Live, I saw Smashing Pumpkins, Janes Addiction, and The Beastie Boys, live in the nineties in their heydays. Great shows by all of em. My favorite Pumpkins songs were Cherub Rock, Rocket, and Space Boy, from Siamese Dream. Three Days was my favorite Janes song, great live and some kick ass guitar work by Navarro.



Informer - Snow

Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit [I had to add it]

Marky Mark - Good Vibrations


asshole! you put SLTS as good vibrations as well!!!


you must have a very young dad.


I went to Lollapalooza, I think it was '94. Smashing Pumpkins headlined. Breeders, L7, Beastie Boys, Nick Cave, some others.

By far, the best band of the evening was George Clinton and the P-Funk Allstars (ie Parliament/Funkadelic). One of the greatest bands ever. They were worth the price of admission alone. Smashing Pumpkins were the worst of the whole line up.


Yeah, that's the same palooza I saw only in Denver Co. George Clinton was a trip, never had seen a show quite like that. We had front row tickets at Fiddlers Green and I thought the Pumpkins kicked ass. Oh well, different strokes. I was more of a metal head on those days but really enjoyed The Beastie Boys performance as well.

And dammit people already beat me to Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana.


i'm 21 my dad is like 52 or something, idk but he's old to me.

anyway, my parents are split up so like when i was at home i would watch Rapcity w/ Big Tigga on BET after school, that was when i was in like 4th-5th grade. i remember my friend had Ruff Ryders anthem taped off the radio.

so thats what i listened to at my mom's house but i remember my dad had Green Day's Dookie CD, i vividly remember Dinosaur JR just because of the weird CD artwork. dude my dad has Weezer CDs for Christ Sakes...yet he gets mad when i call him dude...figure that one out.

that was also when Beavis & Butthead was a popular show and they would have misc videos on there although must of them were too grunge for my liking.

i bought Rancid's CD just for Ruby Soho when i was 12. plus that's just the music people listened to back then. rap was just starting to get mainstream.

anyway, back to the music

Third Eye Blind - Semi Charmed Life

Harvey Danger - Flagpole Sitter (NOT ORIGINAL VIDEO) gay ass youtube blocks all the good ones...

Semisonic - Closing Time

Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy

i'm stuck trying to figure out the name of a particular band right now arrrrrrrrgh i think the name had something to do with spinal fluid

found it...Pearl Jam

too bad i don't like any of their songs, ha

Gin Blossoms - Hey Jealousy

i used to think the words were "Hey Jessy" when i was a kid

Gin Blossoms - Follow You Down

Violent Femmes - Blister in the Sun

^ is that a scene from Gross Point Blank?

Beck - Loser

Bush - Glycerine


R&B from the 90's had so much more passion than the R&B from nowadays. its not even comparable. R Kelly in the 90s was amazing.


bet you guys didn't see this coming

Prodigy - Smack My Bitch Up

i had this CD, Fat of The Land

only i didnt like about this song was the gay ass singing for a good 60 seconds.


fuck wasn't the full vid so here's Firestarter to make up for it







I'm too distracted watching everyone else's videos to find more.


When the news came out that Kurt Cobain had taken his life, someone requested this song as a tribute on the radio, so when I think 90s music, this is a song I think of -
Paw - Jessie


I totally forgot to add this to the R&B and Hip Hop list!

Dr. Dre Feat. Snoop - Nuthin but a G Thang
