448. The Meat Puppets
Like many American Underground Alternative acts of the 80’s, the Meat Puppets got a kick at the mainstream after the Grunge explosion. They had a couple of minor hits, but unlike many of their 80’s Underground peers, the Meat Puppets remained together putting out quietly acclaimed albums that were mostly featured on College radio. Their “Cowpunk” style is often duplicated and as much as they were covered by Nirvana, they will likely watch them get in without seeing that accolade for themselves.
