81 Alanis Morissette Alanis Morissette

In 1995 she released an album that changed the whole musical world and sold over 33 million copies worldwide. Alanis deserves all the respect just because of that but I'll be honest, I love her Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie album as much

84 Dinosaur Jr.
85 Sublime Sublime Sublime was an American ska punk band from Long Beach, California, formed in 1988. The band's line-up, unchanged until their breakup, consisted of Bradley Nowell, Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh.

When considering great albums I think about the few you can play from beginning to end without skipping track. "Sublime" (1996) is one of them. Top 5 in the mid-late 90's

They only had 3 hit singles, but they were probably one of the top 4 bands of the 90s along with Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, and Blind Melon

Did they have a bad song? Best band in the 90s

92 Pavement

The indie-rock band to rule them all. From Slanted and Enchanted to Terror Twilight, each of pavements 5 albums is a masterpiece. Lyrically complex, musically innovative, they are unquestionably the best band of the 90's.

Great band. They are really quite mis-understood though. People sometimes don't give them a chance. But, those are also the people who have never heard of (or don't like because they also never gave a chance) sonic youth, Dinosaur Jr, Yo La Tengo, MBV and Built to Spill.

93 311 311 311 is an American rock band from Omaha, Nebraska. The band was formed in 1988 by vocalist and guitarist Nick Hexum, lead guitarist Jim Watson, bassist Aaron "P-Nut" Wills.

97 New Kids On the Block New Kids On the Block New Kids on the Block is an American boy band from Boston, Massachusetts. The band currently consists of brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, and Danny Wood.

Best boy band ever! In 1990-1991 nobody was above them, not even MJ or Madonna. They were the idols of millions of teenagers around the world and there is a reason for that: they were that good. Jordan's voice is simply from another galaxy. They still got the right stuff!

Hit the pinnacle of their carreer in 1990 with step by step, catchy tunes and nice lyrics.

98 Dr. Dre Dr. Dre Andre Romelle Young, better known by his stage name Dr. Dre, is an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur. He is the founder and current CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics.

Come on guys, Toni Braxton is one of the greatest artists from the 90's. Musical critics and many experts can easily prove my statement. Her amazing vocal is not just recognizable, it's unique!

Hits - "Un-Break My Heart", "You're making' Me High", "Breathe Again", "Another Sad Love Song", "You Mean the World to Me", "Let It Flow", "How Could an Angel Break My Heart", "I Don't Want To", "You're making' Me High"
