This year, we’re celebrating the Class of ’93, Class of ’98, and Class of ’03 throughout the Thanksgiving holiday for our Rock Reunion Weekend.

 

All weekend long, we’ll be serving up heaping helpings of the biggest rock songs from 1993, 1998, and 2003. Why? Do the math! It’s 2023. That means the Class of ’93 has their 30th reunion this year, the Class of ’98 has their 25th, and the Class of ’03 has their 20th. If that makes you feel old, we apologize wholeheartedly. But we don’t make the rules. Math is math. And 30 years is 30 years.

 

So maybe you finished up high school in 1993 and you’re off to your 30th reunion at some function hall this weekend. Or maybe you and some of your college friends on Facebook decided to mark 20 years since you graduated by making plans to get together for the first time in a long time. No matter your circumstances, we have your soundtrack all weekend long. And a taste right here.

 

Rock Reunion Weekend: 12 Tunes for the Class of ’93, ’98 & ’03

Talk about stacked years, too. ’93 gave us three essential alt rock albums: Smashing PumpkinsSiamese Dream, Nirvana‘s In Utero, and Pearl Jam‘s Vs. There’s more Pearl Jam in ’98 with Yield, along with The Offspring‘s Americana and Hello Nasty from the Beastie Boys. And ’03 is no slouch, either: you’ll hear a ton from Linkin Park‘s Metetora, as well as The White Stripes and Evanescence.

 

And those are just the big names. We’ll have a few one-hit wonders in the mix and some locals, too. So make ROCK 92.9 your Thanksgiving weekend soundtrack.

Just leave the green bean casserole off of it.

  • Nirvana "Heart-Shaped Box"

    The most highly-anticipated album of 1993 turned 30 this year.

  • Smashing Pumpkins "Cherub Rock"

    Maybe my favorite alt-rock album of the ’90s also turned 30 this year.

  • Radiohead "Creep"

    Yes, Radiohead’s debut also turns 30 this year. And it’s a better album than it gets credit for.

  • Pearl Jam "Daughter"

    Sure, you’ll get this one this weekend. But we’ll go deeper into the band’s sophomore effort, too.

  • Pearl Jam "Given To Fly"

    Yes, we’ll be double-dipping Pearl Jam this weekend because Yield released 25 years ago.

  • Beastie Boys "Intergalactic"

    Iconic video, iconic song, iconic album. 25 years on.

  • The Offspring "The Kids Aren't Alright"

    Americana certainly has it’s silly moments. But this one’s serious and one of the punkier tracks on the album.

  • Eve 6 "Inside Out"

    Yes, the “heart in a blender” song turned 25 this year. Max must be so proud.

  • Linkin Park "Numb"

    It’s cool because we get to play both “Dumb” from Nirvana and “Numb” from Linkin Park this weekend! They rhyme!

  • The White Stripes "Seven Nation Army"

    The song that soundtracked 1000 sporting events turns 20 this year. Mindblowing.

  • Evanescence "Bring Me To Life"

    This one doesn’t feel 20. Of all the songs on this weekend’s playlist, this one just doesn’t hit as “older.”

  • Dropkick Murphys "Walk Away"

    Blackout turned 20 this year, so you know we’re throwing some Dropkicks in the mix.
