It Smells Like The 90s

Recommended Posts

Even though Alice In Chains' "Nutshell" is a depressing song, it's still 1 of my favorite songs by them.

I don't know who else outside of Toonami fans watches the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure franchise, but I am reeling over the fact, that the ending theme song for Diamond Is Unbreakable is Savage Garden's "I Want You." Like seriously?

How the hell does that song fit that season, which is supposed to focus on Suburban Horror during 1999? Out of all the songs by bands that existed during the '90s, they picked "I Want You" by Savage Garden? C'mon!

It's bad enough that the opening theme song has cheesy-sounding, 1970's porno music. Then, they fuck it up the tone of the season with Savage Garden.

If they weren't going to choose a dark and ominous song by a singer or band from the '90s (especially when some characters are named after them), to help set the tone of the season, they could've at least chosen something more angsty and aggressive.

Here's another Fear Factory song from the late '90s. This is that type of song that will make some of us burst out singing without realizing it, until after the fact. Or maybe it's just me.:$

This was originally released on the Sliver Soundtrack. I still have yet to sit and watch that movie. Sharon Stone was also featured in this song.

This performance not only made me a fan of the Smashing Pumpkins but it also made a fan of rock/metal music overall

If I didn't have to run around like a chicken with its head cut off so much offline, I would post more in this thread. Also, I'm in the middle of working on a Q&A. I guess I will add a few more songs here.

The only reason why "The Crabulouse" became more popular during the early 2000's than in 1994 was because of that Sucker Punch movie. For the soundtrack, they released the instrumental version of "The Crabulouse."

Spoiler

 

 

Gotta appreciate Underworld's "Push Upstairs" for the beat.

I like Garbage. I was talking about songs by Sarah McLachlan like "I Will Remember You" (which I had to sing with my Choir Class, during our high school graduation) and "Eyes Of An Angel."

Movies and shows playing her songs during incredibly sad scenes make them all sad for me now. It was years before I could listen to "Full of Grace" used during a Buffy season finale when she left Sunnydale without crying. I actually really like Possession because its tone was darker than most of her other songs. That made me curious about it and after googling it, I saw why the lyrics had a creepy feel to them.
