Lately I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic. Probably because I’ve been listening to Pandora and specifically loving a mix focused around ‘90s bands that I hold dear to my heart. In my opinion, the ’90s will never end as long as there are things to remind us of how great they were – like Dave Matthews Band tickets and a gaggle of other 90s bands returning to the scene. Thankfully many bands that I knew and loved as a teenager are still around and kicking, as is the case with Dave Matthews, Matchbox Twenty and Green Day. In fact, Dave Matthews Band tickets can be found online for their upcoming shows and if you’re lucky enough, there’ll be a show near you.
Here are some of the most popular ’90s bands that are still touring today and gathering new fans:
Dave Matthews Band
The lyrical genius behind the Dave Matthews Band is still quite powerful. I love how their music is so descriptive, they remind me of poems about sex, desire, ending war and loving each other. Their positive tunes have drawn in millions of dedicated fans and I truly hope they will always been on tour and producing new music. Particularly I hope they have lots of live albums as they are always a favorite of mine!
Green Day technically began in the late ’80s, but they didn’t get really popular until the ’90s. I love them best because they had these amazing rants on politics and consumerism, and they’re still continuing that trend today. Green Day appears at festivals, goes on tour and produces new music on a regular basis which keeps the hungry fans satisfied. In fact, I think one of my favorite tee-shirts in high school was a worn Green Day T from my boyfriend. Oh memories.
In the ’90s, No Doubt brought out an incredible ska-punk sound that fans everywhere fell in love with (along with Gwen’s abs!). The most unsuspecting people enjoyed the music too. They developed a cult following, but then Gwen went solo. She has been active in her music career since then, but now (thank the heavens) No Doubt has been reunited. They have a new album called Push And Shove being released in just a few weeks.
This ’90s band became a popular sensation at the turn of the century, and they are still making music today. Their style is deep, heartfelt and soulful. Actually, I liked them so much in high school that I wrote an entire paper on one of their songs! While they do release lots of new albums their tour schedule leaves something to be desired… maybe that’s how they want to play it though, you know – keeping us wanting more.
His music kicked off in the late ’90s and became a huge sensation in the rap world. One of my most vivid memories from high school is seeing all the guys in my school come in with their hair bleached and pants low slung wearing white tanks – what’s the phrase… “Will the real slim shady please stand up?”As you probably remember “The Real Slim Shady” was one of his most popular songs and most of his other songs sparked a lot of controversy. However that faded away as he took some time out of the spot light. I’m happy he’s back though. Honestly I love his powerful lyrics, sexy voice and no-holds-barred attitude. Some of my favorite workout songs are from his newer albums and I can’t wait for his new stuff to come out!
Red Hot Chili Peppers
This rock band embodies the styles of funk, punk rock and psychedelic rock. Their style is unique and iconic. They are most known for their music in the ’90s, but they are still one of the most popular bands today. They are always putting out something fresh, but they maintain their style and passion. Red Hot Chili Peppers performed at Lollapalooza for the third time in 2012, and it doesn’t look like they are slowing down anytime soon.
Thankfully artists from the ’90s are keeping that decade alive forever as their music allows people to relive the good days and enjoy great music. Many of these bands are eagerly touring again, as can be seen by the prevalence of Dave Matthews Band tickets to shows all across the country.
