"when flannel and funny hats still meant something"
For a while now I've been getting into more and more grunge music. My friend recently introduced me to a band called "Temple of the Dog." Their self-titled (and only) cd released in 1991 is one of the greatest albums from the 90's in my opinion. (The band later disbanded and singer Chris Cornell went back to Soundgarden while the rest of the band including Eddie Vedder went on to form Pearl Jam - that's a pretty good lineup if you ask me.) Two songs stick out in particular as being great collaborations that could make Chuck Norris melt like a grilled cheese sandwich.

(voted third best vocal performance of all time)
That's good wholesome music right there.
