10/20/2011 . 105.7 the X in Peoria takes a look at ten bands from the 90s that are still rocking hard today. Here is a couple from the list:
10) Korn: Korn became one of “nu-metal’s” premiere bands in the 90′s with the release of their album “Life is Peachy.” the album made it to number one on the Billboard 200 in 1998. they put the west coast rock scene on the map with bands like Deftones, Linkin Park, and Limp Bizkit. Since then, they have sold 16 million albums in the U.S. and 30+ million world-wide, won two Grammy Awards, and had 8 albums go platinum or gold. now in 2011, Jonathan Davis and crew have taken Korn in a slightly different direction. they have teamed up with Dubstep DJ Skrillex and will release “The Path of Totality” on December 6, 2011. it is a hot mess of awesomeness!
6) Pearl Jam: it has been a good run for Pearl Jam, to say the least! This year, the band has been celebrating their 20th anniversary. Considered one of the most influential bands of the decade, Pearl Jam formed in 1990 and hit the music scene with “Ten.” After refusing to make music videos and boycotting Ticketmaster, Rolling Stone described the band as having “spent much of the past decade deliberately tearing apart their own fame” in 2006. but, they have stayed strong, selling nearly 60 million albums to date. the PJ20 documentary and CD are in stores NOW. Check out concert footage at the Alpine Valley on the PJ20 tour with special guest Chris Cornell performing Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike.”
