so i was thinking before, how awesome was alternative rock in the 90s? i mean seriously, i was seeing this girl when i was 16 and she listened to pop i suppose you’d call it – just whatever was played on b105, the local top40 commercial station. a friend of mine pointed me in the direction of triple j, and really, it’s what i should have been listening to all along.

when i was in america, driving from las vegas to the grand canyon in the corvette i hired, it had satellite radio. here we are in good old australia only just now getting digital radio, and i was listening to satellite. i was able to drive the whole way (about 300 miles each way) and listen to the same radio station without any interruptions. the station, lithium, played nothing but 90s alternative rock with no ads! by far the best time i had in america, cruising across the desert beating out all the tunes that pointed me in the direction i’ve taken.

so here’s some of my favourite alt rock tunes from the years that were the 90s.
