Sweet Tunes Thursday: #90smadness

March Madness is in full swing, I guess?

I like sports, but not basketball. Never been my thing.

90s music, however, is totally my thing.

My favorite radio station in the Twin Cities, The Current, is midway through their week-long annual March Music Madness event. This year they’re pitting 90s albums against each other. The results are based on an open public vote (i.e. there’s a high chance Prince will take all), and I’m 99% sure that the staff picks their favorites for the seeds. Either way, I always have fun participating and this year there’s the added bonus of hearing music from a bunch of my favorite albums on the radio all week.

I have never filled out a bracket—for anything—but I did this year because I wanted to see how I’d personally choose between some of my favorite albums (The Colour and Shape vs. Live Through This?! Siamese Dream vs. GooBossanova vs. Odelay!).

In the end, obviously, Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream (even though Mellon Collie is better!) took my bracket.

I’m curious who’s going to win the shebang tomorrow. In reality, I think it’s going to come down to Green Day’s Dookie or Pearl Jam’s Ten and Nirvana’s Nevermind (or maybe Prince’s Love Symbol album because we miss him). DookieTen, and Nevermind are quintessential 90s albums, even though there are so many more on this list (and not included in the list) that I like better.

If this were my game, I’d add:


Which albums would make your 90s March Music Madness bracket? What’s your voting criteria?

Love on ya, chimes
