Stone Temple Pilots
WebsiteStone Temple Pilots
Despite making two of the most arguably durable grunge-era albums (1994’s Purple and 1996’s Tiny Music… Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop), Stone Temple Pilots aren’t yet recognized as one of the best ’90s mainstream rock acts. An unfortunately easy target during an annoyingly cred-conscious period in pop history, the band eventually broke up in 2003. A notoriously troubled 2008 reunion tour didn’t help STP’s reputation, but against all odds the band has stuck together and made another album (though it doesn’t bring anything new to the table), last year’s Stone Temple Pilots.
