Throwback Thursday - Listening To 90s Alternative Music
Throwback Thursday post here. Been listening to 90salternativemusic since 6 in the morning. I know when one says alternative, it usually is limited to rock music and its many sub-genres. I do think that anything that wasn't mainstream was alternative regardless of its genre.
The grunge scene in Seattle is as alternative as it can be. Bands like Nirvana and Mudhoney defined a generation. There was PearlJam , StoneTemplePilots , and AliceInChains . Established bands like Metallica and U2 had a resurgence, no doubt bouyed by the interest of both mainstream fans and media. I was listening to a lot of hip hop artists as well. Rappers from both the East Coast and West Coast played in my room. Their lyrical venom spitting across an aural backdrop of beats and loops. Tupac and BiggieSmalls were gods in the eyes of their respective fans. I had listened to BReal and ODB and learned much about life from Dr-Dre , SnoopDogg , Nas , and Jay-Z .
I can rage against the machine or be still in my own soul asylum . Whatever I needed, alternative music provided it. What sounded like garbage to others provided an oasis to me.
Not going to touch on local bands in this post but I like say that hearing Eraserheads 'Shake Yer Head' started this TBT post.
Just want to know if you can name all the bands I've mentioned 'in secret' in this post.
