Clever Journeys

Simple, honest, freedom and fun., famous celebrity tour buses through the years.

The first celebrity tour bus I ever saw was outside the Municipal Auditorium in San Antonio. Virginia Grimmett, a dear family friend, pointed it out:

“Look Jackie, it’s Claude Kings and Don Gibson’s bus,” she gestured. “I think Minnie Pearl might be in there too.”

As a 7 year old, in 1963, it was incredible to see real Country and Western stars from the Grande Ole Opry stepping out of their own bus.

I remember Pearl greeting us from the stage with her signature, “Howwdy! So glad to be here” and Roy Orbison singing “Only the Lonely” and “In Dreams.” (“Pretty Woman” would not be out until the following year).

But I distinctly recall, after the Opry, standing out in the shivering cold with Mrs. Grimmett, her husband Jimmy, and my parents watching some of the entertainers returning back onto the bus.

What an exciting memory. Little did I know, as an adult I’d actually step inside (or just at the doorway) to meet such stars as B.B. King, Conway Twitty, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson, Freddy Mercury, Kenny Loggins Jim Messina, Randy Bachman (Bachman-Turner Overdrive), Jackson Browne, and Chubby Checker.

Others I interviewed in their buses included Whiskey Meyers more recently to Flash Cadillac and the Continental Kids in the 1970s.

With this fascination and interest in mind, here are some of the most famous celebrity tour buses through the years.

90s tour bus

Olivia Rodrigo's 'GUTS' World Tour bus will be making stops in different cities.

Everything You Need To Know About Olivia Rodrigo’s GUTS World Tour Bus

Livies, there’s even a chance to win tickets to the show.

Olivia Rodrigo is taking her GUTS World Tour on the road, and bringing along a ‘90s teenage dream bus with her. Along with a merch truck filled with butterfly totes and tees, Livies HQ announced there will be a GUTS World Tour Bus Experience parked outside the venue at each show for fans to visit.

The GUTS World Tour Bus, similar to the SOUR tour experience , is an Insta-worthy and immersive pop-up with photo ops inspired by Rodrigo’s second album. According to Broadway World , the first 1,000 fans who stop by the purple bus will also get a $10 Starbucks gift card to try the brand’s new lavender drinks .

In addition to freebies and photos, Livies can try out Rodrigo’s limited-edition violet LinkBuds S earbuds from Sony before buying them. If you’re an American Express Card Member, the GUTS World Tour Bus also has exclusive merch, as well as an Olivia Rodrigo x Amex trading card set.

Even if you don’t have tickets to the GUTS tour, you can stop by the bus experience. Admission is free, and fans will have a chance to enter a giveaway that includes tickets to the show. Of course, you have to get there early. Clara Pullam from Arkansas visited the GUTS World Tour Bus Experience before her show in Nashville, Tennessee, and had to wait around two to three hours.

I would recommend you get there earlier.

“I would recommend you get there earlier — about an hour before it opens — because after that, the bus line became pretty crowded,” Pullam tells Elite Daily. Anyone wanting to buy merch and visit the GUTS bus will have to really prep before their show, but Pullam says the experience is so worth it. “The experience was super cool.”

Along with planning when to arrive, here’s everything you need to know about Olivia Rodrigo’s GUTS World Tour Bus experience:

Fans share their experience at Olivia Rodrigo's 'GUTS' tour bus experience.

The GUTS Bus Has More Than Just Photo Ops

The 'GUTS' World Tour bus has '90s details.

While snapping a pic with the red lip phone like Rodrigo was a highlight for Pullam, she says there’s way more than just photo ops at the GUTS bus. “One of my favorite things from the bus was we got to see her past tour outfits, and I am in love with her Vivienne Westwood look from SOUR ,” she says.

While waiting in line, Pullam also got to send postcards to her friends, and says the bus included photo moments from Rodrigo’s “bad idea right?” music video . Fans will also get to snap pics with a crescent moon that looks like the one Rodrigo rides around on during her set , and a glitter-filled toilet. One of the cutest details are the vintage VHS tapes on the shelf inspired by songs off Rodrigo’s GUTS album, like “Making the Bed” as She’s All That and “All-American B*tch” as Scarface.

It was super amazing to know she experienced what we experienced.

After you go through the bus and purchase merch, you also have the opportunity to bedazzle it at a styling station . Turn your tee into something retro chic if “pretty isn’t pretty enough” for you. The best part of all is that Rodrigo has gone through the bus as well. Pullam says, “It was super amazing to know she experienced what we experienced,” and you can even take your pics just like your fave homeschooled girl.

The GUTS Tour Bus Is Making Stops Along The U.S.

The 'GUTS' World Tour Bus Experience is making stops in different cities at the concert venue.

The GUTS bus made its first stop at Rodrigo’s show in Charlotte, North Carolina on March 8, and has followed along with the tour since. While Rodrigo’s site doesn’t list exactly where the GUTS experience will be, the bus is expected to appear at tour venues and local points of interest as she makes her way across the U.S.

You can also check out your tour stop’s page to find out bus information or follow her official fan account Livies HQ on Instagram.

1941 Packard 90: Open Top Tour Bus

Avatar photo

We’ve seen some very interesting stretched vehicles, but this 1941 Packard 90 that was stretched to over 22 feet long has to be the most interesting yet! To put all that added space to good use a few more doors were added to each side and enough seats bolted in to make room for 12! The engine is a 356 cid Flathead 8 with a three speed manual, so performance won’t be blistering, but it should have enough power to move all this mass. Since most drives will be leisurely, pull back the canvas cover and the top is open the entire length of the car to let some fresh air in. The paint is original and the seller claims there are only 14,237 miles on the dial. It’s listed on Auctions America  and featured here on Hemmings . It’s going to be in the Auctions America event being held September 2nd through the 6th and expected to sell for between $25k and $30. That will just be the first small outlay if the new owner is going to restore it. It would be interesting to know what someone finally does with this old Packard. And this is a first, we had several readers send this in all within just a few minutes of each other, so special thanks to Charles H, Steve Y, and Robert R for the tip!

left front

How fun is that. The little kidney-shaped window at the back has a slight concave curve for even more whimsy. This would be amazing used at an historic resort, shuttling guests into town or down to the lake for rides in old wooden boats – perhaps an elegant logo emblazoned on the driver and front passenger doors in gold leaf.

That is so cool! Yes, it would be less than useless for most people and cost too much to restore — I can see it in, say, cream over dark red — but it would be all kinds of fun to take out for the occasional party, or simply to amaze your friends.

And, as far as performance potential, I’m sure it could attain a “dignified” speed when all spiffed up. You probably wouldn’t want to take it faster than that, anyway.

You certainly wouldn’t meet yourself coming the other way down the road!

the same basic design was used by White Motor Company for tourist buses in Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. The grill on these buses was pure Packard design, the main difference that I can tell, is the White buses only had doors on the right side of the bus, otherwise, pretty much identical.

It his is nothing like a White, The Whites were built on truck chassis and this fine old girl is built on a limo car chassis. It would be fascinating to learn the history of her. There are pretty good records on Packards. It may not be a factory job though. Many commercial cars like this were done by custom builders after they left the factory. In any event, she is grand. I could see her being used as a car for a fancy New England resort, maby ferrying people from the train depot.

Think Bing Crosby and White Christmas………

Dave, you are right about the chassis, and the rear end, I am not sure what the straight 8 White engine was different from the packard, but the buses had a heavier rear end, with dual wheels. But the rear of this body looks almost identical. The bodies are almost identical, was my point, with the open convertible roof for sightseeing. I know one guy who is really into these types of early “buses” especially ones associated with Yellowstone.

White was a truck manufacturer by this time, they built some brass era cars but by the time this was built were solidly a truck manufacturer with an excellent line of there own engines. The White “Mustang” was used in trucks from 1 1/2 ton to full size semis. They had nothing to do with Packard. I am sure that commercial cars could have been built by the same contractors and have similar design. Packard quit building trucks in the early 20’s. I have a 1920 Packard 3 ton truck that we are beginning restoration on next year and have owned several White trucks. I love the White grills. They were good trucks that were taken out by the war, like Reos and other smaller manufacturers. Most were such good trucks that they were used hard, eventually worn out and scrapped. Off course…….everyone remembers the WW2 White half tracks. The French used them into the 90’s. I don’t think White built a straight 8, mine have always been 6’s and I have never seen an 8. There were some with other makers diesels though,

This is likely not on a standard Packard 1908 (model #) limo chassis, but rather a commercial chassis, that was then lengthened. If you look at the fender grills just below the hood edges [top of the fender], you will note the standard junior Packard chrome molding with the round Packard crest. To the rear of the crest is another chrome piece. That piece was ONLY used on Packard vehicles with custom bodies by Henney Motor Co., of Freeport Indiana. That means this is what is known as a Henney-Packard.

This is not a Super 8 chassis but a Packard 120 [small eight] chassis, as evidenced by the shorter front end and the 120 taillights down near the bumper. As for the 356 engine [the 9 main bearing Super 8 engine], that will not fit in the 120 chassis without modifying the front end sheetmetal, increasing it’s length by several inches to move the radiator support forward. That has not been done to this vehicle. Since the 3 sizes of Packard straight 8 engines [288, 327, & 356 use the same headgasket, it’s likely the engine has a 356 cylinder head with slightly higher compression.

So it’s a 1941 Henney-Packard 8 door, likely made for an airport or resort hotel. Would love to have it in my collection.

90s tour bus

The HENNEY Motor Company was in Freeport Illinois, NOT Indiana. I Live about 5 miles from the Factory.

This ol gal is known as Miss Sequoia. She was purchased new in 1941, believed to be the last Packard acquired by the tour service. She remained a part of Smoky Mountain National Park Tours Company fleet until late in 1955 when she was retired and loaned to Eliada Home For Children, the local orphange in Asheville, NC.

more info at Smoky Mountain Tour on facebook, also at Chauffuers, Couriers, Drivers & Dispatchers on facebook.

Man I love this one. I wish we would have had one of these in our big family back when I was a kid in the late 1950s. We all would have had a window seat except baby sister. Instead we had a worn out ford wagon that Dad had to work on all the time.

I’d love to drive this beast. So neat looking.

I agree it is quite a find, also in the same auction there are other Packards , which I already nailed a couple of ideas for this one . Yes, it could be used as a tour bus, but it would have to be for fair weather days, because of the expense to get it up to par . with this and other 40s vehicles, I take note that the tires look like truck tires . Hard to tell the actual color, but to bring the interior up to present day comfort standards you wouldn’t want it with a performance engine, but it would need to get out of its own way it would be a looker with an ultra shiny paint job, I like the idea of the shiny hubcaps . Somebody with more imagination than I would come up for a use for it but it would sure attract attention!

I’m gonna nominate this one as BF of the year.

Nomination noted!

The doors on the back, when open, look like the entrance to the cars basement. Like Pete said, BF of the year.

That’s two nominations! A couple more and I think we will have to award it the title of Barn Find of the Year!

I live in warren ohio.home of the packard and would love to see that rusty gold come home

Would make a kewl resort/hotel airport limo or a tourist vehicle for an historic city such as Key West Fla…

Two words: TRAVELING BAND!

Especially perfect for a country/western, bluegrass or folksy type group! ^_^

Wedding parties.

They produce cars in 1941? Wasn’t that war time production?

Not until December 7th, 1941… the day that would live in infamy. Plus, 1941 models would’ve begun in 1940.

Here’s a fantastic article I just found detailing some of the timeline, and how automakers and dealers spent those war years…

http://www.autonews.com/article/20111031/CHEVY100/310319970/no-new-cars-but-that-didnt-stop-u.s.-automakers-dealers-during-wwii

No. Wartime production started after January 1942. We didn’t declare war on Japan until December 8, 1941.

90s tour bus

The recurring traveling band in Mayberry (Bobby Fleet and his Band with a Beat) drove a similar ride:

This is a cool find. I saw this on Hemmings. As far as the canvas top, with 12 people, it’s more like open the top and let the stinky air out. ( I’m sure the food at the “lodge” didn’t agree with someone) As others have said, this was probably just a shuttle vehicle and probably never used for long trips. Quite a project, for sure.

