    Veruca Salt had other songs than ones about her hair trigger temper

    Veruca Salt was, in fact, very good.

    their best song is Number One Blind because all the lines in the chorus begin with the word Levolor

    Levolor was (and probably still is) the largest manufacturer of blinds and pull shades in the country

    I Love You Always Forever is notable because whatever year it came out, it spent a long long time at number one on American Top 40 or Rick Dees or whatever. It's a decent enough song but it's never remembered considering it was a big hit.

    I Love You Always Forever came out around the same time as Mario RPG and I mainlined both of them to the point that they are inseparable in my mind.

    I love you always forever I remember because when it was being played a lot the comment of someone saying the hook in this song is why I forget math

    Is it really a cover if the bass player who wrote the song had played in a new band?

    There is no Evan Dando with my Juliana

    My favorite albums of the '90s that I can remember in this span of free time at work are

    - Kyuss: Welcome to Sky Valley
    - REM: Automatic for the People
    - Flaming Lips: Clouds Taste Metallic
    - Fu Manchu: California Crossing
    - Barenaked Ladies: Rock Spectacle
    - GZA: Liquid Swords
    - Smash Mouth: Fush Yu Mang

    I should note that I listened to most of these albums as a whole for the first time between 2005 and 2013 because I was born in 1993

    But if I had to pick the one I was the biggest fan of actually in the '90s, it was early Smash Mouth and I regret nothing

    Favorite 90s Albums

    Cracker - The Golden Age
    Rancid - ... and Out Come The Wolves
    The Black Crowes - The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion
    Pearl Jam - Vs
    Weezer - Blue Album
    REM - Monster
    Counting Crows - Recovering the Satellites
    Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
    Fountains of Wayne - Fountains of Wayne

    these were my favorite albums during the 90s

    looking back I'd change them around a bit (and add several more)

    Cool I'll do this too

    - KoRn Follow the Leader
    - Alanis Morissette Jagged Little Pill
    - No Doubt Tragic Kingdom
    - Blink-182 Enema of the State
    - Rob Zombie Dragula
    - Limp Bizkit Significant Other
    - Offspring Americana (Ixnay is better but I was in junior high school OK??)
    - Portishead Dummy
    - Chumbawamba Tubthumper (FUN FACT: Still slaps!)
    - Weird Al Yankovich Alapalooza (DOUBLE FUN FACT: I didn't hear Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody until way later and was stoked that someone did a dead serious cover of a Weird Al song)
    - Red Hot Chilli Peppers Californication

    I had a lot more favourite 90's albums after the fact too once I graduated high school and became unbearably pretentious but they do not count.

    Were none of us cool enough in the 90s to listen to Monster Magnet? I only got into them at all because they had a banger on The Matrix soundtrack, but that was only in the 90s by like 4 months so I'm not sure I'd count my discovery of Monster Magnet truly 90s.

    Pretty Hate Machine was 1989 :rotate:

    I listened to it in the 90s too though.

    Maybe swap PHM for Ministry - Psalm 69 or KMFDM - Nihil then for industrial shit that I loved.

    I listened to a lot of Pork Soda, accidentally, as a young teen.

  • something a million times dumbersomething a million times dumber JUDGE BROSEF Registered User regular
    I never really listened to Primus until I got to high school and the bass nerds I had Geometry with wouldn't stop talking about Les Claypool

    I still like 'em a lot but they aren't as interesting to me anymore

    I do think that Claypool's songwriting is extremely funny, especially once you notice that probably half his songs are just about a guy with a job

    The first, like, five or six times I heard Coattails of a Dead Man I thought it was the worst song ever.

    And then I learned it was an homage to dunking on Courtney Love and it became my favorite Primus song.

    Really when it comes to albums from the 90's I don't think I can do a top 10 as in the early 90's my musical taste vastly opened up

  • astrobstrdastrobstrd So full of mercy... Registered User regular
    I found 90's college music in the 2000's. That would be a different list.

    Half of the 90s for me was spent listening to movie soundtracks honestly, until my dad brought home a CD zip case that fell out of someones truck, and without thumbing through it just gave it to my brother and I. Inside were all the things you shouldn't hand to a 7 year old starting with Marilyn Manson, Fugees and Coolios Gangsters Paradise. I think there was also a bunch of Chris Shepherds Pirate Radio albums in there as well, but let me tell you that on that day something awoke in me.

    I have been to exactly one strip club in my whole life, and one of the ladies did a set to the Live song...

    Lightning Crashes.

    IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT SONG IS ABOUT, do yourself a favor and give it a quick listen or read the lyrics. My consternation will be very understood.
