One year shy of legal drinking!
1991 must have been an incredible year for music (I wouldn’t know, I wasn’t born yet!). Many remember 1991 simply as the year Nirvana released Nevermind, which ended hair metal and began a grunge movement that bands today are still taking inspiration from. As important as that album would become, there were many other albums released in 1991 that were just as good, if not better, than Nevermind. For the 20th anniversary of the great year that was 1991 (it was also the year Silence of the Lambs came out!) let’s take a walk down memory lane and see what music was released.
Soundgarden – Badmoterfinger
Pearl Jam – Ten
Stevie Ray Vaughan – The Sky Is Crying
Guns N’ Roses – Use Your Illusions I and II
U2 – Achtung Baby
B.B. King – Live at the Apollo
Nirvana – Nevermind
My Bloody Valentine – Loveless
Teenage Fanclub – Bandwagonesque
Metallica – Metallica (The Black Album)
Red Hot Chili Peppers – Blood Sugar Sex Magik
Blur – Leisure
The inspiration for this post came from an article from Guitar World, check out that article here.
