    • 10. Me and You vs. the World by Space
      The debut of the scouse indie act, gret song!
    • 9. Come on you Reds! by Status Quo ft. Manchester United F.C.

    • 8. Don't Look Back in Anger by Oasis
      Great Song, the pinnacle of their career in many people's view
    • 7. Step On by the Happy Mondays
      Real Rock and Roll! Bez: the Immortal Dancer!
    • 6. The Day Before Yesterday's Man by the Supernaturals
      Great song from the little known Scots
    • 5. Hit 'Em Up by 2 Pac
      That'll show those damn Eastside Imposters!
    • 4. Three Lions by Lightning Seeds, Baddiel, Skinner
      Made all of England believe we could win the Euro '96 Soccer Championships
    • 3. Whatever by Oasis
      Whoulda thunk it! A great song with violins!
    • 2. Universal by Blur
      See #3
    • 1. Champagne Supernova by Oasis
      Should of been released, great song.

    The 90's was a great era for music, bands like Blur, Happy Mondays, Ocean Colour Scene, Space and, of course, Oasis pioneered indie music, despite their poorness, Spice Girls took over the world, Rap Music became the most popular type, with 2 Pac, Biggie and co. arguing, ending in two tragic deaths. But the lighter side of music, with football anthems from Fat Les, Status Quo, Frank Skinner and acts like the Macarena and Cotton eye Joe. I miss the 90's so!
