Smashmouth - Walking on the Sun
Beck - Loser
Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood
Jive Jones - Me Myself and I
Sublime - Doin' Time
Sum 41 - Fat Lip
Barenaked Ladies - One Week
Blink 182 - What's my age again
Everclear - When it all goes wrong again
Green Day - Longview
Harvey Danger - Flagpole Sitta
Pixies - Stormy Weather

Oasis - Wonderwall
Nirvana - Heart-Shaped Box

Lou Bega - Mambo No. 5
Blink 182 - All the small things
Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
Foo Fighters - X-Static
Oasis - Don't look back in anger
Sublime - What I got

Beta Band - Dry the Rain

plus, some extras:
Sugar Ray - Someday
Ginuwine - Pony
Nine Inch Nails - The Perfect Drug
Over - Portishead
Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

If you're enjoying 80s and 90s stuff, the current artists you might enjoy include:

Beck: dude's been making music since the early 90s and it's all been fabulous. If I have to fucking hear "Dreams" one more time I'll stab Pandora, but not because the song itself is bad ... just because they play it as a sponsored song a 1000 times on all my stations. I'm a big fan of the albums Midnite Vultures (which is a funk album!) and Guero. His newer album Morning Phase is supposed to be good but I haven't listened to it.

The Black Keys: blues/grunge-ish band. Guitar and drums. Think the White Stripes or Nirvana + Rolling Stones - my dad's old T shirts.

Spoon: later 90s to mid/late aughts and maybe now. I'd start with "My Mathematical Mind" and "I turn my camera on" from Gimme Fiction and "Don't make me a target" and "The Underdog" from Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga.

Hey, Nine Inch Nails has been making music since the 80s and is still doing it, more or less. Maybe don't blast Nine Inch Nails around younger siblings or very proper, polite adults though.

When I was exploring music at the end of high school and in college (which was forever ago oh god) I got a lot of mileage out of Pitchfork's lists for different genres and decades, because it helped me find stuff I wouldn't listen to otherwise. Maybe check out something like this?

If it turns out you like the bluesier or funkier sides of what I suggested above, maybe go back even further and try out some of our parents or grandparents music? I like both the early real rock with blues clothing and the actual blues that inspired it more and more as I get older. Like, try the Rolling Stones ... but also try Muddy Waters. You might find some stuff you like in Awesome Mix Vol. 1.

Love Beck. I recommend Girl, Get Real Paid, and Missing.

Here's some kind of mix. Mostly 70s-90s or early 00s.

The Eagles - One of These Nights
Goo Goo Dolls - Black Balloon
Murmurs - Genius
Supertramp - Dreamer
Dire Straits - Love Over Gold
Genesis - That's All (or Keep It Dark, depending on your tastes)
Pink Floyd - Learning to Fly
Tom Petty - Running Down a Dream
Stevie Wonder - Do I Do
Stevie Nicks - Rooms on Fire
Steely Dan - FM
Blondie - Atomic
Fleetwood Mac - Dreams
Blue Oyster Cult - Burning for You
Billy Joel - Stiletto
All American Rejects - Dirty Little Secret
Ozark Mountain Daredevils - Jackie Blue
Garbage - Only Happy When It Rains
Aerosmith - Water Song (Jamie's Got a Gun)
Talking Heads - (Nothing But) Flowers

Edit: I'm just kind of assuming that you listen to Nirvana.

If you want some advice on finding new stuff that's not necessarily pop, hit me up! The last few years have been good to music.

I additionally appreciate the 90's music, appreciate all the peace in it, truly music is the spirit of the body which gives genuine solace and sorrow. so everybody a debt of gratitude is in order for sharing the determination of yours.

I don't really know if I know of any 80s songs, but I do listen to a lot of 90s, so here's some songs that I personally really like from the 90s.

1.) Heart-Shaped Box by Nirvana
2.) Don't Speak by No Doubt
3.) Basket Case by Green Day
4.) Losing My Religion by R.E.M
5.) Ironic by Alanis Morissette
6.) Two Princes by Spin Doctors
7.) Everlong by The Foo Fighters
8.) Wonderwall by Oasis
9.) Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve
10.) 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
11.) Creep by Radiohead

I know of a lot of other songs, but I can't remember any more than that at this current moment.
Also, if anyone wants to listen to any really good but not very popular bands, I know of several so just VM me.

I'm a huge fan of movie scores. Helps me imagine stories.
