    Guns 'n' Roses and Metallica were both at their best in the 80s.
    My Bloody Valentine, for the win.

    meh I'd consider the Pixies more of an 80s band considering Surfer Rosa and Doolittle came out in the 80s.

    Radiohead
    Flaming Lips
    Smashing Pumpkins
    Nirvana
    Beck
    Bjork
    Outkast
    Pavement
    Weezer
    Red Hot Chili Peppers

    Everything Metallica did in the 90's was crap.

    My favorites out of the ones listed are AIC, Nirvana, PEARL JAM, Radiohead Soundgarden, STP and Tool. However I also

    My vote goes to PJ

    Other notables (most better than what the current options) include: Butthole Surfers, Blur, Massive Attack, Beck, MBV, Portishead, Primus and Garth Brooks

    I agree, but some would argue that Use Your Illusion and the Black Album were their best works.

    The first five REM albums were great.

    Everything subsequent to those blew.

    Why are GnR on this list? What did the 90's consist of for them? Lies about Chinese Democracy?

    Radiohead/U2/Nirvana

    If we're considering solo artists, then PJ Harvey too.

    G N' R put out four studio albums.

    Three of them came out in the 90's. Whether you consider them good or not is a different matter.

    I'm kinda shocked by the lack of Nirvana love so far. I mean, even if you don't like them, you have to respect what an essential part of 90s music they were.

    I actually agree with your assertion (and 5 is exactly the right number), and have said so at some length on the old board (where I said that Green was the most disappointing album of all time). But most don't see it that way, and people drooled over Automatic for the People and other 90s output more than the 80s stuff.

    Yeah, I never got that.

    I was a huge REM fan up until "Document", I guess I just didn't like their sound anymore after that.

    I think the fact that they weren't "college" anymore also made them less attractive to me at the time (musical snobbery at its finest).

    "Life's Rich Pageant" is one the great underrated albums of the 80's, though.

    And, yeah, good call Pot.
    REM were much better in the 80s, but Automatic for the People is a fantastic album.

    I'm voting NIN since Radiohead is not in the poll...... But yeah Radiohead is up there Nirvana also. Foo Fighters end up being a huge biproduct of Nirvanas destruction of course.
