Similar to Kyuss's role in the field of stoner metal, Uncle Tupelo was a band that basically set the standard for a modern genre (alt-country) and then splintered into different groups exploring similar territory (Wilco and Son Volt, each excellent in its own right). To avoid confusion, I'm not giving them credit for the entirety of the genre, but they were and are heavily influential on the way it sounds today and for the past decade.

This is one of my favorite bands. They were shortlived, but all four of their albums are distinct and excellent. William is correct, they were one of the most influential bands on that genre today.

Uncle Tupelo was simply one of the finest bands on the 1990s.

Uncle Tupelo were wildly talented and productive. They were alt-country. Their music was influential on a whole generation of alt-country and americana artists, and their talent is shown not only in their work, but the work of the splinters of the band who still continue to make great music today.
