Maybe they should have "classic alternative" radio stations. Playing a Nirvana, Hole, or REM song played next to an AC/DC, Bon Jovi or a Ted Nugent song is just wrong. I remember, as do many of us who were of high school age in the 1990's, the whole point of that alt rock movement was a backlash against the stupidity, cheesyness, sexism, and materialism of the 80's pop music and classic rock.

LOL reminds me of middle school where I would rush home to catch bevis and butthead and these bands would be on during the interludes. man this makes me feel old if 90's music is now considered classic but then again I am 27 now and most of my friends are in their late 20's-early 30's.

I've noticed it since last summer.
The lifeguards where I swim laps put on the radio every morning, and there was both an 80's as well as a 90's play period. First one, then the other.
For me it is a nice break from the 60's-70's hits.

It's about twenty years old now. For some reason, that's when it becomes "classic". I never thought the stuff from the early 80's would be considered "classic" either. That was just what was current as I was growing up.

Now that the kids of the 90's have grown up, advertisers want to appeal to them also, so their decade enters into the "classic" lexicon so they can be marketed to.

i like the 60s and 70s hits,but the radio stations around here insists on not playing the deeper cuts,which are often better,and stick to the commercial stuff all the time.idk how many times I hear kashmir by Led Zep on a daily basis, and yet I never hear misty mountain hop,lemon song, or any of their blues standards.
as far as 9 0s stuff goes,I love the crowes and I love no doubt. I am not a fan of REM,Nirvana,hole,or pearl jam though.
