TOPIC: 1990/1991 in hard rock & heavy metal music

I have to agree with you for the most part, Cobras...I too got swept up in the grunge movement of the 90's and went the popular alternative music route during that decade for the most part.  Oh, I still listened and jammed to the big hair 80's music I grew up with (f-you for trashing them btw ), was one of the first 5 million or so to buy G'n'R's masterful Use Your Illusion CDs, and stuck with Metallica during their foray into Alt Metal.  

I credit Kiss' '96 Unplugged set and the subsequent reunion tour for taking the tattered banner of Hard Rock and Metal, kicking the shit out of grunge, and paving the way for Hard Rock and Metal to become somewhat more popular again.  No single Hard Rock/Metal act during '96/'97 did more for kicking the door in during that time than the guys in black spandex and kabuki-style make-up until Iron Maiden headlined Rock In Rio III (2001).
