- The Cure.
- The Smashing Pumpkins.
- Red Hot Chili Peppers.
- Nirvana. In 1991 I was a Junior at the University of Missouri and often walked down to a little bodega called the Lee Street Shop that sold these things sort of like sloppy joes called “Lee Street Burgers” (I wasn’t a vegan back then).
- The Pixies. We generally like music that sounds like music that we already like. Click here for more on that. Prior to the Pixies I listened mainly to classic rock.
- Radiohead. People tend to either love or hate Radiohead. Their music is complex, often noisy with unusual drum syncopation. They are amazing musicians and their music is regarded as very “musical.”
- The Red Hot Chili Peppers. The first time I heard the Red Hot Chili Peppers I was slightly intoxicated at a fraternity party in 1991. I remember thinking “wow, these guys really don’t give a f*ck!”
