One of my favorite bands were really hitting their stride by the early-90':

White Zombie

Probably the most non-dated music of 1992. Its just as unique now as it was back then.

Metallica were still tearing s**t up back in the day, too. Too bad they hit that slump in '96 with "Load" and "Re-Load".

White Zombie were EXCELLENT! I saw them at Wings Stadium,with openers the Reverand Horton Heat and the mighty Melvins back in the early days of thrash 90's...when metal really mattered.

I thought the 90s were pretty lousy for entertainment in general: TV, movies, music, even books to a smaller extent.

When Nirvana came along and the music industry started pumping out clones like no tomorrow, (and the "boy bands" later on, shudder) I just gave up on music until ... hmm.  It's only in the last couple of years I've bothered listening to any newer acts.

(Nope, I didn't like Nirvana.  They had one song that I thought was decent, I think.  Korn was even worse, maybe my #1 Worst Big-Time Band of All Time.  Seems like all I heard during the 90s were bands trying desperately to be Nirvana or Korn.  Maybe it was just me.)

There were a few shining spots.  I remember I did like what I heard of White Zombie but I haven't heard them in years, at least nothing I could identify as being theirs.  And the Spice Girls were a diamond in the rough.  Yep, I liked the Spice Girls.  I had all of their albums, until my ex-fiancee decided to keep them when we broke up.

The 90s where rough when it came to alot of different genres of music. Punk became big and every band was playing pop-punk which was rough times. rap-metal was a big thing and bastardized Hardcore like Limp Biscut.

Personal I loved Nirvana and have a patch on my vest to provie it. Thier first album Bleach is great stuff and their other are solid if anything.

 I enjoyed (and still do) Anthrax alot,(after they dumped Joey Belladonna). GWAR were fun! I think the late 80's/early ninties music scene was fairly important...or at least useful,for elbowing out tired hair bands,though the overflow of Metallica (who I never really liked after Master of Puppets) wanna be's and Punk posers kinda smothered the actual GOOD music (Kyuss,Tool,I Mother Earth),IMHO.

NEVER!  Hair Metal was the greatest musical movement of all time!  I never quite got over its passing.

Naked by the Goo Goo Dolls was pretty decent. I give them credit for lasting as long as they have, even if they just ride the waves of genres and are harmless in all of them. One of the few radio-friendly groups I can listen to on a regular basis without wanting to beat up the DJ.

I was a fan of critic's darling Chris Whitley, who was on the way up in the early 90s, poor guy died a couple of yeras ago. Deserved to be a bigger name than he was. I even got a few people into his music and made fans out of them. His first album is an underrated classic, check it out.

For me the early '90s was the beginning of the end for music.  I vaguely remember the bands you mentioned and thought they were listenable but not my thing.  Our local hard rock station started playing alternative stuff, and I'd always listen to it while driving to work.  After about a month or so I realized the stuff was making me depressed.    I just never embraced the rock stuff of the '90s, it wasn't for me.  My friends would talk about those bands and I wouldn't have a clue what they were going on about.

I remember all throughout the '80s I'd get my issue of Guitar For The Practicing Musician each month, anxiously dig into the songs they transcribed, it was the highlight of my month.  Then the '90s came and I dropped my subscription.  After 8 years.  They sent me a card asking me why and I said "No good music any more".

I haven't owned a radio since 1996.  I didn't like where "alternative" music was heading.  It was a great ride up until that point though.  You know, just the other day I calculated that I have about 8.4 hours of Butthole Surfers music!  Drink  I miss the playful experimentation and noise (and the fact record companies couldn't mass produce that style, at least right away).  Favorites in my collection include Meat Puppets, Jesus Lizard, Ministry, L7...  Ah, memories!  Even the rap music back then was great:  remember good Cypress Hill and Gravediggaz?  Haha.

I saw Suicidal Tendencies/the Melvins/White Zombie at Wings stadium...

