Literally the best alt-rock bands of the '90s were the ones not in the grunge mold.

The Smashing Pumpkins with their psychedelic-metal-shoegaze-goth influences, Afghan Whigs with their R&B and soul influences, a variety of slowcore and shoegaze bands here and there, etc.

I can't for the life of me figure out how the hell The Pixies sound anything remotely like Nirvana or SP. They're music is atrocious and akin to something like surf rock than grunge. I'll tell you exactly what they remind me of and maybe they did influence this: those little filler music pieces n children's TV shows back in the 90's.
Cobain was into the Pixies. They were a direct influence.

Embarrassing post honestly - even on a Smashing Pumpkins forum 27 years after they put out their “grunge” record.
