Never had interest in that band, I did see a Mashup of sorts because the movie Firestarter based on Stephen King's novel came circa 1983 and I was heavily interested in it. On YouTube you can see the band with clips from that film.
I will offer up Matthew Sweet to start with, he's got catchy Pop Rock songs from the early 1990s, MTV's 120 Minutes is actually now an archive of sorts
Ahh the 90's is so f*cking nostalgic when it comes to music All the great songs I used to listen to when I was little. Early and mid 90's Gangsta Rap, Late 90's Pop Music... Britney Spears, Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys... it's just so NOSTALGIC!

Watching the Oprah final season again, she had Backstreet Boys and Peter Frampton on the SAME SHOW! Now, tell me what that all means! hahaha
I know you're sarcastic, we all got mistreated by mean pop culture and dumb as bricks record companies...
Still, Pearl Jam over Nirvana for me any day! hahaha RIP Kurt Cobain however, he was an amazing talent cut short
KICK TOTAL ARSE ^^
Temple of the Dog is from the era, even some reunion footage on the 'Tube. Always liked the track

So, then, why would you follow popular trends or your peers? I did the same for a while, but I lived to regret it, the bands that were popular early 1980s were REO Speedwagon and Van Halen, and I found I really liked them in the long run. So on some fronts, it's hard to tell! haha
If you liked it, so be it (Robinski, I think he or you might have been Hoodwinked to follow the masses!)
This Everclear song is one of their best me thinks
My late friend Jared enjoyed the BELLY band....
Lemonheads require mentioning, non-stereo for the promo of it:
Today by SP is a great song... really nostalgic stuff .....
So, then, why would you follow popular trends or your peers?
So what give you that assumption? Besides the fact that kind of music was popular back in the 90's.
Dude, you picked obvious chart topping acts, I know that's how they get things in your face so you pay attention, but of course, sometimes you gotta dig a bit
This comment I saw on a 1991 Letterman music performance, Damn Yankees, one of the best PROJECT bands, like Bad Co of the 70s, really formed there in 1990 as I recall
This guy sums up a good credo to live one's life
To the idiot "kids" who think you have to look like or sound like or become something different just to fit in, will realize someday that we ALL die. If you don't live your life just as exactly like you want to, you're a fool. Moral to this story? Dress how YOU want. Grow your hair long or be bald. Play the music YOU love. Screw all you cowards and morons who are too stupid and afraid to do that. Someday YOU too will be just as dead as the rest of us who WILL do & play what we want
This again, in response to YouTube comment bickering, I didn't follow all that, but this guy said a mouthful!
@Slamman- I don't follow trends, especially todays trends. I HATE them. But just because I listen to like what, 9 popular bands, makes me a trendfag? I just like the music.. doesn't matter if artists go mainstream or not. It's the musical integrity that counts. Don't be such a f*cking musical elitist please.
P.S: Bands/Artists I listen to:
Followed by Ghosts Mogwai Red Sparowes Noisia Blue Stahli The Qemists Pendulum RED Hammock 65daysofstatic We Made God Incubus Radiohead Children of Bodom Breaking Benjamin MF Doom Bloc Party The Klaxons Deftones Submersed Silverchair 10 Years Tortoise Maybeshewill The American Dollar
I could go on. See? I dig deep. Let's get back on topic now.

Mockage, I'm not dictating your taste, see that above YT comment I put in just above you ^^^ I agree with that sentiment that you'll live your live following what's popular and not altogether what you, yourself like. I know this from personal experience, and I can save you the grief ...That said, there is an original Incubus, another band that had their name usurped out from under them, I make it a mission to give the other bands their fair share of the lime-light, that's why I mention 80s Disturbed, the 80s Impaler, or several others I've known over the years, another band pops up and they get more attention, which just makes it that much harder for a NON COVER, original artist to gain their own audience. You can see this is a problem.
Slamman knows what's up... sh*t, cat, he was alternative rockin before i even discovered the pixies....respect
Cool man, but we METALHEADS were dragged Kickin' and Screamin' into the 90s along with everyone else, but outside of Headbanger's Ball, I made a point to watch MTV's 120 Minutes, it was Lewis Largent picking songs for that show as well, and I think it's what hurt MTV, he was program director alone, for more then one show! hahaha
I'm not a follower of that band, but certainly know OF THEM, To me, it was a bit too experimental, but they showed their diversity over the years, coming out with the If I were a Carpenter tribute, that musta surprised some folks! haha
