The 1990s was quite a decade musically. It took the world from hair metal through grunge and alt.rock to rap-rock, pop-punk, nu-metal, third-wave ska and a reasonable amount of, 'Well, what the hell is this?'
Cinematically it took us from Terminator 2 to Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, but also did a fine line in low-budget comedy vehicles trying to make TV stars into household names, silly-teenagers-trying-get-laid escapades and really of-the-moment celebrations of slackerdom. These all lent themselves to cameos from rock bands of the time – why hire five extras to mime with instruments when you could get a band on the verge of stardom to do it?
Here is the 1990s in one go. We're not worthy!
