How about the song that was at number 1 the longest in the 90s one sweet day. What a joke of a list.

sarah 2 years ago

this is more like most popular or maybe most memorable songs of the 90s....definitely not best. but even for most popular, there are some songs that i can't believe aren't on here...like boyz II men's i'll make love to you for example. that song was huge.


Tiffany Vuong 2 years ago

Let's be honest..Red Hot Chili Peppers are the best band that exist in the 90's..and they are not on this list..with two albums BssM and californication, that are revolutionary , for the band that camed after them..so basically this list is shit

Not a fan of most of the tracks, but you simply can't deny their popularity. Thanks for sharing the info, a vote up from here :)


Rodger 3 years ago

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.


Jesse 3 years ago

I don't care about Destiny's Child "Say My Name"'s on this list, Beyonce really wasn't noticeable back in the 90's she just started to get famous in like the year 2003, ok Mr. Eduardo Mc-who ever the hell you areGHANEY, LOL.

As long as Destiny's Child "Say My Name" made the list I'm alright with the list, Beyonce is the best of the R&B '90s.


CoasterBud 3 years ago

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!


slynn71 3 years ago

Where's "Personal Jesus" or "Enjoy the Silence"... ok I understand VH1 might be DM haters. But c'mon Marey Carey/Boyz II Men - One Sweet Day...The longest running #1 in history!!! Wow... You guys really "screwed the pooch"... Especially if you are going by sales, billboardcharts, or anything else!!

This list is total bullshit! Where the hell is Pantera's Cemetery Gates or Walk? How about AC/DC's Thunderstruck? Its surprising that not a lot of people know that that song came out in 1990! 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 a great late '90s Song, besides Backstreet Boys "I Want It That Way" (1999). They both deserve to make this list...

Destiny's Child "Say My Name" is a 90's Song only the Video came out in the early 2000's but the actual Song is a 90's Song.

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 Mcghaney 3 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 Greene Jr. profile image

George Greene Jr. 3 years ago from California PA

Can agree with all but the fugees cover of killing me softly.. Only Roberta Flack can do that song justice! i agree the Fugees are a decent band but I just do not like their cover of that song.


Eduardo Mcghaney profile image

Eduardo Mcghaney 3 years ago from Jacksonville, Florida

My favorite '90s artists and songs are TLC "Waterfalls", Mariah Carey "Vision Of Love", Destiny's Child "Say My Name", Fugees "Killing Me Softly", Digital Underground "The Humpty Dance", Missy Elliot "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)", these are my Favorite artists on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's, especially Destiny's Child Say My Name lol, I am glad to be a 90's Kid lol.

Eduardo Mcghaney 3 years ago from Jacksonville, Florida

Love Destiny's Child Say My Name WOW I am glad VH1 put Destiny's Child on the list.


Eduardo McGhaney 3 years ago

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.

George Greene Jr. 3 years ago from California PA

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!

If there's any top 100 list that could potentially include Bitter Sweet Symphony, and it doesn't include Bitter Sweet Symphony, then it, quite frankly, is a shit list.


Eduardo Mcghaney profile image

Eduardo Mcghaney 3 years ago from Jacksonville, Florida

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.

George Greene Jr. 3 years ago from California PA

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!!!!


pippin73 3 years ago

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.

Holly 3 years ago

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.

Anonymous 3 years ago

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!!!!


OldSkl 3 years ago

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.

Ken Carrier 3 years ago from Cincinnati, Ohio

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

jekylwhispy 3 years ago

yeah, this is why voting is worthless. the problem here is that, yeah, it seems like a good idea to let popular opinion decide the best of, but most people don't dedicate as much time and energy as is necessary to the religion of popular music to be able to offer any legitimate summary of a decade of music. i, for one, believe that the 90's were the best decade of music, but not for boy bands or any other corporate made musician/group. the 90's, to me, was significant for music because anybody and their brothermother could get into that mainstream success if only they wrote at least one great, catchy song. it seems like the best decade for the musician who's out there to make it and not just for art's sake. but even for the latter category you've got a plethora of bands who didn't bother with popular consensus what was acceptable music (thinking Mr. Bungle, Modest Mouse, Melt Banana (?), even NIN (Reznor's music was revolutionary and not particularly pleasant), anyway. here i stop

No Stone Temple Pilots? Would expect at least one of Plush or Interstate Lovesong, if not both.

