Proud Like A God by Guano Apes,
an alt/nu metal band from Göttingen, Germany.
Fuck it, that's as alternative as it goes. Indie scene was still just a bunch of tone-deaf retards. Plus, guano means feces and urine. Go team excrement monkeys!
Open your eyes, open your mind
proud like a god don't pretend to be blind
trapped in yourself, break out instead
beat the machine that works in your head
Honorable (even more mainstreamish) mentions are:
Beyond Good And Evil by The Cult - their ONLY album that wasn't just one or two hits with ten fillers. Very awesome album. The best The Cult album, though no one will ever admit it.
Red Album by Days Of The New - maybe the awesomest acoustic/grunge rock ever. And all that by a guy with autism.
Toxicity by System Of A Down - not sellouts back then yet. One of the best albums of the Ohs designed for doing something in the asskicking spectrum. Like kicking ass.
We have shit falling from the sky. First, snow:
And then rain...
