408. Buffalo Tom
Although they were initially labelled as a Dinosaur Jr. rip off, Buffalo Tom persevered and my the middle of the 90’s, they were considered one of the more respected Alternative acts in the United States. They altered their sound and it seemed like they were on the verge of a major mainstream breakthrough. This didn’t happen, but they did earn a lot of respect in the alt community and had a decent run; though that won’t lead them to Cleveland.
