The 90s was a hell of a decade for rock music. We had the dawn of Grunge, the advent of alt-rock, and even the beginnings of rap-rock and nu-metal. There were TONS of bands we loved back then, but these 15 still have a special place in our hearts.
Does anybody even know what the lyrics to "Smells Like Teen Spirit" are actually about? Yeah, me neither.
Faith No More
One of the singularly weirdest rock bands to ever get huge, somehow we all looked past that to realize that Faith No More are awesome.
Alice In Chains
One of the darker, moodier bands of the grunge era, Alice In Chains were more or less the King Midas of rock music.
Much like Faith No More, these guys were known for their eclectic, weird sound, and we loved them for it.
Rage Against The Machine
The idea of combining rap with aggressive rock music was still pretty new when Rage exploded onto the scene, and they're still legends despite not having lasted much past the 90s.
Moody, melancholy, and epic. We'll never see their kind again. Rest in peace, Chris Cornell.
Red Hot Chili Peppers
One of the absolute masters of combining rock, pop and funk, the Chili Peppers are absolute legends.
