289. Jesus Lizard

For a long time, to my discredit, I naively thought that Nirvana were either a singular phenomenon or a band whose closest cousin was Pearl Jam.  Only when I started really listening to music did I realize what different musical universes Nirvana and Pearl Jam really existed in.  And coming to this realization took some discovery of the many of the lesser hyped bands from the ’80s and ’90s who both developed the sound Nirvana would eventually mainstream and the genuinely grungy bands that were too actually grunge to be what the mainstream was passing off as allegedly “grunge”.

Jesus Lizard is one of the bands any Nirvana fan should really spend some time with.   And stay tuned for more such bands as the rest of this top 366 list of my favorite bands continues to countdown all year until the new year.
