Best of 90s Alternative

This music is just some of my favorites from the early 90s, around the time I was in my late teens and early 20s. Hearing it again gives me a chance to introduce some of my old favorites to my kids, who like to hear stories about what I was like before they were born. Hearing these songs transports me to a carefree time and is always the perfect cure for a bad day.
