Music of the 1990s.
Harrison (music business and recording, Jacksonville U.) describes key artists in genres of American music of the 1990s, beginning with artists of the 1980s who continued into the 1990s, new artists of the decade, and the impact of dance music, then detailing the move from pop-based hip-hop to a reality-focused genre, the decline of 1980s hard rock and heavy metal, the rise of grunge and alternative music, mainstream rock and singer/songwriters, and pop and rock-based country, with a concluding chapter on musical theater, jazz, popular Christian music, and classical music.
