The 1990s
The 1990s... Was a decade of decadence. A failed attempt to bring back the 60s with the new "grunge" scene and Bill Clinton, instead became an era tainted with sex scandals and an OJ Simpson murder trial.
The 1990s turned out to be a progressive era. A decade that began with the continuum of 1989 big hair Heavy Metal and Metallica's biggest selling CD "Black". The term Hip-Hop finally recognized as a official genre. And SNL's Wayne's World gave us new phrases such as "knarly", "Way?... Waaayy!" and "NOT!".
By October of 1991, Nirvana's Nevermind CD was released, sparking a new life style that would come to peak by the summer of 1993. It was called "grunge". Many alternative rock groups from the Seattle area such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains and Soundgarden began to top charts everywhere. Ladies traded in their mini-skirts for flannel shirts. The baseball cap worn backwards was in.
On April 4th 1994, lead singer of Nirvana, Kurt Cobain shot himself in the head and brought the new wave of second generation "hippies" to a screeching halt with the passing of Woodstock '94. By the end of 1994, Grunge was out, Punk was back in with Green Day and Offspring. Alternative Rock gave birth to Alternative Metal with Limp Biskit and Rage Against The Machine. Rap and Hip-Hop was at its peak on top 40 radio in pop music.


By 1997, The envelope was pushed further to its limits with the birth of Nu-Metal bands as Korn and Slip Knot, setting the stage for the New Wave of  American Metal in the 2000s. Other acts like The Spice Girls, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and The Backstreet Boys filled the airwaves of Top 40 stations everywhere. Since this period, nothing much has changed in the up and coming decade.
