Part four of the most "memorable" music of 1999 brings a superb sophomore turn from the Dixie Chicks while Garth Brooks goes kinda nuts. British rock stands proud with Muse, Gomez, and Supergrass and the schlocky, corporate rock of Creed rockets to the top of the US charts.
Straight outta Britpop and straight to the top of the charts, and then gradually back down. When everyone was watching Oasis and Blur call each other names, they should have been listening to Supergrass.
Former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes talks with PopMatters about his career, rediscovering his love of the guitar, and his new solo album, World's Strongest Man, which may be his best work yet.
