Lourenço VC Very flawed… Guns N’ Roses were the biggest band in the world back then with a double album that released 12 singles from 1991-1993… There is not a single mention of them from 1991-1993… November Rain even entered the Guiness book of records…. John Barnes Agreed. Very heavy on the Pop/Hip Hop/Rap categories. Some country and others. A lot of Alternative Rock missing from the ’90s. I wonder what the data source is for this?