Lots of one hit wonders on there, not that a top 100 songs of the 90's should discriminate against one-hit wonders, but some recognition for STP would have been appropriate, in my opinion.

@Marcus - Whitney Houston was already a huge star by 1992. She had major record label backing and promotional support at this time. Nirvana had not. They had only finished their second album.

"I will always love you" has aged badly, but "Smells like teen spirit" still retains something....

Just a Joke. No Smashing Pumpkins (Bullet with butterfly wings, Today), James (Sit Down, Born of Frustration), The Verve (Lucky Man). These songs should not be forgotten about. Radiohead have much better songs than Creep and the top 2 in the list will only sound great to anybody who has not heard them 100 times already

I Love this List not only does it bring back Memories but it Truely makes me feel like a '90s Kid, being that I was Born on April 6th, 1990. And I Love that they put Destiny's Child "Say My Name" #17 I Love Destiny's Child they were a Big 90s Part of my Upbringing Back Then. And Beyonce Knowles Ruled 2 Decades of Music the 90's and the 00's along with Destiny's Child. I Like when when VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's first comes on and they show all the Artists before the Show actually Begins, and they put And showed a Glimpse of Beyonce Knowles I Lovedddddd that Part this Series Rocked it made me Fall in Love with the '90s even more.

I really don't think Destiny's Child "Say My Name" was not all that Great of the 90's, they could of Slid Back a lot of Slots on this 90s List, why are a Late '90s Song is almost #1, Destiny's Child was just OKAY of the 90's.


Joey. InnerMariahFan. 4 years ago

I Love Mariah Carey she is the true Definition of the '90s, her Singing Voice Alone was Magical and than she was Beautiful, Mariah Carey could Belt out a Song hitting High Notes with her High Pitch Voice with her 7 Octave Vocal Range she has the Highest Female Vocal Range Ever Whitney Houston Can't even reach the Great Voice Potential of Mariah Carey, Mariah Carey "Vision of Love" Song still till this day is the most Difficult Song to try to Sing , and that's why Mariah Carey is Voted on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's, Mariah Carey is one of my Favorite Artists of the 90s. Love Mariah Carey.


Eduardo. The '90s Kid, Born August, 8th, 1990. 4 years ago

I Vote for Destiny's Child Say My Name Song, the "Say My Name" Song is the really 1st True R&B Record from the '90s, and that's why it Rank #17 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's... The list... Beyonce Knowles is a Talented Belting Singer and Groovey Dancer she Ruled both Decades the '90s and the '00s, and that's why Destiny's Child "Say My Name" made this '90s list it may was a Mid-Late 90s Song but it still made this list of the 90's and 1990s.

If you are going by actual chart position based on sales and airplay, there are top 100 lists by year at http://www.musicinthenineties.com. If you do not go by statistics, then it is all up to the discretion and opion of the list make and extremly biased on that person's opinion.

CM 4 years ago

I watched the 5 part special where they presented the songs that people chose as the top 100. There are a couple of artists that I can't stand; I'm looking at you Celine Dion and Hanson; and some songs that might not be on my top 100, but I can't argue with this list. Every song there had a big impact on the 90's as they, changed music, laid the foundation for other artists, and they continue to survive as people's favorite songs. I especially don't disagree with Teen Spirit being at the top of the list. It, along with some of the other songs on the list, made the Seattle grunge rock scene so amazing. I grew up in the 90's and Nirvana definitely spoke to me more than any other band on the list.

Eduardo 4 years ago

Mariah Carey Five-Octave Vocal Range is a Winner MARIAH should be #1 on this List with Vision Of Love, and Mariah Carey also has the ability to reach High Notes Beyond the 7th Octave and she is Famed for her use of the Whistle Register so that means Mariah Carey Singing Covers over Eight-Octaves wow I think Mariah Carey was more Famous of the 90's than Nirvana I never even heard of Nirvana and I was Born in 1990 so that means that I am a 90's Baby but I never heard of Nirvana but I Absolutely heard and know the Music of Mariah Carey and that high Opera Singing Vocals she have, I Have All of Mariah Carey Albums and Filmography she is one of my Favorite 90's Artists on this List and is one of the Biggest and I do mean (ONE) of the Biggest Celebrities in Hollywood and Greatest Singers of All Time.

