Rare Version of Hole: Asking for it, featuring Kurt Cobain's backup vocals. In the Album Version, Kurt's vocals are muted.

I've seen everything except Polish music. I bet You couldn't here it on MTV out there in USA (I know, different language) but just to make mark here, alternative rock in '90 was around the globe.... Just had smaller audience... :)

Hole singing Nirvana's "You Know You're Right", shortly after Kurt's death:


I actually like this version better than the Nirvana studio version.

I know this is pre 1990s , but it’s Alternative- at least that’s what they said at the time .

Alternative started in the post-punk mid 80s, actually earlier than that, I mean think of punk and post punk bands in the 70s (Devo, The Cure, Joy Division, Siouxsie, The Talking Heads, Depeche Mode, The Runaways, etc). It was a stripped-down rejection of the consumerist glam and excess permeating society during that time.

In 2022, with all the government and societal oppression and the ridiculous excesses of the music industry, I think the youth of today are overdue for another wave of punk.

3 kids- A guitar, a bass, and basic drum kit. You don't even need to know how to play. That's how it starts.

I was referring to the Threads post 1990s Alternative. Was not sure if I could post something older . I agree with you in need of another wave of some kind of music with out all the image .

R.E.M. are still alternative despite their major success, right? ;)
Yeah @thesaunderschild the bands don't have to be underground at all. You know, I'm thinking of the bands that played on Mtv Alternative Nation or on the Alternative Radio stations. So, not really underground at all. But if you like a band that was underground, that's fine too. No rules. This is about happy nostalgia.

@Moogwizard the music can be from really any decade. I posted Blister in the Sun, from The Violent Femmes, and I think that came out in 1982. Also, bands like Alice in Chains and Soundgarden had many hits in the 1980s. There's no rules- just fun :)

This was released in the 2000s but the song was made in the 90s.
