    I'M NOT SICK BUT I'M NOT WELL



    Also, I was looking at flamebroiledchicken's list and it fails for no

    Oasis
    Beastie Boys

    seriously what the fuck is wrong with you

    Wonderwall is definitely on there, and Licensed to Ill and Paul's Boutique are both 80s albums, and everything the Beasties did after that is completely irrelevant.

    So I made my '90's playlist.

    The big winners were Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins at 21 songs apiece. Pearl Jam came in a close second with 19 songs (considering that each of these bands had 5 albums* in the '90's, not too excessive). Honorable mention to Weezer and The Offspring at 10 and 11 songs apiece. I'm going to go put on some flannel now.

    * - Smashing Pumpkins had 5 if you count Mellon Collie as two (which I do...and it had double the tracks of any other on my playlist). Nirvana really only had 4 in the 90's (if you count Unplugged...and I do, due to the number of excellent covers on it)...but I also counted Bleach because it came out in mid-1989 and I'll be damned if I don't get some of those tracks in there. Pearl Jam...actually had 5 studio albums in the 90's.

    EDIT: My playlist is, however, woefully incomplete. There are several tracks that I will most definitely need to procure. For instance, there exists in my iTunes no REM from the '90s (it's all '80s stuff). I had only two Oasis songs. I had only two Red Hot Chili Peppers songs...blasphemy! At least RHCP is kicking around my house somewhere (OHM and BSSM)...I musta just never gotten to ripping them.

    PS aussie options: powderfinger, the living end, silverchair, jebediah.

    Spiderbait, OMC, Happyland, Regurgitator, You Am I, The Mavis's.

    Note how all these bands suck now.

    Also, your list needs more Soundgarden, Pulp, The Verve, Blur, the Wallflowers, Filter (Probably Take A Picture) and Temple of the Dog.

    Always more Soundgarden.

    My 90's were:
    Toad the Wet Sprocket
    Gin Blossoms
    Radiohead
    Pearl Jam
    Alice in Chains
    Stone Temple Pilots
    REM -- though it was their 80's shit that did me in.
    Counting Crows


    Although I only listen to a few of these bands still...it was all a foundation of what was to come for me; leading upwards to a more refined musical taste I guess I should say.

    Did we ever listen to some terrible music back in the 90's.

    And by God, we enjoyed it.

    That said, I can't believe that only one of you bunch of savages has mentioned Alice in Chains yet.

    And anyone who thinks that Third Eye Blind was even a remotely decent band should be stabbed in the face.

    That being said, how about Fastball? Or Big Wreck? Note that only one of those bands was any good.

    And if you're going to go with the Canadian pick of The Tragically Hip, go with Locked in the Trunk of a Car. Easily their best song and waaaaay better than the crap they're recording now.

    Fuck you.

    Not to get dragged into a debate over the quality of their music, but if their singles were anything to judge by, I don't have to listen to anything else to know that they were overplayed and overrated.

    I mean, aren't singles meant to be the hook to draw potential listeners to the rest of the album?

    Then again, I probably have slightly different musical taste than a lot of people here. I was more into Skinny Puppy, Ministry, NIN, Pig, and any other weird shit I could find more than anything else. Drove all but one of my friends nuts as I did a great deal of the driving. And driving=choosing the music 'round these parts.

    On that note, the Beavis and Butthead do America soundtrack, Godzilla soundtrack, Batman and Robin soundtrack. Surprisingly the last two are good and totally 90's.

    Wonderwall is definitely on there, and Licensed to Ill and Paul's Boutique are both 80s albums, and everything the Beasties did after that is completely irrelevant.

    Man, Oasis has so many more better songs than Wonderwall. Explore their albums a bit - they are all solid, especially the ones from the 90s. But please, please don't automatically pick Wonderwall because it's the only song you know by them. If you know all their stuff and still pick it, fine.

    As for the Beastie Boys, I'm pretty sure an argument for at least including Intergalactic could be made.

    And seriously, did nothing come of my mention of Massive Attack earlier?

    Oh I know, I'm not a big fan of Wonderwall myself. But my list was really just a list of "hits" from the 90s- stuff that made up the mass cultural landscape.

    Probably the guitarist Gallagher (Noel) - the one who can actually sing and basically wrote all of the songs. If he'd been a solo artist I'd most likely rate him a lot higher.
