Ah, the '90s. What a strange time in music. Among the flurry of unshowered grunge bands (Nirvana and Nine Inch Nails) and backwoods-festival-playing alternative rock groups (Counting Crows, Hootie and the Blowfish, Dave Matthews Band and The Wallflowers), were a few ladies with acoustic guitars and pianos and a closet full of bones to pick with the male of the species.
