Rage Against The Machine (not sure if this qualifies as obvious). Worth reading this too https://www.loudersound.com/features/rage-against-the-machine-debut-album-story
There were a lot of very different types of rock in the 90s, but here’s my slice of it: Pixies Radiohead Slowdive Smashing Pumpkins Dinosaur Jr. Flaming Lips Sonic Youth
Lot of good suggestions here. I’ll throw in Stone Temple Pilots and Korn.
If you want to try and sketch out the range of 90s rock, here’s a nice spread: Reel Big Fish Tool Cake Blind Melon Blues Traveler Tracy Chapman Pantera Alanis Morisette Alice In Chains
Did a quick scan and I don’t think any mentioned Weezer
The Pixies Pavement Radiohead Nine Inch Nails Fugazi Sleater Kinney Sonic Youth Shellac The Jesus Lizard Wilco
Got some great suggestions already but I’ll add Temple of the Dog and The Cranberries. Maybe also Porcupine Tree but a lot of their good stuff is actually 00’s.
The Flaming Lips
Blonde redhead Pixies Pavement Neutral milk hotel
Not mentioned yet: Kyuss, PJ Harvey, Manic Street Preachers Can we have a party with all the music mentioned here?
Letters to Cleo, Juliana Hatfield, Liz Phair, PJ Harvey, Ani DiFranco, Courtney Love, Lemonheads, Built to Spill, Jayhawks, Buffalo Tom, Silver Jews, Matthew Sweet, Golden Smog, Pavement, Dino Jr, REM, Uncle Tupelo, Jane’s Addiction, Porno for Pyros Ah the best era of music 🥰
Gotta start here imho https://youtu.be/GlErvR43eV0
Sunny Day Real Estate
Blind Mellon, The Breeders, Porno for Pyros, Jane’s Addiction, Faith No More
The early Punk-O-Rama compilations were the best way to find underground indie bands. Incidentally, the punk and hardcore bands of the 90’s sound the most relevant today compared to the radio pop counterparts.
Also… with Green Day listen to albums Kerplunk, Dookie and Nimrod in that order.
I’d love to see a tally at the end of this of the top 3 most popular 90s rock bands Farcasters are into!
RIDE! Pj Harvey! Broadcast! Stereolab! My bloody valentine!
Seven Mary Three, Collective Soul, Toadies
