My top 10 songs of the 90s

This list is tough to compile being that there are SO many good songs from the 90’s era. I was wondering if I should just break it down to the top 10 90s rock songs, punk, hip hop, pop, etc. or just throw them all in one list together. Maybe at some point I will do a list of the different genres. For now here is a list of some of my personal tracks of the 90s. Enjoy!

#10 Vanilla Ice – Ninja Rap
Of course Ice, Ice Baby is classic but this song still just blows me away. It’s awfully amazing and I was a HUGE Ninja Turtles fan, I remember my parents taking me to see the sequel and when Mr. Ice appears I went nuts singing along to the movie screen.

#9 Spin Doctors -Two Princes
Loved this track from the first time I heard it back in the early 90s and it’s still not old to me. I played drums when I was younger and always loved the opening drum fill that kicks this off. Saw them open for the Rolling Stones in 1994, they were great live. ‘Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong’ is also a great song from these guys.

#8 Real McCoy – Runaway
Laugh all you want but this is a major 90s pop guilty pleasure for me.

#7 Positive K – I Got A Man
I remember this being a huge single on the radio and my best friend at the time and I each had the tape, yes, tape. Oh how I miss the 90s. This song is hilarious and much needed for an 90s collection.

#6 Bone Thugs N Harmony – Crossroads
At some point I will do a list of just 90s hip hop for that is my favorite genre from the 90s era and I could go on for days. Have to throw a little bit into this list.

#5 Silverchair – Tomorrow
100 percent obsessed with this song and band the very first time I saw the video on MTV. Yes folks, MTV actually was amazing back in the day and played real music videos! I can remember trying to record this song on tape when it’d play on the radio along with recording radio interviews and anything else I could get my hands on. This band is what caused and fueled my obsession for Australia and when I went there in 2006 it was grea to talk with locals who told me everything about the band. Give this a listen, 90s rock grunge at its best!

#4 Nofx – Linoleum
Cannot leave out some classic 90s punk. Nofx is still one of my faves, still touring, and still putting out albums. Pretty impressive for a band that has never been on the radio or MTV at all.

#3 The Bloodhound Gang – The Bad Touch
Late 90s, a hilarious song and matchingly hilarious video. This one is always a hit at 90s night.

#2 Blind Melon – No Rain
One of the more underrated band of the 90s. This song was massive but I throughly enjoyed the two albums Shannon Hoon was lead vocalist for before passing away. Tragic end to a great band but what is more tragic to me is how this band and many others try to carry on under the same name with a new singer. Let it go guys!

#1 Dr. Dre Featuring Snoop Dogg – Dre Day (And Everybody’s Celebratin’)
Anyone that knows me, this an obvious for my number one choice of the 90s. This IS pure genuine hip hop at its best. Two classic artists together introducing themselves to the music world. I would hear this song on the radio being driven to and from school by my mother and once the album came out even though it had a pot leave on the cover, was titled “The Chronic” and back when tapes would have the explicit lyrics tag on it, I was lucky enough to still get my hands on this musical masterpiece. Dre & Snoop are the best hip hop duo to ever happen and that will ever happen, no questions asked. I might be the whitest person ever, so white that even my last name is White, but I can recite this entire song word for word without even the music playing!
