The harder edge of mainstream rock music in the late 90s turned into this awful caricature of misogynistic, homophobic, bro culture. It really is no wonder there was a staggering amount of sexual assaults at Woodstock 99.



Who here had frosted tips? Show yourselves.

Songs that impacted on rock radio and made Billboard's 1994 year end singles list:

John Mellencamp, Wild Night
Collective Soul, Shine
Crash Test Dummies, Mmm Mmm Mmm
Meatloaf, I'd Do Anything for Love
10,000 Maniacs, Because the Night
Cranberries, Linger
Gin Blossoms, Found Out About You
Bruce Springsteen, Streets of Philedelphia
Aerosmith, Crazy
Aerosmith, Amazing
Tom Petty, Mary Jane's Last Dance
Bon Jovi, Always

Some other rock radio #1's from that same year:
Pincushion, ZZ Top
Deuces are Wild, Aerosmith

Van Halen's Don't Tell Me What Love Can Do missed the list be mere weeks. Shucks.

Meanwhile, no list that involves the phrase 'dominating the airwaves' should ever include Liz Phair, Cracker, or the Meat Puppets.

The point is, you're right about the late 90's...it was pretty full of amelodic, gripless posteuring. But you put on your rose glasses for the era that you remember fondly, which was mostly decorated with unremarkable shit, legacy artists getting their last gaspy wheez around the chart circuit, and songs about being cumbersome to your girl.

yeah, late 90s radio was terrible. but it was cool in that it forced me to start to listen to classic rock stations more, and introduced me to all the 60s and 70s stuff i was only somewhat familiar with via my parents.

Korn made shitloads of catchy-as-fuck songs in their prime.

I'd still argue that Freak on a Leash is one of the best songs *from 1998.

It sure did in minneapolis due to Mary Lucia rocking Zone 105 FM. The list I stated was absolute truth in my world and thats all that matters. The rest of the world was full of idiots.

All songs that I dearly loved at the time. Tremendously LOVED at the time. And three of those are still in fairly heavy rotation.

The first two records are fantastic. After that it's all downhill.
