      looks like Eduardo needs to quit stuffing the ballot box with that 1 song. it wasn't that great of a song & the video wasn't as hot as you think it was...maybe back then when it came out cause the women were younger & you were a kid but go back & watch the video now & all the do is color coordinate their clothes with the walls of the room as they sing. If the group was so great, they would of stayed together singing more "great hits".

      Wait a minute Jesse, Eduardo is right about one thing Destiny's Child "Say My Name" is one of the greatest songs of the R&B 90's and Beyonce really wasn't noticeable in the late '90s, but Destiny's Child did make the VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's list ok Jesse.

      This list is completely bogus! Thats The Way Love Goes by Janet Jackson spent 6 weeks at #1 in 1993 and If was one of the biggest dance hits for the same year yet neither of them is on the list? I guess who ever came up with this list must be lacking any real musical taste or simply hate Janet Jackson. What a crock and dis to Miss Jackson!

And NO CREED! Higher, My Own Prison, With Arms Wide Open just to name a few. And the best song omitted from this junk list is Tears In Heaven by Eric Clapton. Every single one of those guys should have a song in the top 10!

      Destiny's Child "Say My Name" is on the VH1 90's Songs list, everyone thinks the Song was a Ridic because it's a 00's Song than anything but the actual Song was recorded in 1999 only the Video was released in the early 00's but the actual Song is a 90's Song EVERYBODY.

    • Eduardo Mcghaney profile image

      Eduardo Ramón McGhaney 4 years ago from Jacksonville, Florida

      Yeah I agree too Fugees Killing Me Softly was wack, but at least Destiny's Child "Say My Name" made the list, you should see the video back in the 90's Destiny's Child killed the "Say My Name" video it was great.

      George- Thanks for considering Destiny's Child "Say My Name" on the 90's VH1 list... even though Say My Name was a late '90s Song it's still a 90's Song back in the 90's only the Music Video came out in the early 2000's but the actual Song was recorded in 1999 and the Song also (Ranked: 69)'s Digitaldreamdoor.com's 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs of the 1990s and also (Ranked: 17) on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's, so technically it is a 90's Song, only the Video came out in the early 2000's Destiny's Child was a Girl Group back in the late '90s and nowadays Beyonce Knowles is better now before her Destiny's Child days Lol thanks - George.

      Eduardo- I agree to destiny's Child being there.. It was part of the music genre for the time and then that genre split and brought us today's genre of the Lady Gaga's and katy perry's. So considering that, the Spice girls should be in there well!

      Ok George but Destiny's Child "Say My Name" needs to be on this list because there are not few R&B Songs of the 90's on this list but Destiny's Child Say My Name that was a great Song back in the 90's.

      I will never ever see where "smells like Teenage Spirit" can even be considered music...I can almost understand these assholes that sing this death metal better!!!! And the rest of the list is certainly no representation of the true good music that came out of the 90's. Yes after reading some of the comments; I can see where this messed up list is more or less a compilation of what the bubblegum crowd was listening to and not taking into consideration what the rest of the world was doing. yes its teens that buy the records but its the adults who buy the concert tickets(where the big money comes in).

      Aerosmith easily could have had 2 songs, Mariah at least 3. Many acts were not even included who have paved the way for the music we are listening to here in the 10's.

      In other plain language and to quote about 75% of the commentators

      THIS LIST IS FOR THE BIRDS!!!!

      There's a lot of music missing on this list. I've put together a list of over 500 songs of the 90's including Hip-Hop, Alternative, and Grunge, that played on MTV's 120 Minutes and Headbanger's Ball and the overnight video blocks. This isn't nearly complete.

      Wow, I can't believe people are still posting on this. Anyway, I think the list is pretty good - there are some obvious ones that I think should be included, but I'm generally happy with it. I was particularly pleased that Alice in Chains made the list. I think this is really supposed to be "Top 100 most memorable songs from the 90s", not necessarily the best or most popular songs from the 90s.

      No Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, Hole, Stone Temple Pilots, Blink-182, The Cranberries, Marilyn Manson, Michael Jackson, The Offspring, etc.? The fuck? A lot of these songs are good, but most of the good ones are too high up, like "Man In The Box", "Black Hole Sun", "Shine", etc. Not only that, but the list was just way too predictable. I already knew "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana would be at the very top, with Britney Spears and other poppy shit in the top-ten with it. All in all, I'm just glad some good bands like Nirvana, u2, and R.E.M. made it to the top 10.

      I don't think a Top 100 of list of '90's songs could work out. The '90s was a pretty diverse decade, musically, with genres like Grunge, Punk, Alternative in general, Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, and such. It would only work out if each of the genres had their own lists, if they don't already.

      Definitely on board with everyone that says this list is GARBAGE!!!! Lots of songs shouldn't be on that list at all. Quick Example: @ #98 They put Prince "Get Off"...only one Prince song deserves to be on this list and its "Diamonds and Pearls" but to exclude MJ, Janet, NIN...Just BLASPHEMY!!!!

      Michael Jackson's 'Dangerous' ranks 13th on the best selling albums of all time. He released nine singles from that album. Even Dangerous' lesser known songs and many from 1995's HIStory would give a lyrical and compositional whipping to some of those featuring on the VH1 list.

      On another Jackson note, 'Janet' also saw the release on nine singles, six of which made the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10. Not a single number made the list. Let's not forget Janet's collaboration with Luther Vandross 'The Best Things in Life are Free, Runaway, Together Again and Love Will Never Do (Without You)' outside of the 1993 album.

      In my opinion, together Michael and Janet penned songs in the 90's better than half the numbers on the VH1 list.

      I think this is a great list but not a complete list. I honestly think that the 90's could have a top 200 list and it would help in making this more complete. The 90's was a breeding ground for a lot of different types of music Grunge, Rap, Hip-Hop/R&B, Slow Jamz, Boy Bands, Pop, etc... In an effort to make a more complete list I would suggest either breaking down the genre's into their own Top 100 or making the initial list larger maybe 200 to start. Either way enjoyed the memories many of these songs brought back, I miss the 90's for a lot of reasons but the music especially. thank you VH1

      I disagree with a lot of what this list has to say. But what really makes me irate is that Chumbawamba's Tubthumping NEVER MADE THE LIST!

      How do you have a 90's mix without adding it?????

      Johnny Rzeznik should personally hunt you down for having the most played song of the 90's listed all the way down at 39! Iris deserves better.
