We tried to get GBV to play at our music festival, but they refused due to their need to have pitchers of beer supplied for them on stage. (STUPID DRY CAMPUS)
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
Assponies and Butt Trumpets? Man, I'm glad I almost exclusively listen to country music.
Britpop. Radiohead, Blur, Oasis, Pulp, Supergrass (one of the most underrated bands ever) all came about in the 90s. And those are just the superfamous ones. It was a great decade for unabashedly British music. And on our side of the pond, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Beck, Fiona Apple, my beloved Rufus Wainwright, they all came about in the 90s, and again, these are just some of the famous ones.
The 90s were my musical coming of age and there are some really seminal albums from the decade -- Ok Computer, Automatic for the People, Loveless, Screamadelica, Vitalogy, Three Feet High and Rising, that's all just off the top of my head and I know I could come up with about 20 more pretty easily. I've always thought the 80s were the underappreciated decade, really; the good stuff seemed to get more buried behind radio tripe that decade.
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

Get your nunchucks and the keys to your dad's car. I know where we can get a gun
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
I remember when my friend gave me a mix tape with Fugazi Repeater on one side and Nirvana Bleach on the other - that was like a musical awakening for me. That was shortly before the Nevermind/Pear Jam-Ten/Alice in Chains-Dirt explosion. Great times. Some unreal bands that came out of that - I'm still a big fan. My Ipod is loaded with them - Screaming Trees, Dinosaur Jr, L7, Faith No More, Suicidal Tendencies - all great bands I enjoyed immensely.
Ahhh - Nirvana. One of the best bands ever..... Wish they were around.
Collective Soul anyone?

Do you have your shirt on? - Adam Dunn to Marty on the Bananna Phone.
I've rebought a mp3 player, after my first ipod was stolen, when I looked through my list of songs, I had forgotten I had alot them on there.
Bands like Suicidal Tendencies, Danzig, Gwar, Guttermouth, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Nine Inch Nails, and my others populate the airwaves from my mp3 player. Mix in some Dio, Sabbath, assorted goth/deathmetal (whichever you perfer to call it) and you have the foundation of the 2,000 songs currently on my mp3 player.
