That was, in my opinion, the GOAT time period for music:
- Incubus
- Staind
- Vertical Horizon
- Linkin Park
- Puddle of Mudd
- Nirvana
- Red Hot Chili Peppers
- Lenny Kravitz
Etc.
Every time I just lay back and listen to any of the above I have an eargasm.

Post your favorite 90's bands and songs!

Are we soul mates? Among my favorite are Staind, Vertical Horizon, Linkin Park, Puddle of Mudd, and Nirvana.

In addition, Green Day, Blink-182, Avril Lavgine, Good Charlotte, The Offspring, Michelle Branch, New Found Glory, SR-71, Evanescence, Cold Play, Sum 41, and Simple Plan, among others.

Someone else isn't afraid to claim their liking of Avril Lavigne and Michelle Branch, this is the best. Of course Sum 41, Simple Plan, All American Rejects, other angsty bands were the best.

This made me realize how much I miss the early 2000s. God damnit.

Guns n roses

Mar 25, 2015

I love me some Nivarna, Linkin Park, Blink 182, Good Charlotte, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Oasis till this day.

Also a big fan of 90s and early 2000s hip hop - WuTang, Biggie, The Roots, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Rakim, Nas and a few others.

Mar 25, 2015

Summer Hits of the 90's on Pandora...Oh man

Mar 25, 2015

RATM is awesome ... I have twice gotten bands at the Borgata to cover RATM songs by buying shots for them

Tool, deftones, Nine Inch Nails - something a little more heavy for you. Love the prodigy and Rage throw backs though!

Temple of The Dog - Say Hello to Heaven

RHCP is one of my favorites of all time, but I like the 80's as a whole better

RHCP is one of my favorites of all time, but I like the 80's as a whole better

Idk why, but 80's music and fashion IN GENERAL seems Uber tacky to me, haha. Everything was so over-the-top, to the point of reaching tryhard status. The best thing about the 90's was that it was so chill, grunge was laid back, raw, and unpretentious. I also love how the rock during that time featured dissonant harmonious and distorted chords.

Two exceptions to my general distate for 80s music are Duran Duran and Tears for Fears. Love them even though they were both before my time.

Mar 25, 2015

311, Incubus, Rage, RHCP. Lots of hip-hop/rap, basically what I still listen to now
Also a few emo/punk type bands I never really got into but hearing their songs today brings me back.

Mar 25, 2015

Oh yeah, Eminem. His music took the late 1990s and early 2000s by absolute storm. Not a fan of rap in general, but who wasn't a fan of Eminem (even if secretly?). The guy is pure talent.

Sting would be another person who's a hero. The music he's created over the years, I don't really listen to it, but the fact that he's making it, I respect that.

Brand New Day gives me nostalgia :D

Sting is one of my all time favorite musicians, a five-star lyricist. Ten Summoner's Tales album changed my life.

As somebody with a taste for heavier music, I can't help but mention Pantera. It's a shame they broke up and Dimebag (their guitarist) was shot and killed on stage making a reunion impossible.

Mar 25, 2015

I'M BROKEN :))

I am feeling this thread so hard.

Sum 41, Sugar Ray, Blink 182, Angels and Airwaves, The Wallflowers, Spin Doctors, Third Eye Blind, Linkin Park, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Train, Five for Fighting, Bowling for Soup, old Kayne, Oasis, Uncle Kracker, Counting Crows, John Mayer, Relient K, Fort Minor, Chumbawumba, Moby, Outkast, Jimmy Eat World, Coldplay, Matchbox Twenty, Yellowcard, Lifehouse, and so many more

By far my favorite period for music. I'm so amped right now.

thanks for mentioning Hoobastank, now I know what i'm listening to for the rest of work.

How has everyone forgotten Nickelback!?

... just kidding.

@"DCDepository" solid list. definitely would add third eye blind, blues traveler, matchbox 20, among a few others

Hootie all day.

Metallica ? and yeah Motorhead

I can't believe 50 cent hasn't been mentioned. I still play Get Rich or Die Tryin

Mar 25, 2015

This. Get Rich or Die Tryin is probably the only rap album in recent memory that one could listen to without skipping any songs.

Mar 25, 2015

This may be pushing the "early 2000s" criteria a bit, but College Dropout?

Mar 25, 2015

He'd be one of the ones i'd include on my rap list. Too long to write it all out, but 50, Eminem, Nas, Jay Z, Biggie, 2pac, Wu Tang would be a few.

I was also into hard rock...Korn, Disturbed, System of a Down, Pantera.

Man, i miss all that music

I graduated high school in '93 so the grunge stuff really reminds me of those HS days: Nirvana, Sound Garden, STP, Alice in Chains, Mudhoney, Hole, L7 and so many more. We had teenage angst, we were showing our disgust towards the world, we weren't going to do the same thing as the previous generation(s) and no one understood Gen X. Now we're old and no one can pin down Millennials. It's all happened before gents...

