Thread: Classic 90s Songs

    Default Classic 90s Songs

    There seem to be very few Classic 00s songs. I thought the internet has fractured modern popular music so much there's got to be some brilliant bands, not necessarily popular, that are churning out classics.

    Any songs produced in the 90s that you consider a classic?

    So many, (I'll limit mine to 5 for now)....

    "Drawing Flies" - Soundgarden (before they went psychedelic fluff)

    "Of Wolf and Man" - Metallica ( album had a lot great songs but this was my fave )

    "What You Give" - Tesla

    "Nothing Compares 2 U" - Sinead O'Connor ( Prince is a talented songwriter and Sinead nailed this one)

    "Hurricane Blues" - Linton Kwesi Johnson ( ...running from the pollution of a contrived heart.... )

    Well a few obvious ones, but most definately classics in the biggest sense:
    Teen spirit by Nirvana
    Wonderwall or live forever by Oasis
    Killing in the Name of or bombtrack by rage against the machine
    song 2 by blur
    Glycerine by Bush
    Bittersweet symphony by the Verve
    Black album by mettalica
    ...

    you get my drift.

    I have a less-than-secret love for 90s songs.

    So here's a few.

    Skee-Lo - I Wish
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icr0eW1fRSs

    The Real McCoy - Another Night
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNbRMG-4wAI

    Harvey Danger - Flagpole Sitta (no idea wtf the video is about)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUPBIdyDHRE

    But besides the kitschy music, there were also some great artists: NIN, Beck, Deep Forest, The Cranberries, etc.. too many to name.

    The 90s were a weird decade but the music is lasting better than I had expected.

    baby one more time- by Britney Spears

    Because the 90s were filled with pop. Some NSYNC, Backstreetboyz, Hanson, etc. songs should probably be mentioned as well. Admit it. No one can resist good mind-deadening pop and the 90s pop stars knew what they were doing.

    Why did the chicken cross the road?

    So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road,
    but also with fear, for whom among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the princely
    chicken's dominion maintained. ~Machiavelli

    Gah, Skee-Lo XD

    Yeah, 90s had a little of everything. Hip Hop was exploding and rock was trying to find the next-big-thing after Cobain's death. Nu-Metal, Electronica, when nothing stuck, pop music filled in.

    Some more:

    "Knockin Boots" - Candyman

    "Gonna Make You Sweat" - C & C Music Factory

    "No Rain" - Blind Melon

    "Dear Mama" - 2Pac

    "Throw Your Set In the Air" - Cypress Hill

    I doubt we'll forget the big ones from Blur and Oasis anytime soon.

    "Candle in the wind" will likely live forever as well.
    Still maintain that crying on the pitch should warrant a 3 match ban

    Anything by Soul Coughing is classic in my book. Their stuff's getting yanked off YouTube, but I see MTV's got Super Bon Bon.

    Has anybody mentioned Massive Attack yet? If not, why not? Talk about an influential '90s band. The first time I heard Angel I was blown away. When that guitar comes in at 2:25 out of nowhere ...

    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    G. G. Allin's cover of "Carmelita."

    As it's a cover, I'm fairly sure it's not explicit, but be wary that it IS G. G. Allin.
