    third times a charm?

    edit: obviously the title of the poll is suppose to be "favorite 1991 album?" no favoritism here.

    & for the record yes I know Sonic Youth were relevant in 91. I did own Goo & Dirty come the release of Nevermind & much to my elation the SY/Nirvana bond was forged.

    The more I keep thinking about it there were so many damn good albums in 91.
    The Cure released Wish (my fave of the Cure)
    I'm sure the Sugarcubes released something that year.
    Swervedriver released Raise
    Pixies Trompe Le Monde (my fave of the Pixies)
    Dinosaur Jr. Green Mind
    Soundgarden Badmotorfinger
    Rage Against the Machine debut
    RHCP Blood Sugar Sex Magic
    I'm sure I'm missing many more. That was a great year to be 15. I'm glad I was in my teens that year. & thanks dad for taking me & my friends to see the Cure & Sonic Youth that year.

    Nirvana was the one that affected the music scene the most.

    People will argue against this, but it's true. Hair metal reigned supreme on rock radio until Nevermind came in and blew it all to hell.

    They brought alternative music (as it was called then, before indie was really a general term) to the masses & mainstream. Nothing on the charts was evenlly remotely close to what Nirvana sounded like. I get so tired of all the metal gods bitching about how Nirvana dethroned them. When Nirvana came out metal was already dead with the exception of GnR & they were on the way out too. Mainstream music was chock full of R&B groups lame hip hop groups. Exciting things were definately happening in underground rap & hip hop but mainstream music on radio & television was absolutely disgusting. I remember "college radio" music being the term to describe many of the bands we talk about before "alternative" was even a term.

    I even remember 120 minutes "on MTV every sunday from 12 a.m.-2a.m.) had the top "college music radio" hits of the week. It was so awesome to have a generic label for underground music. Now we've got all these sub genres & they all make my head spin sometime trying to determine the correct genre(s). I miss the simple days.

    Smashing Pumpkins - Gish

    In retrospect, arguably their best work. Also Sub Pop's first big release (yes, it was released before Nevermind).

    I went with My Bloody Valentine, though I could have just as easily picked A Tribe Called Quest, Teenage Fanclub or Primal Scream.

    I don't disagree with this. But one could make the argument that GnR softened the enemy positions first.
