Not every band can claim they’ve left a vast legacy that spans genres and decades. And not every band can make that claim while still being very much alive and kicking. Motörhead, however, can make this claim. Motörhead will tell you themselves that they are a mere rock and roll band. But everyone else […]

Rob Zombie: A Retrospective

By |March 23rd, 2015|All, Best Ever, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Rock, The 90s|0 Comments|

You might be prone to overlooking Rob Zombie if you were to compile a list of today’s top shock alternative rockers. Manson, who just released a tape, would probably come to mind first. But to skip over one of the 90s hardest rocking musicians would be a dire oversight. He’s not a has-been by […]

Best Ever: 7 Ladies of Lilith Fair

By |February 7th, 2014|1997, 1998, 1999, All, Best Ever, The 90s|3 Comments|

Lilith, by its Hebrew definition, is a name that translates to mean “creature of the night”. In Jewish Mythology, Lilith was actually the “first Eve,” biblically speaking, made from the same earth as Adam—as opposed to Eve who came from one of Adam’s ribs.  Considering herself Adam’s equal, Lilith refused to be subservient to […]

Pixies: Bossanova (1990)

By |January 28th, 2014|1990, Alternative, Best Ever, Pop, Punk, The 90s, Uncategorized|0 Comments|

I remember the first time I ever heard of the Pixies. My best friend, and would-be band mate had we ever managed to practice together, had been reading Kurt Cobain’s journal, and apparently Kurt Cobain had mentioned them as one of his influences. At the record store with the very same friend, he pointed […]

Modest Mouse is one of those indie bands that went from literally nothing to extreme fame and worth through the classic method: getting better and sticking with it.

Collective Soul: Collective Soul (1995)

By |December 1st, 2013|1995, All, Pop, Rock, The 90s|0 Comments|

I remember listening to this more times than I can count as my mother drove me around in her Caprice Classic. The spiritual debut cassette from Collective Soul, their first self-titled work was also their most successful, releasing soon after “Shine” became a surprise hit for them.

Belle and Sebastian: Tigermilk (1996)

By |November 25th, 2013|1996, All, Alternative, Best Ever, Pop, The 90s|0 Comments|

Belle and Sebastian are easily one of the more influential indie-pop bands to come out of the 90s (especially in Europe). This is one of those nearly-perfect records in my books, and not because everything is right on key or because it uses just the right amount of violin, but simply because the overwhelming […]