Rap was also cool: early '90's 1st gen gangsta rap with NWA then Dre, Ice Cube, Snoop, Ice-T then going into Biggie, Tupac, Wu-Tang, Tribe, etc.

I haven't seen Jane's Addiction on this thread. Perry Farrell was the man in the early 90's when Lollapalooza was actually edgy and cool. Download Ritual-I don't think there's a bad song.

This. I would also add Too Short, Eazy-E, Bone Thugs n' Harmony, the Geto Boyz, and Warren G.

Also, how the fuck did nobody mention Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, or Stone Temple Pilot yet? Siamese Dream is possibly the greatest album ever.

I missed Pearl Jam and the Pumpkins somehow, though STP I got.

And I was trying to figure out Warren G but could not remember his name for the life of me.

I find this thread interesting though. When I was young in the 80's, the late 50's/early 60's were cool (think about the return of doowop and movies like Grease). When I was a teen in the early 90's, the late 60's/early 70's were cool-I listened to more Doors, Hendrix, Zeppelin, etc than most then modern stuff. When I was a young adult in the late 90's/early 00's, the 70's disco and early 80's were cool. I've thought this for a while but there seems to be a +/-5 on ~20 where older teens to 30 year olds like the music of those time periods. It's not a critique because I did it and I think it's good because it keeps music from those times alive but I think it's interesting.

Fellow '93 high school graduate here.

Jane's Addiction, Ministry, some middle class white kid Dead Kennedys & Ramones, Big Black.

I discovered chemicals and chemical beats at the end of the '90s.

Jane's Three Days thrown on a cd loop with a hit of acid could take up a good 12 hours. As a matter of fact, it did for me, a few times...

I wanted to throw some punk in but I feel like that was a 70's/80's thing that degenerate white middle class kids like us were fans of. I was a Dead Milkmen fan myself.

Wish I had enough posts to post youtube vids :/

P.S. For those of you who mentioned Avril Lavigne, I concur... Her cover of Nickelback's "Remind Me" is actually really good :) "I'm with You" and "Losing Grip" are favorites as well! Too bad her new stuff is total crap

Mar 25, 2015

3rd Eye Blind. Too many songs to list

Mar 29, 2015
Mar 30, 2015

Tool, Slipknot, Disturbed, Rammstein, Korn, Drowning Pool and I really liked the Mission Impossible 2 soundtrack. Limp Bizkit is shit... but even they had a couple of good albums at the time. Pretty much all the bands listed by OP as well.

I suspect piracy has killed any chance for quality bands to succeed, which is why we're not seeing the same quality any more.

Mar 30, 2015

Phish all day every day. 90's, 2000 &, present (and this is coming from a former Linkin Park, Blink-182, etc. fan).

Young blood here, but I concede the 90s was just a better decade.

Soundgarden
the Cranberries
Bare Naked Ladies
Wu-Tang Clan

the only music I remember listening to was the Starcraft sound during the gameplay

Mar 31, 2015

I like this better

Mar 31, 2015

Smashing Pumpkins are the GOAT. Foo Fighters, Third Eye Blind, Marcy Playground, Oasis, Blink 182, Queens of the Stone Age, Green Day, Weezer.

Basically anything that was on Q101 Chicago.

I think Pearl Jam is easily the best rock band since 1990

Mar 31, 2015

when I saw linkin park in the header, I nearly cringed, but this thread recovered nicely.

for me, it's like this:

3eb, hootie, 311, incubus, rhcp all classics. but I got really into punk rock in the mid/late 90s. pretty much loved every fat wreck & epitaph artist, particularly nofx, lagwagon, bad religion, pennywise, rbf, rancid, strung out, swingin utters, etc etc etc. also couldn't help but like the pop punk stuff like blink, green day, nfg.

early 2000s I really started getting into metal, gothenburg style as well as classic thrash (metallica & megadeth) and of course nwobhm stuff, mostly maiden.

beyond that, of course rap, loved the game, dre, snoop, pac, biggie, etc.

after writing this out, I realized my musical tastes directly coincided with what was on skate videos I was watching at the time. I was big into skateboarding up until high school, so I pretty much got all of my tastes from that, funny how that works.

Mar 31, 2015

Ahhh I love this Thread! Anybody remember that Canadian channel Munch Music/Fuse? The 1st time I heard Franz Ferdinand, Taking Back Sunday, Muse, etc. Such good times for early 2000's Emo/Screamo/Alternative Warp Tour high school stuff. I'll add Grateful Dead and Widespread Panic to the list....

Greed is Good!

Mar 31, 2015

How bout some good shit? From First to Last and Saosin.

Apr 1, 2015

Ah how could I forget Fatboy Slim?

Apr 1, 2015

How did this thread get so far without mentioning Refused, AFI, Bad Religion, NOFX, Fu Manchu, Papa Roach or Millencolin? The soundtrack to Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 was pretty much my life in the '90s.
