Is Black Hole Sun Smashing Pumpkins? Mid-late 90s music is kind of a vague, blurry period for me unless it was rap or something by Mariah Carey. I'm only a little embarrassed to admit that. :)

Diamonds and Rust....such a pretty song!

Black Hole Sun is by Soundgarden. I'm pretty sure.

And whee, this is fun!

Dude, I so should've known that seeing as Soundgarden is from here, and all. I do remember the video and being a little freaked out by it. :)

Was that the creepy video that Sarah Michelle Gellar was in, or am I thinking of something completely different, probably?

The creepy video with Sarah Michelle Gellar was a Stone Temple Pilots video..."Sour Girl", I think

Paint It, Black is one of my all time faves. Love that song so much, even if it has the typical 3 note Stones tune.

And added!
