Late 90's Rock/Pop

In the late 90's you had many rock bands who were more sissy than they were Megadeath. I don't know if I would consider them pop, maybe power pop. And I say that because also during this time frame you had some really pop boy bands and Celine Dion. I would say these bands had much more talent than the boy bands because they could play their own instruments and some of the jams were pretty dope.

The best bands of this genre are hard to pinpoint, I would say maybe there are none. There are however some super sucky bands from this genre, they include Matchbox 20, Vertical Horizon, Goo Goo Dolls, 3 Doors Down, and Nine Days. Please don't get this twisted, all these bands are pretty bad, and you would definitely be a sissy if you said you enjoyed them, but each one individually could have a good song. However, Goo Goo Dolls "Iris" is not something you can listen to while lifting weights and drinking whey protein. But then you can have Goo Goo Dolls "Slide" which is better, and I will allow it to be played in my presence. If you are a girl of course, this whole paragraph doesn't apply to you so calm down you are allowed love this ish.

Now a classy band of this genre was Third Eye Blind, they really didn't cater to 14 year old girls with braces. Their lead singer rocked a thin beard way before anyone else. The best song of this genre is their "Jumper." In this epic jam, brus number 1 tries talking this other brus down from the ledge. The chorus of this song is totally choice. This song probably gets played at every relay for life gathering. This song has it all, catchy chorus, an actual message, and lyrics that you can just scream for those of us who can't sing.

Regard this video, this is an actual band, Daphne Loves Derby, covering it, I don't much about them, but I think their fan base is exclusively female if that means anything to you. Ladies guard your panties.