Destiny's Child Say My Name has to be one of the best 90's song on this List I totally agree with EDUARDO he is right on this one, and I don't think Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit should not be #1 that song I Don't really remember that song I never even heard of Nirvana, but I think Mariah Carey Vision Of Love song should be the #1 song of the decade because Mariah Carey can sing and hit high notes that everybody wish they can do and this is my Comment.


Eduardo the Puerto Rican that was raised in the 90's/ 1990's Decade 4 years ago

Mariah Carey and Destiny's Child have my Vote, Mariah Carey five- octave vocal range she can hit the highest high note that only Dogs can hear with the song Vision Of Love, and Destiny's Child are sultry they had Smooth voices and Dance Routines enough to shake a romp at especially with the song Say My Name best 90's songs and 90's Artist(s).

Eduardo 4 years ago

Destiny's Child Say My Name I will always love, but Korn Freak On The Leash is by far the best song on this list as well I remember when I first seen the Korn music video for Freak On The Leash and I r#member that Bullet just kept flying through my t.v. And I thought the Bullet was coming towards my way and that really brought back 90's memories for me and Korn Freak On The Leash song, Jonathan Davis is a great rock screamer whenever he sings, Fieldy of Korn is a great Bassist and I Love Destiny's Child Say My Name when I first heard that song I was trippin' I was like Wowww this is the shit I love SAY MY NAME Song by Destiny's Child I remember the music video too as well I remember Beyonce Knowles Dance moves in the video, and I was 9 years old when Say My Name song of Destiny's Child came out and it id a great thing to see songs you grew up listening to in the 90's and it's a great thing to see your favorite 90's artists make the VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's List, Long Live the 90's that I am glad to say I was apart of when I Grew up in the 90's.

Why is Oasis Wonderwall song ranked and voted number 35 that song should be #5, and Destiny's Child Say My Name song should be #4, Oasis Liam Gallagher is the best and his brother Noell Gallagher.

come on.......no offspring? SELF ESTEEM!!!!!! Still a HUGE hit. Gone Away is one of the offspring's best songs. And I agree michael jackson was still huge in the 90's.

Where is anything by rage against the machine? Seriously, one of the most influential and controversial bands of the 90's.


Eduardo the Puerto Rican of the 90's. 4 years ago

They changed the list a little bit, because Lenny Kravitz Are you gonna go my Way was #78 now they replaced Lenny Kravitz with Semisonic Closing Time song at #78, and they took 2pac off of the list and they took Prince off of the list and they took BLACKstreet from off of the list and replaced them with other 90's songs on VH1 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's list I just think God that they did not take any of my 90's artists off of the list that I grew up listening to in the 90's i'm Glad they did not take Missy Elliot off of the list and I am Glad that VH1 did not take Destiny's Child SAY MY NAME Song off of the 90's ewwwwwww thank God.

Eduardo the Puerto Rican of the 90's 4 years ago

I think this list is shit because I feel that Mariah Carey Vision Of Love should be number 1, and Destiny's Child Say My Name song should be number 2, and Korn Freak On A Leash shoul be number 19, and Alice In Chains Man In The Box should be number 3 Bitches.


JFR 4 years ago

Foo Fighters should have been in the top 100 for a loat of their songs. That's why I kind of hate Vh1. They start off and end with some badass songs, but in the middle, it kind of feels like they just threw random shit in there. :\

Eduardo 4 years ago

Destiny's Child Say My Name is by far the best 90's song on this list, because they ranked at number 17 on this vh1 90's list, and I think that is really good for Destiny's Child being that they weren't around in the early or mid 90's, Destiny's Child were more of late 90's so being that they rank high at number 17 I think that's pretty Damn Good for Destiny's Child/ Beyonce Knowles.


LSUfan 4 years ago

Backstreet Boys were the only band I could ever buy all the albums and listen to all the songs and actually like every song. In my book, they'll always be number one. A lot of those other people just suck! Backstreet fan forever!!


