    I know the 90s are long gone and over but for some reason, I just can't get over how awesome 90s rock music was (in my opinion). I've noticed that a lot of my favorite bands happen to come from the 90s. Garbage (my number 1 fave), Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, The Offspring, Elysian Fields, Hole, Faith and the Muse, Bush, and many others.

    I guess it's a strange topic but I just wanted to know if any of you still have a likeness or fondness for 90s music? Or heck, maybe even another decade of music that has ended?

    A lot of great music came from the '90s. I'd say that the last few years has also produced some great music. The early 2000s were not so great.

    Gotta love the Cranberries. "Zombie" is timeless. But also "Just my imagination" and "Liar" haha.

    Oh I wasn't trying to imply good music isn't being made still, I've come across a few modern bands that I think are great. I just realized that my music taste is 80% 90s on my ipod lol.

    I am a huge 90s fan. Such a great time for music and art in general. I love that you mentioned Alice in Chains...one of the most underrated group of musicians ever. Nobody can lay down harmonies like Jerry Cantrell and Layne Staley.

    Radiohead
    Pulp
    Ani DeFranco
    Sublime
    Jane's Addiction
    Blind Melon
    I could go on and on...

    it was great up until 1995, the emergence of hootie and the blowfish and live real signaled the death of grunge and the onslaught of pop/emo crap which led the way to nsync, Britney spears and all that other crap which is still around today in one form or another.

    I have been listening to these lately too...especially Nirvana, and Hole. What a great time in music. I loved the 90's!!...for some reason the 90's reminds me of Eric Nies too.

    Tripped me out to hear STP on the classic rock station, but then again the 90's are as far back from now as the 70's were from the 90's. Still can't wrap my brain around that ish.

    I couldn't agree more with Guy. The other day I heard Janes Addiction on a classic rock station. I almost shit myself.

    Lots of great music from the 90's as everyone has listed....It was a VERY DARK and HARD point in my life and the song reflected it.........I had a favorite in Soundgarden - Like Suicide....builds slowly and then rips into a guitar lead that touches my pain and anger

    Whoa, this is just too wicked cool. I had not idea others out there still like 90s rock. I guess it's because most of the people I hang around are more into the newer modern stuff (which isn't bad) but I felt alone and somewhat embarrased for liking a decade of music that is pretty much nonexistent now. So this is quite a pleasant surprise. icon_smile.gif

    Here are some of my picks from the 90s haha





















    I have so many because well, like I said, one of my all time fave genres. It's so bad that even now, I'm on the look out for more 90s rock bands I never heard of haha. The latest new one I discovered was Whale.

    i actually liked a lot of the late 90s music too (1997-1999). But I can understand what you mean.

    And yes, gotta give extra love to STP, Cranberries, AIC, bush, and Live.

    I know what you mean. I once heard Nirvana, Garbage, and The Smashing Pumpkins played on a classic rock station as well.

    I love Garbage too. In fact, my friend texted me last night and told me about an extra ticket she had for a Garbage concert this weekend.

    Hmm, out of those bands, I've only heard of Elastica, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Elliot Smith, PJ Harvey, Sensor, Beck, Flaming Lips, and Primal Scream. Looks like I have some new bands to check out lol.

    I actually liked a few Britpop bands. Like Blur for example, I liked them a lot.
