I think Mike Patton can also be included and I read in wikipedia that Faith No More were an alternative metal band, they have been called so many things.

Even though they are a hip-hop band I think the Beastie Boys were influential to some of the alternative rockers and other styles throghout the 90s.

Anything that completely makes a decade-long culture suddenly outdated by a few Seattle bands is revolutionary. Yes.
Yet, the culture of excess and overt materialism came back stronger than ever just a few years later, when a bunch of rappers surrounded by scantly clad women in souped up sports cars kicked Grunge to the curb.

True, but that's just because culture, like technology, is changing quicker. Grunge also shaped the structure of rock music up to the modern day. That's why modern rock is usually referred to as post-grunge.
