Tough choice, but who do you got?
As a teenager in the 90s pearl jam if i have to choose one. It was most played with girls and make out sessions.
Behind closed doors i jammed to pantera
no foo fighters? not my pick but should be there (instead of oasis?).
In the 90s I would have said Pavement.
Tough call but I got to go with Nirvana.
They may not necessarily be the best band on that list, but If we're talking about the 90s....
they basically shaped 90s music and killed off hair metal and new wave. Their music embodies the 90s most imo.
Nirvana was considered the best by most but I liked Rage the most.
I wish I discovered Versus earlier. kinda ashamed considering they're from fucking NY too.
not the best, but thought I'd share.
Sort of dumb to talk about "best bands" of a certain decade and include bands whose first releases were not in that decade. (For example, U2 debuted in 1980, FFS.)
Might as well include Van Halen. Or Ozzy. lol
I'll vote for Radiohead from your list. But my '90's list would include Jeff Buckley, Failure and STP.
have to go with AiC from the list but Foo Fighters should be on there too, albeit I only really like their first album.
but I do have a soft spot in my heart for Pearl Jam. I can sing 'Black' perfectly too. I learned too late the ladies love this haha
Too hard to choose from that list. A lot of good music came out of the 90's.
One band I didn't see mentioned:
I put U2 in there because they released probably their best album Achtung Baby in the 90's. Same with Metallica, they released a few good albums in the 90's as well.
IMO they never even came close to surpassing the best of their 1980's output. I was once a HUGE fan of that band. (Though I admit AB was a very strong release. I actually liked it far more than Joshua Tree - but I hated where U2 took its sound on that JT record.)
Again, I would say the opposite. They certainly enjoyed much bigger commercial success in the '90's but their best and classic work was all done in the 1980's, IMO.
I have always had a theory that it is very, very rare to see a band with longevity surpass the best of what they achieved within the span of their first four records.
Weak musical era. No where near as bad as today but it pales in comparison to the 60's, 70's and 80's.
Even the good bands on that list were mediocre. I vote no vote.
You put the best as the first choice, good job.
I agree with you in that both bands had put out more albums in the 80's that were good to great. Maybe you're right I should have added two different bands to the poll instead of U2 and Metallica.
A list of the greatest bands of the 90's, and no mention of the Melvin's?
I voted for AIC but didn't notice Metallica. The 90's version is inferior but still good.
Not sure they should be on the poll. Might aswell put Ozzy on there too.
Shit forgot about Tool. I like Jerry Cantrell's riffs so that would probably edge out Tool alone but the latter has some very epic songs, very original Band. Coincidentally I never listened to them in the 90's. Was too into exploring metal bands.
Wait...Pantera now that I think about it. I know Cowboys weren't their first album but I usually consider it to be. I vote other and Pantera.
