Memory Lane

I was sitting at the dinner table with Sweet Pea the other night and somehow got onto the conversation about "Grunge".  She had never heard the word.  She said she knows about "Hippies" and "Hipsters".  So, we started by talking about the obvious...Seattle, plaid shirts, ripped jeans, and music from the '90s.

This is my very long assorted playlist that I need to make for her (okay...more for myself) of my favorites.  Some of them are there because they are mainstream and she might have heard them, and others are there because they are just awesome!  There's bands that you all probably have heard of, along with some lesser known bands.  This is a very eclectic mix of Alternative Music from the '90s, even including some Christian Alternative.  Sorry....there are no big sellouts like "Sugar Ray", "Chumbawumba", "Hootie", "Citizen King", "Dave Matthews", "The Offspring", "Alanis Morissette", or "Rage Against the Machine".  Not to say that they didn't have their place...I just didn't want them on this list.

In no particular order, my 57 artist list: ( Artist - Song  *commentary is preceded by an asterisk.)
