Although Garbage is a Wisconsin band, singer Shirley Manson is Scottish. They were searching for a singer, saw one of her old band's videos, and asked if she would mind relocating to Madison. The rest is history. I don't know if the word "queer" is considered as vulgar in Scotland as it is here; you do occasionally hear Brits use it in its original meaning of "disquietingly, abnormally peculiar." There's really no good synonym for it! The lyrics are all about heterosexuality and the word seems to be used in its original sense, grouped with strange, cold, lame and dumb. I think you lost the thread. Those may be big songs from the 90s, but would you call those three bands "alternative?" Aerosmith's first hit was "Dream On" in 1973. After "Sweet Emotion," "Walk This Way" and "Back in the Saddle" it's hard for me to regard "Don't Wanna Miss a Thing" as "important."Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! Since it's a waltz, my friends' band plays it as their slow-dance song. Pretty amusing.
