Watch The Q101 Top 101 Alternative/Modern Rock Songs/Videos of 1992 Below

What’s most amazing about the year Q101 went from the Murphy In The Morning era to what we Chicago still enjoys this day is the amount of diversity you’ll find in the 1992 debut year for the ‘alternative’.

Notice traces of rave, techno and club music in Messiah, Sunscreen, Opus III, Utah Saints and more that would be the anchoring idea behind SONIC BOOM.

RHCP, Nirvana, Pearl Jam and others were just starting their meteoric rise to iconic stardom and as you watch you’ll notice what variety was all about back then.
