One thought on “Random music news for Tuesday, April 4, 2023

  • I feel like a lot of early 90s alt-rock is missing from that “darkest rock album” list. Seemed to be a lot of bands trying to one-up one another at the time for dark disturbing content. I’d put Therapy?’s Troublegum on it. Or Holy Bible by Manic Street Preachers.
