    It was 30 years ago today

    I was almost 20 and all these albums had an influence ( although I never liked Soundgarden, you couldnt escape it) I can stil l quote lyrics from memory from the 1st 2

    Back in the day when I was barely a teenager...

    Nirvana’s Nevermind,
    A Tribe Called Quest’s The Low End Theory,
    Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Blood Sugar Sex Magik,
    the Pixies’ Trompe le Monde,
    Soundgarden’s Badmotorfinger,

    1991 was a banner year for rock releases.

    Stern has done a great job the last few weeks talking about all the albums to come out within months of each other that year. My favorite music is still from that time frame.

    I was at Lalapalooza in 92. Stellar line up. By far the best concert Iíve ever been at.

    I missed out on Ď92 because I didnít buy tickets early enough. The original tour in 1991 never sold out (at least at my stop), so I didnít think it would be an issue. Then grunge blowed up.

    RHCP, Nirvana, and PJ on that NYE at the Cow Palace was an epic night. I wish I could remember more of it

    Exact same thing here. Still joke about how we had to sneak into it in 1992 (climbed a tree onto the bridge at SPAC) as we thought tickets would be available at the door like in 1991.

    ill never forget walking into the aragon brawl room for pj, smashing pumkins and rhcp as all the chairs were being piled in the back
    feeling the energy knowing the place was gonna go next level mosh on
    I did all the og lalapolazas but theres no way an outdoor all day show held the energy of that night.

    Things were changing fast.

    It was so different

    A childhood of family trouble and organized sports and Reagan and 80s stuff quickly transitioning to that pnw sound and skiing and mountain biking and time and space to my own. The shift in the culture dovetailed big changes in my self and my life. Like a cool front blowing the stale hot gross smog away.

    I had the Cypress Hill debut on bootleg cassette many, many months before it dropped. I would play it on my rap show on 91.3 fm KCPR before the official album dropped.
    I may still have it somewhere...

    All apologies to Nirvana, but this post caused me to delve deeper into 1991 and daaaaaaaaamn, it was a great year for rap. So many amazing and influencual rap albums were released that year--many of which I still heavily spin today--that I feel it ain't too hyperbolic to deem it one of the greatest years ever for rap music...

    I already listed a few in Post #20 above, but here are some that came out earlier in 1991:

    Gang Starr - Step in the Arena
    3rd Bass - Derelicts of Dialect
    Ice-T - O.G. Original Gangster
    NWA - Efil4zaggin
    Poor Righteous Teachers - Pure Poverty
    Downtown Science - Downtown Science
    De La Soul - De La Soul Is Dead
    Dream Warriors - And Now The Legacy Begins
    Main Source - Breaking Atoms
    Get Boys - We Can't Be Stopped
    Ice Cube - Death Certificate...(Not that you care, but I wrote my undergrad thesis on Ice Cube: "From Gangsta to 5 Percenter: A Rhetorical Analysis of Ice Cube.")
    DJ Quik - Quik Is The Name
    Ed O.G. and Da Bulldogs - Life of a Kid in the Ghetto
    KMD - Mr. Hood
    Compton's Most Wanted - Straight Checkin' 'Em
    WC & The MAAD Circle - Ain't A Damn Thang Changed
