Music throughout the 1990s appealed to a wide range of preferences. R&B heavyweights Boyz II Men and En Vogue had chart-topping successes during the decade, as did grunge rock artists like Nirvana and Pearl Jam, as well as pop luminaries like the Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls. A lot has happened in the last few decades, both culturally and musically, which prompted Stacker to explore Billboard chart data and examine the career arcs of 25 of the best-selling bands from the 1990s—including what made them so successful and where their band members are now.

Editor’s Picks

The careers of the band’s Stacker chose varied as much as the music itself. For some, such as rock titans U2 and Aerosmith, the 1990s were simply another decade of chart-topping music; for others, such as SWV and the Spice Girls, the decade signified whole career arcs. Several of the bands on this list have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Several members of these bands, ranging from Nirvana’s Dave Grohl to Hootie & the Blowfish’s Darius Rucker, went on to form other popular bands, have profitable solo careers, or both. Some acts disbanded because of infighting, drug abuse, or death. Each band is divided into two slides: the first examines some of the group’s noteworthy achievements in the 1990s, and the second looks at members’ musical paths since the turn of the century.
