Looking for more examples of 90s alt-rock songs making heavy use of patter / spoken sections.

I recently notice that a couple of popular alt-rock songs from the 90s, including some radio hits, feature substantial spoken or patter sections. The ones that I can list off the top of my head:
Nada Surf - Popular
Beck - Loser
Butthole Surfers - Pepper
Pavement - Conduit for Sale
Barenaked Ladies - One Week
Are there any other examples of this style? Why does it seem to have become less common since the 90s?
