Toilet Radio 505 – A Brief History of Alternative Rock


This week on Toilet Radio we watched Underground Inc., a documentary about the forgotten edges of the 90s alternative rock boom. Post-Nevermind, there was an explosion in major label dollars thrown at freaks with guitars hoping for similar success stories. This 2019 documentary helps explore that era with the help of Steve Albini, Sean from White Zombie, guys from Monster Magnet, Queens of the Stone Age, Red Fang, Sepultura, and much much more. We watched and compared notes, matching various Gen X tales told here with other stories from the time. Join as we connect the reign of Guns & Roses to the rise of prime 90s rock, the nadir of post-grunge, and the wave of nu-metal. Folks. It is a good one.
