Ask me anything about Grunge, Metal, East/West Coast rap, Alternative Rock, Indie Rock, or whatever. If I don't know it, I can track it down. I can be of little help in the realm of country, but it was a good decade for it.
I grew up during this period, and the Grunge/Alternative movement heavily influenced my listening tastes, which had previously consisted only of Classic Rock. I have most of the albums from the 90s (collection of over 200 CDs), and I'll try to give academic answers, not mushy, fan-based advocacy. I might, however, rant on a subject about which I feel strongly.
Various historical organizations and a bunch of volunteer groups. Go volunteer, you won't regret it.

I have no formal education in 90s music and I doubt there is such a degree (if there were, I'd enroll). However, I have an M.A. in History and I do research for a living. I also play guitar and drums, and this, regardless of how bad I am at it, at least lends to my legitamacy as a fellow music lover.
