Songs of the 90s

VH1 recently aired, "100 Greatest Songs of the 90s." I loved it. As someone who LOVES musics and who spent my middle school, high school, and college years in the 90s, it was very nostalgic. I agreed with a lot of VH1's choices, but I felt that they left off a few songs (I was shocked they didn't include any Blink 182, Dave Matthews Band, or Nine Inch Nails!!) and I would have slightly rearranged the order. Here are my 20 most memorable songs from the 90s:

  1. Pearl Jam "Jeremy" (#11 on VH1's list)
  2. Blink 182 "All the Small Things" (not included on VH1's list)
  3. Dave Matthews Band "Crash Into Me" (not included on VH1's list)
  4. Nine Inch Nails "Closer" (not included on VH1's list)

  6. Nirvana "Smells Like Teen Spirit (#1 on VH1's list)
  7. Weezer "Undone-The Sweater Song" (not included on VH1's list, although "Buddy Holly" is #59)
  8. Bare Naked Ladies "One Week" (#72 on VH1's list)
  9. Bush "Glycerine" (not included on VH1's list)
  10. Red Hot Chili Peppers "Under the Bridge" (#15 on VH1's list)
  11. Oasis "Wonderwall" (#35 on VH1's list)
  12. Limp Bizkit "Nookie" (not included on VH1's list)
