A couple songs that are just so 90's rock it hurts
We only met once or twice but I thought you looked like Steve-O, and your description just reinforces it
They put out an album this year, it's bad. Start up the track "Let The Bad Times Roll" and see how long you can last before skipping
Might not be a popular opinion, but STP’s best album IMO:
I saw STP in like 08/09 and Weiland looked awful then but still sounded great.
I can't imagine their thing working that well once they're into their 50s and 60s. Unfortunately every band eventually gets to where they just aren't as good anymore.
He looked bad for like a decade + before he died. Unfortunately his death seemed inevitable.
This whole album (Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone?) was an outstanding. My personal fav:
Also, this is the best unplugged of all time, please direct any dissenting opinions to HotMic 's inbox
Alice in Chains is one of my favorite bands, period. Incredible songs and good songs deep into albums
Explain to me how it's better than Nirvana
I will when you learn to follow instructions
Speaking of unplugged this is the best version of She Talks to Angels no interviews decision is final
I could listen to the unplugged version of Heaven Beside You every day of my life. So good.
Also I don't think it's a hot take to say Alice in Chains > Nirvana.
I don't have a problem with Nirvana but much prefer AIC
HotMic check PMs
It's not an argument about which band is better, but which band's MTV Unplugged album was better
Nirvana is not my favorite but I appreciate their impact and Kurt's song writing ability and definitely how good of a drummer Grohl is
My Seattle grunge hierarchy is PJ/Nirvana 1a/1b, then AIC, then Soundgarden
I can listen to AIC's Unplugged start to finish and not skip a single track.
The only Nirvana Unplugged track I listen to with any sort of regularity is "The Man Who Sold The World"
Attention Corch , an anonymous poster had the following to say:
“AIC Unplugged is good, but it's a pretty straight reading of their material. "Sludge Factory" is a standout, but a lot of those songs were half acoustic to begin with so it's not as dramatic of a transformation. Don't get me started on "Nutshell" unplugged being better than the original -- the original with the electric guitar solo SHITS on it.
Versus Nirvana Unplugged, you have this awesome mix of their well-known songs, not well-known songs, and covers from David Bowie to the Meat Puppets to Leadbelly. Plus Kurt died a couple weeks after and the stage was set like a funeral. The music and the mystique cannot be topped”

The Nirvana setlist is just so much juicier. AIC is like hey, here's our songs that were already half acoustic. Nirvana is like hey, here's a mix of our obscure shit, well known shit, plus we're gonna cover Leadbelly and David Bowie. It adds more value over the normal band experience IMO
Brother is a great deeper track by AIC.
Another band a teenaged HotMic got very into in the mid-late 90’s
jar of flies is probably my favorite 'grunge' album/ep
"Pictures in a box at home
Yellowing and green with mold
So I can barely see your face
Wonder how that color taste"
Favorite part, chills. I think I may have already told you that in another thread
Yes I remember that. He wrote it about his brother who he hadn't seen or talked to in a while and he just wanted to see him again.
Agree totally. What a string of albums.
Gish might be my favorite.
I think this thread is really not driving home the point that Three Dolla Bill Y’all and Significant Other were both 90s rock classics
I will kick around fav tracks from both if anyone is game
Einstein on a Beach is my fav Counting Crows song. Randomly came across it on some CD compilation and was blown away.
Had the day off from work yesterday revisited this album, their self titled ‘92 album, The Golden Age, and the single “Whole Lotta Trouble” from the Empire Records soundtrack for the first time in probably ten years. They all hold up well. Their single “Low” was the quintessential alternative rock song of the 1990s and has been my opinion for 20 years.
One of, if not the most, under appreciated bands of the 90s. I don’t think many people realize how many TTWS songs are favorites of theirs until they go through a playlist of of TTWS.
I loved Gin Blossoms. Super underrated imo
I was about to say man, this band had this song AND the Friends theme song but I had my 90s R bands mixed up.
The Refreshments = King of the Hill theme song
The Rembrandts = Friends theme song
The Replacements = highly-regarded 80s band
Were they? They had great singles that all got copious airplay. Then the rest of the album was blah.
I actually saw them at a bar last year before COVID. They warm up with a couple songs, then they go "We will now perform the album New Miserable Experience" in its entirety.
Redav show me the underrated track that wasn't on the radio
Goat one hit wonder New Radicals
The best Cake song. Also like their "I Will Survive" cover from that album
To me, Primus is the most underrated and underappreciated band of the 90s. Everybody is aware of them, but they're never mentioned among the titans of the era. I think they're every bit as important as any band not named Nirvana. Some absolute fucking BANGERS in the 90s.
Frizzle Fry, Sailing the Seas of Cheese, Pork Soda, Tales from the Punchbowl, the Brown Album (without Tim Alexander), and Anti Pop (w/o Tim), just in the 90s. Fuuuuuck.
This one is way better than You Get What You Give imo
1994 is probably my all time favorite year in music. The amount of great albums released that year is insane.
Weezer - Blue Album
Oasis - Definitely Maybe
AIC - Jar of Flies
NIN - The Downward Spiral
Pantera - Far Beyond Driven
The Offspring - Smash
Hole - Live Through This
Live - Throwing Copper
STP - Purple
Marilyn Manson - Portrait of an American Family
Sponge - Rotting Pinata
Built to Spill - There's Nothing Wrong With Love
Korn - Korn
Nirvana - Unplugged in New York
Tom Petty - Wildflowers
Pearl Jam - Vitalogy
Green Day - Dookie
Soundgarden - Superunknown
Bush - Sixteen Stone
Yeah it and 95 are my sweet spot
Both 1997. Really tough call
I know that's a joke but that first creed album was good. Come at me
The riffs were solid, ngl
