Oh yes, Tonic! I thought they were a one-hit wonder with "you wanted more"! How about:

L7 - Andres

Cowboy Junkies - Sweet Jane

Menswear - Daydreamer

Korn - A.D.I.D.A.S

Ugly kid Joe - cat's in the cradle

Presidents of the USA - dune buggy

Marilyn Manson - lunchbox

Third eye blind - semi-charmed life

Counting crows - Perfect blue buildings

I'm not sure if you wanted solo artists too, but Tori Amos, Alanis Morrisette, Fiona Apple, Eagle-eye Cherry etc were pretty big in that time frame too :D

Check out Stir, a great 90s band that nobody seems to have heard of. They did get some radio play for a couple of songs, including one called New Beginning and one called Climbing the Walls. Excellent songwriting and playing.

'Spaceman' by Babylon Zoo is a great song!! I forgot all about it.

I would add Metallica to this list. They had some great stuff out in the 90's. The Empire Records Soundtrack has some great 90's tunes on it.

I was thinking of adding Metallica to the list too, Katie, but didn't really think they were a 90's band as such. But I only really like their 90's stuff, so hey, there's another one on the list! :thumbsup:

Oh, and Babylon Zoo! Spaceman was great! But it was so wierd the way he thought he was going to take over the world and be the greatest superstar ever in his tinfoil skirt and clingwrap jacket...he was not a well puppy...

Another one of the songs I discovered around last year was 'What I am' by Edie Brickell. And I love it!! I love the feel of the song and the video!

The Seahorses - Happiness is egg-shaped

The Cranberries - twenty one

Spin Doctors - 2 princes

New radicals - get what you give

And of course all the hits by the greatness that was Pulp! :thumbsup:

And Foxy, I believe Tequila was a hit for Terrorvision. Now just to remember why I have the name Stiltskin in my mind??

Stiltskin did "Inside" :rockon:

Yeah yeah, that's the very one! There were quite alot of good acts in the 90's! Certainly an improvement on the stonewashed jeans, whiteboy perms of the 80's hairband rock! :neener: I'm going to get flak for this one, I can just tell! But really, this was the decade I know best and love the most, I honestly still listen to 90% of this stuff and am not tired of it yet!
