Music is forever, subby.

I love Dying Fetus and Behemoth. I would have guessed 20. Thanks Subs, I needed to feel old.

A lot of classic albums released in '91...A lot of the bands they listed are IMHO third rate noise machines
that were just on the edge between classic metal-Nu-metal-death metal...The music industry was starting
to fall off the cliff at this point..Radio station ownership was conglomerating and at the same time was fragmented into a target marketed mess of stations. The music charts did the same thing..They shattered
into a billion little sub charts to the point that nearly everyone had a #1 on some sub-chart..
The Top-40 stations as they had existed for decades disappeared..If you look at the list of songs that
made #1 on the Billboard top 100, the number of songs per year drops dramatically, and the Top 100
chart it's self starts to decay into mostly the same couple of styles of music (instead of a lot of crossovers)
and  now it's stuck that way..Compare a random week Billboard Top 100 from say 1976 to 1996 and
compared how many variations in music (country, ballads,soft rock,hard rock,instrumentals) were on the
charts between them...It's stunning the differences..And yet the big "rally cry" from the "Alternative"
music scene was that  "Corporate" music didn't offer anything for variety...

Dognabbit. "Ten years have gone behind you" again. I think a lot of us lucked out to being alive during the guitar rock era. From the early 60's to the late 80's was a supreme fest of music by musicians. A full group of folk jamming out rather than a produced solo singer with some auto tune.

There's no way to replicate the loose, drug addled, fun that was had in a kind of innocence. Stadium tours where you waited months for that band to show up so you could hold your lighter in the air. Good friggin times. And I'm now going to put on a couple albums and roll a joint. Cheers.

I liked his role as a mod in the Mighty Boosh. That whole crew has done some good and funny sheet.

TIL Cradle of Filth was not just something that Graham Linehan made up.

On another note:  Wow -- that's not how I remember 1991.

Are you really a band if no one has ever heard of you?

For once, a list of metal bands that is mostly actual metal bands...!

Could have done without the Nazi, though. We should let him be forgotten.

Also, Norway represent! 1991 was apparently a good year.

* I'm guessing that's who you meant and my post contradicts your point, but we shouldn't forget who these people are.

Right... lol.  I mean Vikernes looks like he's about to fall over just trying to heft this thing.  Like the 14 year old next door with his QVC battleaxe struggling to keep it upright and oooh he's a scary one he is!

"Rock" ROFL.


Under the "Albums that turn 30" list, not gonna lie, I thought for sure that Metallica: Black and Use Your Illusion were actually older than that. I guess a lot of things happened in a very short period of time for me in my early 20s and a helluva lot has changed for me since then, makes it feel like an eternity ago.

I had the flexi-disk out of White Dwarf magazine for this for ages - finally disappeared one move.  I'd have been more annoyed, but the thing was so thrashed it didn't play well, and I didn't have a turntable anymore anyway:

Counting Crows and Oasis just seem out of place in that list.

I loved the counting crows / dying fetus bootleg. That was my 1996 and my 1997, man.

"failed to succeed"? Yeah, that's the definition of fail. Do you also say a plane crashed from lack of flying?

30 years ago is also about when record companies kicked their efforts to homogenize and mass-market all music into high gear. The effort was there previously but it really took off in the 90s. Frank Zappa was right he was just off by a few years.

It's funny because they put those 2 rock bands that were formed in1991 on list of rock and metal bands that were formed in 1991

Tool formed in 1990 and they won another Grammy last year.

//since "Intolerance"
///almost "OGT from the first EP"
////so glad to be alive while Tool exists
 
2021-01-28 10:04:10 AM  
These are all bands the formed after I stopped listening to new bands.  From the comments so far, this is probably a good thing.

/downside - most of my favorites are disbanded and/or dead.

Round here, we all look the same...

They didn't form that year, but Type O Negative made their first album, "Slow, Deep, and Hard." Which literally made my jaw drop as I'd never heard something like that before. Small town kids were kind of stuck with what we could get our hands on, and my friend found that album. Lucky for me.
 
2021-01-28 11:25:31 AM  
A bunch of those bands I've never heard of, but seeing Acid Bath tickled me. That's one band I used to love playing on the radio.

Go TOOL! I hope they're not finished yet. They probably have a lot of material after that long hiatus.
