Going to #1 for the week of September 11th, 1993 for a single week was The Juliana Hatfield Three with the song My Sister. This was Juliana Hatfield's most successful single release of her career and it has an interesting story behind it as Hatfield doesn't even have a real life sister. Join me for the breakdown.…
 
Going to #1 on Modern Rock for 4 consecutive weeks on August 14th, 1993 was the Red Hot Chilli Peppers with Soul to Squeeze. It would actually take 2 weeks off from the top spot and return for an additional week at #1 on September 25th, 1993. This song featured incredibly dark subject matter yet it was featured on the soundtrack for the comedy film…
 
Going to #1 for 3 weeks on Modern Rock on July 24th, 1993 was Tears for Fears with the song Break It Down Again. This was Tears for Fears minus Curt Smith who had departed the group in 1991. That fracture would make up much of the lyrical content from Roland Orzabal on this album "Elemental."
 
Going to number 1 on the week of May 15th, 1993 was Depeche Mode with the single Walking In My Shoes. This would be the bands 4th and final number 1 single in chart history and their second in a row from Songs of Faith and Devotion.

The legends themselves Depeche Mode went to #1 for 5 consecutive weeks starting on March 27th, 1993 with the single I Feel You. The lead off single from Songs of Faith and Devotion would be the bands 3rd number 1 on the chart. The band incorporated more rock on this album to great success. Join me for the breakdown.…
 
Going number 1 on Modern Rock for the week of January 23rd, 1993 for a lengthy 6 consecutive weeks was Jesus Jones with the single The Devil You Know. Basically it's the exact opposite of their massive feel good hit Right Here, Right Now as the band took a dark turn musically and lyrically. They used some groundbreaking recording techniques on this…

Going to #1 on Modern Rock for the week of October 17th, 1992 was REM with Drive. This was the lead single from their album Automatic For The People and as per usual it found Michael Stipe in political territory with his lyrics.

Going to #1 for just a single week on the week of October 10th, 1992 was American Folk Inspired Singer-Songwriter Suzanne Vega with Blood Makes Noise. This song is very industrial sounding despite the fact Vega said upon writing the song she had never heard Industrial music in her life. Join me for the breakdown of why the song sounds the way it do…
 
Going to #1 on the week of June 13th, 1992 was The Cure with Friday I'm In Love. Robert Smith intentionally wrote and composed a song that was the complete opposite of what one would expect from his band The Cure. He didn't like being entirely lumped in with the gloom and goth crowd. So, we get a peppy love song. Join me for the breakdown.…
 
Going to #1 for one week on May 23rd 1992 was The Charlatans with Weirdo. This hammond organ heavy, brit pop track was the bands most successful US single release.

Going to #1 on the week of May 9, 1992 for 2 consecutive weeks was the Bakersfield, California rockers Cracker with their debut single Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now). These guys truly did capture the feel of the time and the emerging Gen X sound. Join me for the breakdown.
 
Finally, a song with lots to talk about. I find it hard to believe that this track only went to #1 on Modern Rock for a single week. It has remained etched into the public music consciousness to this day and many consider it one of the greatest tracks of all time. But this song did not come easy for the group. In fact, it almost resulted in their b…
 
Another some what forgotten song that went on a multi week #1 run. This time it's from the iconic Lou Reed on February 8th, 1992 with his single What's Good going #1 for 3 weeks. A soundtrack song initially, that made it on to his 1991 album Magic and Loss. Join me for a deeper breakdown of what this track is all about.…

The second single from Achtung Baby was Mysterious Ways and it went to #1 on Nov 30th, 1991 for 9 consecutive weeks. That is quite the run. The song was actually born out of a studio improv session when the guys couldn't get over how groovy Adam Clayton's bassline was. Join me for the breakdown.
 
The very first #1 for the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. A band that has gone on to have 13 different number one chart toppers on Modern Rock, which is the most of any group in chart history. This one topped the chart for 2 consecutive weeks starting the week of October 26, 1991. Join me for the breakdown.
 
Electronic was a supergroup of sorts featuring Bernard Sumner from New Order and Johnny Marr who may be best know as The Smiths lead guitarist.
