Billboard #1 Alternative Rock Hits (in the U.S.) from 1988 to 2014

Not in the camera, Nick. I told you: NOT in the camera.

"More than eight years after first appearing on a Billboard chart, Arctic Monkeys score their first No. 1 on Billboard's radio-based Alternative Songs survey, as "Do I Wanna Know?" rises 2-1", wrote Billboard tuesday. Great! I do love Arctic Monkeys' AM (likely my favourite album in 2013) and I think that's the right time to update an old Spotirama playlist collecting all the number one alternative hits in the US from 1988 to today. Source is Wikipedia. Browsing the list, some forgotten names and tunes made me suddenly remember when I used to spend long post-school afternoons watching MTV: Blind Melon's No Rain, Crash Test Dummies' Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm, The Offspring's Come Out and Play, The Cranberries' Zombie, The Presidents of the USA, Bush, The Wallflowers, Chumbawamba... Oh. My. God.
