    Every morning, there is a missed call on my phone when I arrive at the office.

    That missed call always shows up as "From WOMENS CANCER"

    I really need to stay late one of these days so that I can pick it up and tell women's cancer to fuck off.

    It seriously damages my world view to know a baller like Pio is considering paying for bush.

    You don't pay for bush...you pay to make it leave when you're done with it.

    Bush was a horrible band. if they sucked any harder, they'd be Nirvana.

    R.A.T.M, Bosstones,Korn,and a bunch of other bands. . .

    Bush had possibly the most 90s song there was with Swallowed. Bush was not a horrible band but neither were they a timeless band; they were very much a band of the moment and I appreciated them for that. I like their guitar tone and their music is not hard for a hack like me to play along to.

    I largely agree with Piob's assessment of Bush. They're certainly not the 90s band I'll play for my kids, but they're representative of their milieu and listenable enough to still check out from time to time. Though I should admit that I've had a soft spot for them since "Everything Zen" came out and a friend pointed out that Gavin Rossdale sounded like he really wished he was in a metal band but got stuck in an alt-rock band because metal was basically nonexistent in the mid 90s (we were metalheads and in a metal band). Also, "Glycerine" was my go-to woe-is-me song when my girlfriend broke up with me in 11th grade.

    For you Mudvayne kids, enjoy your Slipknot ripoff.

    I loved that first Candlebox album, but they were probably one of the most boring bands I ever saw live. I saw them on Metallica's tour for the box set. It was Fight, Candlebox, Suicidal Tendencies, and Metallica (AIC was supposed to be there but bailed). When Candlebox came on, they sounded great, but they were weirdly lacking in stage presence. It was almost like someone had put a live album on so we could hang out and listen to it

    I also agree with all of that. Alice in chains or smashing pumpkins are my favorite bands of that era, but Bush is listenable.

    Also, Stone Sour is better than Slipknot in my opinion.

    AIC is where it's at. There is no grunge band that even comes close to them for me.

    Also, you're probably going to laugh at this (if you even know who it is), but the single most underrated record of the 90s was Ugly Kid Joe's "Menace to Sobriety." They got lost in the 90s transition from metal to grunge/post-grunge, and having their first big hit basically be a novelty song didn't help, but that record is a masterpiece of funk metal. It's easily in my top five records of the decade.

    Agree 100% on Stone Sour. They may not be as iconic as Slipknot, but they're hands down Corey's better band.

    I am, of course, a big AIC fan. I was lucky as I got to see them in the Detroit area at a 3k seat venue along with Live. STP is also one of my favorite 90s band and I really appreciate Dean DeLeo's guitar playing. The guitar line for Interstate Love Song is highly underrated as it's not show off but rather very melodic.

    your bands are all decent but none of them can hold a candle to Limp Bizkit

    Agreed.

    Actually, the quintessential 90s album was released in 1988.

    I was a fan of the LB back in the day. :embar:

    I still think "$3 Bill Y'all" was an excellent representation of numetal before the genre got bloated and ridiculous, but I admit that in retrospect I don't exactly feel proud of having liked them. I look back on them like I imagine 80s kids look back on Winger.

    That said, Wed Borland was one hell of a guitarist, and it's too bad he wasn't in a band that could really take advantage of his skills.

    still feel that Korn had better music than LB.. ie:drumming, guitar.Fred's attitude would have lit that band up.
