anyway. This thread reminded me I was listening to a lot of Guano Apes for a while back then.


    Oh, and Die Ärzte


    And die Totem Hosen

    I was vaguely aware of those!

    Fuck off and die.

    My uncle gave me the Album The Bestie in Menschengestalt as a birthday present when I was 10 or 11 I think. I don't think my parents ever looked inside the cover. It was probably not age appropriate.

    the point I realized Weezer sucked was when they released Beverly Hills

    I still like the blue album, and pinkerton to some degree (it's got some good tunes but I think the critical reappraisal it underwent ten years ago ignored Rivers Cuomo's weird obsession with asian girls), but I'll never intentionally listen to anything after that

    Pinkerton certainly walks the sensitive guy/incel tightrope. I have a lot of sentimental attachment to it, but it doesn't really land on the right side of that dichotomy.
