Looking at what iTunes has labeled 90s Music in my collection, here are some albums that I still listen to and love (with one cut in case anyone cares).

Beck – Loser
De La Soul – De La Soul is Dead
Don Byron – Bug Music
Emmylou Harris – Wrecking Ball
Fiona Apple – Tidal
Foo Fighters – The Color and the Shape
Gillian Welch – Revival
Los Lobos – Kiko

And I gotta gotta go, I have to be someplace. Suffice to say there’s plenty more after “L” in the alphabet.

Except I can’t forget Lucinda Williams – Car Wheels on a Gravel Road

What a great album!! That might be my favorite from that time!

Probably not going to be able to rank them, and many of the bands/musicians have spanned different decades. So, in no particular order (anything that pops into my head at the moment):

- Modest Mouse
– The Breeders
– Neutral Milk Hotel
– Tom Waits
– Nine Inch Nails
– Beck
– A Tribe Called Quest
– Beastie Boys
– R.E.M.
– Sparklehorse

I’ll stop here, because I’m old (44) and kept listing things that were from the 80s, like The Pixies, early Ministry, etc that may have had 90s releases, but I don’t think really count. or something

You can go ahead and laugh at some of these, I am used to it :p
These are the ones I listened to IN the 90s, most of these have fallen by the wayside now.

Depeche Mode
Counting Crows
Creed
Hootie and the Blowfish
Celine Dion
Enya
Madonna
Alanis Morissette

I still listen to some of those once in awhile for nostalgia.
The bands that had music in the 90s that I listen to NOW:

Nine Inch Nails
Tool
Peter Murphy
Porcupine Tree
Depeche Mode
The Cure

I think my taste in 90s music is a ton better now!

I liked Creed a lot. I also liked The Cult but I’m not sure if they were 90’s or 80’s.
