Name some albums that you think shaped the music industry...

    Examples:

    Motley Crue's Dr. Feelgood shaped Rock and Metal into Hair Metal and created a lot of clones like Poison, etc.

    Nirvana's Nevermind and Green Day's Dookie took the emphasis away from the crappy Hair Metal saturation and combined Garage, Punk and Rock into one.

    Nine Inch Nails' Downward Spiral, Marilyn Manson's Antichrist Superstar and Tool's Aenima took the emphasis away from the grappy Alternative and Grunge saturation and introduced Rock and Metal to Industrial, Goth and performance art.

    The Spice Girls... did godknowswhat, and my god I don't know what the hell was going on there.

    Prodigy's Fat of the Land and Moby's Play introduced Rock and Dance to Techno.

    Backstreet Boys brought back "boy bands." (Yeah, thanks for that.)

    Britney and Christina did something to the Pop industry, way back when. Jessica came later on, and low and behold all of them are still here, which is surprising.

    The Strokes' Is This It tapped into the Retro, Low-Fi Rock scene and then asked their rich dads to hook them up with a place on Billboard. The White Stripes' White Blood Cells got their chance too, which was well deserved.

    Your turn!

    In Utero kinda came in the middle of the Grunge hype and didn't really change anything about it. It was considered a mediocre album too. If you wanna name another Nirvana album besides Nevermind that really shaped the industry, try Unplugged. This showed that garage bands actually had cohesive, live talent. It surprised a lot of people who ignored Grunge at first.

    Grunge didn't influence anything at all, neither did Nirvana. Grunge lived and died, and that's it.

    The Beatles (even though I'm not a fan) is the only band who shaped the music industry.

    I had thought about adding this album to the Nevermind/ Dookie era but didn't.

    Although I don't even really like Pearl Jam anymore (I do like Ten however), I wouldn't really categorize Pearl Jam with Nirvana and Green Day. Not the same type of music in my opinion. I think Ten was revolutionary within its genre, which isn't grunge to me. Pearl Jam, during that time period, was more rock/alternative.

    I dunno, I could be way wrong though. :)

    The first New Kids on the Block album, I don't remember the name. It spawned a whole shitload of no talent assclowns.

    Yes, they were the archetype of boy bands, if you don't count the Beatles or Monkees.

    Not true, what about Billy Haley's Rock around the clock? Groundbreaking. And it is often said that everyone that bought Velvet Underground's first album went on to form a band, i would call that a lot of influence.

    OK Computer - Radiohead

    this album was a technical upgrade for the musical modern rock, and set the standard as one of the greatest albums ever.

    yeah, alot of those I kinda second guessed,I was just looking through my album collection in a hurry, didn't really think hard about it.......



    ps - Anyone who doesn't think the Beatles was one of the best bands ever either has shitty taste in music, or hasn't given them a chance, go listen to Abbey Road, Magical Mystery Tour, and Revolver and then if you still think the Beatles are no good, then you have problems

    But Throbbing Gristle, Coil or Skinny Puppy never reached the mainstream.



    I was gonna add Chembros, but I don't think "Block Rockin' Beats" or "Setting Sun" were as strong as "Smack My Bitch Up," "Firestarter" or "South Side."

    FYI, I don't know shit about the Beatles, 'cept that they were one of the first Pop Rock groups to debut.

    They were the first group to write their own songs and really made writing your own songs popular, they also started the british invasion

    As soon as I read the first sentence, KMFDM went off in my head. I remember when they used to run a website with "MTV Sucks!" on it.

    As for Big Beat, I think Fatboy Slim marked the end of it. And I remember reading an article about Underworld saying that all these big record companies were trying to get them to leave TVT and sign on, and they said no because they were in the industry for the long haul and knew that these companies were in it just to milk it. I thought that was really cool, and if I'm not mistaken, KMFDM is on TVT too...? Do you know why Reznor had such problems with TVT?

    Radiohead is one of my favorite bands (they put on one of the best live shows I've ever seen), yet I don't like OK Computer (even though I agree that it changed things). So weird. My favorite album of theirs is The Bends, which was a decent blip on the mainstream radar but offered nothing progressive or changing to it. The only thing it did was let the fans know that they weren't just a one hit wonder, which almost killed them.

    Radiohead will always be one of my favorites as well
    personally, i think OK Computer is their best..
    second favorite would probably be Hail to the Theif, its a well shaped album
    but i agree in saying The Bends is one of their best as well. second only to OK Comp. and HttT for me.
