    By: Meg
    • 10. Satlillite by Dave Matthews Band
      this was the first DMB song i ever learned to love. I used to hate Dave when they first came out except for this song, now i am the hugest Dave fan you will ever meet!!!
    • 9. Don't cry for me Argentina by Madonna
      When Evita came out I was like in love with that movie, i was the only girl in my crew that knew all the words to the song and my girls all said i sang it like a pop star ; )
    • 8. What Is Love by Haddaway
      that movie came out when i was 12, everyone in their mom was addicted to that stupid sideways headbanging thing to the music
    • 7. Tubthumping by Chumbawumba
      that song was pretty cool..
    • 6. No Scrubs by TLC
      the themesong of my 8th grade class, what can i say!
    • 5. Tearin up my heart by NSync
      they played this song at my friend's graduation party for middle school and one of my classmates just took off down the street cuz he thought NSync was such fags, lol. My entire middle school had a hard core NSync obsession
    • 4. Say You'll Be There by Spice Girls
      i wanted to be Sporty Spice when i was like 11, lol
    • 3. Changes by Tupac
      i was feelin that song...
    • 2. Gangsta's Paradise by Coolio
      also loved that song
    • 1. Ironic by Alanis Morrisette
      I kinda look like her, this Canadian soccer coach i had a crush on told me i looked like she looked in high school when he took her to the prom. I was so thrilled to meet Alanis' prom date, i told the entire world

    • 10. Cumbersome by Seven Mary Three
    • 9. Creep by Radiohead
    • 8. Standing At A Broken Phone Booth by Primative Radio Gods
    • 7. Gone Away by The Offspring
    • 6. Low by Cracker
    • 5. Heaven Beside You by Alice In Chains
    • 4. In The Meantime by Spacehog
    • 3. Sister by The Nixons
    • 2. 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
    • 1. Counting Blue Cars by Dishwalla

    While looking at a few of these lists, I saw that some of these people (most likely 10-12 during the best part of the 90s) did not have the true spirit of 90s music. They have Britney Spears and all the other aweful TEENY Bopper music that turned the end of the 90s and the beginning of 2000s into music almost as bad as the disco and 80s pop music era. Kids, these 10 songs are essential for any 90s collection. There are sooooo many more that could go on the list but these are the bext 10 that the 90s had to offer!!

    • 2. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
