And yes, I've never heard a Harvey Danger song other than Flagpole Sitta, so that's what I'm basing that on.
So, a post-grunge (era-wise) band is too good for a post-grunge (era-wise) list? Does that mean that bands like The Who and Pink Floyd aren't classic rock bands because they still had success in the 80s?

The list is specifically a list of bands that had big commercial success in a certain era but nothing near it after, a list of bands that are associated by most with a specific 5-7 year period rather than being timeless like Radiohead. I don't know what's so hard to understand.

That makes sense. The only bands I see on there that are even still operational as far as I know are Goo Goo Dolls and BNL.

A pretty nostalgic list for me, not because I liked all this music, but because this was the era I grew up more or less.

I think some of these bands you may not have the best or even most nostalgic songs, but a pretty decent list.

I think Live may deserve a different spot, this particular song was right about the time they were declining. They had some pretty solid albums.

I think you're missing some of the more nostalgic songs from Bush.

I never gave Better Than Ezra a chance during their height, but they wrote some decent songs, one of my favorites is a later song, Overcome.

And Third Eye Blind.

And Harvey Danger until 2006.

Because The Bends is so timeless? Anyway, I guess it's just hard to understand why your arbitrary list of bands that don't sound similar leave out bands that were there at the same time just because they changed a half a decade later into something completely different.

Unless better than Ezra had a song called overcome that I never heard, I think you may have mixed them up with Live. Which I find funny, cos I did the same thing at one point. I was trying to figure out where the hell desperately wanting was on throwing copper...

Man, live were one of my favorite bands at one point, but some of their stuff was awful. I still like pretty much everything up until the distance to here, but I listened to V for the first time in ages (ironically, the one with overcome on it) and most it was just painful. The first three albums, however, were still enjoyable. But yeah, for live you'd want I Alone or Lightning Crashes. Selling the Drama, even.


Post-grunge is stupid, because slapping post- on something to call it a genre is always stupid.

Haha, eve 6. We can also file that under albums I loved when I was 15. I will admit to some huge nostalgia on that one.

It's almost like someone set out to spark a rant from me.
As a bigtime OG fan of so-called "grunge" (I fucking hate that term) I can't tell you how much I loathe some of this music. I mean, I can, and I just might. But I don't want to.

Live definitely doesn't deserve to be on this list.
They were recording Mental Jewelry before Nevermind and Ten were out. But also in general. I mean, that is one fucking dreadful list. I am no mega fan but Live had some pretty good shit. Live and...probably Collective Soul (one of the first real post-grunge bands) are the only bands listed there not worth absolutely burning to the ground.

Yeah, I wouldn't put Live on that list either for the reasons you mentioned.

Well - these bands were more alongside grunge (I didn't get into grunge, so I'm not clear on the timeframe)...

Ride, MBV, Slowdive...well shoegaze in general (which I did get into). Also Spiritualized, Curve, Garbage...

Also, I have zero interest in reliving this music. Fucking dreadful.

Do any of you guys have friends that have pretty much given up on finding new music in the last 10 years? Then you go to their house for a party and they throw on their shitty 90s mix? Man, I hate that