Samus 4 years ago

Rage Against The Machine should have been on here for sure. That band redefined rap music and rock music. Not many bands can claim that. And again, where's Smashing Pumpkins? Blur? Verve? And Alice In Chains should have been in the top 5. Same with Pearl Jam. Grunge should be dominating the list. Not worthless one-hit-wonders. At LEAST Nirvana made it to the top. They were the band of the 90s. (And what about Otherside by Red Hot Chili Peppers???)


Eduardo the Puerto Rican of the 90's. 4 years ago

Love the Hispanic and Latin artists on this 90's vh1 list, Ricky Martin the best Puerto Rican artust on this list love Christina Aguilera she is half Ecuador, love Fieldy of Korn he is Half Mexican, love Howie Dorough of the Backstreet Boys he is half- Puerto Rican, like Gerardo Rico Suave he is Ecuador love Mariah Carey she is half Afro- Venezuelan there are Alot of Hispanic artist on this vh1 100 greatest songs of the 90's list and I love it, because I am half Puerto Rican myself and I am glad to see Alot of Latin Artists on this 90's list.

Destiny's Child Say My Name was ranked number 17, that is ranked wayyyy too high for Destiny's Child a girl group that only was around in the late 90's and Mariah Carey should of been number 2 because she is 90's the song Vision Of Love was the best 90's song on the list and TLC Waterfalls should of been ranked number 3, that's just my opinion.

A lot of the songs on here are not even the artists' best songs of the 90's let alone the best of the 90's in general. Lenny Kravitz "It Ain't Over Til It's Over" Pearl Jam "Betterman" and Mariah Carey "Always Be My Baby" or "One Sweet Day". Horrible Horrible list

I was born on August, 8, 1990 and I was just getting started to just really enjoy growing up in the 90's being that I was born in the year 1990, and I just remember all of these 90's songs especially me growing up listening to Mariah Carey, TLC, Destiny's Child, The Fugees, Digital Underground, Missy Elliot, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and I enjoyed every last decade growing up in the 90's, but my favorite 90's artists on this list is Destiny's Child and their 90's song that I love so much Say My Name.

Eduardo the 90's baby 4 years ago

I remember the Disney show Smart Guy, and I remember Destiny's Child made an appearance on the Show and performed the No No No part 2 Song, and it was so great, so 90's, because Beyonce Knowles was awesomely killing the Dance Routine and the Smart Guy Sitcom with Destiny's Child as a special guests brings back so much 90's memories for me being that I grew up in the 90's, and Destiny's Child Say My Name song made the vh1 100 greatest songs of the 90's list and was their best 90's song in the 90's love and miss the 90's.

I like the list and it introduced me to a lot of great songs, like Alice in Chains or The Breeders, which I would have never known.

Other than Backstreet Boys, Destiny's Child and Britney, I also like the Top 20, and beyond.

It is great to see Oasis and Spin Doctors, among others get some recognition.

I also like the variety, but then I stop here.

Mike 4 years ago

Not really sure what they are basing it on. It clearly isn't by sales as Elton John's "Candle In The Wind" would be #1. It isn't based on chart performance as Nirvana just barely cracked the top 10 when it came out with "Smells Like Teen Spirit." There's more accurate listings. www.musicinthenineties.com has some good lists based on chart performance.


Riley 4 years ago

What? Good list, but when I think of a list of great songs from the 90's era, I think of songs that still carry on today. Where's candlebox? Where's easy e? Wheres TLC? George straight? Garth brooks? The last of the true country era was in the 90's! The beginning of the hip hop Compton era was in the 90's. You had so many break through bands that are setting examples, even today. How many people out there jammed to "bobby Magee", "waterfalls", "far behind", "boyz in da hood", "changes", "should of been a cowboy", "callin baton rouge", "shameless", in don't even have to post who sings these songs. That's how awesome they were. Tim McGraw was at his best in the 90's, who am I kidding everyone hit it best in the 90's. But the list should not include songs that stayed in the 90's. Such as, Hanson, presidents of the united states, beck.. Etc.

