Can you believe this track only went to #1 for 1 week? Nirvana topped the modern rock chart on November 23rd, 1991 with their lead single from Nevermind. Despite only being #1 for 1 week it would go on to change the landscape of alternative music forever.

U2 was back with their lead single from their seventh studio album, Achtung Baby. It went number 1 for 2 consecutive weeks on Nov 9, 1991. The band introduced a crunchier more experimental sound with this release and Bono got highly conceptual. Join me for the breakdown.

The very first #1 for the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. A band that has gone on to have 13 different number one chart toppers on Modern Rock, which is the most of any group in chart history. This one topped the chart for 2 consecutive weeks starting the week of October 26, 1991. Join me for the breakdown.

This track actually went to #1 for 5 consecutive weeks on September 21st, 1991. That's quite a run for a song that likely get's no airplay anymore. This English singer-songwriter has had a lengthy career. Join me for the breakdown.

The next some to go #1 on Modern Rock was from The Psychedelic Furs with Until She Comes. It would go to #1 for 2 consecutive weeks on September 7, 1991 and would be the groups 3rd song to go #1 in the short history of the chart to this point.

In 1991 Mick Jones' Big Audio Dynamite became Big Audio Dynamite II. The lead single from the album The Globe was Rush and it went to #1 for 4 consecutive weeks on August 10th, 1991. It borrowed heavily from many different songs.

The first band that ever went #1 on Modern Rock the first week the chart was formed in 1988 was Siouxsie and the Banshees. They are back on July 6, 1991 with their second #1 song with Kiss Them For Me. This was the bands most successful single in the United States.

Electronic was a supergroup of sorts featuring Bernard Sumner from New Order and Johnny Marr who may be best know as The Smiths lead guitarist. The group often featured prominent guest vocal appearances from other heavyweight peer artists. This song went to #1 on the week of June 22nd, 1991 for 2 consecutive weeks.

Elvis Costello goes all Beach Boys pastiche with a good time, California feel to the music, contrasted with dark lyrical content. This track went to number one of the week of May 25th, 1991 for 4 consecutive weeks.

Going to number 1 for two consecutive weeks on the week of May 11th, 1991 was Simple Minds with See The Lights. This relatively hook-less song probably wouldn't make it far on Modern Rock radio these days, and it certainly shows how much the chart has changed since 1991.
