17 best musical groups of the 90s

The best groups of the 90s that showed that rock was not dead


17 best musical groups of the 90s

When talking about groups of the 90s it is impossible to mention just one. Although thousands of people claim that only Nirvana was the most important band of the time or that britpop was the only relevant genre, there are other great groups and styles that completely changed the direction of music in a time when everything seemed lost .

Thousands of people sang the choruses of those great musicians to forget the superficial past of the 80s. The young people needed to lose themselves in hymns to forget that the world slowly degenerated and some of the great musicians of history facilitated that escape.

In the 90s, President Bush began the Gulf War; Hundreds of thousands of inhabitants of Rwanda died in one of the most violent genocides in history and the world went through different crises. Meanwhile, everyone decided to lose themselves in the fantasies offered by their televisions to lament the death of Princess Diana or watch the trial of O.J. Simpson.
It was necessary that paths be born to escape from this reality.

Under that chaotic context, it was inevitable that some groups began to create music and change the paradigms of the industry forever. Inspired by the madness of their environment or their own problems, they took it upon themselves to give voice to a generation that nobody wanted to hear.

Based on the above, we list some of the best groups of the 90s and explain why their relevance made them become icons of a lost era, but hopeful.

From England, to E.U. and Mexico, these are the bands that made us believe again in rock and in the world:


Oasis
nirvana

Year and place of birth: 1991. Manchester, England.

They changed the story because: They became one of the best selling indie bands in history. They rescued the sound of classic stadium rock. The hopeful poetry of Noel Gallagher mixed with the voice of his brother Liam, redefined the concept of musical hymns and paved the way for more independent artists could find success.

Artists who take their influence: Jake Bugg, The Verve and Declan McKenna.

Best album: "What's the Story? (Morning Glory)" (1995).


Blur
Oasis

Year and place of birth: 1988. London, England

They changed the story because: They were another of the bands that changed the indie rock. They took the position of leaders of the so-called "britpop" and managed to synthesize in a few albums the musical history of the United Kingdom, from the traditional ballads that are sung in pubs, to the tropical sounds popularized by The Stone Roses and the Happy Mondays at the end of the 80

Artists who take their influence: Alvvays, The Drums and SALES.

Best album: "Parklife" (1994).

Radiohead
Radiohead

Year and place of birth: 1985. Oxfordshire, England.

They changed the story because: They took advantage of the wave of recognized independent bands without focusing on pop. Radiohead became the experimental band par excellence. All their songs are composed in the classical style and are transferred to the modern context thanks to the genius of the five musicians. To date they are still considered the best in history.

Artists who take their influence: Alt-J, Tame Impala and Muse.

Best album: "OK Computer" (1997).

Pulp
Green Day

Year and place of birth: 1978. Sheffield, England.

They changed the story because: Although it was active since the end of the 70s, they found success along with the rest of the independent bands recognized in England. Pulp had different elements to Oasis or Blur. His pop was not completely accessible to the masses, but hypnotized the fans of the less recognized scenes. It became a cult band whose music came to the world through film and great artists who called them one of their strongest influences.

Artists who take their influence: Arctic Monkeys, The Rascals and M.I.A

Best album: "Different Class" (1995).

Suede
Daft Punk

Year and place of birth: 1989. London, England.

They changed the story because: They found a way to distance themselves from the britpop scene and mix the brightness of the music with the dirt and perversion of the teenagers at that time. They delivered more complex sounds than Oasis without creating stadium anthems. His lyrics explored more personal sides and revealed internal pains that resembled more the grunge depressing mentality, without forgetting to dance and spin until the music ends.

Artists who take their influence: Bloc Party, Dum Dum Girls and The Libertines.

Best album: "Suede" (1993).

The Chemical Brothers
17 best musical groups of the 90s

Year and place of birth: 1989. Manchester, England.

They changed the story because: They were responsible for showing that electronic music could be linked with other alternative genres. At that time in which the "analogous" musicians still showed reluctance to the plastic sounds that techno offered, The Chemical Brothers delivered unusual, complex and noisy music to get lost among the beats. They mixed real instruments with their samples and served as the perfect example for all young people who wanted to create songs from their computer.

Artists who take their influence: Daft Punk, The Dust Brothers and Four Tet.

Best album: "Exit Planet Dust" (1995).

Zurdok
nirvana

Year and place of birth: 1993. Monterrey, Nuevo León.

They changed the story because: No other Mexican band sounded like Zurdok. At a time when the scene was dominated by Café Tacvba and Caifanes, who dedicated themselves to creating music with Latin roots, the quartet of Nuevo León decided to move away from that and focus on taking international sounds to another level. Their last works defined them as pioneers ahead of their time and although their little follow-up led them to separate, their brand is permanent and remember that not everything that leaves Mexico has to sound Latin.

Artists who take their influence: Porter, Austin TV and Ely Guerra.

Best album: "Hombre Sintetizador" (1999).

Jumbo
Oasis
Year and place of birth: 1997. Monterrey, Nuevo León.