Funny how you guys think you know so much about music because you like rock bands and bash all pop groups out there. Even if you don't want to see it, they were talented and better singers and dancers than today's artists. Broaden your horizons a bit and don't be so judgmental on pop music and just let yourself enjoy music for what it is and not the image behind it. Rock fans care more about a bands image than pop fans even though they think it's the other way around. You guys freak out too much. Getting upset because I want it that way is 3rd? It's one of the best pop songs of all TIME. And they really are great singers. And besides, MTV is centered around pop music anyway

2. Mariah Carey - Vision Of Love

3. TLC - Waterfalls

4. Alice In Chains - Man In the Box

5. Pearl Jam - Jeremy

6. Aaliyah - Back & Forth

7. Boyz II Men - Motownphilly

8. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Give It Away

9. Mary J. Blige - Real Love

10. Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun

And Spears, the BSB, Madonna, Sir Mix-A-Lot, NSYNC, Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer, Christina Aguilira, Hanson, Ricky Martin, Right Said Fred, Gerardo, Billy Ray Cyrus, Nelson, and especially the Spice Girls should all be taken off this list. Replace them for RATM, STP, NIN, The Offspring, Toni Braxton, Janet Jackson, SWV, Faith Evans, Monica, Busta Rhymes, DMX, Xscape, and the Smashing Pumpkins and you got a great list for sure.

OK, so here I was about to wax satyrical about the old days, but here I have sh*tloads of other old farts doin the same dam thing....man I feel old...and I only just turned 38 TODAY! Yay, my birthday anniversary!....

This new crap just don't do it for me anymore, especially since this bullsh*t (insert nationality here) Idol came along.

Simon Clown should be ashamed...supposed to be a big music producer, yet reduced to trying to commercialise his friggin job...way to go loser.

Can't find them on his own,so he needs other has-beens to try and find the next flash-in-the-pan.

Way to go, douchebag.

Now we gotta waste our time listening to the crap you had to listen to when you started off...@sshole.

Screw you for inundating our earholes with rubbish, when there were perfectly good tunes to listen to in the friggin first place.

BTW, who remembers who won one of those FIVE YEARS AGO? And do you still listen to them?

Didn't think so.

There's a reason why they get called classics. Everybody knows them, even if it's just a passing knowledge of the melody.

IDOL MUST DIE!!!!

Let's put that clown out of a job.

Nuff said.

worst songs 5 years ago

interesting how a lot of these songs were on Rolling Stone's recent "Worst songs of the 90s" list. with this chart, i think they were mostly going for the biggest hits on the pop charts in the 90s, and as i recall, there weren't many rock songs or even good songs in general that were big pop hits in the 90s, unlike the 80s, which saw a lot of good rock songs become pop hits.

BSB deserved to be in the top 10,though not a 3 and Britney certainly didn't deserve it.

i can't believe people are complaining about Michael Jackson not being on the 90s list. people forget that his music in the 90s wasn't all that great, and that it got REALLY bad once he put on the laughable HIStory album in '95. the 80s was the decade of MJ's good music, not the 90s. the people whining on here are probably teenagers who didn't experience how irrelevant and unpopular MJ was in the 90s, because they were too young or not even alive. i remember how starting in 1993, when i was 12 and MJ had his first child molestation accusation, and afterward, MJ was the butt of every joke kids came up with in junior high and high school. kids would make fun of you if you said you liked him. he was definitely not cool for most of the 90s. and yeah, i also agree with those people above that Sublime sucked. i also find it strange how they included all the pop crap from the 90s, like the boybands and pop bimbos, but they included heavy songs like Alice in Chains' Man in the Box, which was never a pop hit and song that most people wouldn't know. they need to make a separate best ROCK songs of the 90s list. you can't have Hanson and Celine Dion right next to actual good artists like Metallica and Beastie Boys on a "best songs" list.

david mackaye 5 years ago

The 90s was an okay decade for music. The bubblegum pop bimbos like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera were such shit and the boy bands were all crappy singers but the 90s was mostly good. NIN should have been on here though. The Smashing Pumpkins not being here is a tragedy. How in creation did the Macarena not get on here? Don't get me wrong ,I hate that song ,but it is the greatest one hit wonder of all time! BNL's song should have been If I Had A 1,000,000. So much better than One Week! Green Day should have had one more song ,Welcome to Paradise ,Longview ,or Basket Case ,all could have been on there. Tonic ,Deep Blue Something ,and ,like them or not ,Smash Mouth ,should have all been on there. Mambo number 5 should have been there too. I'm sorry people but ,apart from the pot smokers of the decade ,no one knows sublime. Nelson looked like two sweeddish bimbos in the 90s. I'm glad they cut their hair. Alice In Chains should have had Would on there as well. In chart standings that song was much higher than Man On The Box and since this list is based on the pop charts ,(as evidence by all bimbo pop ,boy bands ,and rap crap ), that should have been on the list. Nirvana needed more representation as well. They could have at least put In Bloom on the list to go with Smells Like Teen Spirit. The 90s were an okay decade for music but this list needs some huge changes.

