Everything else was mostly rap metal shit and suckedI want to say that was like--1998 to 2003-ish? Then the emo shit happened, which was maybe worse.

01-12-2019, 06:49 PM
yeah 98 was the big explosion. 1999 and 2000 it was at its peak then it slowly drifted away until its death knell around 03....the soundcloud mumble rap shit going on today makes me long for the days of Fred Durst

It felt better at the time but looking back it's one of the worst music years ever retrospectively. The Fragile still towers above anything else for me that year.
Windowlicker by Aphex Twin was an EP? Does that count?.

It was the best year ever for cinema though 1999 is legendary for that so that sort of made up the culture vacuum

Edit: Rage Againt the Machine's Battle of Los Angeles is worth mentioning at least.