You can’t award BF of the year in August! What if something even more wonderful comes along in December? It’s like awarding the batting title before the season is over.

Sort of like a Nobel Prize to a New untested President…………..

A company that leases cars to movie makers cd use this… its a great find… impractical as hell but fun!

Would make a great car Transporter for a small vintage racer ! Keep the second row of seats

90s tour bus

There are a group of Packard enthusiast’s who think that regardless of the history sold with the car that this vehicle actually was built and owned by Smoky Mountain Tours Co of Asheville,NC. If you compare the attachment below with the shot of the Packard posted you will see the number #25 on both.I also have an article from the July 1,1941 Asheville Citizen Times about a Packard Super 8 160 hp 12 passenger bus purchased by Smoky Mountain Tours picked up at the Henny plant in Freeport, Illinois the week before. My guess is the mileage is at least 114,000 if not more. Still hope the new buyer gets it finished and would love to see it restores to original!

Hi Steve, we are the proud owners of the Packard. The car has #25 on several places. Can you send me the Infos and scans of the magazine you have. After inspecting the enginecomponents and the Transmission we also think that 14.000 miles are impossible.

90s tour bus

Hey Michael, Sorry for the delay! just saw this. My email is [email protected] . If you will email me I will send you some other stuff!

90s tour bus

Now in Croatia!

Edo; Please join both the Packard club (PAC), and the Professional Car Society (PCS). Keep us updated on what happens with this giant! If possible can you provide the VIN for the car so I can identify the model/series? My email address is my name without spaces, @ aol.com. Thanks!

Great!! It has gone to someone who will [evidently] appreciate it and [evidently] has the money to restore it.

90s tour bus

Re: 1941 Packard 90 – Steve Bryson’s comments above are correct, except it carried 10 passengers plus the driver. Smoky Mountain Tours [SMT] of Asheville NC bought this from Packard in 1941. Except for the WWII years it was operated by SMT through their 1955 season. It was the newest vintage Packard bus operated by SMT and the last to be in service by SMT. SMT had an interesting variety of stretched-out Packards, some up to 17-passengers that had a 3rd ‘pony’ axle mounted on a turntable to hold up the rear end. See my attachment. Steve Bryson, still living in Asheville, and his brother Bob (Savannah GA), were the sons of Bob Bryson who worked for SMT as a driver and accountant until SMT discontinued business in 1969. My father, Jack Priedeman, bought SMT Dec 7, 1941, just in time to have that kind of business sidelined by the the US War Dept. until the fall of 1945. I worked as a gofer in the SMT garage for several high school and college summers. This No. 25 bus was my favorite Packard. For more information about SMT go to the Facebook pages under “Smoky Mountain Tours Company” and look at the various “Files” available there.

Amazing, Dan. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness to share all this info. Another example of a vehicle’s history being as interesting and important as the vehicle itself.

Hi Dan, that is amazing. CAn you send me your contact details. [email protected] The Packard is going to be finished in his SMT livery around November. Just checked the FB PAge and found 2 pictures of it. http://www.chromecars.de/fahrzeuge/1941-super-eight/

Michael Gross – Aug 23, 2016 I don’t understand what you want when you asked me to send “my contacts list.” What is the context of the contacts you want?

My total contacts list is >200 and I’m not willing to share that with anyone. My Smoky Mountain Tours Co. list has 20 – 25 names on it.

Questions – your email address @ .de sounds like it’s in Germany. Correct? Do you have information about where the 1941 Packard bus is now and what has been done to it in the way of restoration? I know for a fact that is was owned by Smoky Mountain Tours Co. [SMT] of Asheville NC from 1941 until 1955. My father owned SMT during that time and I worked in his company’s garage during some high school and college summers

I don’t know its history from 1955 through 2014, when it was sold at auction in Indiana and was to be shipped to Germany.

I’d like its current location and contact if you are willing to share that with me.

I wanted your contact to call you to maybe get more info about #25. The car is with me in Germany

You guys don’t drift off into personal emails. Keep the rest of us posted on what has happened to the car, or maybe set up a facebook page. What a great story.

Mike: There is a Facebook page if anyone is interested. It is Smoky Mountain Tours Company! Thanks, Steve Bryson

Pictures can`t be sent here. That needs to be with personal emails. I will update the information here http://www.chromecars.de/fahrzeuge/1941-super-eight/

Smoky Mountain Tours Co. http://oldcarandtruckpictures.com/OldTrucks/indexMotorhomes.html

If I had the funds, I would buy it, have it restored and donate it to the Fort Lauderdale Packard museum. It would be a wonderful addition to the collection.

That vehicle was bought at Indy Auction in 2014 and shipped to Germany where Chrome Cars was rebuilding it. I’ve asked them for updates on it restoration and next location; they have not responded Originally it was Smoky Mountain Tours Co, Asheville NC bus #25. The company was owned by my father J.H. (Jack)Priedeman. If I knew how, I’d send you some pix of some of their other stretched out Packard roll-top buses, 10, 13 and 17 passenger version. The 13-and 17-passenger versions had a third, rear axle mounted on a turntable to accommodate curves needed to hold up to back end. If you’d like send me your email address and I’ll forward some pix. – [email protected] Dan Priedeman, Columbus Ohio

Dan, I was also in contact with the people doing the restoration in Germany, and like you, I’ve heard nothing for a long time. Hope that just means they don’t need anything else from me and the restoration is slowly going forward!

Hi bill, you seem to know a lot about these stretched commercial chassis. Want to know if you have heard of 1940 Henney packered 890L. It’s wheelbase is almost 160”,and the frame has appears to have factory extensions

10 popular '90s artists going on tour in 2024

The pioneering boy band got their start in the late '80s, but NKOTB is still synonymous with...

( Stacker ) - Every era seems to make a comeback decades later, and as of the late 2010s, the 1990s revival has officially been in full swing. In the past several years, we’ve seen fashion trends like Adidas slides and bucket hats become stylish again, while studios have rebooted popular ‘90s movies, like the “Scream” franchise, and TV shows like “Saved by the Bell” and “Full House”—and it doesn’t stop there.

Reunion tours have also seen a resurgence, with ‘90s artists ranging from TLC and the Fugees to Blondie stepping foot on stage for the first time in years. Fans are willing to fork out big bucks to see their favorite groups get back together, and many artists are capitalizing on the interest, while others would rather generate buzz about a potential reunion (we’re looking at you, ‘N Sync).

There are also ‘90s bands that never stopped touring and are now cashing in on nostalgia in other ways, like album anniversary tours.

This year sees the trend continue, with Creed announcing their first shows in 12 years and Blink-182 continuing their highly anticipated reunion tour with Tom DeLonge. Other acts, like Weezer and Sarah McLachlan, are celebrating milestone album anniversaries in big ways, and New Kids on the Block are reprising their famous “Magic Summer” tour.

To help original fans and younger crowds discover these artists for the first time, Stacker compiled a list of 10 popular ‘90s artists going on tour in 2024 with the help of music publications and press releases. Read on to see who’s hitting the road this year and what makes their tour special.

90s tour bus

In October 2023, Creed surprised fans by announcing their first tour in over a decade. Billed as the “Summer of ‘99 Tour,” the post-grunge band plans to hit the road in 2024 for a 40-show run featuring fellow ‘90s rockers 3 Doors Down as support for most shows.

“I feel like I’m as strong as I’ve ever been vocally, and looking forward to sharing the stage with the guys again,” frontman Scott Stapp said in a statement about the tour. “The fans have clearly let us know they feel it’s long overdue. I want to give them what they deserve. I’m ready to bring it.”

Creed released four studio albums between 1997 and 2009. Their sophomore album, 1999′s “Human Clay,” helped them reach superstar status and has sold 11.7 million copies.

Hootie & the Blowfish

Before becoming a country sensation in 2008, rocker Darius Rucker fronted Hootie & the Blowfish. The band’s 1994 debut album, “Cracked Rear View,” catapulted them into mainstream fame and is still among the top 10 best-selling albums in U.S. history, nearly 30 years after its release.

The alt-rockers announced in November 2023 that they’re hitting the road on the “Summer Camp With Trucks Tour” in 2024, accompanied by fellow ‘90s stars Collective Soul as well as musician Edwin McCain. The 43-date North American trek is Hootie & the Blowfish’s first tour since 2019.

Hootie guitarist Mark Bryan reminisced about the band’s previous adventures, recalling McCain likening the experience of touring with the band to “summer camp with trucks.” That experience is “exactly how we want next year to feel, too,” Bryan said in a statement about the upcoming shows.

90s tour bus

Shania Twain

Shania Twain is gearing up to spend the latter half of 2024 in Las Vegas, performing her 24-date “Come On Over” residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino’s Bakkt Theater. This is quite a comeback, considering the country star went nearly a decade without singing at all after contracting Lyme disease in 2003. In 2011, after undergoing two “open-throat” surgeries, Twain could project her voice again—and that’s a reason to celebrate, for both Twain and her fans.

Twain reflected on her overwhelming success in the late ‘90s and early 2000s, telling Billboard, “It’s funny, because I don’t have very vivid memories of that time, because it was such a whirlwind.” After releasing 1997′s “Come On Over,” Twain said: “It was single after single, and video after video. It was as if I couldn’t keep up. … I was hands-on with everything, and it exhausted me. So I didn’t get to enjoy a lot of it in the moment. But I’m celebrating now.”

“Come On Over” produced seven #1 singles and is the bestselling album by a solo woman artist in history.

90s tour bus

In 2022, Blink-182 set fans into a frenzy when they reunited with guitarist Tom DeLonge after a seven-year hiatus and announced a 2023 world tour. After DeLonge’s departure from the band in 2015, Blink continued releasing music and touring with Matt Skiba, but 2023 marked the first time the band’s classic lineup took the stage together in nearly a decade. That same year, they released a new album called “One More Time” and will be touring the world again in 2024.

While the reunion news was happy, the reason behind it was less so: Bassist Mark Hoppus was diagnosed with cancer in 2021, and his illness is what rekindled his relationship with DeLonge.

“When he told me he was sick, that’s the gnarliest… like, nothing matters, really,” DeLonge recalled in a trailer promoting “One More Time.” “It wasn’t about fame or money or how big Blink was or anything, it was like, ‘You’re gonna get through this s—, and we’re gonna go dominate.’” Hoppus announced he was cancer-free in September 2021.

This isn’t the first time Blink’s classic lineup has reunited since Travis Barker joined the band in 1998. They also took an extended hiatus in 2005 before reuniting four years later.

90s tour bus

Sarah McLachlan

Sarah McLachlan is hitting the road in 2024 for the first time since 2016 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of her 1993 album “Fumbling Towards Ecstasy.” The 30-date tour will see the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter play her third album, plus some other hits.

“It’s such a fun concept to play a record start to finish,” she told Today.com about the anniversary tour, describing “Fumbling Towards Ecstasy” as her “personal favorite” and “the easiest record I ever wrote.”

The album features singles like “Good Enough,” “Possession,” and “Hold On” and was the Canadian musician’s first album to enter the U.S. charts.

90s tour bus

Green Day is going all out in 2024 with a tour that celebrates three albums: their latest record, “Saviors”; 2004′s “American Idiot”; and 1994′s “Dookie.” “The Saviors Tour” promises to harken back to the ‘90s, with the Smashing Pumpkins, the Linda Lindas, and Rancid accompanying the band as support for the North American leg.

“Dookie” was Green Day’s breakthrough album, featuring the singles “Welcome to Paradise,” “Basket Case,” “Longview,” and “When I Come Around.” It’s the third album in their discography, and “Saviors” marks their 14th.

90s tour bus

Yes, Pantera originated in the ‘80s, but it was their 1990 album “Cowboys from Hell” that transformed the band from glam rock nobodies into metal icons, launching them into superstardom. Thirteen years after “Cowboys,” the band split acrimoniously, and a reunion didn’t seem to be in the cards—especially after the deaths of founding members and brothers “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott in 2004 and Vinnie Paul Abbott in 2018.