RANDOMMMMMMMMMM


Umm... What? 5 years ago

I want to see a list with the best music on there, not necessarily the most popular. In some cases, there is a big difference (i.e. The Backstreet Boys/Brittney Spears). I'm having a really hard time understanding how there isn't any Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters, or any other great bands that made 90's music what it is. When I think 90's, I'm not thinking Spears and Backstreet Boys... Just saying...


doogie 5 years ago

hate to break it to you, Pao, but MJ kinda sucked for the majority of the 90s. sure, Dangerous was a good album, but that came out in '91, and it was all downhill after that. the HIStory album, well just Disc 2, from '95 sucked pretty badly. i really could only see Black or White as being a good enough song from his 90s output to make the list. certainly not one of his overly-dramatic "change the world" songs like Heal the World or Earth Song. the real surprise is the fact that his sister Janet isn't on the list. she had plenty of number 1 hits in the 90s and was right up there with Mariah and Whitney in terms of 1990s diva popularity.


PAO 5 years ago

WHERE THE $%&^ IS MICHAEL JACKSON?!?!

He was the greatest artist who ever lived. He made better, & more meaningful songs than anybody. And he every song he made in the 90s were great.

Does VH1 not rememeber.

"Remember the Time"

"Heal the World"

"Earth Song"

"You Are Not Alone"

"They Don't Care About Us"

FTGoinHard 5 years ago

eh ( fller because my comment was rather short )


doogie 5 years ago

well, this list is crap, but i agree with you that this list was mostly based of off 1990s Billboard pop chart top 20 hits, with a few exceptions thrown in there. that's why you don't see many good 90s rock songs on here. pop stations in the 90s hardly played any of the good alternative rock, or good rock in general, that you'd hear on rock stations back then. that's why they mostly just went for the most popular hits that were big on pop radio when assembling this list, which makes it surprising, however, that they didn't include Boyz II Men or Ace of Base on here.


cmmns3nse 5 years ago

ok so this list was based off of charts in the 90's so for those who think that other bands should be on this list then they should of had highly ranked hits that made it on the charts, sorry but quit complaining. For some people these songs bring back great memories so to put this down and calling this list crap is simply opinion NOT FACT!

Where is Enjoy the Silence, Teardrop, Regret, Grace, It was a Good Day, Regulate, Return of the Mack,Weak,Plowed, First of the Month, Pink Cigarette, Pingpong, Friday I'm in Love, Dear Mama, or anything close to a decent song on this list.

this list is simply the "most popular songs of the 90s," not the "most timeless songs of the 90s that still sound good today." i bet most people wouldn't be caught dead playing some of these songs today, or having them on their Ipod. and there's a reason why you don't hear these songs on the radio anymore. i sure don't know anyone who still listens to Backstreet Boys, Britney, Christina, N'sync, Hanson, Spice Girls, MC Hammer, Vanilla Ice, Celine Dion, Ricky Martin, C+C Music Factory, etc. this list is more like a 90s pop music canon for people to look back on and say, "wow, we actually loved those songs back then?"

missing the 90s 5 years ago

it's good to hear you say that, Daisha. i was worried that most teenagers today associated the 90s with boy bands, teen-pop princesses, and all the crappy one-hit pop wonders on this list. but there really was so much good rock to come out of the decade, and it's too bad that almost none of it is represented here (but there is the obvious Nirvana choice at #1, of course). plus, i think most true music-loving people who lived through the 90s have fonder memories of the rock that came out of the decade.


