I really enjoyed watching the top songs of the '90s deal. I have no complaints about the top songs. As much as I feel Nirvana is overrated as a whole, I think that is the only song to pick for song of the decade. It changed the landscape when it came out. (Yes, Pearl Jam was formed prior to Nirvana, but it was Nirvana that blasted open the door.)

I wish they played more videos and less celebreality shit, but I will fully admit I will be watching the next Rock of Love show, and that Celebrity Rehab show, because I love Dr. Drew.

At last U2's One gets it's due recognition, after being bashed endlessly in EYKIW.... a U2 forum. Glad to see the REM and PJ picks in the Top 10. Nirvana definitely deserves #1 for the reason Cori stated. I wish BSB and Britney weren't there in the top 10 but they're telling it like it is I guess. That crap was quite popular in the 90s.

Let me tell you, that Backstreet Boys song is sheer pop perfection. I will defend it to the death, and it deserves its spot at number 3 on the list.



In other news, I wish I got VH1 Classic.

Radiohead's been shunning the mainstream since OkC. (Other than Karma Police, I don't remember seeing any other videos on MTV) So I'm not surprised they didn't do well on a Vh1 list.

Yes, one is a beautifully crafted piece of pop bliss, and the other is an annoyance with a trumpet solo by one of the best bands ever.

I'll take the pop bliss, thanks.

You may hate the Backstreet Boys and all they represent, but a great little song is a great little song.

Horrible, horrible channel.

VH1 Classics, though, is decent.

Out of those, I only remember seeing FPT, HnD and Karma on MTV.

But yeah FPT should've made it for sure!

Yes. Yes, you did.

But I have to firmly disagree with you. It's not nearly as perfect as I Want It That Way.
