Since the mention of Spin Doctors took the seal off of the truly terrible category, I present this gem for your "enjoyment":

I love that song. I will probably die alone on a hill defending its greatness. Homer Simpson also did a great cover of it.

Not alone, soldier. I like it too.

The Connells' best song IMO was Over There (late 80s though).

I'm partial to Something to Say.

Thanks; I had forgotten all about that one. Nice listen. More of an REM feel than a lot of their other work.

Definitely a guilty pleasure for me too. :bag:

It always makes me think of EA Sports FIFA soccer as it was the music for the load screen on one of the versions of that game from about ten years ago.

Love the picks. Can't believe the Butthole Surfers lasted this long.

Can't believe the Butthole Surfers lasted this long.

They didn't, really. Were mentioned pages and pages ago.

I will always hate the BHS for no other reason than Gibby Haynes is reportedly the person who got Scott Weiland to take his first hit of heroin. I loved STP and Weiland being a junkie basically killed them.

This also made me recall that the BHS covered the "Underdog" theme on that Saturday Morning Cartoon album that was being talked about a few pages ago.

I did not know that. :angry:

Let's be fair, it was only a matter of time before Weiland got into heroin. It's not like Gibby pulled him out of a church choir to get high.

Couple thought on 90s music, loved it hit me in my 20s, and still sticks with me...

Jamiroquai - Virtual Insanity - cool song, loved his other also, "Canned Heat"

Live put out a great acoustic show, (can't have 90s w/o MTV Unplugged!!)

Questioning whether to post or not but...

Fa Fa - Guster

Guster is one of my favorites, this album "lost and Gone Forever" was 1999, but it has several great songs. Loved how in this era their drummer used bongos and other 'non-stick' drums, made for a different sound. They also have a great acoustic album that came out a couple years ago. New album that came out this year is pretty good.

The Connells' best song IMO was Over There (late 80s though).

I'm partial to Something to Say.

Was a big Connells fan back in the 90s, like Stone Cold Yesterday. Their singer (Doug MacMillan) has such great voice.

Not sure if they count as too popular in the 90s, but Toad the Wet Sprocket were pretty good too. Their guy (Glen Philips) can really sing, too. Remember walking around The Mall during the Clinton innauguration celebration in 93, hearing TWS singing "Hold Her Down"' a great song, although it's about rape.

^ Hoo boy.

Anybody do Reel Big Fish yet? Weren't people "doing the fish" during that Marlins/Indians World Series back in '97?

I mentioned them with "Sell Out" as the song.

Ah, that'll do it. Thought I saw them in here, but forgot where.

MMM MMM MMM MMM Crash Test Dummies.

Actually had a big hit with "Superman's Song" in Canada a few years earlier.

Made several albums after God Shuffled His Feet with some very good material.

Brad Roberts is still touring part time.
