The 1990's were a whirlwind time for all things rock and roll. In just 10 years we saw grunge, pop punk, Britpop, nu metal, and even the last remnants of hair metal infect the airwaves in almost equal measure. Given all the different genres at play, there's bound to be at least a few great songs that have been forgotten.
For one reason or another, these tunes have been great in their time but have slowly drifted from view in recent years. The fact that any of these tracks were slept on is mind-boggling considering the pedigree of some of the artists. Granted, some of these acts didn't quite reach the heights as someone like Led Zeppelin, but these tracks at least deserve to be up there with the all time classics.
From groundbreaking songs to bold new left turns, each of these songs was something unique at the time that helped keep the hard rock genre alive and well.
Even if some of these don't exactly set the world on fire right out of the gate, they shouldn't be swept to the side in favor of other songs.
While there are many things we would like to leave in the '90s, make sure these tunes aren't one of them.
I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
