6. Pavement

Stephen Malkmus and Scott Kannberg were greatly influenced by an '80s band we'd love to see reunite - The Replacements. Not typical grunge rock, Pavement had a strong sense of melody. "Range Life" even criticized '90s legends Smashing Pumpkins and Stone Temple Pilots. "Slanted and Enchanted" and "Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain" were some of the finest records of the decade. Reunion surely possible, but no signs yet.
