28: Worst Songs of the 1990s

Girl Power.

When it comes to music a lot of folks will probably say woman musicians have had a hard time getting the props they deserve for creating GOOD music, and have to work harder than most bands with male musicians do.  That may be true…but there is a very good reason behind it.  The reason is...

Diiiiiiiig?

I could go on forever on the worst songs of the 90s…and sadly, probably 1/4 of them I probably actually liked for a brief period of time, or tricked myself into thinking I liked.…and I could most likely be caught singing to several of them in my car.   It is only after maturity sets...
Marky Mark And The Funky Bunch - Good Vibrations (1991)

Marky Mark And The Funky Bunch – Good Vibrations (1991)

Here’s a crime against pop culture that shouldn’t go unmentioned… This one pretty much speaks for itself. I challenge you to watch it all the way through. From a certain perspective, Marky Mark is something of an inspirational role model. After doing hard time for beating a man unconscious and leaving another blind in one...
Snow – Informer (1992)

Snow – Informer (1992)

I recently remembered another of what I consider one the worst songs of the 90’s.  Billed as a “reggae” song, this is more like terrible rap crossed with some horrible version of reggae that leaves you with something I’d rather call, “rapgae”. I remember this song being popular, but I didn’t realize it got as...
Ween - "Push th' Little Daisies" (1992)

Ween – “Push th’ Little Daisies” (1992)

The first time I heard this (I think it was either on KWOD, or possibly in some SF music store), I thought it was the most irritating thing I’d ever heard. It sounded like a cross between Prince, Elmo and Richard Simmons, three minutes of nails-on-chalkboard, please-make-it-stop-now pain. If you’re not familiar with this song,...
4 Non Blondes - “What’s Up” (1993)

4 Non Blondes – “What’s Up” (1993)

No introduction is needed for this one. It’s still played regularly as a token 90s song on many radio stations, which is most unfortunate. I can’t say I’ve ever met anyone who didn’t hate this song. It just needs to go away. Little known fact: lead singer Linda Perry now lives with actress and fellow...
Seal - "Kiss From a Rose" (1995)

Seal – “Kiss From a Rose” (1995)

Here is yet another song that I didn’t hate at first, but learned to hate because of the constant rotation this song got on the radio. “Kiss From a Rose” might be the most overplayed song I can remember, that also happen to come from a pretty crappy movie.  (Batman Forever) During the summer of...
Mudhoney - “Suck You Dry” (1992)

Mudhoney – “Suck You Dry” (1992)

Like most of us, my views on 1990s music are highly opinionated. To me, grunge was an annoyance that had to be endured for several years while a bunch of mediocre bands tried to be the next Nirvana or Pearl Jam. I was never a big Nirvana fan due to my prevailing musical tastes at...
Chumbawamba - "Tubthumping" (1997)

Chumbawamba – “Tubthumping” (1997)

When I saw Eduardo’s new topic about bad 90’s songs, this was the first song that came to mind.  Granted, I can’t say I ever really hated this song, it to me was just one of those really annoying “summer songs” that is played over… and over… and over… and over… and over… again. Upon...

TOPIC: Worst Songs of the 1990s

We haven’t had a fresh topic in some time, and this one should be fun. Musically, the 1990s were a time of great transition. We saw the birth of several new genres, the death of a few others, and the terms “alternative” and “mainstream” became synonymous as popular styles were fused together in new experimental...
