    Ive been trying to get back into the 90s music because I believe the 90s was one of the greatest periods in music and definately one of the most influential. What bands do you think were one-hit wonders or just plain forgotten that should have gotten more love and attention? Whos some of your favorite underrated 90s bands?:dude

    I don't know if they're "underrated," but Morphine were killer. Same with PJ Harvey.

    So many great bands mentioned so far in this thread. Brings back a lot of great memories. I guess this means I am getting old.

    Also, I am still kind of amazed that Afghan Whigs were never more successful than they were. It sounded to me like all the elements were in place. What a great band.

    You know, I lived and died for a lot of 90s bands at the time, felt it was a period of major revolution, that we were living through an important historical period in music. I was a HUGE fan of many bands of the era.

    However, I can count the bands from back then, that I still listen to, on one hand:

    Soundgarden (Badmotorfinger and earlier)
    Rage Against The Machine
    Beck (even then, it's his new material)
    PJ Harvey
    Morphine

    The rest of it, well, just gets on my nerves. LOL! :D
