1991 was a strange year for pop music. "Grunge" was in. 80's metal was out. Unless that is you were actually a 70's metal band who happened to influenced a lot of these Seattle upstarts.

Perhaps that is why they are "America's Greatest Rock Band". If you don't agree, go ahead and hit that back button. We don't serve your kind here.
