Top 10 best songs of the 90's: VH1's list sucks I'm doing it better

VH1 utterly and completely failed on their top 100 list, but more importantly they failed on their top 10 list on best song from the 90's. Take a look:

01. Nirvana "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
02. U2 "One"
03. Backstreet Boys "I Want It That Way"
04. Whitney Houston "I Will Always Love You"
05. Madonna "Vogue"
06. Sir Mix-A-Lot "Baby Got Back"
07. Britney Spears "...Baby One More Time"
08. TLC"Waterfalls"
09. R.E.M. "Losing My Religion"
10. Sinéad O'Connor "Nothing Compares 2 U"

What the fuck, Britney Spears, Madonna, Sir Mix-A-Lot, and the Backstreet boys shouldn't even be on the top 100 list! All the other ones aren't bad, and while I don't appreciate Whitney Houston's music she does have a lot of talent and an incredible voice. However, none of these songs are top 10 material. I don't blame VH1 completely though, people did vote on this list and they did have to comply. I don't blame the people entirely who voted either, its not their fault they where born stupid. Mostly I blame society and the goverment, for slowly decreasing the average IQ of the human species every day.

But that's okay because I've come up with an entirely new list to counter the VH1 list of horrors. Mind you, many of these songs where on the VH1 list, they where just very low ranked, and some weren't even on the list!

10.Korn: Freak on a Leash

To be honest, I really, really, REALLY despise this band. However, this is one of the few songs by them I can actually listen to. Despite being probaly the song I least like on the list, I still think it deserves the #10 spot simply because of the popularity and influence it held in the 90's. Freak on a Leash was #69 on VH1's list.

9.Third Eye Blind: Semi-Charmed Life

It's catchy, happy, and it's all about having sex and drugs, what's not to like about it? VH1 ranked this song 34 on there list, it was followed by the Spice girls "if you wanna be my lover" at 33. WTF where the voters thinking....

8. Alice in Chains Rooster

Great song from possibly the greatest grundge band of the 90's. This band's song
rofl stomps on Nirvan's "Smells like a teen spirt". While Layne Staley my have not had as much of an influence on Grundge as Curt Cobain did, he is still in my opinion a far better musican than Curty will ever be. (that's right I called him Curty). Alice in Chains was on the list with their song "Man in the box" at #50.

7.Oasis: Wonder Wall

The 90's just seemed to boom with great bands from england. Oasis was one of them, and it's unfortunate that the band had so many internal conflicts that stiffled them during the 90's from producing more music. Wonderwall in my opinion is a classic that we will hear being played decades from now. It was #35 on VH1's list.

6.Beck: Loser

Beck is a great band over all. Most of their songs are about everyday problems that most teenagers can relate to. Loser is no different, and its pure randomness and awsomeness puts it at #6 on this list. Sadly, Loser was only #22 on VH1's list.

5.Pearl Jam: Alive

Do you know that Pearl Jam means semon? Well now you do. Anyway Pearl Jam is also another note worhty grundge band from the 90's. Alive starts off with a mother telling her son that he never really knew his real dad. Then it turns into a song about incest between a mother and son, bet you didn't know that either right?

4.Smashing Pumpkins: 1979

Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness was possibly one of the greatest albums from the 90's. From that album emerged 1979 by the Smashing Pumpkins, one of their most memorable and greatest songs. The Smashing Pumpkins weren't even on VH1's seriously.

3.Radiohead: Paranoid Android

A song inspired by a character from hitch hikers guide to the galaxy, but a great song none the less. Radiohead released this song on the Album "OK Computer" which was one of the top selling albums in the U.K. and U.S. Radiohead's song "Creep" (which I should mention is one of their most mediocre songs by far, and unfortunetly most popular.) was featured on the list at #31, followed by NSYNC "Tearing up my heart". Rofl buckets.

2.Sound Garden: Black Hole Sun

Amazing song from an even more amazing band. Chris Cornell (lead singer) was one of the most influencial music figures from the 90's. Not to mention he has probaly one of the best "rock voices" of the century. This song was on WH1'S list at # 25.


1. Temple of the Dog: Hunger Strike

What do you get when you combine Pearl Jam and Soundgarden? You get Temple of the Dog the greatest one-project grundge band to emerge from the 90's. By far their best song is Hunger Strike, which combines the instumental talent of both bands as well as Eddie Venders and Chris Cornells vocals. Simply orgasmic...

  1. I like how your list combines most of your favorite bands. It's a good list, although the last video is broken.

  2. wtf, are you saying. Korn, Beck, Soundgarden, Oasis are far from being my favorite bands although I think their good. Granted, Radiohead is my favoirte band of all time, and pearl jam and Alice in chains are up there. The video works fine for me however try a different browser.
