Provided there's anyone left outside the pit...

Can any of you fellow UGers provide me with some good bands and songs that fit into the glorious scene of Alternative music from the 90's (Preferably from America, or England)...?

For example, these are some of the bands I listen to:
Jane's Addiction, Alice in Chains, Nine Inch Nails, Primus, early RHCP, Butthole Surfers, Ministry.

Please let me know if you have anything to share! thanks

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

Third Eye Blind
Beck
Blind Melon
Cranberries
Everclear
Green Day
Pearl Jam
Offspring
Pixies
Spin Doctors
Weezer

I put a ton of my capital into SW Airlines... The next day, THE NEXT DAY these nutters fly into the WTC. What the hell? Apparently no one wanted to fly anymore, and I was like "What gives? God damnit Osama, let me win a fuggin' game!"

Because I'm one of the only people that ever brings up Lanegans work.

I'm very surprised no one said Nirvana. I've heard all the bands that came to mind except that one.

Dinosaur Jr? No?

P.S. I already like Radiohead a lot!

Ocean Colour Scene, some of their songs are really laid back with a summery feel yet some of their other songs are really upbeat :P

I'll try not to repeat any. Ride, Catherine Wheel, and Swervedriver were pretty good at maneuvering the grungier side of shoegaze.

Love Battery went kind of the opposite way and added a psychedelic feel to grunge.

Kyuss, the ultimate stoner rock band. Pretty much a grungier, more Zeppelin-influenced Queens of the Stone Age.

Dino Jr is a great band, but their best stuff is from the 80s.

Except for Without a Sound. An incredibly underrated album.

Not just Love Battery. Screaming Trees and even Alice in Chains to a certain extent did too.
