For the 30th 90s Music Fun I decided to pull out all the stops and play the biggest and most mega hits from the 90s. Some might say these songs were overplayed. And they'd probably be right. \:\)

As a bonus I've also included some parodies of some of the songs.

Nirvana
Smells Like Teen Spirit

U2

One

Oasis
Wonderwall

Metallica
Enter Sandman

Nine Inch Nails (Warning lots of cursing)
Closer

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Under the Bridge

R.E.M.

Man on the Moon

Eric Clapton
Tears in Heaven

Bonus Parodies

Weird Al
Smells Like Nirvana

Ben Stiller
Lucky Clovers

Nine Inch Nails (Warning the same cursing as before)
Closer (Super Mario Mix)

I remember being blown away the first time I saw this video! Finally, MTV was playing songs that rocked again! The begining of a trend that defined a generation. Awesome!




Love this song. At the time I was buying up everything U2. I loved the dance club version of Night And Day on this single. This was U2 at their peak IMO. Such deep lyrics on everything from Achtung, Baby.





This is a true classic of the 90's. Just a fantastic song.





I was never that big into Metallica, but this is a great song. A driving guitar riff and powerful, twisted vocals for what's basically a lullabye.

This video was a sensation when it came out. The times back then were such that a new great thing was coming out almost weekly. It was really a great decade for music.




This was a big hit at the time. I really liked it then, but it's kind of worn on me over the years.




I think I like this song more now than I did then. Is there another song besides Pencil Neck Geek that references Fred Blassie? For me, REM had the ability to be great or...not so great. This one is on the great side.




Such a sad song. It's amazing Clapton could go on afterwards.

I remember this video. It's a good parody by Al.
"Boy this oughta bug your parents!" "Burp!" lol
Dick Van Patten? That's random.




I never saw this before. Funny!




That's an interesting take. It works well.
"It's me, Mario!" lol

I don't remember being all that into music until the summer of 1995. Cobain was already dead, but already a legend and Nirvana was instantly my favorite band.

I love it too.

While I was in High School I got into "Master of Puppets" but that was really the only album of theirs I got into.

I know what you mean. For a couple of years MTV always had a whole bunch of awesome new videos every week.

This is one of those songs I got really sick of.

I hadn't ever heard this song until the Man on the Moon movie came out. Weird huh?

Yeah, I don't know if I could have gone on. I hope I don't have to find out!!!

The Ben Stiller Show is full of great sketches like this. It's one of my favorite sketch shows.

    One day you hear this for the first time and it just blows everything else you've ever heard out of the water. At least that was my experience. I'm sure it happens to kids to this day who are just discovering it. There's some bands I like more, even other musicians from Seattle I prefer but the 90s is just synonymous with Nirvana and the unforgettable music they created in their brief time together. It's funny but I think I first saw the Weird Al video before the original. Crazy huh?

    U2

    One

    A timeless favorite song of mine. One of their best and a great video as well. IMO U2 never came close to topping this song with anything afterward. I listened to an interview where Bono said something once about how couples use this as their wedding song and how that's actually a misinterpretation of the meaning behind the song.

    Oasis
    Wonderwall

    I could never get into this song much.

    Metallica
    Enter Sandman

    The song that got me listening to Metallica. Still love it to this day even if I prefer their other albums.

    Nine Inch Nails (Warning lots of cursing)
    Closer

    Red Hot Chili Peppers

    Under the Bridge


    Such a great video.

    R.E.M.

    Man on the Moon


As a big R.E.M. and Andy Kaufman I've always dug this tune.




If there's one song from the 90s I can say was everywhere, it's actually not Smells Like Teen Spirit- it's this one. Sad stuff but great song.

Maybe my favorite parody of his? That donut the janitor pulls out of the bucket is the best along with the guy on fire.

Absolutely agree 100%. I sure hope the kids of today are discovering Nirvana, but who knows what they're doing. I was blown away by the entire Nevermind album.

Ha well I can't say I know a lot of the music teens listen to today is myself but I think from what I've seen if there's one band from the 90s that teens still listen to its Nirvana as well as Radiohead.

I'd love someone to do a poll and see what bands Generation Z, or whatever we are up to, are listening to.

Interesting mix. Nevermind is probably the only grunge album i ever liked and of course SLTS was my intro to them. One is another great U2 song. Oasis didnt move me. Now Enter Sandman and Metallica blew my doors off! I pretty much like everything they did until somewhere post year 2000. N.I.N. was blah to me but to be fair I never listened to them much. Under the Bridge is a great song made even better if you know the story behind it. I like T.R.H.C.P. in general especially when they rock. Man on the Moon is not a favorite but R.E.M. sure is like U2 I love the message and sound of their material. Tears In Heaven is such a sad song because of the story behind it and while it is a sentimental favorite it's not Clapton gold. The Weird Al parody is one of his best. Not familiar with the last two.
