If you happened to grow up around this same time, and you were into the music that was popular at the time, and/or if you ever watched MTV back in the day (this is when they actually played music videos, not just dumb reality shows), you might recognize a few of -- or all of -- these songs. If not, you'll at least get a glimpse of what I was listening to at that time.
I don't really listen to most of these groups anymore -- a few of them I still like, but don't really buy their music. Some of the bands are no longer around, and some are still going strong. Some band members have long since died, most in tragic circumstances or by their own hands. But here they are nonetheless, preserved in all their grungy glory. Enjoy!
