So a few minutes ago I began compiling a list of strictly Alternative Music from the 90's that I feel were good in their time, and would provide me with some nostalgiac moments. Of course the ideas were flowing at first with ease but steadily slowed to a halt.

This is where you guys come in. Anyone that likes thinking back to the good old 90's and is good with recalling bands that were popular/had good hits please feel free to put out some band/song names to help my list feel complete.

I'm not looking for anything particular except 90's and alternative. No nirvana please, I'm looking for less commonly heard songs.

Here is what I have so far, I'm trying to get around 110-120 songs:

Little Black Backpack- ????

Don't you understand the importance of correct spelling and grammar? It's the online symbol of maturity. And you as sure as hell don't have that.

^ Got some on there, any other song ideas? and to HCbkid I love all Blink and listen to them constantly, great idea though.

Beautiful Freak - Eels, Why Does it Always Rain on me? - Travis, Scar Tissue - RHCP, Around the Fur - Deftones, Epic - Faith No More (That could be 80's actually, correct me if I'm wrong), Star****ers - Nine Inch Nails, The Pixies - Where is my Mind (Got to be in there!), Nancy Boy - Placebo, No one Knows - Queens of the Stone Age, Just - Radiohead, Man on the Moon - REM. Yea, Pearl Jam, forgot about them - try Alive or Daughter. Hope they fit the bill for you.

^ They weren't really anything. I just heard the song on youtube a few days ago and it brought back some memories. The band originated from Canada, they've disbanded now and the singer is in some other band.

haha ya i know. but it's had enough lasting impact that they still play it regularly at the big grocery store. that song does bring back memories though.

Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?

uhhh

Scars-Papa Roach?

lol that wuz 2004 sillie

Umm... "I Want You" by Savage Garden belongs on that list. It's more like dance-pop, but it's one of the catchiest songs of the 1990's.

And on that note, "How Bizarre" by OMC.

Ohhh, and by the way - "Little Black Backpack" was by Stroke 9. I know this because I loved that song at one point.
