Oh, the 90′s. So many great albums and hit singles were produced in the 90′s and thinking about them just makes me realize how horrible a lot of the radio tunes are these days. Because I love 90′s music (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?), I thought I’d compile a list of pop-rock and alternative music from the 90′s that was absolutely awesome.
I will point out that I’m not going to list every band you listened to in the 90′s that was good. I’m even going to make some notable exceptions by leaving out Nirvana and Pearl Jam. Yes, yes, I know there were a lot of great grunge and post-grunge bands from the 90′s, and I also know there were some bands that were so good that their sound defied all genres and they must now be worshiped as music gods. But that’s NOT what I’m talking about here. What I really miss is the carefree alternative and pop-rock bands that played the type of songs that just made you want to bob your head and sing along. Even so, I went ahead and threw in a couple of other old favorites as well.
And now, without further ado, I present a small fortune of the excellent sing-along, bob-your-head, jam-your-air-drums, play-your-air-guitar hits from the 90′s!
