Black Sabbath
Aerosmith
The Sex Pistols

Well for some harder 90's rock, there's always Rage Against The Machine, and Alice in Chains. Nirvana is also worth checking out.

My Friend Ian(God bless his heart (Hes called Bannanman or something on this)) tried to get me to listen to Rage Against the machine and i just couldn't handle it.No point with the heavy stuff.

Even if your'e not gonna be into heavier stuff, Alice in Chains and Nirvana are still definitely worth checking out, but Alice in Chains, is on the heavier side

Well, I mean, maybe Weezer did a cover of it or something. But if they did, I never knew about it.

Everything Weezer did between the years 1994 and 1997 is epic.
