Rolling Stone - 40 Best Records of 1994

Post by Bang Jan »

The 40 Best Records From Mainstream Alternative's Greatest Year from April 17th 2014

"At no point between "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Nookie" was the alternative bubble more booming than 1994. A record breaking eight alt-rock albums topped Billboard that year, and Lisa Loeb's "Stay" let alternative nation plant a rare flag atop the singles charts. The Offspring sold more of their indie label record than Pink Floyd did on their major label record. Green Day stole Woodstock '94 from Bob Dylan. New Kids on the Block broke up and Earl Sweatshirt was born. Here's the 40 best albums from the year where the losers finally won." ... r-20140417
