Art time forgot

Commence initial drunk brilliant blog posting sequence. Engage. I heard this song for the first time since 1996 a couple days ago and it was fucking incredible. I honestly think I bought the cassette single to this song before some bullshit class trip to North Carolina. I don't even remember. But really one of the few songs I've heard from that era that somewhat holds up to music standards of music criticism today.

And when you think about it, it is incredibly sad if you try to list the music acts from the the 90's (formed and released in the 90's) that will actually matter decades from now. I'm talking mainly rock right now, Hip Hop in this 90's was still a relatively young genre that created many influential and currently prominent music careers. But rock, on the other hand, is somewhat depressing:

Rage Against the Machine
Weezer (The fact that this is somewhat questionable hurts my soul)
Jeff Buckley
The Flaming Lips
Nine Inch Nails
Smashing Pumpkins
Seal (Batman Forever Soundtrack bitch!)

And that's about it.... I'm drunk and I don't even know what I'm talking about anymore. I'll leave it to my three best friends to add on/rip me a new one.
