Top 10 Best Rock Songs of the ‘90s
That streaking music video may have helped get them a little extra attention, too. From Jane's Addiction's second studio album, 'Ritual de lo Habitual,' "Been Caught Stealing" is an all-out jam with a bizarre and hilarious music video to boot. The world might be a vampire according to Billy Corgan, but one thing's for certain: "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" doesn't suck. Faith No More's biggest hit "Epic" was released in January when the decade still had that "new decade smell," if you will. To say it set a high bar for the rock genre is an understatement. Green Day was just seen as everyone's favorite bratty punk band, and then they released "Good Riddance Time of Your Life " and showed a completely different side to them.
"Lightning Crashes" (1994)
The Nineties music boom was a gold rush for singles — everywhere you went on the radio, you heard a high-speed collision of different beats. Every style of music out there was booming, from grunge to gangsta rap, from dancehall to disco, from riot-grrrl punk to TRL midriff mall-pop, with a thousand different electronica schools and nearly as many Wu-Tang solo records. Whatever kind of noise was ringing your bells, the Nineties held more of it than any fan could absorb. But these 50 crucial songs capture glorious moments from all over the Nineties music explosion — hits, obscurities, cult classics, dance-floor jams, guitar ragers, karaoke standards. Here we are now. Entertain us. Out of nowhere and soon to return, quasi-grunge kids from Boston with exactly one perfect song in them: a sad girl singing barely comprehensible words about a flashlight and feeling her way around in the dark.
Here are the greatest '90s rock songs, ranked by fans everywhere. The '90s were an interesting time for rock. The decade ushered in the emergence of grunge, which knocked well-known pop artists, like Michael Jackson, off the top of the charts. Nirvana was the most famous band of all time, and other artists like Pearl Jam and Soundgarden followed suit. However, grunge died off toward the tail-end of the '90s. In its place, pop-punk acts rose to prominence as well as nu-metal artists. No matter which genre you liked best, they all rocked hard. Others, like "Buddy Holly" by Weezer, had a bit more fun. It didn't necessarily elicit headbanging, but the music video was great, and Weezer has continued that same self-deprecating humor to this day.