After a handful of shows in 2022, however, a full-blown reunion took place in 2023 and is continuing in 2024. Guitarist Zakk Wylde and drummer Charlie Benante will join longtime members Phil Anselmo and Rex Brown to celebrate the legacies of the late founding members.

“Only thing I can say is, man, I know for a d— fact Vince and Dime would want us to do this, hands down,” Anselmo told The Metallica Report podcast of the reunion. “They would want the Pantera brand or the legacy to go on. And I don’t know what you believe in, but sometimes, you know, you would like to think that them old fellas are looking down on us, giving us the thumbs-up.”

90s tour bus

New Kids on the Block

Before there was ‘N Sync or the Backstreet Boys, there was New Kids on the Block. The pioneering boy band got their start in the late ‘80s, but NKOTB is still synonymous with the ‘90s. This year, they’re celebrating that era with the “Magic Summer 2024″ tour, kicking off in June.

The string of shows is a callback to the group’s 1990 “Magic Summer Tour” and will feature support from two other ‘90s icons: Paula Abdul and DJ Jazzy Jeff.

“The true ‘magic’ of this tour is in the music, the moments and the memories that we get to create—and recreate—with our amazing fans each night,” NKOTB’s Donnie Wahlberg said in a statement. “Feeling all the nostalgic feels of the original Magic Summer, with the bond that we’ve shared throughout the years, will make for a most magical time indeed.”

90s tour bus

Slipknot played their first show at the end of 1995 under the moniker Meld, but it was the release of their 1999 self-titled debut album that solidified their place as metal icons. With 2024 marking the album’s 25th anniversary, the masked rockers have big plans: Slipknot has already announced a handful of U.S. festival dates, along with a European and U.K. tour. And according to founding member Shawn “Clown” Crahan, that’s not all fans can expect in 2024.

When asked in a recent interview if Slipknot plans to play the album in full on tour, the percussionist had a blunt response. “Are you joking right now? You’re talking about the anniversary of one of the greatest metal albums to ever release in the thought process known as reality,” Crahan told Kerrang! “You think for one moment that this album isn’t going to be played in its entirety in front of, like, a hundred people, 200 people, 300 people, 50,000 people. I’m not going to live forever, man. Neither is everybody else. Things are changing very quickly. I ain’t got no more time to f— around.”

He also suggested the band would be playing some surprise shows this year too. “We’re going to have fun, too. So that means small shows and you won’t know until you hear it. And if you heard it, you’re already too late and you’re not going to see it. So you better open up your soul, because then you’ll feel it and you won’t have to hear it, because I’m being very serious,” he said. “It’s really going to be an exciting 2024, and I think things are going to happen that you wouldn’t think ever could.”

90s tour bus

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Weezer’s self-titled debut album, famously known as “The Blue Album,” and it sounds like they’re scheming something exciting—they just haven’t revealed what it is yet.

“We are going to give it its due respect and come out with a really amazing deluxe package with a bunch of additional material, and of course, we’ve gotta do some kind of epic tour,” frontman Rivers Cuomo told Collider.

The alt-rock heroes are scheduled to play the Shaky Knees festival in Atlanta this May and have a handful of U.K. tour dates with the Smashing Pumpkins in June, but other than that, 2024 is a clean slate. There might be a reason for that. “I think the public tour dates cut off in June and then there’s this very suspicious blank space in our calendar for months after that,” Cuomo said, “so I’d keep your eye on that.”

“The Blue Album” features two of Weezer’s biggest hits: “Say It Ain’t So” and “Undone (The Sweater Song).”

  • DebbJ 0 contributions 4.0 of 5 bubbles Great way to get oriented to Moscow We started our Moscow experience with the hop on hop off. It was a great way to get orientated to the city. The additional optional tours were also good, we did the Metro tour which I highly recommend, we also paid for the Kremlin tour. The hop on hop off has three different lines all included. Only fault was the bus was sometimes full and you had to wait for the next one which was about 15 minutes (in the cold). Read more Written January 6, 2020
  • UmaDelhi 0 contributions 5.0 of 5 bubbles 2 days are required Very very good audio guides- the voice quality was also good and also the anecdotes of history were brilliant. Russia is truly beautiful Read more Written September 1, 2019
  • BeverleyT 0 contributions 1.0 of 5 bubbles Boat trip - TERRIBLE We got on the bus, but couldn’t buy a 1 day ticket. They suggested we do the 1 hour boat trip and said they would drop us to the dock. 1) they dropped us in the wrong place 2) they were lost because of the marathon Then the boat, after we finally found it: 1) stinking fumes, actually gagging 2) no commentary, in fact, no interaction unless you begged 3) offered us 2 for 1 icecreams as they had melted and refrozen as the fridge gets turned off at night Honestly, we enjoyed the afternoon in the boat but spent all of it laughing at just how awful it was!!! The worst thing in Moscow! Read more Written August 18, 2019
  • niruDurbs 0 contributions 3.0 of 5 bubbles Not the best value for the price The ticket is quite expensive and covers three different routes in a 24 hour period. The red route is quite exciting and takes about an hour. The bus comes every 10 to 15 minutes. However the other two routes take about two hours each and buses come every 30 to 40 minute period. If the bus is full then you have to wait at the stop for the next bus. So personally I feel that not much can be seen this way. I definitely was not impressed. However it must be noted that one can learn a lot about the history of Moscow Read more Written July 3, 2019
  • IrishCueTravel 0 contributions 1.0 of 5 bubbles SLO Motion Not all their fault , but if you plan on trying this Attraction be patient! Traffic is a big problem first and foremost. But to add additional unnecessary delays; the bus stops at each site for 15 minutes at a time or More ! I gave up half way through ( 45 minutes) ; and walked back to the starting point in 10 minutes! Read more Written June 4, 2019
  • michael g 0 contributions 1.0 of 5 bubbles Worst hop on/hop off EVER Waited for 40 minutes in the cold rain for a bus that never came... unacceptable. Traffic is so bad that when on a bus the previos day it was barely moving. My advice-get a subway pass and a good travel guide book and do sightseeing on your own! Read more Written October 24, 2018
  • Rebecca J 0 contributions 3.0 of 5 bubbles Boat element was excellent We purchased a ticket online for the boat and bus for 2 days. The boat element was wonderful, we saw some amazing parts of Moscow along the river side. The bus element was very disappointing as it only started at 10am and was finished by 6:30pm. It was extremely warm when we were there and it would have been great to do the tour in the cool of the day. There was also no air conditioning in the down stairs part of the bus. They also turned away passengers at one of the stops as the bus was full and there was not another bus for 40 minutes. Read more Written September 26, 2018

  • Peter F 0 contributions 3.0 of 5 bubbles Two Routes There is a short red route which depending on the traffic takes about an hour. The route is generally around the Red Square area. The ear phones were small and sometimes the commentary did not link up with the sites you were seeing. The green bus takes you on a longer route and ours took two and a half hours due to the heavy traffic. I would not recommend this trip unless it is raining or you want to fill in time. The sights we saw were nothing outstanding with plenty of time at certain stops for photos. Also the driver stop for a bite to eat at one stop. Read more Written July 30, 2018

The girl on the picture-light blue bag-ask for 100 Rubles for show her the QR Code while I had the Booking and PIN number cause she must see the vessel name-Didn’t say nothing and after she said board any vessel.

The traffic is quite heavy so it is a bit slow but there is not a lot they can do about it. We only did the red route. Just a note people don’t queue here when the bus comes it’s a bit of a free for all. Read more Written July 13, 2018
  • Daniyal91 0 contributions 3.0 of 5 bubbles Was Ok.! Started our tour of moscow from here, We had got the 2 Day Pass with the boat ride. The route and the map was good but not well managed. The bus didn't stop at many points. Were were unaware a couple of times at what point we were and missed them. Headphones and maps were provided. Would recommend one should check out the route map before going and decide which places to stop in advance, this way one can manage and enjoy the tour more and us it more effectively.! The boat ride was Ok, a little crowded. No guide provided, just a boat ride with restaurant service Read more Written July 12, 2018
  • WilliamDyer 0 contributions 1.0 of 5 bubbles Poor service on boat and too many waiting times on buses For the price, you should expect at minimum English speaking tour guides with decent experience, but at least in my case that did not happen both in buses and boats. And in the boat even tough we were 90% English speaking tourist at least, the tour guide spoke 95% of the time in Russia, and only 3 sentences in English, I really counted how many times she spoke in English. And at the end she asks us if we have any questions? Of course I told her I couldn’t ask her anything since I didn’t understand 95% of what she was saying. The boat tour is not worth it, just take the bus that would be my advice. Second minus is the waiting times, in the boat they made us wait an hour before it departed, and in many stops with the buses waiting times of 20-30 minutes. I actually think I lost that day around 2 hours doing nothing. Be careful. Read more Written July 10, 2018

The birth of MTV in 1981 changed the game of the music industry. The art form of the music video was born and the importance of image became even more powerful. Nothing defined this new art form like Michael Jackson’s 1982 music video for “Thriller”. Produced in partnership with MTV, the video set viewers’ expectations high with its technically advanced visual narrative, massive budget and Hollywood director.

  • RELATED: Here are some of the most common song titles of all time

The ’90s was a decade filled with music videos that both challenged and delighted the viewer. Some pushed boundaries and some were unlike anything we’d ever seen before. A single video could take an underground emerging genre to the masses; it could ignite fashion trends and inspire technological and design innovation; it could act as a political statement or a glimpse into another world but ultimately, it could sell millions of records.

Below is our list of 25 music videos that are iconic in their ability to capture the essence of ’90s pop culture.

“Freedom! ’90” – George Michael (1990)

Nothing really says ’90s like George Michael’s “Freedom! ’90” music video. After stating he would never step in front of a camera again, Michael cast iconic ’90s supermodels Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Tatjana Patitz in his video after being inspired by Peter Lindbergh’s 1990 British Vogue cover . Instead of playing love interests, Michael was the first to have supermodels play the lead role of a music video.

Michael’s struggle with fame can be seen throughout the video as his signature props from his breakout single “Faith” video (the leather jacket, guitar and jukebox) ignite in flames as the word “freedom” is repeated.

“Smells Like Teen Spirit” – Nirvana (1991)

No video harnessed the essence of the ’90s grunge era like Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Set in a high school gym, the video’s premise is an anarchist pep rally. Nirvana fans volunteered to fill the bleachers but after being on set for 12 hours, they were irritated and restless. Near the end of shooting, Cobain suggested they trash the set and the iconic footage reflecting raw teen angst and destruction was captured. While the single wasn’t expected to be a hit, audiences immediately responded to the song and requested the video so often Nirvana ended up winning Best New Artist and Best Alternative Group at the MTV Music Video Awards.

“Smells Like Teen Spirit” is Nirvana’s biggest hit having reached platinum status. The song earned Nirvana two Grammy nominations (Best Hard Rock Performance with Vocal and Best Rock Song) and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of “The Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll” in 1997.

“Cryin'” – Aerosmith (1993)

You can’t think of ’90s music videos and not picture Alicia Silverstone flipping the bird to her ex-boyfriend as she jumps off an overpass. Everything about this video screams ’90s: plaid shirts, Doc Martens, t-shirt dresses, belly-button piercings (the video is said to have sparked the naval piercing craze), not to mention 16-year-old Alicia Silverstone herself. “Cryin'” was the first of three Aerosmith videos for Silverstone including “Amazing” (1993) with Jason London and “Crazy” (1994) with Liv Tyler (1994).

“Praise You” – Fatboy Slim (1999)

Spike Jonze’s 1999 video for “Praise You” was the first glimpse of the concept of a flash mob. The craze would begin later in the 2000s with the emergence of YouTube but in 1999, no one had seen anything like it. After sending Fatboy Slim his solo dance video for “The Rockafeller Skank”, Jonze landed creative control for the “Praise You” video. Shot on a camcorder in guerrilla style, assistant director Roman Coppola recorded Jonze (performing as “Richard Koufey”) leading the fictional Torrence Community Dance Group in a routine outside of a California movie theatre. Fatboy Slim can be seen at the end of the video when he looks into the camera as Jonze describes his “b-boy moves.”

