Commentary

bulletAm I the only guy who heard Nirvana's Heart-Shaped Box (#15) as a not-so thinly veiled diss on Courtney Love?  To me it sounds like him describing how she set her sights on him (to further her own career?) and then entrapped him by getting pregnant.
bulletThis was the Stone Temple Pilots' big breakout year with the Core album and Plush (#1).  I always felt STP got unfairly criticized as Nirvana wannabes.  Each of their albums are strong and distinctive in its own right.
bulletRadiohead also first gained notice with Creep (#2).  I've heard now that they have sort of disowned the song, I guess they were trying too hard to be commercial at that point or something.  I don't see what their problem is.
bulletDid anyone expect to see Duran Duran in the top 10 again (Come Undone at #5, plus Ordinary World at #16).  That was nice to see them again, although they quickly re-disappeared.
