    They were a punk band in an era that was not even punk but categorized as grunge/alternative. That is how bad that era was.

    Incubus is actually a good example, especially since they started as a nu-metal band. Early 90's was awesome and Green Day eats dick.

    From the 90s, Live, Oasis, Crash Test Dummies, Suede, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nirvana were the emerging bands I liked.

    Did you see my thread on going to see crash test dummies? They were great. Was 15 feet away from the stage, and talked with the band for a little bit. They sounded great, but Ellen was weird in her back-ups, like she was off key and loud in purpose; for her solo stuff she sounded great. Brad Roberts sounded as good as ever. They are going all throughout the east, so try to check them out. They are playing pretty much all if 'and god shuffled his feet.'

    Incubus got caught by "successful ballad syndrome"............the same thing that brought down Foreigner, Chicago, Doobie Brothers, and a bunch of other bands throughout history.

    Science was one of the best albums of the 1990s and no amount of sappy ballads can erase that.

    2000's really sucked. I can't think of a single good band. Maybe Coldplay? They are decent but overrated.

    Oh wait MGMT. I'll go with MGMT.

    Also, out of all the awesome bands from the 90's you pick GREEN DAY?!!? LMAO!!!

    My least favorite time in music was between 1980 and 1984, and the best band in that era would have to be Swans.

    I would have to say Pink Floyd. 1982 gave us The Wall. The metal scrub in me has to disagree as well. Ozzy, Metallica, Iron Maiden, and Motley Crue were tearing it up at that point too.

    I'd absolutely love to see them live. However, I live in Hong Kong these days, so there's no chance. No real concert scene here, other than a few international acts a year, and the insipid cantopop and K-pop.

    Floyd was around well before that, but still a solid post.

    I think they got away from the dj influence.. He was a big part of the sound. Then they thought they became too "artistic" to do anything hard sounding.. Which was stupid and wrong. If they just weren't feeling like doing anything hard anymore, they could have explored some more trippy/expiramental stuff, but they just went bland. Totally bland. They were really talented at really young ages, as well. I have their pre-science demo type stuff, and THAT is better than what they are now lol