“Nothing Compares 2 U” – Sinéad O’Connor (1990)

Sinéad O’Connor’s video for her version of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” is one of the most iconic videos of all time. The intimate video won multiple awards at the MTV Music Video Awards including the coveted Video of the Year Award making O’Connor the first ever female recipient. The power of “Nothing Compares 2 U” lies in its loneliness: the dark empty background, grim lighting, footage of O’Connor walking alone through Paris’s Parc de Saint-Cloud and most effectively, the extended closeup shots that intensify the emotion that floods her face. The moment her real tears appear and fall down her face makes this video captivating 27 years later.

“Big Me” – Foo Fighters (1996)

The video for the Foo Fighters’ single “Big Me” captures two moments in ’90s pop culture history: cringeworthy Mentos commercials and the emergence of the Foo Fighters. After writing and recording the entire debut Foo Fighters album himself in an effort to heal from the death of Kurt Cobain, the self-titled record was the first music most Nirvana fans heard from Grohl. While much of the album stays true to the grunge-rock genre, “Big Me” is something completely different. The fourth single is ultra pop and became a crossover hit for the band. Embracing the jingle-like melody of the single, the band agreed to a parody video concept. Replacing Mentos with Footos, the band mocked the corny Mentos commercials and created what would be the first in their series of hilarious music videos.

“Waterfalls” – TLC (1995)

TLC’s second No. 1 single came with 1995’s “Waterfalls.” Written by Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez, Organized Noise, and Marqueze Etheridge, “Waterfalls” deals with the widespread ’90s issues of HIV/AIDS, drug crime and drug-related murder rates. “Waterfalls” is said to be the first No. 1 song in which the AIDS epidemic is specifically referenced in the lyrics.

“Criminal” – Fiona Apple (1997)

“Criminal” was one of the most controversial videos of the ’90s. Although it was the fifth single from Fiona Apple’s debut album Tidal , it was the breakout track of the record. Scenes of an extremely thin 19-year-old Apple shedding her clothing, laying in the laps of half-naked men and lying naked in a bathtub sparked slut-shaming against her in the media as well as accusations of promoting the gaunt heroin-chic body trend of the ’90s. Apple defended her video by revealing in 1998 that after she was raped at age 12, she had developed an eating disorder in order to get “rid of the bait that was attached to my body” and that doing the “Criminal” video was a way for her to face her insecurities .

“Everybody Hurts” – R.E.M. (1993)

Written by R.E.M. drummer Bill Berry, “Everybody Hurts” addressed the issue of suicide, the sixth-highest cause of death in the U.S. at the time. Focused on the message of the song, director Jake Scott (son of director Ridley Scott) displayed subtitles of the lyrics throughout the subtitled thoughts of strangers who sit stuck in a traffic jam. As thoughts like, “You die. You turn to dust,” “I’ll talk when I want to,” and “Leave me alone” appear, Berry’s empathetic lyrics respond on the screen with phrases like, “sometimes everybody cries” and “everybody hurts sometimes.” As the chorus repeats “hold on,” everyone gets out of their cars and disappears walking the Texas Interstate together.

“Sabotage” – Beastie Boys (1994)

Spike Jonze upped the ante of the badass Beastie Boys track “Sabotage” with the visual element of ’70s-style cop show action sequences. The combination of Jonze’s camera angles, car stunts, and chase scenes are the perfect visuals for the explosiveness of the song’s dynamics. The retro costumes, wigs and moustaches worn by The Beastie Boys as they portray various fictional characters gives the video a ridiculous humour making it even more engaging to watch. After losing in each of the five categories the video was nominated in at the 1994 MTV Music Video Awards, MCA rushed the stage in his Nathaniel Hornblower disguise from the video and interrupted Michael Stipe’s speech, protesting the fact that “Sabotage” had failed to receive any awards. 15 years later the video won the Best Video (That Should Have Won a Moonman) Award.

“Buddy Holly” – Weezer (1994)

Spike Jonze strikes again with the nostalgia-soaked Weezer video for “Buddy Holly.” With its hand claps and lyrical references to ’50s icons Mary Tyler Moore and Buddy Holly, the video is right at home in Arnold’s Diner from the set of Happy Days . After tirelessly sorting through episode footage, Jonze edited clips of the cast around actor Al Molinaro’s cameo and footage of the band creating a seamless blend of three eras: ’90s music, ’70s television, and ’50s fashion.

“Karma Police” – Radiohead (1997)

Radiohead’s music video for “Karma Police” is one of the band’s most memorable music videos. Director Jonathan Glazer (who also directed “Street Spirit (Fade Out) “), called the video a failure at the time, explaining that his attempt to have subjective, minimalist camera use and to create something hypnotic and dramatic from a single perspective wasn’t achieved. Fans disagree. 20 years later, the video is still as captivating as it was in 1997. It was reported that Glazer had originally pitched the video idea to Marilyn Manson. Luckily fate intervened saving the concept for the well-matched lyrics of “Karma Police.” From the perspective of the driver’s seat, we participate in the hunting down of a man running from the car on a country road as Thom Yorke loosely mouths the lyrics in the back seat. After finally collapsing, the man realizes the car is leaking fuel and sets the car ablaze as the viewer’s last perspective is from within the burning car. Yorke himself collapsed during the making of the video. Rumour spread that the lethargic Yorke had been accidentally inhaling carbon monoxide through the car’s air-conditioning system and that after filming he fainted and nearly died.

“Around The World” – Daft Punk (1997)

The music video for Daft Punk’s “Around The World” is immediately mesmerizing in its design and intricate choreography. Directed by Michel Gondry (also known for The Chemical Brothers’ “Let Forever Be” , Bjork’s “Bachelorette” and “Everlong” by the Foo Fighters), the video features groups of dancers representing the different instruments in the song: The robots represent the singing voice, the tall athletes in tracksuits with small prosthetic heads symbolize the bass guitar, the synchronized swimmers represent the high-pitched keyboard, the skeletons symbolize the guitar line and the mummies represent the drum machine. Gondry wrote in the liner notes of his DVD set, “If I had to pick one of my videos to be the favorite one, this one could do.”

“Roller Coaster” – Red Hot Chili Peppers (1996)

Two icons of the ’90s joined forces in 1996: Red Hot Chili Peppers and Beavis and Butt-Head. Created for the soundtrack of Beavis and Butt-Head Do America , the Red Hot Chili Peppers covered “Love Rollercoaster” — a funk original by the Ohio Players in 1975. The animated video captures the reckless rock-and-roll reputations of both the cartoon duo and the band (with Jane’s Addiction’s Dave Navarro replacing guitarist John Frusciante) as Flea free-falls off a roller-coaster, Beavis breathes fire, Butt-head destroys a city, head-banging ensues and they all end up naked in the end of the animated ’90s chaos.

“Bitter Sweet Symphony” – The Verve (1997)

Who knew a dude walking down a street could be so enthralling? What makes the video for The Verve’s “Bitter Sweet Symphony” so effective is its direction. Created as an homage to Massive Attack’s “Unfinished Sympathy” , director Walter A. Stern created the feel of a single continuous shot with over 50 takes. Lead singer Richard Ashcroft walks down a London street without changing his pace or direction bumping fellow pedestrians, knocking a woman onto the ground, walking over the hood of a car, only stopping once for a moving car in his path. The video ends with the rest of the band joining him and becomes the shot that would be the starting point for their next music video, “The Drugs Don’t Work.”

“Let Forever Be” – The Chemical Brothers feat. Noel Gallagher (1999)

Daft Punk director Michel Gondry returns to our list for the stunning visual of “Let Forever Be” by The Chemical Brothers featuring Noel Gallagher. Gondry created a mind-blowing kaleidoscopic dream world in which a girl’s nightmares are visualized with elements of surrealism, Busby Berkeley -inspired choreography and the manipulation of dimension and scale. Instead of using digital effects to depict multiplying objects, Gondry used real objects, dancers and choreography to create the flaring and kaleidoscope effects throughout the video.

“Virtual Insanity” – Jamiroquai (1996)

Director Jonathan Glazer appears on our list again for the mind-bending music video for “Virtual Insanity.” Jamiroquai’s most well known video, it blew the MTV Music Video Awards away with 10 nominations and four wins including Breakthrough Video, Video of the Year, Best Cinematography and Best Special Effects. Throughout the video Jamiroquai’s Jay Kay glides along a floor that appears to move in all directions underneath of him while furniture slides around the room. Though the floor appears to be moving throughout the video, it is actually the set that moves, creating an optical illusion. While the moving set manipulates the space, Jay Kay’s presence and smooth choreography creates a focal point for the viewer that only adds to the fascination of the video. Watch Glazer describe how he made “Virtual Insanity.” here

“No Rain” – Blind Melon (1993)

Two words: Bee Girl. Blind Melon’s “No Rain” became one of the most played music videos on MTV in its time thanks to Heather DeLoach’s portrayal of a little tap-dancing girl in a homemade bee costume. The video begins with the girl being laughed at after she performs a tap dance at a talent show. After crying onstage she wanders the streets meeting strangers until she eventually comes a gated field where Blind Melon is playing. Seeing a group of people dancing in bee costumes, the girl is overjoyed to have found people like her. Although the song has an upbeat melody, the lyrics of “No Rain” deal with themes of loneliness, depression and the longing for happiness. The little girl’s journey throughout the video reflects both emotional elements of the song – the yearning to feel accepted as well as the joy felt in the music itself. The “No Rain” video inspired Pearl Jam’s 1994 song, “Bee Girl.”

“Doo-Wop (That Thing)” – Lauryn Hill (1998)

Lauryn Hill’s video for “Doo-Wop (That Thing)” is an ode to the roots of the neo soul movement with the visualization of both ’60s soul and ’90s hip-hop culture. Shot with a split screen, the video portrays block parties from two different eras. The Lauryn on the left is the doo-wop queen singing the soft backing vocals and performing choreographed dance moves while the Lauryn on the right delivers the song’s rap lyrics and has the swagger of a hip hop artist in her performance.

“Black or White” – Michael Jackson (1991)

Michael Jackson’s “Black or White” video was premiered simultaneously in 28 different countries, resulting in a record-breaking 500 million viewers. The “Black or White” video is full of ’90s pop culture with cameos by Tyra Banks, Cheers star George Wendt and Macaulay Culkin in a bedroom with posters of Bart Simpson and Wayne Gretzky. Described as “a rock ‘n’ roll dance song about racial harmony” by Jackson’s label Epic, the video features Jackson dancing with various cultures around the world. What made the video so memorable was the morphing technique used as actors of different races and genders sing the chorus and seamlessly transform into each other. The extended version of the video in which Jackson morphs out of a black panther and begins a 4 minute dance sequence in which he grabs his groin, zips up his pants, smashes windows, trashes a car and blows up an inn created controversy and caused networks to ban the last section of the video.

“Vogue” – Madonna (1990)

With her music video for “Vogue,” Madonna and director David Fincher brought the voguing scene from underground New York gay clubs to the mainstream. The song brought disco back from the dead and ushered house music into popular music. The video pays homage to photographer Horst P. Horst’s famous photographs from the ’30s as well as legends from Hollywood’s golden era as Madonna lists glamorous icons like Bette Davis, Ginger Rogers, and Grace Kelly in the lyrics. The iconic Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra designed for her Blonde Ambition Tour made its first public appearance in “Vogue.”

“Ironic” – Alanis Morissette (1996)

The video concept for “Ironic” is super simple but, man, did it work. Nominated for six MTV Music Video Awards, the video took home three wins at the 1996 ceremony. The multiple versions of Morissette singing together in a car amplified the irresistible sing-along quality of the song’s chorus. After bursting onto the mid-’90s music scene with the intensity of “You Oughta Know” and “All I Really Want,” this light-hearted video was an extension of the playful lyrical style of Morissette’s third single, “Hand In My Pocket.” “Ironic” went on to win a Juno Award, two Grammy nominations and become Morissette’s highest-charting single to date.

