People can try and pretend that part of the '90s didn't exist, but they won't suceed. Like it or not, bands like Creed, Live, Everclear, STP have had just as much influence (if not more) on modern rock as the darlings Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, etc. Rock on!!

Regarding your list of acts that people "wish didn't exist", I have no issue whatsoever w/ acknowledging STP. They put together quite a good catalog during the decade. For my $, the song "And So I Know" off the "Tiny Muisc" album contains the best jazz guitar work by anybody, jazz or no, in the past 30 years. It is so smooth, so melodic, & so genuinely beautiful that it makes me wonder why De Leo never bothered to put out a jazz guitar album on his on.

Gitarzan - "I guess it depends on what you've experienced before then, and what you're comparing it to. Like previous postings have shown, one person's "newest big thing" is another person's "nothing I haven't heard before"."

My favorite band of the 1990s. Do they really fit under Christian Rock? I don't think so. A lot of their songs had some spirituality, but they also made you feel like they didn't believe in religion. I think Ed Kowalcyzk found religion in 2005 or so, which coincided with the band sucking hard, in my opinion of course.

Live will probably be nominated in 2021. They have some RRHOF criteria creating 2 epic albums Mental Jewelry & Throwing Copper. I Alone, Lightning Crashes,Pain Lies On The Riverside, Selling The Drama were Classic songs.

I would put Live's Throwing Copper song for song as one of the best 90's. With Reckless Bryan Adams and Def Leppard Pyromania as a KING FAV. I think Live will be nominated but I don't know if they get inducted.Interesting group. You thought after the powerful Mental Jewelry and the brilliant Throwing Copper that Live was going to be unstoppable. I was in military most of the 90's. Don't know how LIVE was innovative or influential. KING
