The Top 10 Albums 15 Years Ago Today

I thought I would jump into the time machine today and turn the clock back 15 years. 1993 was the year that:

  • Bill Clinton was inagurated as the 42nd President of the United States
  • Islamic terrorists attacked the World Trade Center for the first time using a bomb packed into a van
  • A standoff with a Branch Davidian cult in Waco, Texas resulted in 85 deaths
  • 19 American soldiers and 500 Somali militia were killed in a Mogadishu battle
  • NAFTA was passed

1. Zooropa - U2
