The weekend time machine, Saturday Morning Flashback, shined a spotlight on 1991.

We heard a lotta noise coming from Seattle, as the nascent Grunge scene went national thanks to the game-changing Nirvana record "Nevermind." There were breakthrough records from Matthew Sweet and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. REM took their music to a new level with the international smash and Listener Poll-winning "Out of Time."

U2 went to Germany and redefined their style with the "Achtung Baby" disc, And in August, Lollapalooza arrived for the first time rocking the World Music Theater in Tinley Park. Here's the playlist...
