Nineteen eighty-eight. A year where CDs began to outsell cassette tapes, GNR rocked, and U2 dominated the Grammys. It was the beginning of many great things, including the birth year of several important bands. This section chronicles the Pumpkins' American rock contemporaries and their releases and separations through the 1990's and beyond. Hopefully this table can better explain the chronology of 90's music. For an extensive Pumpkins chronology, visit Starla.