They changed the story because: They were also part of the nickname "Advanced Regia" that dominated Mexico in the late 2000s and showed that the North was the birthplace of the best rock that had existed in the country. Jumbo, like Zurdok, brought to the national context the sounds that were produced around the world. Taking influences from Blur, Pulp, Suede and more britpop bands, they created happy and clean hits that showed that Mexican music could be better than what the mainstream taught.

Artists who take their influence: Delux, Los Claxons and Tiny Division.

Best album: "Restaurant" (1999).

The Smashing Pumpkins

Year and place of birth: 1988. Illinois, United States.

They changed the story because: It was the most ambitious band in the United States during the 90s, so much so that they found their decline too fast, but their brand was never erased from the history books. The Smashing took indie elements from the 80s like shoegaze, gothic rock and dream pop to mix them and create almost epic sounds as Queen had done. His music invited to get lost in the teenage dream of the leader Billy Corgan and they became a sweet element dispensable that perfectly contrasted the rudeness and hatred of grunge.

Artists who take their influence: My Chemical Romance, Of Montreal and Broken Social Scene.

Best album: "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness" (1995).

Garbage
Radiohead

Year and place of birth: 1993. Wisconsin, United States.

They changed the story because: Their first self-titled album was considered one of the most innovative and revolutionary works of the time. The band experimented with power pop melodies that changed the musical current of the decade, going from rough grunge to softer harmonies, without neglecting the lyrics that spoke about decadence and loneliness.

Artists who take their influence: Shilpa Ray, Grimes and Smashing Pumpkins.

Best album: "Garbage" (1995)

Nirvana
Green Day

Year and place of birth: 1987. Washington, United States.
They changed the story because: They were leaders of the grunge movement in the United States and Kurt Cobain is still seen as the most important composer of the decade in that country. The band came as a breath of fresh air after glam rock took over the charts at the end of the 80s with superficial and absurd melodies. Their songs were political, controversial and showed a darker side of American youth that had been hidden since the time of punk.

Artists who take their influence: Courtney Barnett, Stone Temple Pilots and Nine Inch Nails.

Best album: "Nevermind" (1991).

Stone Temple Pilots
Daft Punk

Year and place of birth: 1989. California, United States.

They changed the story because: No matter that they were originally from San Diego -one of the most superficial places on the planet-, the Stone Temple Pilots served as the voice that signaled the banal nature of the entertainment world. With ironic lyrics that spoke about eternal love, human hypocrisy and decadence, they managed to separate themselves from the grunge scene showing that violent music could have more complex and harmonic nuances.

Artists who take their influence: Pearl Jam, Linkin Park and Smashing Pumpkins.

Best album: "Purple" (1994).

Green Day
17 best musical groups of the 90s

Year and place of birth: 1986. California, United States.

They changed the story because: They showed that punk was not dead, but that it needed to evolve to stay current in the world of music. His first works perfectly mixed the fast and heartrending sound of The Ramones with pop melodies inspired by the great bands of the 80s, resulting in some of the best works of the decade. The rebel trio continues to reap successes thanks to their unusual talent for creating unforgettable hymns.

Artists who take their influence: Blink 182, The Offspring and Rancid.

Best album: "Dookie" (1994).

Weezer
nirvana

Year and place of birth: 1992. California, United States.

They changed the story because: Despite arriving at the mainstream scene with a pop theme ('Buddy Holly'), in a short time they proved that not only were they the plastic band that everyone thought, but behind the glasses and the nerdy attitude bigger ideas His album "Pinkerton" broke paradigms and was misunderstood by critics, however, inspired an entire generation to create harmonic melodies by mixing them with immense distortions to talk about love. Despite their failures they have never ceased to amaze and remind us that rock / pop does exist and that they are the best example of the genre.

Artists who take their influence: Charli XCX, Real Estate and DNCE.

Best album: "Pinkerton" (1996).

Pixies
Oasis

Year and place of birth: 1986. Massachusetts, United States.

They changed the story because: They had a similar story to The Velvet Underground; Despite being largely ignored by their critics, they inspired great bands to follow their example and mix pop melodies with alternative compositions. His experimentation created some of the most important themes of the time such as 'Hey', 'Where Is my Mind?' and 'Here Comes Your Man', which showed that not only Madonna could compete for a first place in the popularity charts, but any independent band with the right style.

Artists who take their influence: Nirvana, The Strokes, Arcade Fire, Blur, Radiohead, PJ Harvey and Alice in Chains.

Best album: "Doolittle" (1989)

Daft Punk
Radiohead

Year and place of birth: 1993. Paris, France.
They changed the story because: They became the most important duo of electronic music without the need to launch new productions every year. Their precise way of working and collaborating with the best creatives on the scene quickly established them as the talents of the future of music. Although in recent years its importance has been reduced by its work in the pop scene, its past as pioneers of house and techno inspired an entire generation to believe in these new ways of creating music without getting too far from the rock.

Artists who take their influence: The Chemical Brothers, Jamiroquai and Kanye West.

Best album: "Homework" (1997).




Music will always serve as an escape from reality or as a means to face it. The groups on this list taught to do it in multiple ways and gave the world works that will become classics in the history of music forever. The legacy they leave is similar to that of other important groups in the past and, although some have already disappeared, their spirit will remain in the ears of people. Regardless of which times pass, the effect of the songs never changes.
That is the magic of music.
