POWER OF POP MUSIC 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 commercially viable 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…

REM “Shiny Happy People” (ft. Kate Pierson)

NIRVANA “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

DINOSAUR JR “The Wagon”

FLAMING LIPS “She Don’t Use Jelly”

JANE’S ADDICTION “Been Caught Stealing”

RADIOHEAD “High & Dry”

THE SMASHING PUMPKINS “Tonight, Tonight”

SUEDE “Trash”

BLUR “Song 2”

TEENAGE FANCLUB “The Concept”

Just the tip of the fucking iceberg!

…still there’s more…

    Great post Kev,

    Nice list… certainly agree with Radiohead, Suede, Smashing Pumpkins… love all 3 of those bands and I would probably throw a litte Catherine Wheel in there for good measure… but I agree this is just the tip of the iceberg… a really special moment in music history. Take care, Matt
