It's hard to believe it's been 15 years since the '90s officially ended, and like any decade, one of its defining characteristics was the music. And before boy bands and pop princesses hijacked the airwaves near the turn of the century, '90s popular music was dotted with charismatic rock singers who knew their way around a a catchy hook and a cheesy music video. Some of them became famous off the strength of one undeniable hit, others built more consistent careers, but all of them hold that special place in our heart, between love, nostalgia, and slight embarassment.
