In our second last 20th Anniversary Edition we focus on albums which turned heads in 1997 in the alternative realm. Whether it be funk metal, rap metal or alternative rock, alternative music takes many forms.

Feel the nostalgia as it hits like a ton of bricks with songs that will make you feel old and ask yourself has it really been twenty years?
