What are your top ten favorite songs from the 90s?
- 10. Take Me Their by Mya
This song is fun to listen to and it also has acatchy melody.
- 9. Miami by Will Smith
This song is catchy and very danceable.
- 8. Baby One More Time by Britney Spears
Hell, the girl can sing adam good song.
- 7. The Sign by Ace Of Base
Very refreshing to hear this during the time of grunge takeover.
- 6. Smooth by Santana featuring Rob Thomas
The guitar playing on this is phenominal.
- 5. Quit Playing Games(With My Heart) by Backstreet Boys
This is areally good instrumental pop song and it was the song that made the Boys huge in the U.S.
- 4. Tears In Heaven by Eric Clapton
This was such atouching song and Eric does areally good job on this.
- 3. MMMBop by Hanson
Ok I do not care. This was agood song and it kinda brought back pop music.
- 2. Always Be My Baby by Mariah Carey
I love this song cause it reminds me of my first love and how he will always be in my heart
- 1. I Want It That Way by Backstreet Boys
The greatest pop song of the 1990s. This made the Boys more popular then ever

- 10. Cool Kids' Club by Screeching Weasels
What you always knew in high school - there's a cool kids' club and you're not part of it. Unfortunately, that doesn't end with high school.
- 9. Light by KMFDM
No mercy for the masses. Germans doing what they do best - orchestrating overpowering attacks (sound, in this case). White Zombie's "More Human Than Human" is a close 2nd. Metal is not dead - it's just synthesized.
- 8. Leaving Home by The Chemical Brothers
Still probably most people's first experience with mainstream techno, and "Exit Planet Dust" is one of the finest albums of that genre. Overplayed now, but history will come back to it someday. Fatboy Slim, Leftfield, Orbital, Prodigy, Crystal Method, even Moby can trace their mainstream success back to this.
- 7. Loser by Beck
I'm a driver, I'm a winner. Things are gonna change, I can feel it.
- 6. Is Chicago, Is Not Chicago by Soul Coughing
M. Doty records music like nobody else. That doesn't mean everyone should or does like him, but his music is unique.
- 5. Head Like A Hole by Nine Inch Nails
This is one of those songs that perfectly vocalizes something you didn't even know you felt. "Pretty Hate Machine" as a whole is a Top Ten Album.
- 4. I'm An Adult Now by The Pursuit of Happiness
This song is like "Diagnosis Murder": Easier to relate to as you get older. Lyrics in point: "I don't write songs about girls anymore, I have to write songs about women, No more boy meets girl boy loses girl, More like man tries to figure out what the hell went wrong"
- 3. Jesus Built My Hot Rod by Ministry
No man with a good car needs to be justified. If you can't keep it at 55 with this song on, welcome to the world of the speed freak.
- 2. Burden in My Hand by Soundgarden
Nirvana/Pearl Jam invented grunge, but this was one of the last and most evolved songs of the movement. Chris Cornell's vocal range and the sense of mourning in this song make it a classic.
- 1. Head On by The Jesus and Mary Chain
It's #1 because it is. That's all.
I'm sorry there are only 10. "Kim The Waitress", Curve's "Fait Accompli", "The Beatles and the Stones" by the House of Love, A3's "Ain't Going to Goa", etc would have all made it.
- 10. Bone Thugs N Harmony by All of their songs
Possibly the best rap/hip hop artists to embrace mother earth...
- 9. biggie smalls by juicy
Great man...Great music...too bad we got violence to take his life...
- 8. Boyz II Men by They're all great
Theyve been around forever and jsut generally are awesome
- 7. Better Than Ezra... by Most of their songs
At the stars....In the blood...Desparatly Wanting...Good..Circle of Friends...King Of Orleans...Teenager...
- 6. Treble Charger by Many songs by them
Pretty cool band
- 5. The Cure by Maybe Someday
The Cure is great...And you never see it on TOP 10s and they really do rock..
- 4. Soul 4 Real by Candy Rain
Def. Old but niiice...
- 3. Snoop Dogg by Any song by him
Gin and Juice...Nuthin but a G thang
- 2. Moby by Porcelain
- 1. Nirvana by Teen Spirit
This song fucking rocks!!!!What more can you say
To anyone who disagrees with this list or puts any new pop artists sure doesnt know the 90s
By: Trevor M.
- 10. Ordinary World by Duran Duran
Best band of the 80s actually scored their beiggest international hit with this song.
- 9. Symbolistic White Walls by Matthew Good Band
Matthew Good has always been able to write haunting, cynical and depressing music...
- 8. Courage by Tragically Hip
Best performed live, true grit from these charming canadians.
- 7. Even Better Than The Real Thing by U2
Off one of the greatest albums ever, Achtung Baby, "Mysterious Ways" and "One" also deserve recognition.
- 6. Are You Gonna Go My Way? by Lenny Kravitz
So what if he may be imitating Led Zeppelin? This is still a rocking tune.
- 5. Zombie by Cranberries
Suffering and pain come across with ease here...
- 4. Everybody Hurts by R.E.M.
At face value, this seems depressing. But, by the end, it becomes uplifting, filled with hope.
- 3. Lightning Crashes by LIVE
- 2. Tragically Hip by Gift Shop
People of the USA, wake up! This band is HUGE in Canada and it is because they know how to Rock!
- 1. Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me by U2
Off the Batman Forever Soundtrack. U2 proves that it is the greatest rock band in the world.
Basically, I could have filled out at least 5 of the 10 with U2 sings, there are so many great ones! But I decided to give others a chance and just picked my 2 faves.
