One thought on “This map perfectly plots the mood range of 90s music

  • I would think NIN would be to the right of Rage. And I’d switch out Pulp for the Afghan Whigs. Weezer, horny? Was Morphine a happy band? I’m not familiar with the music, but I remember when Sandman died and the outpouring of love for him… do I have to go back and listen to their catalog? Veruca Salt, Nada Surf, Bloodhound Gang, Skunk Anansie are all a little to flash-in-the-panny. And of all the 90’s Bloodhound Gang had the pulse on our libido more than anybody else? I guess Manson is cancelled.

    And if I could, I’d slip Dino Jr. right in there between Nirvana and Portishead.
