I'll admit it: the alternative era of the '90s produced many of my favorite bands and my favorite songs. This genre and this time period form my musical mecca. Those bands and their moody, brooding tunes are still on almost every playlist I make. I can't help it. I likes what I likes. If you're on a nostalgia kick and you love those angsty alternative beats, too, here's the only list you'll ever need.
1. Hole, “Celebrity Skin”
Say what you will about Hole and Courtney Love, but both the band and its frontwoman made an impact in the alt scene of the 1990s. Hole's discography is actually beyond amazing – there are perhaps better grrrl power bands from the era and the scene, but I've always had a soft spot for both “Celebrity Skin” and “Doll Parts.”
