    Siamese Dream is better.

    Pisces Iscariot is better than either.

    But less of a quitessential 90's album.

    What?

    Shut up.

    Anyhow, something by Fiona Apple should be on there. Probably Criminal.

    I myself couldn't have a 90s album without triplefastaction, Fig Dish, Superdrag, and Verbena. But, uhh, they weren't really big.

    Tromp Le Monde and Bossanova came out in the 90s; something off of one of those should be included because The Pixies are the band that kind of started the 90s, musically.

    Or, right, Popular by Nada Surf. Even though that song is kind of meh, the band as a whole is fantastric. And that was their one 90s hit.

    Foo Fighters were pretty awesome back in the day. Monkey Wrench or something.

    Uhh, Liz Phair, of course. Maybe some Juliana Hatfield as well.

    Grace came out in 94 I think, so Jeff Buckley has to be there.

    And of course I have to throw a vote for something Local H, my favorite band. Bound for the Floor is probably the one you know.

    Which, of course, is why it is not exactly fair to compare a double album to a single album. Siamese Dream would easily hold it's own against either disc of Mellon Collie.

    Also, Rocket and Mayonaise are good too.

    As for Foo Fighters, I'd go Big Me over Monkey Wrench. That, or probably This is a Call or I'll Stick Around over either one.

    And fuck yes on the Local H. They have plenty of other good stuff, but if I'm looking for nostalgia I'd probably stick with Bound for the Floor

    I maintain that Mellon Collie should've been a one-disc album. Basically, it was, but with a second disc worth of filler scattered around between good tracks.

    One of the greatest things about the rise of the MP3, in this listener's opinion, is the end of the self-indulgent "musical journey" albums. And watching Thom Yorke and a couple other holdouts bitch about it like old men shaking their fists at whippersnappers.

    Edit: Jesus, how did Walking After You by Foo Fighters not get on my list?

    Hopefully you're not doing only rock, because no 90s album is complete without "Regulate" by Warren G and Nate Dogg.

    Yeah, this whole thread seems designed specifically to make me feel old.

    Actually, many of the filler tracks are pretty good, and the entire two-disc set is worth having. It probably would have been better recieved, however, had it been released as one strong album, with all the "filler" used as B-sides and later compiled a la Pisces Iscariot.

    Then again, I imagine there must be a wealth of ultra-filler that went on the B-sides from Mellon Collie, considering all the stuff that would normally have been B-sides ended up on the album.

    "No Shelter," bitches.

    I've always wondered how a song that blasts Hollywood ends up on a soundtrack, particularly on the soundtrack for one of the movies it specifically mentions as being "pure motherfuckin' filler".

    Bone Thugz' "Crossroads" and Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise"

    Since Cat did Aussie options, I'll do some Canadian ones.

    The Tragically Hip. In Canada, the biggest band of the 1990s. And possibly of all time. Up to Here, their first big album came out in 1989, but thats close enough. And then there's six albums released in the 1990s, including one live album.

    You couldn't go wrong IMO with the following songs:
    Boots or Hearts, Little Bones, Courage, Grace Too and Ahead by a Century.

    Other 90s Canadian Stuff:
    (Artist, then Song)
    I Mother Earth: One More Astronaut
    Age of Electric:Ugly
    Moist: Push
    The Tea Party: Hmm. Maybe Temptation.
    Mathew Good Band: I personally love Middle Class Gangsters as a song, but not a big or well known song. Apparitions, Everything is Automatic, Hello Time Bomb would all be good picks.
    Sloan. Underwhelmed, The Good in Everyone.

    more seriously, I'd probably pick anything by the Pumpkins, imho they were the most important band of the 1990's by longevity and range of music. (for radiohead fans, I consider them more of 2000+ band, since their best/most influential stuff has come then).

    My 2 cents.
    Green Day beats pretty much every other 90's band around for influence and longevity.

    God that's a fucking amazing album.

    DMB constantly reinvents their sound, and they make it work almost every time. It's brilliant.

    Edit: Although I would say their best single in the 90s was So Much To Say. What a great song.

    I always felt that Lagwagon were more responsible for the pop-punk explosion. I definitely hold them accountable for Simple Plan, because their old band Reset have a pretty obvious Lagwagon influence.

    There is a BOX SET of outtakes and b-sides from Mellon Collie. There were just that many.

    Also, as has already been mentioned, yeah there are a lot of great songs on Mellon Collie, because it is a double album. But there is quite a bit of filler, and some of the shittiest shit the Pumpkins have ever recorded (Tales of a Scorched Earth), so it's not as altogether solid as Siamese Dream, which has only one mediocre song IMO (Luna).