“Wannabe” – Spice Girls (1997)

The Spice Girls stormed into the pop world with their video for “Wannabe” bringing their message of “Girl Power” with them. The video, completed in one continuous shot, captured the free-spirited, rambunctious energy of the all-girl group. Filmed in London, the video shows the girls crashing the Midland Grand Hotel dressed in the signature styles of their Spice Girl identities: Sporty, Scary, Ginger, Posh and Baby Spice. “Wannabe,” written in 30 minutes in their first professional songwriting session, was found to be the most recognizable song of the past 60 years according to a 2014 study by the University of Amsterdam . Their album, Spice , became the best-selling album by a female group in history and one of the most successful albums of all time. For a group whose original lineup was broken-up within two years of “Wannabe”‘s U.S. release, their domination of the pop world with two platinum albums and a feature film that broke the record for the highest-ever weekend debut on Super Bowl weekend grossing over 77 million dollars is pretty remarkable.

“My Name Is” – Eminem (1999)

The video for Eminem’s debut single “My Name Is” introduced the world to one of the most controversial entertainers in music history. Rapping lyrics like “I’ll f*ck anything that walks / When I was little I used to get so hungry I would throw fits / How you gonna breastfeed me mom, you ain’t got no tits,” viewers got the first taste of Eminem’s unapologetic abrasiveness. Released in 1999, the video acts as a mini 1990s time capsule with its references to Primus, Nine Inch Nails, Spice Girls, Pamela Lee (Anderson), Marilyn Manson, Usher and Bill Clinton. As he would in later videos , Eminem played multiple characters and celebrities while he acted out his graphic lyrics. Recorded in one take, the song earned Eminem his first Grammy Award as well as the MTV Music Video Award for Best New Artist in a Video.

“…Baby One More Time” – Britney Spears (1998)

Britney Spears has released 44 music videos and yet her debut in “…Baby One More Time” will forever be her legacy. The sexualized school girl uniform, the pink puffs in her pigtail braids, the dancing sequences, the midriff – Spears established her career with a hit song and an unforgettable image. The credit for the iconic concept and wardrobe of “…Baby One More Time” is due to 16-year-old Spears who pitched the ideas to director Nigel Dick after disapproving of his plan to create an animated video. Instead, the video takes place in Venice High School (the same high school where Grease was filmed) where Spears daydreams about dancing throughout the school in front of her crush (oddly played by her cousin, Abercromie & Fitch model Chad Spears). With its chart-topping status and platinum sales, “…Baby One More Time” immediately opened the floodgate for female teen pop stars. Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson and Mandy Moore all appeared on the music scene the following year. In 2008, Total Request Live named “…Baby One More Time” the most iconic music video of all time and chose it to be the last video ever to be played on the show. “…Baby One More Time” remains Britney Spears’s best-selling single with over 10 million copies sold making it one of the best-selling singles of all time.

Bands That Were In Tragic Accidents While Touring

ozzy osbourne looking crazed while performing, holding a microphone

There's nothing quite like the excitement that comes with an announcement that a favorite band is going on tour. There's the initial thrill, checking out the venues, then crossing your fingers in hopes more tour dates are going to be announced. The mad scramble for tickets, the hope of getting decent seats, and entering all the inevitable contests in hopes of scoring better seats ... it's a whole thing.

But sometimes, tours can go horribly wrong. Just consider how many shows any group is going to be playing, where they're located, and how much distance there is between gigs. Now, look at how much time they actually have to get from Point A to Point B ... then on to Points C, D, E ... and onward, usually for months at a time. They criss-cross the country and sometimes the world, and it's seriously impressive that they even know what city they're in. Most of the time, at least.

All that travel — and all that exhausted travel — makes it not entirely surprising that sometimes, there are horrible, life-altering accidents while on tour.

According to Ultimate Classic Rock , Metallica was in Sweden promoting their latest release — "Master of Puppets" — and heading to their next tour date when, just before 7 a.m. on September 27, 1986, the driver skidded on a patch of black ice and lost control. The tour bus flipped and threw bassist Cliff Burton through a window. What happened next is told differently by people on the scene, but they all agree that when the bus landed, it landed on top of Burton and killed the 24-year-old musician. There were, of course, questions as to whether the accident could have been prevented, but an investigation cleared the driver of any wrongdoing.

James Hetfield painted a heartbreaking picture of the accident, telling In the Studio : "Coming out and finding your buddy under the bus is not something you want to go through. Our first reaction was anger. ... Why did this happen? ... There were screams from the crew who were still trapped in there, screaming in pain."

In a bizarre footnote, Burton was sleeping on a top bunk when the accident happened, and he'd ended up there because of a single draw from a deck of cards. He and guitarist Kirk Hammett drew cards to choose who was going to get the pick of the bunks, and Burton won with the ace of spades. He chose the bunk that Hammett had been using, and ultimately died.

Stevie Ray Vaughan

Stevie Ray Vaughan's 136-show In Step Tour kicked off on May 4, 1989, and ended with an epic show featuring Eric Clapton (via SRV Archive) followed by a tragic helicopter accident that took one of music's most respected guitarists.

The show was at Wisconsin's Alpine Valley Musical Theater, and after the show, a group of four helicopters had been reserved to fly the performers back to their Chicago hotel. According to Guitar World , one of the choppers had been reserved for Vaughan, his brother, and his brother's wife. Some of Clapton's entourage was already on board, though, and Vaughan asked to swap in.

It was only the next morning that reports started to go out that the chopper had never reached its destination, and when friends found Vaughan's hotel room empty, they thought the worst. By 7 a.m., Vaughan's brother was called and asked to identify his body. Vaughan — along with everyone else on the chopper — had died only half a mile into the flight, when the pilot banked sharply in the fog and collided with a ski slope. Eerily, only the day before Vaughan had shared a disturbing dream with his bandmates: He had dreamed he was a witness to his own funeral.

Dropkick Murphys

The end of 2014 was a bad time for Celtic punk rockers the Dropkick Murphys. On November 13, Al Barr received word that a childhood friend had passed away. He posted that he was going to be unable to make their next scheduled show in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as he would be flying out to attend his friend's funeral.

But to add to the tragedy, Loudwire says they never made it to the airport. The next announcement was that they were canceling their Tulsa show after their tour bus hit and killed a pedestrian who had run into the street in front of them.

The Boston Globe later identified the man as a 23-year-old father of one, adding that the accident had happened just north of Austin on Interstate 35. Even as the Dropkick Murphys posted about their show cancellation, condolences, and a request their fans keep the family of the man in their prayers, the family returned the sentiment with sympathies to all the band members involved and to the bus driver.

Ozzy Osbourne

Black Sabbath had given Ozzy Osbourne the boot in 1979, but by the early '80s, things were sort of back on track. Rolling Stone credits guitarist Randy Rhoads for that, and Ozzy says Rhoads' accidental death still haunts him. "To this day, as I'm talking to you now, I'm back in that field looking at this f*cking plane wreck and a house on fire," Osbourne said in 2018. "You never get over something like that. You're in shock."

And it was a bizarre accident. According to Ultimate Classic Rock , bus driver Andrew Aycock (who had an expired pilot's license) hopped in a small 1955 Beechcraft Bonanza with Rhoads and a woman named Rachel Youngblood. With Ozzy and the rest of his band asleep on the tour bus, Aycock buzzed the bus a few times before losing control, hitting a tree, and crashing into a house. The three were killed instantly, and the incident had a lasting impact on the other band members — particularly Rudy Sarzo, who parted ways with Ozzy and returned to Quiet Riot after the accident. Sarzo simply said, "It was so painful to go onstage without Randy, so I just left one of the biggest bands in the world for nothing, no promises, no nothing, just so I could enjoy playing again."

It was Sharon Osbourne who pushed them to move on. Within a week and a half, they were back on tour with replacement guitarist Bernie Torme.

Yes, Gary Numan is absolutely still around, and in early 2018 he announced (via Consequence of Sound ) that he was going to be going on tour — for a second time — to support his 22nd album, "Savage (Songs from a Broken World)." That was in April, and it was in September 2018 that he canceled a show at the House of Blues after his tour bus was involved in a tragic accident.

According to Rolling Stone , Numan's tour bus was making a right turn when it collided with a 91-year-old man who had been pushing a cart through a crosswalk. The man died at the scene and was given last rites by a priest from a nearby church.

Numan not only canceled the show but issued this statement: "We are all utterly devastated by the fatal accident involving our tour bus earlier today. Every one of us is filled with a sadness that made it impossible to even consider playing our show this evening, and out of respect it would have been entirely wrong. ... At the moment all we can think about are the people affected by this terrible tragedy, and to them we send our love."

Buddy Holly

February 3, 1959, was forever immortalized as The Day the Music Died, although everyone from The Beatles and the Rolling Stones to Bob Dylan and Elton John would be inspired by Buddy Holly ... who stayed 22 years old forever.

Three of the biggest up-and-coming rock stars of their day were on the plane that crashed not long after takeoff. It claimed the lives of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. Richardson Jr., better known as The Big Bopper. They had just finished playing a show in Iowa, part of their very 1950s-sounding Winter Dance Party Tour. The concerts were amazing, but the travel part was less than ideal.

According to the Independent , they were faced with a 400-mile journey to their next gig, and no one wanted to make the trip on their freezing, malfunctioning tour bus. Holly decided to charter a private plane, but there were only so many seats. Holly took one, Valens won another on a coin toss, and another musician — Waylon Jennings — gave his seat to Richardson, who was suffering from the flu. For the rest of his life, Jennings would be haunted by the good-natured but, in hindsight, horrible exchange he had with Holly just before the plane took off: "I hope your damned bus freezes up again," Holly had told him. Jennings' response? "I hope your ol' plane crashes."

There were no survivors.

Lynyrd Skynyrd

Lynyrd Skynyrd's iconic album "Street Survivors" had hit shelves only a few days before they boarded their leased, 30-year-old plane in spite of many misgivings. They'd already played five shows on the tour, and it had gone well — they were sitting on top of the world, but no amount of success can persuade the Reaper to look the other way.

According to Rolling Stone , they had plans to upgrade their old Convair 240 to a Learjet, and their 600-mile flight from Greenville to Baton Rouge was going to be one of their last trips in the Convair. It was — but not for the reasons they thought.

Survivors said nearly everyone onboard (except Ronnie Van Zant, pictured) had misgivings about the trip — misgivings amplified by the fact that just a few days earlier, flames had been seen spitting from one of the engines. But Van Zant was adamant, pushing them with these fateful words: "Hey, if the Lord wants you to die on this plane, when it's your time, it's your time. Let's go, man. We've got a gig to do." The plane crashed around three hours later. Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, and his sister, Cassie, lost their lives in the Mississippi swamps.

Strangely, Van Zant had been convinced that he would die before he turned 30, and he was just a few months shy of his 30th birthday when the plane went down.

Reba McEntire

There's no denying that a single decision can change the course of an entire life, and for Reba McEntire, that decision happened in 1991. McEntire and her band had finished a show in San Diego and were heading to their next gig. She, her husband, and her stylist decided to spend one more night in California, while the others went on ahead in two separate planes. The second plane made it to its destination, but 10 miles from the destination, tragedy struck the first plane as it carried eight of McEntire's close friends and bandmates (via The Boot ).

According to Taste of Country , one of the plane's wings clipped a rock protruding from the side of Otay Mountain. No one survived the crash.

Other country music superstars stepped up, even offering to give McEntire their own backing bands so she could continue on and finish her tour, but she declined. She continued to memorialize the crash and remember those she lost, dedicating her next album — "For My Broken Heart" — to those who died in the crash. She visited the crash site on the 25th anniversary of the tragedy, posting on social media: "I feel in my heart that they know we still miss them so much. My love and prayers to all the families and friends."

