The Cat Rocks 18/08/21

1991

Tonight I decided to take a 30 year trip back in time to one of the most significant years in history for rock music.

While Rock these days seems dead in the chart seas of hip-hop, R&B, pop and squeaky crap, three decades ago it was dominant, it was the force for youthful rebellion and culture-moving creativity.

This was the year that Grunge exploded onto the scene, this was the year that a niche Thrash Metal band became a household name.

This was a perfect storm, this was 1991!
