I can guess why your nickname here is Rockhead, Rockhead! Because you freaking rock! Does that make you redundant? Razz Wink

Is Flea completely nude in this video? I can't even see flesh colored underwear on him....

some would call me worse than redundant...

and yes, i'm pretty sure that's raw buttflesh.

I also like the punkins, but not as much.

Bullet with butterfly wings (2006)

this is a later tune, but they started in 88 and played together till 2000.

I wonder why this switching off happened?

I think aging might have something to do with it, like you mentioned. But for me I think it has more to do with it being a bad decade. I like a lot of music outside my "time" but for me the 2000's haven't been particularly inspired (didn't think the typical 80's music from America was either).

(When you have a minute) care to post personal Nirvana and Pearl Jam favourites? I'd like that.

I'm very much a song guy, in that I usually only can stand one or two songs from any one artist. But Nirvana and Pearl Jam join only a couple of other artists for me where I like a substantial portion of their discography. So I'd actually recommend whole albums:

Pearl Jam: 10 (1991)
Nirvana: Nevermind (1991)

I feel like listening to some music, so I'm going to post some of my favorite post-1990 songs and put them in order by date:

Tool - Sober (1993)

Back home & listening. Thanks for the music, everyone. This is very interesting!

The Seattle Grunge Scene! Loved that too with Alice and Chains, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, etc....

Soundgarden, yes!

I think if I was the right age at the time, I would have identified strongly with dark & angsty Seattle grunge. I know a lot of my older (secondary school) students did. They used to bring their tapes to class to play. Many were shattered when Kurt Cobain died. You've just reminded me.

One of my personal favorites - La vie en rose by Grace Jones. I love that song...

Interesting, Jane. The number of times I've seen the Grace Jones image (it was everywhere!) , but this is actually the first time I've heard her music. It has that certain international slow & trancey/dancey feel. Smile

@Robert Gentel,
Now that is quite a collection, Robert!

I'm about a third of my way through ... listening with interest.

I'm thinking that Pearl Jam is such a thoughtful & serious band. And a very good one. I wish I'd come across them well before this. Played a couple of their tracks a couple of times over to catch their lyrics better. I imagine I'll be playing them again. Some of their tracks here have almost a dirge-like, mesmerizing quality. I liked Release very much. They are good!

I had to smile when I heard the first few bars of Smells Like Teen Spirit. You have no idea how many times I've heard that in classrooms in the early 90s! Brought back vivid memories of some very nice, idealistic year 11 & 12 students I taught. Some of them just adored Kurt! He was such an important influence.

I'm going to listen to the rest over the next couple of days. Thanks.

OK, I think I'll leave it here for the time being.

Thanks to all of you who posted. This has been quite an education. I'm certain (as is my way) that I'll return to this thread & play & replay. One listen is never enough, as you'd know. That's just scratching the surface! Smile

A few one- or two-hit wonders from the '90s, some may be more popular now, I dunno (these are from a 90s collection we have, these are some of my faves from that collection). In all fairness, Jamiroquai also had a hit from The Napolean Dynamite soundtrack ("Canned Heat").