Gloria Estefan

Some people are fortunate — and determined — enough to turn a tragedy into something good, and that's exactly what Gloria Estefan has managed to do. In 1990, she was headed for Syracuse when her tour bus was rear-ended (via Syracuse ). Her injuries were catastrophic: She broke her back and was told there was a very good chance she would never walk again, much less get on stage and dance. Years later, Estefan talked frankly about the accident on "Oprah's Next Chapter."  "Those things can ... tear you apart. It's hard to handle."

But she gives her husband a huge amount of credit for aiding in her recovery, which included nine months of therapy, every day, for seven hours a day. She was up and out of bed every 45 minutes, not because her therapy called for it but because she was in too much pain to sleep.

She came to this conclusion: "At first, I just wanted to walk again. And then I thought, 'Maybe this was the whole point of me becoming famous, to now go through something like this in the public eye and hopefully show people how much power we actually have and what we can do to help change our destiny." Estefan has gone on to do charity work, campaigning, and fundraising, all in hopes of furthering medical research done on spinal cord injuries and paralysis (via FOX News ).

Trace Adkins

According to CNN , Trace Adkins was already at the CenturyTel Center in Bossier City, Louisiana, in 2010 for his scheduled show when he got the news that his tour bus had been involved in a horrific accident just north of Shreveport.

Five members of his band were on the bus, though, and while they suffered only minor injuries, the two men who were in the Ford F-250 when it collided head-on with the tour bus were killed.

According to the official investigation (via The Boot ), the truck had been swerving as it approached the bus, and the bus driver was unable to avoid it. Ultimately, the cause of the accident was ruled to be driver fatigue — the men in the truck had been up for around 24 hours at the point of the accident and were on their way home from an all-nighter at a nearby casino. Adkins played a "scaled-down" version of his show following the accident and canceled his show in Pensacola.

Otis Redding and the Bar-Kays

Otis Redding, the 26-year-old well-driller turned megastar, died not long after unseating Elvis Presley as the Melody Maker's top male vocalist (via Rolling Stone ). He was seeing the fruits of his labors, too — the tour that he died on was the first tour where he was using his own, newly purchased private plane. Redding and his backing group, the Bar-Kays, were only 4 miles from their destination — the Madison Municipal Airport in Madison, Wisconsin — when the plane crashed into a nearby lake. It had been covered with fog, and days later, rescue divers were still dredging the lake to try to recover those who had been on the plane.

There was one survivor: Ben Cauley. A seat cushion saved his life, and he — along with fellow Bar-Kay member James Alexander, who was on another plane — rebuilt the group and later toured with Isaac Hayes, Aretha Franklin , and the Doobie Brothers. Any accident like this is terrible, but the deaths of the Bar-Kays were particularly heartbreaking: They were still in high school at the time, and some were so young that Billboard says they needed permission slips from their parents to miss school and go on the tour.

There's a footnote here, too. CL Tampa Bay says the accident came just three days after Redding recorded what would be one of his most iconic songs: "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay."

The Ghost Inside

In 2015, The Ghost Inside was on their way from a gig in Texas to their next show in Phoenix when they were involved in a catastrophic accident.

They were just outside El Paso when a truck hit their tour bus head-on. At first, details were sketchy. NME reported that the driver of their tour bus and one person in the other vehicle had been killed, and drummer Andrew Tkaczyk had been seriously injured. In the immediate aftermath, his brother Nick said Andrew had suffered head trauma, a shoulder injury, and broken bones. It later came out that Andrew had spent 10 days in a coma and had one of his legs amputated.

It wasn't until 2018 that Digital Music News reported there might be the possibility that the group would play again. Tkaczyk had been fitted with a prosthetic (not ideal for playing), and his father built a device that adapted his drums to his missing leg. The Ghost Inside currently has plans to play a single live show in July 2019 , but what will happen after that is unclear.

Folky singer-songwriter Jim Croce had given up on music and gotten a job in construction after his first album, recorded with his wife, Ingrid, had flopped, according to Rolling Stone . Then ABC/Dunhill Records gave him a second chance, and signed Croce to record a couple of singles. Both songs, "You Don't Mess Around with Jim" and "Operator" reached the Top 20 of the pop chart in 1972, prompting the recording of a full album and the No. 1 hit "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" in April 1973. Just six months later, Croce was dead.

According to the Associated Press (via the Spokesman-Review ), Croce booked a string of concerts at colleges in 1973, and after playing a show at Northwestern Louisiana University, he and his band boarded a small, chartered plane to make it to their next show in Sherman, Texas. Unable to reach a safe altitude, the plane crashed right after takeoff, striking a tree 250 feet past the runway. Six people in the vehicle died, including comedian and Croce opening act George Stevens, accompanist Maurice Muehlelsen, manager Dennis Fast, booking agent Dominick Cortese, pilot Robert Newton Elliott, and Croce, who was 30 years old.

Rick Nelson

Rick Nelson was one of the very first rock n' roll stars. He was also the prototypical musical teen idol, crooning instant hits each week on "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet," the long-running sitcom in which he starred with his family, according to AllMusic . After a string of hits in the late 1950s like "I'm Walking," "Poor Little Fool," and "Lonesome Town," Nelson had a major comeback hit with the bitter country rock lament "Garden Party."

Following a show in Guntersville, Alabama, in December 1985, according to The New York Times , Nelson and his band took the musician's DC-3 airplane to Dallas, where they were to play a New Year's Eve gig at the Park Suite Hotel. Eyewitnesses saw the plane circling above the northeastern Texas town of De Kalb. Responding to the ominous activities, the Texas Department of Public Safety dispatched a helicopter to assist, and Nelson's pilot reported an onboard fire and that he needed to make an emergency landing. Moments later, the plane, engulfed in flames, careened into a forest and hit a power line on the way down, causing the aircraft to explode when it hit the trees. The pilot and co-pilot survived, albeit badly burned. The seven passengers all died, including 45-year-old Nelson, his fiancée, and his band.

Chuck Mangione

Ultra-smooth, utterly sophisticated soft rock had a big cultural moment in the late 1970s, and few embody that era more than Chuck Mangione. He's one of the few players of the flugelhorn (a brass instrument related to the trumpet) to ever achieve major pop success, according to The Washington Post . And he did so with "Feels So Good," a lyrics-free, easy-listening jam with a hooky melody played by Mangione himself and accompanied by some funky, disco-adjacent rhythm and bass. It went to No. 4 on the pop chart and was the first of many times Mangione would score on the adult contemporary chart.

On the evening of February 12, 2009, according to the CBC , a flight departed from Newark, New Jersey, in the direction of Buffalo Niagara International Airport in New York. Among the 49 passengers were Gerry Niewood and Coleman Mellett, saxophone and woodwind player and guitarist, respectively, in Chuck Mangione's backing and touring band. They were scheduled to play with Mangione and the Buffalo Philharmonic, a show that was canceled after the musicians' plane crashed into a residence outside Buffalo. According to NPR , all 49 passengers died, including 64-year-old Niewood, who'd played with Mangione in the '60s and '70s, and 33-year-old Mellett.

Eddie Cochran

In the late 1950s, Eddie Cochran' s bouncy guitar and raspy vocals helped write the blueprint for the first wave of rock n' roll, pulling equally from country music and R&B. While still in his teens, Cochran repeatedly hit the upper reaches of the pop chart with his songs about partying and youthful frustration, particularly "Summertime Blues" and "C'mon Everybody."

According to History , Cochran's rougher-edged rock n' roll remained popular in the U.K. in the 1960s after softer pop had supplanted such music on the charts in the U.S. That prompted Cochran and fellow early rock n' roll star Gene Vincent to go on tour in the U.K. The shows proved so popular that Cochran and Vincent added an additional 10 weeks of shows. On April 16, 1960, the duo played a concert in Bristol and hired a cab to drive them to the London airport. The driver lost control on a windy section of highway late at night near Chippenham and hit a lamp post. Vincent suffered a collarbone injury, while Cochran was thrown out of the car upon impact. Hours later, he died from the effects of a head injury. Cochran was 21.

In the mid-1990s, dance-pop duo La Bouche scored a string of hits in Europe and the U.S., notably "Be My Lover" in 1995 and "Sweet Dreams" in 1996. According to MTV , producer Frank Farian (who previously assembled Milli Vanilli) put the group together, pairing soulful Atlanta-born singer Melanie Thornton with rapper Lane McCray. Following three La Bouche albums, Thornton gave a solo career a try, and had a hit in Germany with "Ready to Fly." In November 2001, two days before the release of follow-up single "Wonderful Dream," Thornton died in an aviation accident.

The singer was a passenger on a small plane that departed Berlin, Germany, bound for Zurich, Switzerland, where Thornton was scheduled to perform. Just before the plane could safely land, it crashed in a forest near the airport, according to the Associated Press. Thornton was among the 24 people on board who died; the singer was 33.

According to the BBC , Her's was a band on the rise in the late 2010s. Featured on "BBC Introducing," they released their first record "Invitation To Her's" in 2018, which was well-received by indie rock fans in the U.S. and the U.K. Her's comprised just two musicians: Stephen Fitzpatrick and Audun Laading, who met when they both attended the Liverpool Institute of the Performing Arts. Rock critics enjoyed the band, with The Guardian likening them to the Smiths and Aztec Camera.

In 2019, according to CNN , Her's embarked on a 19-date tour across the United States. On March 26, the duo played a show in Phoenix and took a van to reach their next gig, more than 300 miles away, in Santa Ana, California. In the early morning hours of March 27, the group's vehicle was involved in a head-on collision when it was struck by a pickup. The driver of the truck died, as did all three people in the van — both 24-year-old Fitzpatrick and 25-year-old Laading of Her's and their tour manager, Trevor Engelbrektson.

Khaotika and Wormreich

Khaotika and Wormreich are two different bands that specialize in loud, hard, and heavy subgenres of metal, but they attracted enough of the same audience that they could tour together through the southeastern United States, where both groups formed, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution . Khaotika once described its music on its Facebook page (via AJC) as "melodic occult metal," and the band released its first collection, "Bloodline Empire" in 2014. Wormreich, a black metal act, per The Metal Archives , had been knocking around since 2009 with a debut album called "Edictvm DCLXVI."

Khatotika and Womreich toured together in 2015, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution . Following a concert in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and on their way to play a show in Atlanta, the van driver fell asleep at the wheel. The car drifted and crashed into a tree. Eight people in the single-vehicle crash were hospitalized, with three admitted to critical care units. Three others died just after the accident as a result of injuries suffered. Nicholas Crisostomo, 25, of Khatokia died, as did 30-year-old Ian McKinney and 29-year-old Paul Truesdell of Wormreich.

Decapitated

According to their official biography, Decapitated formed in Poland in 1996 and by the early 2000s, they'd established themselves as one of the most prominent bands in Polish tech death, a subgenre of heavy metal notable for its difficult and exacting style of shredding. After releasing some well-received and extremely heavy and technically-complex albums, several musicians came in and out of the band, per AllMusic , including original lead singer Wojciech "Sauron" Wasowicz, replaced by veteran metal singer Adrian "Coven" Kowanek.

During a tour of Russia in November 2007, Decapitated's tour bus crashed into a lumber truck near the Belarus-Russian border, according to Onet.pl (via Blabbermouth ). Decapitated singer Kowanek and drummer Witold "Vitek" Kieltyka both endured serious head injuries. After falling into a coma, Kowanek experience a cardiac arrest and then a severely interrupted oxygen flow to his brain, which lead to full paralyzation, according to Metal Insider . Kieltyka underwent emergency surgery and was set to be sent home to Poland for more hospitalization and treatment. He never left Russia, dying of his injuries at age 23.

Combining hard rock, punk, and emo, Bayside helped create and capture that definitive sound of the early 2000s. The band formed in the Bayside neighborhood of Queens, New York in 2000, according to AllMusic , then quickly released a couple of EPs before signing with Victory Records and putting out their first two full-length albums , the latter of which became the band's first music to hit the Billboard album chart and bring them into the big time.

Weeks later, Bayside's tour took them through the American west, according to Billboard . While heading to a show in Salt Lake City as a support act for Hawthorne Heights, their van encountered an icy section of highway near Cheyenne, Wyoming. The vehicle flipped and landed on its roof. Bassist Nick Ghanbarian and drum tech Dan Marino were severely injured, hospitalized with broken backs, and needed surgery. Drummer John "Beatz" Holohan died as a result of injuries suffered in the accident. He was 31 years old.

