We traveled through time to reflect on an impressive music year, 1991, for this week's Saturday Morning Flashback.

Grunge music burst in our ears as Nirvana's major label debut, "Nevermind" had an immediate impact and brought the alternative world into the mainstream. Couple that with Pearl Jam's debut "10", and a movement arrived. U2 transformed their style, embracing dance beats and electronic effects to commercial and artistic success. And R.E.M. was adding strings and mandolins to their sound becoming the #1 album on the XRT Listener Poll.
