Darlin' Don't You Go And Cut Your Hair

remember the days of Alternative Nation and 120 Minutes when you could still discover new bands on MTV? actually by the time this video came out i was already listening to Pavement, but still it was a pretty cool time in the early 90s for music for about 2 years...and then of course Kurt Cobain offed himself, Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails became all the rage with highschool kids and cooler indie-ish bands like Guided By Voices, Pavement, Sonic Youth, Archers Of Loaf, Superchunk, etc... sorta went back to their indie rock ghetto. i quit growing my hair long and started listening to emo and hardcore bands and the rest was history. here's my list of the top 20 Indie Rock Albums of the 1990s.
