- Jay: First got into Camper Van Beethoven with Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart

- Prince had Lovesexy out, taking the place of the Black Album

- Cowboy Junkies scored a big hit with cover of "Sweet Jane"

- Jay: HMs include Smithereens, Soundgarden, Keith Richards, B.A.D., Run DMC, Waterboys, Sonic Youth, Living Colour, Metallica, Plant, Church

- Brian had a substitute teacher who sang the praises of Queensryche
