i'm sort of looking for post-grunge type stuff. someone mentioned blur. it would help if you named the cd you enjoyed also.
• Toadies - Rubberneck
• Third Eye Blind - self-titled & Blue
• Candlebox - selft-titled (technically early 90s, but still an awesome album)
• Silverchair - only bother with Frogstomp, everything else sucks
• Collective Soul - "Whoaaaa, heaven let your light shine down!" Yeah, that was them: Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid
• Foo Fighters - Every goddamn album except In Your Honor
• Our Lady Peace - Clumsy & Naveed are probably the best of this group
• Bush - Anything they released while signed with Trauma
• Filter - Short Bus & Title of Record
• Marcy Playground - whatever album has "Sex and Candy"
• Some early Matchbox 20 (yeah, yeah, call me a fag, but I just don' give a fukkkkkkk)
• Live - Um..everything? if I had to pick one, Throwing Copper
• Harvey Danger - Arguably a one hit wonder, "Flagpole Sitta" is still one of the most well-known tracks from this era. It appeared on Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone?.
• IXNAY ON THE HOMBRE, HOMAY!!! You know who this is, The Offspring. In addition, check out their entire discography.
I think that clears up (most) of the obvious choices. Anyone feel free to add.
Ahhhh, I feel young again. I would add Pearl Jam, but that's not really post-grunge so much as in-the-middle-of grunge.
Hilary walked to her death because she couldn't think of anything to say
Everybody thought that she was boring, so they never listened anyway
Nobody was really saying anything of interest, she fell asleep
She was into S&M and bible studies
Not everyone's cup of tea she would admit to me
Her cup of tea, she would admit to no one
God, they have the worst/best lyrics ever.

Its' called METALLICAOriginally Posted by Pedro-the-Lion
Metallica became superstars in the '90, and were still very popular in the nineties and to this day:Originally Posted by Pedro-the-Lion
The Load era (1995-1999)
Lars Ulrich (2004)After almost three years of touring to support The Black Album, during which time the trek was relabelled the Nowhere Else to Roam Tour, Metallica took a respite until late 1995. On December 13, they recorded during their rehearsal for Lemmy's 50th birthday party; four Motörhead covers were later released as a two-part limited edition CD single. The band spent around a year writing and recording new songs, resulting in Load (1996). At one point during early production, Load was intended to be a double album. Ultimately, it was decided that it would be best to release half of the songs first, and continue to work on the remaining songs and release them the following year. This resulted in the follow up album ReLoad (1997). Some songs written during Load were changed by the time they were recorded for ReLoad; in particular, "Fuel" had different lyrics than the version played during the Load Tour, as evidenced by the version played on the Cunning Stunts concert film (the song was then-titled "Fuel for Fire").
These albums represented a significant musical change for Metallica. The band's breakneck metal tempos and layered guitar compositions had largely been replaced by bluesy guitar tones, slide guitar and shuffle rhythms. Hetfield's vocals took a larger role than ever before, and several songs (such as "Mama Said" and "Low Man's Lyric"), and showed the band's willingness to experiment with varied sounds and instruments. These changes included the use of the steel guitar (commonly used in country music) in "Mama Said" (this is not supported by Kirk Hammett, who in a Guitar Player interview claimed it's not pedal steel guitar on "Load", but an electric guitar processed to emulate one), as well as the use of the hurdy-gurdy and violin in "Low Man's Lyric".
Many of the changes on Load and ReLoad had been anticipated by earlier experiments (especially on The Black Album), but listeners generally regard the two albums as the band's turning point. Sales were lower than sales of the previous three albums. Many songs from Load and ReLoad received extensive radio play, including "Until It Sleeps", "Hero of the Day", "King Nothing", "The Memory Remains", "The Unforgiven II", and "Fuel".
Hetfield noted later in the documentary film Some Kind of Monster that many songs on these two albums were initially thought by the band to be of only average quality, and polished and re-worked repeatedly until judged to be releasable.
