Zen? Oh, I get it..."Zen" sounds like "Then"........(sigh)

1995+

my only lament about 1995+ was that there was no decent artists that broke out on U.S. modern rock radio or MTV... other than Oasis and a few others...

I think things really went down hill with Limp Bizkit and Linkin... everything else in between was more or less hazy memories.

Ok, I dont want to hear about any years other than 1991. This wasnt supposed to be a discussion on what years are good, this is a discussion on how good '91 was.

Don't say it was Rock's greatest year then!

I'm quite fond of 1991 really, my footy team was created!

This list has actually left me speechless... Hall and Oates?... Scorpions? I think I've actually developed a tick, which is impeding my motor functions... I can't even breath... Scorpions?

I'm sorry if this offends you... but really... Scorpions?
If this is a joke, it is the best joke ever.

With a dying breath, I salute in your general direction

Always fun when that 'appens, no, mofo?

I only remember Ten and Achtung from 1991. I was three then, but U2 and Pearl Jam were the first bands I've ever loved since the onset of my teenage years (I've only been seriously liking music for two years, wow), and I was only about three in 1991.

I remember buying a copy of Ten, I cycled to the music store in the bookshop and cycled back. I was so stoked with the album cover (featuring the basketball pullout) and everything. For months and months it was my favourite album ever...then I discovered Yield and later U2.

U2 I'd always seen a bit on MTV but it wasn't until Sunday Bloody Sunday (which I heard at Borders) that I began seriously getting into their music. I think Achtung was the second thing I got by them after the Best of 1980-1990 because I figured I might as well hear their post 90s work. Needless to say I was blown away.

Not quite stories about 1991, but stories about albums from 1991.

I was a freshman in college in 91. Every dorm room was blasting:REM-Out of Time or U2-Achtung Baby or GnR-Illusion Albums or Metallica-Black Album. Eventually you could ad Pearl Jam-Ten and SP-Gish and RHCP-BSSM and Nirvana to that list. Really great year. I'll say the best year ever for rock.

While many of these great albums were released in 1991, they did not get their full exposure until 1992 because most of them were released in late 1991. In fact, for the first 8 months of 1991, most people were lamenting how bad a year it was for rock music because there had been very few releases up to that point. Most of these popular albums released at the end of 1991, sold the bulk of the albums and recieved the bulk of their airplay in 1992, not 1991.

But to play along, my favorite albums released in 1991 are:

Achtung Baby: U2
Metallica: Metallica
Nevermind: Nirvana
Soul Cages: STING
Ten: Pearl Jam
Out Of Time: REM
Temple Of The Dog: Temple Of The Dog
For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge: Van Halen
Waking Up The Neighbours: Bryan Adams
No Place Like Home: Big Country
