  • Jane’s Addiction

    Jane’s Addiction set the bar for the alternative rock genre. (They also brought the alternative nation together with the Lollapalooza festival, created by frontman Perry Farrell in 1991.) Formed in the Los Angeles club scene of 1985, the group’s original lineup consisted of Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, bassist Eric Avery, and drummer Stephen Perkins. Largely influenced by Led Zeppelin and the Cure, their sound is both primal and heady, mixing frenetic, super-charged rock, prog, psychedelic, and heavy-metal riffs with Ferrell’s enigmatic voice and mystic tendencies. Though Jane’s Addiction have broken up and reconvened numerous times over the last few decades, releasing only four studio albums in total, they’ve never really gone away; the songs “Jane Says” and “Mountain Song” from their 1988 album, Nothing’s Shocking, and “Been Caught Stealing” and “Stop!” from their 1990 album, Ritual de lo Habitual, are alt-rock staples. If you liked Jane’s Addiction in the ’90s, you have to check out the recent vinyl reissues of their early albums. Never have they sounded so good!