By 1996, all of the band members had cut their hair (although Hammett eventually grew it back), which was ridiculed by many, including band friends Alice in Chains, whose edition of MTV's Unplugged featured, on Mike Inez's bass, the words "friends don't let friends get Friends haircuts." Metallica were in the audience for the taping of the show.
In 1998 Metallica compiled a double CD called Garage Inc.. The first CD contained newly recorded covers, ranging from obvious Metallica influences such as The Misfits, Thin Lizzy, Mercyful Fate and Black Sabbath to more unexpected choices like Nick Cave and Bob Seger (the band's cover of Seger's "Turn the Page" garnered extensive radio airplay). The second CD gathered together previously released covers, including the original The $5.98 E.P.: Garage Days Re-Revisited, which had become a scarce collectors' item. The CD also included B-side covers going as far back as 1984.
On March 7, 1999, Metallica were inducted into the San Francisco Walk of Fame. The mayor of San Francisco, Willie Brown, proclaimed the day "Official Metallica Day" in San Francisco. A month later, on April 21-22, 1999, Metallica recorded two performances with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, then conducted by Michael Kamen. Kamen, who had previously worked with Bob Rock on "Nothing Else Matters", approached the band with the idea of pairing Metallica's music with a symphony orchestra. Kamen and his staff composed additional orchestral material for a number of Metallica songs and the concerts featured broad selection of songs dating as far back as Ride the Lightning. Metallica also wrote two brand-new Kamen-scored songs for the event, "No Leaf Clover" and "−Human." The audio recording and concert footage were released later that year as the album/concert film S&M, in November 1999, on CD, VHS, VCD, and DVD.
As to the tempo, I don't see Metallica as depressive if that is what you mean by downbeat.
most of their best stuff/things they are famous for (the black album being the major exception)came out in the 80's and the genre of which they were consistently a part was very 80's. the black album was produced in the very early 90's which were still quite "tainted" with an 80's feel to the music. the pixies for example fall into a similar category
Interesting you should say that. The Pixies were a mojor influence on Cobain from what I hear.
The Black Album is the best Metalica album according to most people and it defined rock before Cobain.
But if you don't like Metallica theree is no point in me changing your mind. I myself am going through a Metallica phase for some reason, No LEaf Clover for some reason resonates with me tremendously.
As to the types of bands you seem to be interested in, you might want to check out BECK, I don't know if anyone mentioned GREENDAY. A band you might not know about is called METRIC, but they are somewhat later, but in the same vein I think.
i was really into that song as well. in general i prefer the performances on S&M to the originals (the accompaniment of the orchestra makes them more intricate). i also own a lot of green day. i am not that big of a punk fan anymore though. perhaps some ska of some sort as i never got into it in the past and could do with a change-up
the only good Metallica was 80s Metallica. from One onward they went steadily downhill. Ride the Lightning, Garage Days, and Master of Puppets! after that it was pretty much pop crap.
some random 90's bands I liked...
Sky Cries Mary
My Life With The Thrill Kill Cult
Social Distortion (kinda 80's though)
*drags out old Primus CDs
All Hail The Flying Spaghetti Monster
Yeah, I'm gonna third Primus there...
Ever heard Mr. Bungle? The singer of Faith No More doing, well, very strange things.
Radiohead - Karma Police
The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony

Have you tried these websites?:
The first lets you put in 3 bands you like, and suggests similar artists, the second one maps out one artist in relation to others. The first one lets you do books, films too.
Also, there's http://rateyourmusic.com/
where you can rate albums out of five stars and it makes recomendations based on your ratings. It's time consuming, but very .
My suggestions would be
Wilco - Summerteeth
Grandaddy - The Sophtware Slump
and also Mogwai - Happy Songs For Happy People , though maybe not that one as its actually quite dark electronic stuff , despite the name
thanks for the recommendation! I was quite skeptical when I was instructed to type the artises I like so as to recommend me other related artises. And I was so surprised that the ones they recommended happen to be the ones I like as well!Originally Posted by Subterranean
