Can't agree more about the whole 90's alternative rock era - do not call it grunge! - being special and groundbreaking in many ways. Pearl Jam still makes top notch music to this day and they fill up arenas without any trouble. Look at my av! You forgot Layne Staley; his voice was just so different and clear. Alice in Chains was a great band and Layne is missed. There was a lot of garbage born in the 90s that I'd rather forget though such as 'NSync and their boy band brotherhood.Originally Posted by AJane;3396397;
I also loved the 80's perhaps minus the whole hairband thing but definitely New Wave, the 80's punk and even all the mid-weight cheese pop was in a class of it's own and still feels good. I still listen to 80's radio stations on the internet and it's never boring. Psychedelic Furs, The Cure, Cindy Lauper etc.
I can find something to like about every decade, even in the bad 70s disco wasteland.
