Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice, Paula Abdul, Cathy Dennis, Deee-lite, Moby, Ace of Base, 2 Unlimited, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Boyz II Men, Collective Soul,Alanis Morrisette, Tori Amos, Sarsh Maclachlan, REM, Live, Spice Girls, Hanson, Garth Brooks, Will Smith...this is who I can think of off the top of my head. I hesitated putting down Christina Aguilera, 98 degrees, and other similar clones that are poular now, because they were only popular at the very tail end of the decade. These other artists were around during most or all of the 90s. The biggest musical icons of the 90s, according to me are: Mariah Carey, Garth Brooks, Celine Dion, Will Smith, Kurt Cobain, Sarah Maclachlan, Alanis Morrisette and Tori Amos.

Chumbawamba followed up "Tubthumping" with "Amnesia" which I think is a better song. But those awful songs do get stuck in your head, don'tcha think? And although Billy Ray Cyrus came out with his best record in years last year, it didn't sell because most people still associate him with "Achy Breaky Heart," which puts him in the league of one-hit wonders on the pop charts!

That's right! My local top 40 station played it(Amnesia) maybe a total of 3 times. Yes, I agree, it is better than "Tubthumping", and is the background music on VH1's "Before They Were Rock Stars". Abour Billy Ray Cyrus, "Achy Breaky Heart" was a favotite at the local skating rink. My best friend who listens to nothing but country music, always kept the radio on at night whenever I spent the night at her house, and I would hear that stupid song in my sleep! I can't believe I forgot about that! Oh, here are a few more noteworthy 1990's bands: Green Day, Bjork, Aqua, Backstreet Boys(The only noteworthy boyband, imho), Shawn Colvin, Barenaked Ladies, Jewel, Beck, Luscious Jackson, Hole, Prodigy...

I'll think of more later.
