RSN 1990s Top 1000
List created by Gabriel Thy

Still having most of my clues for the best new music in the early part of the 1990s given to me by my friend and fellow stomping buddy, Jack Johnson, the day we suffered our final falling out about money, would be the day the music died for me until I discovered iTunes on my wife's new Mac OS X box, and I shortly afterwards launched RSN. At that point, needing to fill in few gaps, to extend the knowledge, and satisfy my curiosity about who was doing what these days, I began seeking out music wherever I could find it.

This push started out as "new wave" which would morph into pop in new clothes. Punk would grow darker and heavier for the remainder of the decade. Metal became norm, and began its crude assault on the senses as speed metal. Even old pop rock bands from the 60s would hit the Eighties running with a new perspective, a new questioning, a new date zero, some 70s punk bands would tear through the Eighties as damn near mainstream giants, such as the Ramones and Iggy Pop. I would engage them all on a more personal level than mere record listening, by relocating back to Atlanta for a brief eighteen month period, and then onto Washington, DC, home of the hardcore punk scene. This punk scene raged against me, and I raged right back.

But the 1990s would have their way with me—eventually. After I launched RSN on July 2 2003, seeking out and buying new music became interesting and important to me again. It took no time at all to find myself suddenly in love again—with rock music, this time in the form of Industrial Goth, thanks to bands like Rammstein, Control Theory, Birmingham 6, Kill Switch Klick, Wümpscut, and many others as our chart will attest. New Rock came on strong, and we were back in the game. —December 29, 2013
