Best 90s Albums by a Band


The Top Ten

1 Nevermind - Nirvana

Nevermind! I don't need to say more - Irina2932

2 Blood Sugar Sex Magik - Red Hot Chili Peppers

This album was Magik

This album-masterpiece made them Legends! - Irina2932

3 OK Computer - Radiohead

Let me get this straight. This album, this masterpiece, was beaten by the Spice Girls and a boy band that didn't survive the decade. Alright then. I'll go cry myself to sleep now.

A masterful album that features some of my favourite songs by the band. Full of sonic gems including Let down and No surprises. I would argue The Bends is still better, but this is still one of the bands very best works. Amazing

Between this and Dookie for me.

Nevermind who? Blood Sugar Sex Magik who? They all can choke.
This is masterpiece, this is the REAL music by a band in 90's!

4 Dookie - Green Day
5 Get a Grip - Aerosmith

"Livin' on the Edge", "Eat the Rich", "Cryin'", "Amazing", "Fever", "Shut Up and Dance", "Crazy" - Irina2932

12 Millennium - Backstreet Boys

Another great achievement for Pop Industry - Irina2932

13 Spice - Spice Girls

You can hate them but you can't ignore Spice Girls' huge influence on Pop culture. This debut album by SG was real breakthrough in the 90's - Irina2932

14 Smash - The Offspring

The album that made The Offspring famous! Still as great as it was in '94.

Uh huh the spice girls TOTALLY created a masterpiece and the backstreet boys were OBVIOUSLY NOT an insignificant pop boy band... Yeah right!
