What do you think of Stone Temple Pilots? Scott Weiland, the lead singer, died recently. They never seemed to get due respect. Were you a fan of American bands during the early-mid 90s?

Not really.

'Nevermind' was probably the album of the 1990s for me, but the other Nirvana albums failed to scale the same heights.

I found all of those other US rock bands [Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, etc] pretty generic and dull.

I quite liked Metallica's 'Enter Sandman' right up until the shitty, appalling, clichéd cock-rock guitar solo, and Soundgarden's 'Black Hole Sun' was a great song and a pretty well executed piece of psychedelia.

As far as '90s US bands go, I was more into The Pixies, Mr Bungle, Eels, Tortoise and Slint.
