Can someone please send the OP a Stern "where's the code" t shirt.
Tell him to wear it with pride!

Quoted from HughesDForce:

This list is head and shoulders above the 90's list though.
I think the real point is that using the pop charts and only looking at the top sellers isn't a very accurate way of describing a decade. Even if Billy Ray Cyrus sold more copies in 1992, "Nevermind" and "Ten" came out that year, and both are far more culturally relevant than "Some Gave All".

I wholeheartedly disagree with the first half of the statement.

And I emphatically agree with the second half. The Nevermind album was a game changer-- it's the single most important album of the 90s. It simultaneously killed "hair band" music, and sent the industry flying headlong into an entirely new genre.

Best post of this thread so far. You can't think of the 90s without thinking of grunge. And the band that changed it all was Narvana.

Hard to argue. And I really really dont' like Nirvana. Their breakthrough brought Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, STP, a lot of other bands which are still relevant to the forefront. Yikes. And I just noticed that 3 of those 4 have lost their frontmen. War is hell, so is getting old. Yet another reason Alice is a hero of mine. (BAM! Made my post relevant )

Alice In Chains is the BEST

Nothing killed hair bands. Grunge bands are mostly gone, but Steel Panther is alive and well!

lol

Maybe they weren't "killed" but even those bands admit they were completely stonewalled after that. They've since returned, but it did take a LOOOONG. Time. Or maybe it was the release of decline 2 that did it. Those record execs saw it and realised they were giving all that money producing records for a bunch of morons!! Lol, just watched that again a couple days ago .. omg horrifying. At least Alice and Megadeth are in it, however briefly.

And yet pinball is still stuck in the hair band era music wise.

The 90s were great. As the grunge movement started, culture itself underwent a change. The homogenized 80s were over finally. Pinball was paying tribute to that culture as it happened. In 1994 pinball paid tribute to one of the dying bands that had been so relevant just a few years before.

I want an Alice Cooper pin, just like I wanted a Rob Zombie pin, but then I played Rob Zombie and I thought to myself........I guess I don't really want a Rob Zombie pin.

Alice with Cattle Decap this fall.

Probably so... radio liked it, it got overplayed, but it apparently had no lasting effect for me because I just realized I never bothered to rip my personal copy of it into my playlist, so it's been at least 15 years since I've thought about the album. Alice In Chains' masterpiece "Dirt" came out a year before "Nevermind", and it remains one of my favorite albums to date.

Back to Alice, the dude is legendary, man. He has, or has had, one of the most theatrical stage acts in all of music, not just rock. At it for over 50 years.

People are questioning his qualifications to have a pin made commemorating him and his music & act? At the same time in another thread otherwise intelligent men are fawning over the idea of an imaginary Slayer pin from Stern with Zombie Yeti art?

Did you ever try listening to Slayer? Yikes. Energetic would be the understatement of the century. Might actually make good pin music, kind of like how they used Bad Religion and the Offspring for the arcade Crazy Taxi. But as the game's theme? Why?

I find it disrespectful to not even capitalize Mr. (presumably) Cooper's last name in the thread title. If OP didn't do that on purpose to that end, I think he ought to fix it.

Alice is a living legend that makes music on his own terms. And re-invented the stage show.

Agreed. The first page alone makes me cringe. If anyone wants to open a serious/constructive/interesting thread discussing Alice Cooper as a pinball theme, go ahead. This thread has run its course.
