This list presents many of the Northwest-based bands that made music in the latter 20th century. The following bands are listed because they are influent bands in the Northwest Music development, contained members that went on to other important bands, and many other groups that existed during that period. Most signed bands from the 1988-1994 era are listed. This is by no means a complete list of every band in the Seattle/Boise/Portland area. If there is a band that you think should be listed, but isn't, e-mail us.
