    Wow, this list is a complete joke, vh1 are retarded enough to not know about music

    and LoL nirvana’s song in #1? rofl, I’d rather see a Bon Jovi ballad in #1 on this list.

    “Black Diamond” by Stratovarius is the top 1 song of this decade.

  2. Bunchie says:

    I laugh at this list “Baby One More Time” over “Wonderwall” LOL

  3. Thomas Lee says:

    Very Surprised not to see N’Sync on here. “Bye Bye Bye?” anyone?..


  4. Common Sense says:

    ICE ICE BABY at #29. That is an outrage. This list no longer is credible. Goodbye.

  5. Blakee says:

    No Doubt definitely should of been in here somewhere! Or atleast some Sublime or Bush. I don’t like Vh1 as much anymore. My generation (Im 15) has horrible taste in music and apparently that’s all they pay attention to. Yeah, some good songs are on here but, it could of been so much better.

  6. Chub says:

    They only allowed a band to be on the list once. They told the story of how the band got together and what happened to them after the 90s were over, so if they let a band have more than one spot on the list they would be re-telling the same story over and over. Still doesn’t explain why one-hit wonders like Hanson, New Radicals, Marcy Playground beat out STP, NIN, and Marilyn Manson.

    • Meghan says:

      hanson was not a one hit wonder, and even if they were, it still wouldn’t matter because it is best ARTIST it is best SONG, and MMMBop was extremely popular

  7. Jake:@ says:

    what the f$$k?? peoeple these days are fags, no gnr, barely any red hot cjili peppers or any F$$$$$g aerosmith?? rage against the machines?? metallica?? just one song?? f$$k off kids of today.

  8. Ryan says:

    Oops, I missed Alice in Chains. Still, only 50? Man in the Box isnt even their best, I think Rooster is. Where are the Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Foo Fighters, Rage, Bush, No Doubt, Sublime, The Offspring, Reel Big Fish, or The Wallflowers? This list is an absolute joke. MMMM Bop is a better song than Interstate Love Song, What I Got, and Self Esteem. Good job VH1. You just lost all credibility

  9. Ryan says:

    Uh, Where are the Smashing Pumpkins and Alice in Chains? Funny, one grunge band (Nirvana) has the number one song, another (Pearl Jam) was number 11, and Alice in Chains isnt on there at all? Rooster, Dirt, Man in the Box, Them Bones… WTF??

  10. Juh says:

    where the hell is Michael Jackson???[2]

  11. jas says:

    alice in chains only made 50, they are way better than that, no pumkins or stone temple pilots, sh**t list

  12. Nikkie says:

    i agree with Ebss
    where the hell is Michael Jackson???

  13. BoboMcAdams says:

    how could The Verve’s Bittersweet Symphony not be on the list? plus where is Aerosmith

  14. Ebss says:

    How do you have a top 100 songs of the 90s and not have Michael Jackson in there ???

  15. ryan says:

    umm hello?—–Tubthumping-Chumbawumba

    its a classic

  16. Mike Guzman says:

    where is PM5K, Sublime, Bad Religion, Bone Thugs N’ Harmony, N.I.N, Pennywise, P.O.D., and alot of other great 90’s bands…

    this list is pretty much bogus half of it is pop, the others are good songs but deserve a different place on the list

  17. Ty says:

    No Blink 182….VH1 should be off the air

  18. Chris says:

    No Smashing Pumpkins, no 90’s.

  19. andy says:

    Only one pearl jam song this list is most def a joke

  20. chris says:

    not a single boyz to men song at all?? makes me not wanna respect the list at all…

  21. jpall says:

    No limp bizkit the nookie man

  22. UserNameNA says:

    These lists are determined by what people vote for. VH-1 just orders them. Blame the people who vote for these songs

  23. Scott says:

    Don’t Speak by No Doubt should’ve been top 10. Plus, should’ve picked a different Green Day song…..and where’s the Ska? Ska was big in the 90s. Rage Against the machine, Bush, Foo Fighters all got snubbed. The biggest crime is NO SUBLIME?? For real??? Just goes to show, that VH1/MTV have no clue what real people listen to, only what kids 10-15 listen to

  24. Stevo says:

    Just curious, how did November Rain and Social D’s Story of My Life not make the list? If ever a song defined the 90’s, it has to be November Rain. I feel cheated.

  25. turbodymoman says:

    Where is November rain??

  26. Patty says:

    Where in the h-e-double hockey sticks is Dishwalla’s Counting Blue Cars????

  27. Secard13 says:

    Where is Possum Kingdom by the Toadies?

  28. Paul says:

    let me start by saying this list is terrible….where the hell is no rain by blind melon….where are NIN and smashing pumpkins or even a punk band…..like 70% of the list is pop/hip-hop b.s… semi-charmed life deffinately should be higher

  29. Alec says:

    Uhhhh, where is the Nine Inch Nails? Smashing Pumpkins? More thought needed to go in this list.

  30. marlo says:

    It is insulting to my intelligence that only one radiohead song made it. They should of had 15 on there. At least ahead of the freaking backstreet boys.

  31. Sean says:

    No aerosmith? Dont want to miss a thing, im not even a big aero fan but that song was amazing and huge!

  32. brad says:

    kinda surprised not one smashing pumpkins song made it one the list – that band was a huge part of the alternative scene of the 90s

  33. jacob says:

    its okay

  34. jacob says:

    why didnt cherry pie by warrant make it

  35. KCW says:

    Haha! The Macarena didn’t make the list either!

  36. bc says:

    This list is bogus! One of the biggest songs and groups of the 90’s didn’t even make it? Boyz 2 Men? Are you kidding me?

  37. Scott says:

    Nevermind, I see that it is on the list. I’m an idiot. Sorrt about that.

  38. Scott says:

    “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” by Sophie B. Hawkins should have made that list.
