    I like KMFDM but I'm not a super fan or anything.

    Metal fans generally seem open to crossovers with other genres except rap and nu metal was popular for a bit.

    Alice in Chains blues influence for example. Pop and folk metal is also a thing.

    Classical has influenced metal and some things like 1812 Overture a metal fan might like.

    And Rick as well, when I was a teenager in the 90s it was the metal heads who also listened to the older stuff and even beatles.

    Most of the good modern metal is coming out of Europe. Eluvietie,Korpiklaani, Epica, Lacuna Coil (since 2000 for me), Night wish etc all listenable.

    Every Ace of Base song sounded exactly the same.

    Money is my favorite album, but was pretty commercial for them. The title track and We Must Awaken I've always enjoyed:

    They banned that by request here.

    Nah, they had more hits... "All that she wants" and "Cruel Summer" being just two examples.

    I'm honestly not sure what this sentence is even supposed to mean. Also, my interpretation of "Objectivist" is different than that of Ayn Rand, an individual I'm barely even familiarized with. I have concocted my own criteria when I identify myself with the term/label. Although, sometimes it might happen to agree with that of Ayn Rand. Perhaps this is one of those times.

    hit too close to home, I assume? :p

    maybe if you're a dadrock-conditioned radio victim then yeah. but as someone who grew up in that time, you just wouldn't understand because you lack the.. experience. you know, it was kinda like beatlemania if you've ever heard of that. you just had to have been there, and been young, otherwise you don't really know what you're talking aboutr, do you? ;)

    Magnetic Fields are pretty great, I agree!
    but have you heard any of the seminal 90s albums I listed here or are you just judging an entire decade based on radio play?

    While wasteland is strong, and it's much of the music of my youth, a lot of 90s stuff did just suck. I'm going to be very ready to go by the time the 90s reboot finally dies in 8 to 10 years. Grunge and NIN and Nirvana, ungh. Perfect mood music for realizing you just don't want to do any of this anymore. Next, please.

    Low Self-Esteem may grate, but it has a great line: "The more you suffer, the more it shows you really care!"

    I quote it frequently, and man does it cause dissonance in people. Sure, about 50% of people I say it to recognize that it's a lyric, and then immediately know I'm being sardonic. But the other 50%? Wow, it causes them to squirm.

    Shout out to KMFDM for making the Chun Li vs. Vega fight one of the most memorable cartoon fights of my childhood. Well, that and the fact that the fight itself was quite awesome.

    I'm noticing how many songs here are disliked for being 'stupid', but were just honestly 'experimental'. I thought the thread was won with 'Macerana' though.

    When I was a wee child I used to think the lyrics to Loser were
    Waaaah
    I live in Canadaaa
    (I'm a loser baby)
    So why don't you kill me.

    I would leave out the loser baby part in the middle.

    Next '90s genre I liked: Neo-folk (alternative folk; indie singer-songwriter; lo-fi)

    Cat Power - Moon Pix (1998) - "Cross Bones Style"



    Others: Elliott Smith; Liz Phair; Beth Orton; Ani DiFranco; Billy Bragg. Tori Amos? maybe Tori Amos. I wouldn't object to throwing 'shoegaze' in here too, Belle & Sebastian, The Magnetic Fields.
