Media Center>Early-mid 90s music suggestions
idrapethat 01:20 PM 09-12-2020
Any 90s kids who find themselves coming back to this music all the time like I do? This thread is just to list albums that aren't incredibly famous like Dirt, Nevermind, Ten, etc...I want to find more obscure gems from this era. Any suggestions?

"Guilty" was playing when they visit the sex dungeon to find the lust victim in Se7en. When Napster was around you could find a lot of esoteric mixes of certain songs. There was a 7+ minute electronic remix of "Guilty" that I really enjoyed, moreso than the original song even, but I've never been able to find it anywhere else again.

A song from '87, but in my saucy state of mind its close enough

Obviously a remake, but this screams pure 90s

Have you seen the documentary "Such Hawks, Such Hounds"?

It's a great view into the 1990's stoner scene and they tell the story of Dopesmoker/Jerusalem. It's mind boggling the whole saga.

The funny thing about Space Lord is that it was the one radio single off that album and it's near the bottom of my list of great tracks on that album.

Monster Magnet is the ultimate sludge shock rock band. This song is on that album.

For instance, Deep gave you a ton of good stuff above, but most of that I'd consider 'big hits.' I like a lot, and love many, but because of that I don't think of them as obscure. Some I'd even consider 'anthems.' Machine Head, The Reason, One Headlight, those are HUGE hits, for my world. I mean, you gotta be pretty lucky to be an obscure band that commands a STADIUM?!?! :-)

If I had to pick three that were what I'd characterize as lesser known from the era that I'm still fond of.

Big Head Todd and the Monsters
Cowboy Junkies
Toy Matinee.
I suppose I'm thinking of songs that haven't been on the radio since they were released. If the whole album is good, even better. Like Alice in chains' tripod album only has one song I recognized, and it was great front to back.

Anything by Kyuss, any of the early Monster Magnet albums. Sleep for sure. The Melvins. Pretty much none of that was ever on the radio.

That gets right up in your face, doesn't it?

Am I wrong to say that I would have believed you if you told me that was a Clutch song?

I guess some of those were later 90s, but I at least tried to stay in the decade. There's some early 2000s stuff I really wanted to put in there too.

Iíve probably played that album more than any other in my life.

People sometimes say "I wish they still made music like this" or "Today's music sucks." I thought the same for a long time until I started looking for good music that hit all the cool 90s grunge/alternative buttons. I'll embed some good ones I've found here:
