I liked very (VERY) few bands from the 90's. Alice In Chains (for their awesomely sinister vocal harmonies), and Pearl Jam (at least the first album, Ten, for its no-nonsense rock and roll). Stone Temple Pilots were hit and miss for me. Nirvana? Let's just say their talent really started to shine once Kurt Kobain bit the big one, and they resurfaced as Foo Fighters.
Everything else was just really really depressing.