Having honed his skills as a trumpet player in the big bands of jazz icons like Stan Kenton and Woody Herman, Bill Chase broke off on his own in the early '70s. He recruited a bunch of other young musicians and created a jazz-rock band that he named after himself, according to the Chicago Tribune . Chase, the band, racked up a few hits in 1971, most notably the horn-drenched "Get it On," which reached No. 24 on the Billboard pop chart .

In August 1974, Chase booked a show at the Jackson County Fair in southwestern Minnesota. Half of the group's members arrived early, with the remaining four members taking a small, two-engine plane from Chicago, according to UPI (via The New York Times ). On the evening of August 9, that plane crashed into a soybean field a few miles from the destination point. Authorities sorted through the wreckage and found the bodies of six people, meaning everyone aboard had died. Among the dead were the pilot and co-pilot, along with band leader Bill Chase, drummer Walt Clark, guitarist John Emma, and organ player Wallace Wohn.

Montgomery Gentry

According to AllMusic , Montgomery Gentry formed when Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry's band Young Country broke up after lead singer John Michael Montgomery embarked on a successful solo career. While more of a Southern rock act comparable to Lynyrd Skynyrd or the Charlie Daniels Band, Montgomery Gentry was big on the country music scene in the late '90s and 2000s, topping the charts with "If You Ever Stop Loving Me," "Lucky Man," and "Back When I Knew It All."

According to the Montgomery Gentry Twitter account , the duo was set to play a show at the Flying W Airport and Resort in Medford, New Jersey, on September 8, 2017. Eddie Montgomery was waiting at the Flying W, when Gentry decided to go on a quick helicopter tour of the area before their show, according to The Tennessean . The aircraft crashed just off the complex's runway, per CNN , killing both the pilot, Flying W flight instructor James Evan Robinson and Troy Gentry. The 50-year-old musician was pronounced dead at a local hospital just after the accident.

Todd (VO): This video is brought to you by Curiosity Stream.

  • 1 Introduction

Introduction [ ]

Todd: When we talk about the '90s, so many trends and styles and events and media come to mind [image of The 1990s issue of "Decades of the 20th Century"] Grunge, the Clinton administration, OJ, 90210, G-Funk, the internet. But of all the things that defined the decade, I think we can all agree that the true iconic symbol of the '90s is... the bus.

Clip of Kriss Kross - "I Missed The Bus", followed by various other '90s bus clips

Todd (VO): Was there a single moment in the '90s when we were not thinking about buses?

Clip from Speed
Jack Traven (Keanu Reeves): There is a bomb on this bus.
More '90s bus clips

Todd (VO): All over the news, in our TV shows and songs and movies. It was a nonstop barrage of buses.

Clip from Seinfeld - The Muffin Tops
Kramer (Michael Richards): Hey Jerry! I'm starting a Peterman Reality bus tour!

Todd (VO): Whenever you see a bus nowadays, everyone's like "Wow, a bus, that's so '90s!"

Clip of Outkast - "Rosa Parks"
Big Boi: Ah ha, hush that fuss
Everybody move to the back of the bus

Todd (VO): And so, to honor the iconic vehicle of the era, I think someone should do a definitive ranking of the best buses of the decade. And it seems that duty belongs to me. With so many to choose from, I had to make some painful cuts. Some of your favorites might not make it on here, and I'm sorry. It was a stiff competition.

Todd: So get on board, everyone. Next stop is: this list. We're counting down!

Clip of "I Missed The Bus", which serves as the interlude throughout the countdown
Kriss Kross: I missed the bus, I missed the bus

Todd (VO): The Top Ten Buses of the '90s

Todd (VO): Number 10

Clip from Spice World
Posh Spice: Fasten your seatbelts!

Todd (VO): In 1998, the short-lived but glorious pop phenomenon known as the Spice Girls reached its peak with the wonderfully inane Spice World . A thoroughly plotless and pointless romp through all things Spice.

Ginger Spice: Um, blah blah blah. Um, girl power, feminism.

But this ridiculous pop star vehicle had a star vehicle of its own...

#10. The Spicebus

Todd (VO): The Spicebus.

Nicola (Meat Loaf): Hey, that's my bus!

Decorated like Austin Powers ' apartment, both outside and in, the Spicebus was also apparently three lanes wide on the inside. Big enough to accommodate Sporty's exercise space, Posh's beauty routine, and... whatever it was the other three did.

Todd: All in all, a very impressive means of transport.

Todd (VO): But the Spicebus earns its way onto this list for one...

Todd: ...magical scene.

Posh Spice: Get out of the way! Get out of the way!

Todd (VO): In the movie's grand climax, the Spice Girls have to get to the... their, there's a bomb or- I don't really remember. But the point is, they have to get across the Tower Bridge, which is being raised right at that moment.

Todd: Can they make it across!?

Posh Spice: Hold onto your knickers, girls!
The girls scream as a model of the bus jumps over a model Tower Bridge

Todd: Brilliant. Masterpiece film making.

Todd (VO): I will be shocked, shocked if any other bus on this list has a better jump scene. [clip of video about the Spicebus Airbnb] The Spicebus has since been converted into an Airbnb, and you can stay in it for $260 a night. For that reasonable price, you too can use the bus toilet that Meat Loaf refused to unclog.

Nicola: I love these girls, and I'll do anything for 'em. But I won't do that.

Todd: To think, this movie got bad reviews. Next!

Todd (VO): Number 9

Clip from Space Jam
Reporter: What are you gonna do now?
Michael Jordan: Well, I've never really told anybody this except for one person, and uh... But I think I'mma go and play professional baseball.
Clips of Michael Jordan playing baseball with K7 - "Come Baby Come" playing over top
K7: Swing, batter, batter, batter
Batter, batter, swing

Todd (VO): In 1994, Michael Jordan began his brief and ill-fated attempt to play baseball, signing with the Birmingham Barons in the double A league. Now, there were many questions about this move, but one of them was: Could a jet-setting superstar adjust to the indignities of life in the minors?

Todd: The answer? Sort of.

Michael: I'm not too adjusted to royalty that I can't ride a bus. You know what I mean, uh, I don't have a problem with it. As long as it's a luxury bus.

Todd (VO): And so came...

#9. The Jordan Cruiser

...the Jordan Cruiser. A luxury charter bus provided to the team by Michael himself. [image of an ad for the bus company featuring Michael] Loaned out by the bus company free-of-charge in exchange for Michael's endorsement, [various clips of...] the Jordan Cruiser boasted 35 seats, six televisions, a VCR, and a lounge in the back. By God, when they had to travel to Carolina Mudcats games, they would get there in style.

Todd: Now, those of you who aren't enthusiasts of third-tier professional baseball might ask...

Todd (VO): "Is that it? Just some celebrity's actual bus?"

Todd: What makes this bus so much better than the many, many other iconic buses of the '90s? My answer is...

Todd (VO): Look at it! My God, have you ever seen a more '90s bus in your life? It looks like [image of a paper cup with a teal and purple design] those paper cups they used to make. It looks like the opening credits of Saved By the Bell . I don't know how teal and purple became the colors of the entire '90s.

Todd: But that is apparently what we decided.

Todd (VO): Michael autographed both sided of the bus at the end of the season and returned to basketball. The Jordan Cruiser, meanwhile, served the Barons until 2002, but its legend lives on. [clip of a AAA video] The Barons even gave away commemorative Jordan Cruiser figurines a couple years ago to loyal fans. And more than anything, the Jordan Cruiser remains a potent symbol of how there are benefits to letting celebrities do whatever stupid thing they want.

Todd: Hey Michael, I don't know if you wanna be a YouTuber. But buy me a fancy bus, you can have this entire channel. Next!

Todd (VO): Number 8

Clip from "Cruis'n USA"
Singer: Cruisin', yeah, cruisin' USA

Todd (VO): Oh, was any '90s arcade complete without at least one "Cruis'n USA" machine? I don't know anyone who played [image of machine for...] Daytona. Like, [back to "Cruis'n USA"] why would you when you had "Cruis'n USA", the greatest arcade racing game of all time? Lot of fun levels, great gameplay, extremely age-inappropriate bikini babes. But the best part was if you knew the secret code that could unlock the best vehicle in the entire game: The Skool Bus.

#8. Cruis'n USA Skool Bus

The Skool Bus didn't have great acceleration, and it couldn't turn for shit. But my God, you could move it just as fast as any other car in the game. And more importantly, you could move that fast while also being absolutely huge. Which means that if you ever had any physical collision with the other cars...

The Skool Bus crashes into another car and the driver screams

Todd (VO): Ha ha ha, eat it! In a game with otherwise no combat, there is no greater joy than sideswiping one of your competitors into oncoming traffic with your gigantic school bus.

Todd: And then you would lose, because the computer cheats.

Clip from "Vigilante 8"

Todd (VO): And while we're talking video games, apologies to "Vigilante 8", a Twisted Metal ripoff which had a school bus as its flagship character. [clip of commercial for "Vigilante 8"] It looks cool enough and has this badass commercial.

A wrecked school bus reverses into frame
Girl: Holy sh*t!

But I'd never heard of this game or know anyone who played it. [back to "Cruis'n USA"] So, the best video game bus belongs to "Cruis'n USA". [beat]

Todd: Or does it?

Todd (VO): Number 7

Todd: It's the most infamous unreleased video game of all time.

Clip from "Penn and Teller: Smoke and Mirrors"

Todd (VO): In 1995, magician comedians Penn and Teller were set to release their first game "Smoke and Mirrors" on the Sega CD. It never made it to stores as, shortly before its release, the developer went kaput, as did the Sega CD as a console. But its legend lives on, mostly because of one hellish minigame.

Clip of Pen and Teller showcasing the came
Penn Jillette: Desert bus!
Clip from...

That game was...

#7. Desert Bus

Todd (VO): ..."Desert Bus", designed deliberately to be one of the most unplayable games of all time. Apparently inspired by the misery of tour life, "Desert Bus" is a racing game where you have to get from Tucson to Las Vegas.

Penn: 45 miles per hour maximum.

Accomplishing this takes eight hours . The road is straight the entire way, there are no other vehicles, you can't pause. And because the bus is misaligned...

Penn: Watch that little pull to the right.

Todd (VO): You cannot let go of the wheel. It is one of the most punishingly boring experiences ever designed. [clip of a "Desert Bus" charity stream] Streamers marathon this game for charity now. And I don't care how out of shape you are, running an actual marathon has to be a better experience.

Clip from "Desert Bus"
Penn: Teller!

Now you might ask, "Shouldn't this not be on the list then? Shouldn't this be on a list of the worst buses?" But come on. This is a prank too legendary, too conceptually perfect to not get all of your respect.

Todd (VO): The only way it could get better is if this had actually been sold to the unsuspecting public as intended. And besides, I completely get the enjoyment of deliberately wasting someone else's time. After all, I just made you watch more than a third of a list about buses of the '90s! It's not getting any more rewarding from here, folks.

Todd: All hail "Desert Bus".

Todd (VO): The greatest shit post of a video game ever made.

Todd (VO): Number 6

Clip from My Neighbor Totoro showing two kids being approached by...

Todd (VO): Points docked for this one for technically being an '80s bus. But this movie didn't come out [image of wiki page for My Neighbor Totoro ] in America until 1993, so I am counting it. [clip of My Neighbor Totoro ] If you say you knew Catbus before the '90s, you're a liar.

Todd: There are no 40-somethings in Japan watching my videos.

Todd (VO): Anyway, Catbus, what's its deal? Hayao Miyazaki's beloved anime My Neighbor Totoro is about these magical fat rabbits called Totoros. The movie never quite explains what they are or do. Which, you know, is fine. I'm a grown man, I don't need lore spoon-fed to me. But Catbus is... an actual bus. Why? Like, I thought the Totoros were ancient spirits, so does Catbus predate human buses? Is he mimicking our buses, or do our buses copy him? Why do Totoros need a bus anyway when they can fly? Where are they going? Honestly, Catbus should probably be higher on the list since he's the one who saves the day in the movie. And he's certainly the most unique bus on this list.