Tara 5 years ago

daisha 5 years ago

uhm, where the HELL is bush and gin blossoms and candlebox? theirs a little too much pop in this list and the 90s was not mostly pop, it was mostly rock. i think "you" by candlebox could definitely have replaced rico suave. i was born in 1995 and i feel this list is very misleading, though i wasnt around to experience it unfortunately, i listen know, and these songs dont scream 90s the way other iconic songs of this era do. my opinion.

Really is some bull shiza. If nothing else, Tool needed to be somewhere on the list. Given, they hardly make it onto any top 100 charts, they still sell out every show, every time. Plus, how many of these bands are still together with their original members growing as artists and not capitalists? I really don't think you can make an accurate list in which metallica and hanson only two positions from each other.


list critic 5 years ago

this list is more like the most "memorable" songs of the 90s, not necessarily the "greatest." voters were probably pitching in songs that they remembered the best, even if they didn't think they were such great songs that would stand the test of time. "i want it that way," "baby got back," "baby one more time," "u can't touch this," and "MMMBop," which are all in the Top 20, are examples. memorable songs? of course. but GREAT songs? not really. also, some of these songs weren't even really well-known hits, or hits at all, like the included songs by Liz Phair, Geto Boys, Sophie B. Hawkins, The Breeders, Missy Elliott, and Alice in Chains.


Jeff 5 years ago

I think the list becomes lame when you find that no bands/singers have more than one song on the list. How can you say this is the Top 100 songs yet limit yourselves? I'm sure that Nirvana's 2nd GREATEST song is better than most of these (i.e. Barely Breathing or Never Said).

I agree with "yappik". Where the heck is "Black Or White" by Michael Jackson? Or one of MJ's other great 90's songs, like "Earth Song" or "They Dn't Care About Us"?

this list is almost perfect for my opinion,but somehow i think that some other awesome songs are missing:

1."ang huling el bimbo-Eraserheads(if this song is has an english lyrics,it would absolutely be on top 10 af any list about"greatest songs of all time".it's so awesome so please look it up on the net.i can somehow understan the lyrics due to its wonderful melody

2.heart shaped box

3in bloom

4.never surrender-corey hart

5.thunderstruck-ACDC

6.the unforgiven-metallica

7.dumb-nirvana

8.who made who-ACDC

9.lithium-nirvana

10.sweet child o'mine-Gn'R

hey,i think all i have listed above should be included,am i right class?

i agree with the previous commenter who said Nirvana was overrated, and that it's weird to put them at number 1. seriously, Smells like Teen Spirit was only big for a few months in '92, and then nobody really cared about Nirvana by the end of that year. rock radio and MTV only started playing Nirvana again after Kurt shot himself, which gave him "rock god" status. yet, everyone seems to think they were this amazing band that "changed music in the 90s." just how long was grunge music popular again? two years, maybe? as i recall, grunge was pretty much a passed and dead fad by the mid-90s.

vaunna 5 years ago

no selina "dreaming of you", "i could fall in love" everybody knows "bidi bidi bom bom" when they hear it "como la flor" was a hit as well.


John 5 years ago

Wow! "End of the Road", "I'll Make Love To You", "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday", "One Sweet Day", "Water Runs Dry", "On Bended Knee" just to name a few. How the hell do you leave Boyz 2 Men off the list? They broke the record for consecutive weeks at number 1 on the charts...TWICE! This list is friggin retarded! VH1 proves once more why it's a pathetic network!


Timber 5 years ago

Great List - Brings back a lot of memories. Think they missed on a lot of the R&B/Hip-Hop/Rap songs, but that's me. Some I knew, most I'd never heard before - and could think of others I heard more back then.

I think #1 should have been Everybody by the Backstreet Boys! I love the Backstreet Boys! I still rock out to them everyday. :) They are by far the best band ever!

Backstreet Boys For Life!!!!!!!!!!

"BACKSTREETS BACK! ALRIGHT!"

:D

@Craig, are you smoking something? Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" was LEGIONS upon LEGIONS more popular than "Smells Like Teen CRAP"...remember, ONLY the SMALL PERCENTAGE of people (Grunge rock fans) KNEW or CARED about Nirvana...a VERY forgettable band that the WHITE MEDIA has always trumpted. At the end of the day, they were FORGETTABLE and had next to no hits..."Smells Like Teen Spirit" STRUGGLED to even reach #4 on the Top 10, and the video was GARBAGE and CHEAP!
