Re: 90s music?
Funny, I remember hearing "Sweet Child O Mine" on the radio in 1997 and thinking, "Man, that song is 10 years old now. Where has the time gone?"
I was in college in the early-mid 90s, and we watched MTV about 12 hours a day (until Comedy Central came around). The day Kurt Cobain shot himself, every room in the dorm had MTV on and their doors open.
I bought about 2 CDs a week from different bands and tried to like all of them, but most of them were just bad indie bands. Funny how a college atmosphere can make you try to mold your tastes, but in the end, you still just like what you like. All my favorite bands were guitar-heavy with a decent sense of melody, good hooks, and lyrics that meant something more than just "let's rock".
Nirvana, Afghan Whigs, Dinosaur Jr, and Smashing Pumpkins were my faves. I also loved Soul Coughing, probably because their sound was so distinct and different from the rest of the music I liked.
