PoPTV – THE ALTERNATIVE ROCKS [VIDEOS]PoPTV – THE ALTERNATIVE ROCKS [VIDEOS]

If you’re reading this and were born in the 90s (I know, unlikely), then hopefully you’d know who Nirvana was and not be caught wearing the above tee merely cos it’s ‘hip and cool’. Thing is, of course, the early 90s saw the last┬ácommercially┬áviable rock music before the music scene went pear-shaped in the noughties. In any case, the 90s witnessed the weird going pro as alternative rock became fashionable…. these are my favourite musical memories from that special time…

RADIOHEAD “High & Dry”
