Most of these bands are at best average and are only popular because some were the first of their kind......basically nothing more then innovators that have long been surpassed many times.

Although they don't quite meet the "start date" criteria set up by the OP, I would have to say U2 can't be overlooked- they should at least get an 'honorable mention"....

I will have to disagree with you there mate, for many reasons. Firstly you would be incorrect if stated that Oasis were one of the first indie bands, there were loads of them around, it's just that the music industry was finally signing these types of bands. Again Nirvana were certainly not one of the first indie bands to come out of Seattle, they may have been the first to become world famous, but they certainly were not one of the first of their kind, they were inspired by the hardcore movement, Black Flag etc, it really doesn't get much more indie black flag. I could go on...

I'd be really interested to know who you think may have surpassed the bands mentioned, I mean so far in music today I haven't come across any bands who can touch the bands listed, honestly.....

Great responses by the way!

Keep em coming guys. I think there is a consensus here on a few bands/artists, looks like we need to add:

Pearl Jam

Faith No More (Mike Patton)

Nine Inch Nails

Muse

All music must be measured by "How does it compare to Springsteen?" He is the baseline of great music.

In my humble opinion, the Master Key, to any list concerned with music over the last 25 years is Rick Rubin.



And Radiohead.



In fact I think I need to hear a Rick Rubin produced Radiohead album before I die or I will not feel complete.

Great point, I'm a huge fan of the work he did with Johnny Cash, he knew exactly what to do with him. Really glad you bought him up.

And somehow, Butch Vig may cover anything that Rick Rubin does not...
