My bad. My apathy was such that I wasn't completely informed. This stinks. I hate Micheal Jackson.

fuck jacko.

1991 saw a few other notable releases:

smashing pumpkins - gish (HOLYFUCKINGSHIT)
the wonder stuff - never loved elvis
blur - leisure
primal scream - screamadelica
teenage fanclub - bandwagonesque
ned's atomic dustbin - god fodder
swervedriver - raise

a motherfucker of a year for british music and rock music in general - the seeds of brit pop, the swell of shoegazing climaxing as ride's 'nowhere' and my bloody valentine's 'loveless' peaked after their release a year earlier. didn't dinosaur jr release 'green mind' in 1991 also?
all serving as the backdrop to the calm before the storm that was grunge and the shitstorm that turned out to be the 'alternative music' wave here in the good old usa. don't get me wrong, all that shit is/was the soundtrack to some of my best years, but an awful lot of it doesn't hold up so well. nevertheless, that's a story for another thread...
i was a sophomore/junior in high school, older brother had just left for college, sending tons of new music down the 'pike. what a time for discovering new bands, and for debut records - of the records i just listed, only the wonder stuff's and primal scream's entries weren't debuts (dinosaur jr, too).

1991 was a great year - I was in my last year of high school that year too
I had a decent part time job and spent WAY too much money on cd's and music mags around that time!! Actually, most of the money would have been spent on tapes - I just remembered that i bought my first cd player right at the end of 1991
I remember being the first of my group to hear Smells Like Teen Spirit on JJJ radio here, and telling everyone about it. Nevermind just blew me away!!

Oh to be 18 again!!!

I think I had just gotten my first boom box with a cd player, and I was in my last year of middle school. I was 13.

I remember my best friend at the time bringing over Nirvana on cassette, popping it in and being blown away.

Awesome year for music, indeed.

Yes, it seemed like all of the heavyweights of music put out an album. I remember waiting a long time for GNR's new album(s) to come out. It had been three years since their EP Lies came out and we were all excited for the new material. Finally, the movie Terminator 2 came out in the Summer of '91 which featured You Could Be Mine and we were really pumped. Who'd a thunk that Axl Rose would top himself in later years by making fans wait over a decade for a new GNR album that still hasn't arrived? I guess 1991 marks the last year Axl Rose wasn't a complete asshole.

Finally, someone who was BORN in 1991! I've tried to forget about Desert Storm, though.

It was kind of like beating up a three year old.

Kind of. It was a sad chapter in recent US history. We kicked their asses quickly, but still accomplished nothing. Thank goodness for the great year in music, though.

It's a shame I was only 1 in 1991, as there were so many bands out around then in their prime that I wish I could have seen.
Blur, Nirvana. Argh!

Anyone else out there born in the 90's? Let's corral all of the minors. LOL!
One of my favorite videos from 1991 was Wicked Game by Chris Isaak. This video makes me laugh my ass off, but it's also really cool.

I had the cassette single.

I still have shoeboxes filled with my old cassette singles. Bobby Brown Ghostbusters theme, anyone?

I also have Shakespear's Sister, Stay, which was another great song of 1991 (or was it 1992 ).
