Return of the 90s Bands

Ahh ... the 90s. The 90s was a great time for music, and many would argue it was THE best time for music. The 90s was the time of Nirvana and the birth of grunge. The time of NYSNC, the Backstreet Boys, 2Pac and many more. For those of you 90s babies that find yourselves dearly missing the music of the 90s, have no fear. Here are two 90s artists that are back and armed with new music that stays true to their 90s musical roots. 

No Doubt:

No Doubt’s first album, the self titled "No Doubt," was released in 1992. Now, exactly 20 years later, the band has stayed true to their 80s synth-pop and 90s ska-punk roots with the release of their sixth studio album "Push and Shove." Take a listen to “Settle Down,” their single that is very reminiscent of their "Tragic Kingdom" album days due to its reggae influence. “Push and Shove” and “One More Summer” are two songs off the album that best showcase No Doubt’s variety too. No Doubt’s playfulness as a party band is evident in the fun, catchy “Push and Shove.” While the clean, harmonic, guitar-heavy “One More Summer” shows off Gwen Stefani’s soulful vocals, it proves exactly why No Doubt has been able to stay around for two decades. 

Green Day:

“Gonna ride the world like a merry go round/like a Ferris Wheel like it's breaking down/drinking angel’s piss gonna crash and burn/I just want some action so gimme my turn,” sings Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong in “Nuclear Family,” the opening song of the ninth and newest album, "Uno!."

“Nuclear Family” and the 11 other tracks off of "Uno!" pay great homage to Green Day’s biggest selling and often the fan-favorite album, 1994’s "Dookie." For Green Day fans who miss songs like “Basket Case” and “Longview” (both of which are off "Dookie"), then "Uno!"’s “Let Yourself Go” and “Angel Blue” are songs that are a must to listen to.

"Uno!" is the first of three new albums Green Day is releasing this year and 2013. "Dos!," the second album in the trilogy, is being released November 13, 2012 ... it's coming up soon! The third and final album in the trilogy, "Tre!" is set to be released January 15, 2013.
