US Top 30 Alternative Songs: August 24, 1991

US Top 30 Alternative Songs: August 24, 1991

Playing tracks by

Richard Thompson, Transvision Vamp, The Fat Lady Sings, Crowded House, Chapterhouse and more.

Chart positions

This show was 43rd in the global alternative rock chart, 67th in the global indie rock chart, 89th in the global indie chart and 95th in the global alternative chart.

Summer's winding down, but we're just getting warmed up on this Brit-tastic edition of the Top 30 modern rock throwback countdown. By the mid 1990s US alternative is dominated by American-made rock 'n roll, namely grunge and punk. But in the pre-Nevermind era of '91 it's all about the Brits: shoegaze, Madchester, Britpop, and other assorted goodies. Dig in and feel the U4EA!

Well done GB!!!!!!! I do like the alternative music of 1991 - I was born two years later and wanted to know why you choose cats to sit next to the big alternative musician of that time. Oh talking of cats 🐈, have U got any chart rundowns from 1997-1998

Well done, GB. I too have made some mixes reflecting on 1991; they contain a subjective collection of bands played in chronological order of their released music (only thing missing from mine are the appropriate movie sound bites). Here's the one that contains the August releases: https://www.mixcloud.com/lightninghockeymusic/2016-04-09-1991-time-capsule-part-2-of-4/
