Top 10 Rock Bands of the 1990sgvats
The Top Ten
I know, I know. This is super overrated, but I didn't want to make anyone mad by not putting it first. - Stonerquist
Nirvana is the best band ever
Nirvana almost wasn't elligible for this list, having had a strong base in the 80s. But nirvana still had major success and influentual break throughs before kurt cobains suicide in 1994. Nirvana was unquestionably had more emmotion, song writting, and popularity than just about every other band from the 90s.
BEST SONG: HEART SHAPED BOX
Green Day is like my life their music has inspired me to do so many things with my life they should be at least top five though I love nirvana too Green Day in my opinion is the best Billie Mike and Tre for life!
Almost missed this one. But I would not be able to do that. Green Day is a great alt. Band. Note that their OLD MUSIC is better than their new stuff, but a great band all together. - Stonerquist
I really cannot see Green Day being lower than #2. The early 1990s were almost the end of great rock bands, but Nirvana has to fit here & Green Day is the exception to the decline of the rest into navel-gazing emos or thrashing thuds. Navel-gazing emo isn't always a bad thing, but it sure ain't "Rock".
1990 - Slappy
1992 - Kerplunk
1994 - Dookie
1995 - Insomniac
1997 - Nimrod
One of the best rock bands EVER, not to mention in the 90s. The 90s is just when they were the best. They had their two best albums in the 90s. Seriously Radiohead is the best.
Definitely Radiohead, even over Nirvana. By far the most influential band of the decade.
Personally I think radiohead is basically nirvana with actually technical ability. But actually, that's a great thing especially since bands like creed and collective soul are just shallow rip offs. Radiohead is pretty much the only post grunge band who is allowed on this list
BEST SONG: PABLO
They deserve a spot here. They are such a good band. - StonerquistV 1 Comment
They deserve to be on the upper level of the list!
I think Pearl Jam deserve more than third. 25 years and they are still selling out stadiums.
No band better... And they're still doing it!
Even though Vedder directly influenced the vocal style of Creed, Collective Soul, and company (BARF! ) they still had incredible angst and powerful gituar rifts which makes them slightly better than most grunge bands of the early 90s
BEST SONG: ALIVE
I'm really tired of deftones never gettin any representation on these lists. They're the most talented nu metal band ever. Period. Also all those nu metal singers who get all wispery and then explode with rage are just mimicking chino monero's vocal style. Also the deftones are the only nu metal bands who can play comfortably out of they're genre.
BEST SONG: 7 WORDS
To that comment below:
Deftones aren't even Nu-Metal. They were for their first album or 2. They are alternative metal. They aren't "playing out of their genre"
John Rzeznik & Tobby Takac - they are amazing talents! Thank you for all the great music please don't stop making awesome songs...
Do I really have to argue this one? Pantera wrote some of the best rifts of all time, kept thrash alive in the 90s, and did it all in a groovey style that made everyone in the audience go nuts.
BEST SONG: CEMETARY GATES
WALK ON HOME BOY - Brobusky
Fantastic band.Deserve a place in Top Ten..I recommend their following songs to you:
Want You Bad..
Were to start? RATM unquestionably crafted the nu metal style. Had the best bassist of all time. Had the best guitarist of the 90s. And are the most politicaly charged band of all time. RATM isn't just the best band of the 90s they're one of the best of all time
BEST SONG: WAKE UP
Aenima was such an amazing album. These guys deserve more recongnition
Tool is, for me, the rush of the 90s. They have no boundries. All of tool's songs take you on a journey and have amazing composer. Tool also remains one of the darkest bands of all time
BEST SONG: LATERALUS
