Definitely Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden are my favorite bands from the 90s. I also like Machines of Loving Grace, Gravity Kills, and the Old 97s.

Anyone like Soul Coughing?

Oh man, the 90's were definitely a time for good music. I mean, yes the whole hair metal movement was already fading away from the mainstream, and bands like Metallica and Megadeth were mellowing out, but there was still a lot of great music that came out of the 90's. If I had to choose, I would most likely pick bands such as Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Korn, and Pearl Jam. The lesser known acts that came out at the time were also good, such as Sponge, The Nixons, Screaming Trees, My Sisters Machine, Sugartooth, Fishbone, and Elastica. In my opinion, the 90's were my introduction to great alternative rock music and it pretty much bridged the gap between when music was good and when music would start to turn super bad.

I completely forgot about Filter. A lot of people liked the first, raw album with "Hey Man Nice Shot" on it and rejected a lot of the music on the second album, like "Take a Picture." But I like both kinds of songs from them. Hopefully they will come out with another album at some point.

Overall, I liked 1990s music better than the previous decade. I especially liked that early 1990s Seattle sound.

Possibly the worst era of music. The death of decent to good mainstream music.

but didnt the Offspring start in the mid 80's?


Yea, they started way back in 1984 but didn't have their first commercial hit for 10 years on their 3rd album (Smash).

Pfffft. Whatever man, grunge is so cool. Flannel, dirty hair, ripped jeans and "**** you, i hate everybody" attitude? DIBS.
A lot of my favorite music was born/alive in the nineties:
Jawbreaker
Jets to Brazil
the Promise Ring
Guided by Voices (they existed in the 90s. so It counts.)
Fiona Apple
Sublime
Texas is the Reason
FUGAZI
and hate me, but Shakira was awesome in the 90's.

and like the offspring, THe Melvins, and Queensryche were both going in the early 80's Hell Kurt Cobain used to play with some of the guys from the Melvins before Nirvana formed.

I just saw a video on youtube of Nico Hoon(Shannon Hoon's daughter) singing with the rest of the band(Blind Melon for those who don't know) Pretty freeking cool

2 bands I didnt see mentioned are Candlebox, and Feeder. Both bands I love to this day.

I'm sure I'm setting myself up for massive amounts of ridicule by making this statement; I'm certainly showing my age, my unhipness, or both-but my vote for best band of the 90's:

Hootie and The Blowfish.

Go ahead, let me have it; but I wouldn't ever trade the memories of rocking my newborn son to sleep while singing, "Hold My Hand."

To the person who wanted to know who sang "Jumper", you were thinking of Third Eye Blind.

I am so glad that I grew up during the 90's! I would die if any of this music went away...

Candlebox
Pearl Jam
Fiona Apple
Stabbing Westward
Alice In Chains
Rage Against The Machine
The Bloodhound Gang
God Lives Underwater (Can't believe that no one mentioned these guys yet!)
Social Distortion (even though they started in the late 70's/early 80's, I still group them with my 90's faves)
Soul Asylum
Everclear
Citizen King

I saw Soul Asylum and Everclear at the county fair last summer and I have to say that it was the BEST concert I've ever seen! And I love the fact that DJ Brooks of Citizen King started a Caribbean restaurant here in Milwaukee. It's a great place.
