This thread idea is totally original despite what you might think. I'm definitely not lifting the concept from anywhere. 1991: Nirvana - Nevermind R.E.M. - Out of Time Public Enemy- Apocalypse 1991...The Enemy Strikes Back Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Into the Great Wide Open Soundgarden - Badmotofinger Smashing Pumpkins - GIsh Temple of the Dog - Temple of the Dog RHCP- Blood Sugar Sex Magik Pearl Jam - Ten Tribe Called Quest- Low End Theory Metallica - Metallica Great year IMO, as I love both the early 90s alt rock and hip hop scenes. Bonus question: was your birth year better for albums or movies IYO? For me I say albums easily.
