I was a teenager during the 90s and it was a great time to be female with the Riot Grrrl movement happening. I was in an all-girl band for a few years too. I can't say I really enjoy those bands any more though. Babes in Toyland, L7, Hole, Voodoo Queens were some of my favourites, but are now far too screamy for my delicate mid-thirties ears...
Some bands still stand the test of time for me though, such as -
Ben Folds Five
Smog (not quite a band as such)
Super Furry Animals
I could go on and bore you, so I'll stop there.
I recently spent an inordinate amount of time compiling a 90s 'mixtape', which brought back some great musical memories: http://8tracks.com/ladyelevator/i-the-90s