I used to see the Melvins several times a year when I lived in Chicago, usually touring with whatever happened to be Mike Patton's current project (Mr. Bungle, Fantomas, Tomahawk, etc).  Then I moved to sunny-cheery northern California and good music all but vanished.  GWAR never set foot in that state.  It was sad, sad times.  But I saved quite a bit of money without decent shows to go to (and nobody to see them with).

The 90s were a cornucopia of bad music and none of you did listen to it?

I only read here about Metal and alternative music. What about the huge mass of Eurodance, the rise of the boy-bands or everything else. I dare you to out yourselves you fans of Ace of Base and Roxette, those who danced to 2 Unlimited and Haddaway. Did nobody own anything by the New Kids on the Block? And never ever forget MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice. Hammer was a god to me untill somebody pointed me to Rick James. Nonetheless sometimes i still feel like it is ...

actually few metal bands have been mentioned.  I loved both the grunge and metal scence at the time.  Pantera was getting big then, Megadeth put out their best album with Rust in Peace.  Guns'n Roses was still touring.  As for Grunge music, I'm one of those who thinks bands like Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains aren't Nirvana Clones.

Early 90's I was living in Chapel Hill, NC (89-93) and was mostly into older metal like Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, etc as far as music I owned goes.  I listened to campus radio (WXYC) at work a lot (especially when I worked nights when no one else was around - when they were, it was mostly NPR) which played everything from 40's jazz/swing to folks banging on a pipe for five minutes and a lot what I would call alternative stuff.  The most requested song on XYC, almost to the point of being a cliche, was "Bela Lugosi's Dead."

I was really into the local band scene in Chapel Hill, though, and spent a fair amount of time at a club called Cat's Cradle and few others.  Local bands I saw some of you may have heard of include Nikki Meets the Hibachi, Orange Driver, Flat Duo Jets, What Peggy Wants (aka Teasing the Korean) and Southern Culture on the Skids.

Flat Duo Jets later appeared on David Letterman.  The night I saw them at the Cradle, it was Dexter Romweber's birthday, and they decided to play all night long, despite the local law that bars had to close at 2 am.  Man, what a great show, until an amp or something blew at about 5 am.

I saw the "Fairwell Final Show" for Nikki Meets the Hibachi.  The last song they played was a totally improv of "Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison (one of my most favorite all time songs) with a bunch of friends on the stage with them (they were not a cover band, this was just a special goodbye song for them).  It was incredibly moving.  What a great band they were, too, and also nationally known at the time.

Saw SCOTS a BUNCH of times, at the Cradle and another place called La Terazza (sp??).  They put on a very fun show.

Orange Driver was a very hard, almost speed metal band and a number of the band members worked at the best pizza shop in town.

I also saw What Peggy Wants in that guise as well as the Teasing The Korean guise numerous times, also in 'special' extended shows.

Some other local bands of note:

Mike Edwards and the Banned: a classic rock cover band that were incredible.  I saw them many times, but two notable ones were the first time they played "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd and it sounded like almost like a recording from start to finish and the time the bass player let me play his Rickenbacker bass some after the show and I got some girls interested with my INCREDIBLE (haha) bass riffs on that awesome sounding guitar.

Chris and the Cornflakes (aka Brainiac Fingers): Now this band was very interesting, and I saw them a number of times, also.  They were a group of guys that get together occasionally to play shows and they just go at it.  It's all improv, basically, they don't even rehearse together.  At the time, they were doing such shows, a few a year, all over the eastern US, but mostly near the NC beaches.  The bass player would start playing a bass line from a 'familiar' rock song, and everyone else would just fill right in.  I recall at one time they were playing at least three distinctly different songs simultaneously and it was GREAT - it fit seamlessly.

I knew bands like Nirvana and Alice in Chains.  i listened to a little Metallica, too, and Megadeth (saw them in Raleigh at an Oz-Fest).  But give me local music in a place like Chapel Hill any time.   Smile Smile
