The 3 Most Relevant Artists Of The 1990s In 2021 And Beyond

If you’re a 90s kid, you may remember it as a time of incredible musical diversity.

As bands faced growing pressure to do something different to stay ‘relevant’, the genres began to branch out. Where heavier music in the 80s mostly consisted of classic rock’n’roll and punk, now grunge, alternative rock, industrial, and metal came to the fore.

The trend towards the ‘dark and gloomy’ that began in the 80s with gothic rock bands such as Depeche Mode, Joy Division, and Sisters Of Mercy, now took a more dramatic turn with the rise of more ‘extreme’ industrial metal, with artists like Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails arriving on the scene.

However, whereas in the 80s, rock, punk and metal had largely been a subculture built on indie labels that were supported by die-hard fans, in the 90s, heavier music became produced and consumed on a much wider scale.

Rock and heavy metal had become a big business, and it was no longer dismissed as simply ‘music for rebellious teens’. Rock and metal got a new, best double oven electric range 2022  and up to date makeover, as record labels snapped them up and polished them into something more ‘consumable’.

At the same time, pop and experimental music was also on its way up, with electro still big on the scene since the 80s, and underground raves meaning big business.
