A look back at the 15 best Songs of the Nineties

From Britney Spears and Ace of Base to Beck and Nirvana, the era was epic for music

The music boom of the 1990s was a gold rush for singles – everywhere you turned on the radio, you could hear a high-speed collision of different beats.

From grunge to gangsta rap, dancehall to disco, riot-grrrl punk to TRL midriff mall-pop, every style of music was thriving, with a thousand different electronica schools and nearly as many Wu-Tang solo records.

Whatever was ringing your bells, the Nineties had more of it than any fan could handle.

There’s no way one list could encompass such a prolific decade – hell, you could run through two or three hundred great tunes from the summer of 1994 alone.

However, these 15 pivotal songs capture glorious moments from throughout the Nineties music explosion – – hits, obscurities, cult classics, dance-floor jams, guitar ragers, karaoke standards.
