1991: A Great Year in Rock Music

I know we're embarking on a new year, but I figured I'd go back in time to 1991 and remember the great year of music that it brought.
Now, in 1991, I graduated High School. I really started to get into music a few years earlier, but now I was buying CD's on a regular basis. Whenever I'd buy a new CD, I'd go home, listen to it and read the lyrics along with each song. That was my routine. At the start of 1991, my favorite band was Van Halen. I didn't care if it was Sammy or Dave. I loved Eddie Van Halen. But, with so many bands releasing new albums, I started to branch out and listen to other artists. Let's just say, by the end of 1991, Van Halen would no longer be my favorite band.
Now wait a minute, I'll just list some of the albums and you could give feedback if you like. Thanks for indulging me.
Out of Time- REM
Alice in Chains- Facelift
Bad Motorfinger- Soundgarden
Metallica- Metallica
Use Your Illusion I and II- Guns N Roses
Mental Jewelry- Live
No More Tears- Ozzy Osbourne
F.U.C.K.- Van Halen
BloodSugarSexMagic- Red Hot Chilli Peppers
Nevermind- Nirvana
Ten- Pearl Jam
Achtung Baby- U2
By the end of 1991, U2 were easily my favorite band followed closely by Guns N Roses. I still liked Van Halen. Even saw them on their F.U.C.K. tour, but that album would be their last solid one. BTW, Alice In Chains opened for them. Towards the end of 1991, I also saw GNR when Soundgarden opened for them. It was a great time to be 18/19 years old. All of this great new music coming out. I'm also a big Pearl Jam fan, but Alive wasn't popluar until the beginning of 1992. Same thing with Nirvana and Smells Like Teen Spirit. But, I'll never forget the first time I heard Achtung Baby. My friends and I were hanging out playing Sonic the Hedgehog for Sega Genesis. My friend rolled a couple of fatties and we played Sonic while listening to Achtung Baby. From that night on, U2 was my band.

1991 was when I got into U2 and a shit load of other bands as well, including Guns n Roses, REM, Pearl Jam and Metallica. Life was exciting at 13.

1991 was the 1969 of a generation.

Don't forget Michael Jackson's 'Dangerous' record.

i agree that record was one of his best.

it also reminds me of a school friend's funeral though, he died of leukimia and songs from dangerous was played at his funeral.

I agree, Dangerous was the King Of Slop's last good record. Who could forget when his Black or White video debuted after an episode of The Simpson's. The one where Mike grabs himself for 5 minutes. Seriously, though Dangerous was a solid album.

Whether or not it was his last good record depends on whether or not you consider HIStory/Disc 2 a record or not. It's got some great stuff...'Scream', 'They Don't Care About Us', 'Stranger In Moscow', 'Earth Song', 'You Are Not Alone', etc.

Dangerous was his last good complete album. He might've had some new stuff on History, but not a whole album of stuff. The last time I gave a shit about Jacko was 1992.

Not a whole album? The first disc of History was a greatest hits record. The entire second disc was new materal, except for the 'Come Together' cover. 14 new songs.