Most of the other buses are just... "bus" buses. [back to My Neighbor Totoro ] Honestly though, Catbus kinda freaks me out. I can't imagine being inside his body, under his furry canopy, sitting on seats made of cat parts. Like, Totoros I like, I'd take a nap on a Totoro. But Catbus never loses that creepy smile and he's got way too many legs. Like, why can't it just have four legs? Or tires? Why does Catbus have to have millipede legs? Eugh!

Todd: Oh, I'm gonna get murdered by a bunch of weebs for this.

Todd (VO): Look, the movie's a masterpiece, alright? I love it, don't hurt me.

Todd (VO): Number 5

Clip from The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
Adam Whitley (Guy Pearce): I hereby christen this budget Barbie camper... Priscilla, Queen of the Desert!

Todd (VO): The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is a 1994 cult movie that was part of a wave of cinema that sought to humanize that most demeaned and stereotyped group of people, Australians. For a long time, they were thought of as only backwater croc-wrestling hicks. But this movie showed that they could also be very, very gay.

Mitzi Del Bra (Hugo Weaving): Alright, girls. Let's go shopping.

In case you don't know it, the movie's about cabaret performers travelling through the outback to catch their next show. And it was a real milestone along the path to your mom watching drag competitions on TV every week.

Todd: But forget all that, we're here to talk about...

#5. Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

Todd (VO): ...the bus. One of the few buses to earn the honor of being the title character. Now, naysayers may say that Priscilla was not actually that great a bus. And yes, it did certainly get broken down a couple times and stranded our heroes in the desert. But before you look down on Priscilla and her failings...

Todd: I think you should check your privilege...

Todd (VO): ...and acknowledge the rampant homophobia of the '90s. Priscilla withstood horrible hate crimes, the Australian wastelands, and altogether too much ABBA. Just to get an LGBT dance group to their next gig. And it got a fabulous makeover in the process.

The dancers lip-synch to Peaches & Herb - "Shake Your Groove Thing"
Peaches & Herb: Shake your groove thing
Shake your groove thing, yeah yeah

We talk about the importance of trans allyship. But as it turns out, the best ally ship is actually an ally bus. Assuming Priscilla isn't trans herself. I mean, I don't know, maybe her first owners named her Roger or something. Shake your groove thing, Priscilla. You've earned it.

Peaches & Herb: A-shake it, shake it, a-do it to it, y'all

Todd (VO): Number 4

Clip of promo for... wait for it...
Announcer: We're on a bus with no brakes!

Todd (VO): No list of '90s buses would be complete without NFL legend...

#4. Jerome Bettis

...Jerome Bettis, one of the greatest running backs of all time.

Jerome Bettis: Wait 'til they get a load of me.
Various football clips of Jerome

Todd (VO): Nicknamed "The Bus" for his astonishing size and speed, Bettis was 250 lbs of muscle and plowed through defenses like a runaway Greyhound. Knocking over linebackers left and right in his unstoppable rush to the end zone. The Bus was named Rookie of the Year in his first season with the Rams, but he wouldn't become a true superstar until 1996, when he was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he would play for the rest of his career.

Cartoon image of "The Bus", followed by more clips of Jerome

In the 1997 season alone, The Bus carried the ball for a career high 1,665 yards. After twelve seasons in the NFL, this black and yellow Bus made his final stop in dramatic fashion with his victory in Super Bowl XL, his last game.

Hines Ward: I'm going to Disney World, and I'm taking The Bus!

Todd (VO): The Bus finished his career with 94 touchdowns, and an amazing 13,662 rushing yards. Which currently ranks as the sixth highest of all time. And in 2015, The Bus got its highest honor yet as it was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Jerome: The Bus will always and forever run in the Pro Football Hall of Fame!

Pittsburgh sports legend Jerome Bettis. Truly one of the great...

Todd: ...'90s buses. Before we continue, I'd like to say that I love this list and making it and writing it. Next!

Todd (VO): Number 3

Todd: Now, I know what you're thinking. Yes, these buses are all great, but they only do one thing.

Clip of the Jordan Cruiser

Todd (VO): Transport people, and/or footballs, from one place to another.

Todd: That's not the only function of a bus.

Clip of ad for VIP Party Bus

Todd (VO): Sometimes a bus is just a place to get fuckin' lit, play loud music and have a good time. Why is the party bus so unrepresented on this list? Doesn't anybody like to party?

Todd: Well, good news.

Vengaboys: We like to party, we like

Vengaboys: We like to party, we like to party

#3. The Vengabus

Vengaboys: The Vengabus is coming, and everybody's jumping
New York to San Francisco, an intercity disco

Todd (VO): Number 3 is the Vengabus.

Todd: Number 3, number 3 is the Vengabus.

Clip of Top of the Pops performance from Vengaboys

Todd (VO): In the summer of 1998, the world was introduced to the beautiful and confusingly half-female Vengaboys. To this day, we know very little about them. But we do know that they like to party. And when they did, they did it on a miraculous vehicle they called [clip of "We Like To Party"] the Vengabus. [single cover for "We Like To Party"] The Vengabus first appeared on "We Like To Party"'s single cover. But, does that look like a Vengabus to you? No, that's just a regular bus. [back to "We Like To Party"] When the video came out in 1999, we got to see the true Vengabus in all its glory.

Vengaboys: The Vengabus is coming

Look at this thing. Just utter nonsense all around. The chassis, the paint job, I love it. That's a true '90s Eurodance bus. I can only assume they drove it everywhere. [clip of Vengaboys - "We're Going to Ibiza"] Even when they were going to Ibiza... Which is an island. And they specifically say they're going to fly there on Venga Airways. What are they travelling in in the video?

Vengaboys: (Oh) We're going to Ibiza

Todd (VO): That goddamn ugly-ass bus. [clip of ad for Six Flags] Little wonder that Six Flags tried to latch onto the Vengabus legend with its own creepy dancing old guy bus commercials.

"We Like to Party" plays as the old man dances

This is stolen valor, you are no Vengabus. And also, the Six Flags I went to sucked ass. But honestly, I can't lie, I like this horrible commercial. I can't help it, just too many good vibes by association.

Vengaboys: Happiness is just around the corner

Todd: Happiness is just around the corner!

Todd (VO): God bless you Vengabus. May you keep spreading good vibes from New York to San Francisco, an inter-city disco.

Vengaboys: So if you like to party
Get up and move your body
The Vengabus is coming

Todd (VO): Number 2

Clip from The Simpsons
Homer Simpson: I saw this in a movie about a bus that had to speed around the city, keeping its speed over 50. And if its speed dropped, it would explode. I think it was called... The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down

#2. The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down

Todd (VO): Pop quiz, hotshot! What is the best Die Hard ripoff of all time? [movies posters for...] Under Siege ? Under Siege 2 ? Die Hard 3 ? No, it is of course Speed , quite possibly the best action movie of the '90s.

Jack: There is a bomb on this bus.

As summer blockbusters go, Speed has a number of great performances. One of Keanu Reeves' best performances, a star-making role for Sandra Bullock, Dennis Hopper at his most Dennis Hopper-y. Jeff Daniels making an absolutely perfect face before getting blown the fuck up!

A beep is heard, then the house explodes

Todd (VO): But I think we can all agree, the star of Speed is that goddamn bus. On that fateful day in 1994, bus 2525 was hijacked and all its passengers held hostage at the whim of a mad man.

Howard Payne (Dennis Hopper): "The whim of a mad man!" Ha-ha-ha-ha, I like that!

And that bomber's horrible plot put that poor bus to its limits. Speeding through Los Angeles at over 50 miles per hour to avoid being detonated.

Howard: You know that I'm on top of you! Do not attempt to grow a brain!

Todd (VO): Now let us be clear, this is a miracle bus. Having now experienced LA traffic myself, I now know for certain that this is a stupid, stupid evil plan! Cause that bus would've been stopped and exploded immediately and Dennis Hopper would have no leverage. And yet that bus kept bussing. Right up through the scene everyone remembers.

Jack: There's a gap in the freeway. Floor it! It's an interchange, there might be an incline, floor it!

Let us be clear about this too; this scene is [arrow appears between highway segments showing a straight line] impossible. That bus should've gone straight into the ground, there is no way it makes it over that gap. Except for the fact that this is a magic goddamn bus.

Jack: Everybody hold on!

Todd (VO): Look at this, it doesn't just race up to the gap, it fucking rears up on its hind legs and jumps.

The bus makes the jump and lands on the other side

This twelve-tonne bus popped a wheelie and hit the rocket boosters to keep those men and women alive. And only succumbed to its sad end after making sure all of its charges were safe. We salute you and your sacrifice, bus 2525. May you go down in history as the greatest hero bus of all time.

Todd: [salutes]

Bus 2525 crashes into a plane and explodes

Todd (VO): Number 1

Todd: We have seen many buses do amazing things during the course of this list today.

Clips from Speed; The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert; "Cruis'n USA"; Jerome Bettis playing football; "We Like to Party"

Todd (VO): Make miraculous leaps of faith, cross treacherous terrain, win races, score touchdowns, bring parties to the unexpecting populous.

Todd: Now these are all incredible feats.

Zoomed in picture of the door of... wait for it...

Todd (VO): But the number 1 bus is superior to all of them. Because it's the only bus that can do all of those things. And in fact, can do anything and everything. Every single thing you can imagine.

Todd: And you already know what it is. So it's time to announce it. [claps]

Todd (VO): Buckle your seatbelts, kids. [the image zooms out]

Clip of The Magic School Bus intro
Ms. Frizzle (Lily Tomlin): Seatbelts, everyone!
Arnold (Amos Crawley): Please let this be a normal field trip!
Wanda (Lisa Yamanaka): With the Friz?

Todd: No way!

#1. The Magic School Bus

Little Richard: Cruisin' on down Main Street
You're relaxed and feeling good

Todd (VO): Was there ever a better moment in class than when the teacher wheeled out the TV and declared that Ms. Frizzle was gonna be teaching today's lesson while she went and got a smoke? The Magic School Bus led us into a magical world where learning about the respiratory system was a fun adventure and not just memorizing a bunch of vocabulary words.

Ms. Frizzle: To the bus!

And that's all because of the titular character. A bus that could do literally anything. And while it only used its powers for educational purposes, I have no doubt it could do everything the other buses did. It could win races, it could break tackles, it could turn into a cat. [The Magic School Bus transforms into a frog] I mean, look at this! Can you do that, Catbus? I don't think you can.

Arnold: Oh no! Field trip...

Todd (VO): I always wondered what Arnold's problem was but... That bus and those kids on it were in mortal danger every single episode.

Ms. Frizzle: That's right, Arnold. They'll try to destroy us!
Kids: Destroy us!?

Did that ever stop Ms. Frizzle or her bus? Hell no! Magic School Bus don't care. Magic School Bus don't give a fuck!

Ms. Frizzle: Ah, the wonders of the human body.

Todd (VO): You could travel through space, time, computers, Arnold's nose, you could spank plankton, get baked into a pie. All on the Magic School Bus, the greatest bus of the '90s.

Todd: I mean, here's how you know it was magic, it had...

Todd (VO): ...seatbelts. Did your school bus have seatbelts?

Todd: Mine didn't, we were getting thrown around all over the place. [gets up and leaves]

Little Richard: Come on, ride on the Magic School Bus

Sponsor [ ]

Todd: [runs back to the piano] Oh. Oh, oh, oh, and... Speaking of educational content.

Clip from The Woodstock Bus

Todd (VO): If this ridiculous goof-off video I made put you in the mood to learn something more substantial on the topic. Might I suggest you watch a documentary about a bus of a different decade, the Woodstock bus. And how it became an enduring symbol of the '60s. That's the documentary The Woodstock Bus , and you can of course watch that on Curiosity Stream. Go to curiositystream.com/toddintheshadows ...
