Best of the 90s: Music

So far I've shared with you my favourite 90s TV shows as well as my favourite 90s fashion. And today I'm back with some more wonders from the 90s, and this time it's all about music. I don't think a lot of people really consider the 90s a particularly revolutionary decade for music, but if you look past Boyzone and the Spice Girls, there's a lot of great musicians that came onto the scene in the 90s, many of whom I still listen to today! And what better to listen to them all on than a walkman?! 

The Red Hot Chili Peppers

I remember my brother getting his first ever guitar when we were younger and then listening to a lot of Red Hot Chili Peppers after that. (He's an amazing player now - check him out on sound cloud!) Anyway, I find the Red Hot Chili Peppers are a great band to listen to in the car with the windows rolled down on a hot sunny day. Is that lame? 


Couldn't really do a whole post on 90s music and not include Nirvana, could I?


Everyone has their favourite Gallagher brother, and mine's gotta be Noel, the brains behind the band! I really like his new band Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, too, and one of my best friends sang as a backing singer at one of their gigs a while ago. Cool huh?! Oasis seem to possess a very laid back 'I don't care about anything' vibe and I have to say, I really dig it.   

Foo Fighters

Dave Grohl making a second appearance in this post, what a great guy. The Foo Fighters are up there as one of my favourite bands, and was I jealous last summer when my brother saw them at Reading festival? No... of course not...

Goo Goo Dolls

oh yeah and I was listening to Iris way before it was 'cool'.

If you've read this post thinking 'you were born in 1992, there's no way you were actually listening to these bands in the 90s' you are correct. It was my older brother who (probably unknowingly) got me listening to these bands when we were younger, but it wasn't until I was a teenager when I developed more of an interest in music anyway. So at 8 years old I was not headbanging to the Foo Fighters, but I definitely am now. All thanks to my favourite decade for spewing out some really great music! 

Obviously I've missed a lot of bands out of this post because, well I'm only human. So leave me a comment with some of your favourite 90s music!
