Two giant seismic shifts occured in 1992, one that would change the rock world forever, and one that would change the Country world in ways that are still being felt today.
Movie theme songs and soundtrack hits made there mark in 1993, as they would for the rest of the decade, but hip-hop, rock, pop and a hit that was already 6 years old made their marks on the charts.
Rock & Roll called itself grunge. It was a bit dark and dystopian, but it was still rock & roll. To off-set all of the bumming, pop music did its best to present a sunny side, even pulling out some old favorites from the previous two decades.
1995 - Music was all over the place, specifically the pop charts. Jam bands, gangster rap, lite pop, and a bunch of other stuff found room on our mixtapes and favorite radio shows. The mid-90s were a time when genre didn't matter as much as good music did.
<The year was marked by a dance hit that spawned a thousand imitators (Gangnam Style anyone?) outshined the last gasps of the Classic Rock and Blues derived mainstream hit.
