    Most of the songs I know from the 90’s are Raffi.

    Coming from someone who was born in 82, man the 90's were wild for music. You had the grunge movement at the beginning to middle of the decade, metal became mainstream, and then TRL dominated music in the latter half of the decade. TRL went anywhere from Backstreet Boys and NSync to Korn and Limp Bizkit. While it goes somewhat unnoticed, Garth Brooks took country from some twangy genre to the beginnings of a mainstream sound. Although one could argue the merits of that, as today's mainstream country is pretty blah. That is ignoring rap, R&B, and hip hop. Dre, Snoop, and TuPac took rap mainstream and laid the groundwork for what it is today.

    For me the BMG and Columbia Houses of the world made it easy to accumulate a ton of CD's quickly. Kids today won't know the joy of going to Media Play (or whatever big box store there was) and just browsing the music isles. I can remember saving up my tip money from my job and blowing it all on the latest CD's.

    For the most 90's song I am going to have to go back to Smells Like Teen Spirt. It has been described as the anthem for my generation, and I can't disagree with that.

    This is tough. 90s has like 3 eras between those 9-11 years and a few different genres exploded into the mainstream.

    I dont think I can choose one song. Id have to narrow down the parameters for this one.

    We graduated from Raffi to Tom Chapin. Baby Beluga to This Pretty Planet. We took the kids to Playhouse in the Park to see Chapin. It was great.

    My daughter played some Raffi for her son and even though I hadn’t heard him in 25 years, I still knew all the words.

    It's an impossible choice. For instance, Roy mentioned Raffi like the Wiggles didn't even exist.

    Love that Primitive Radio Gods track. Killer alt-rock one hit wonders defined the decade for me. With that in mind, I think these three approach the title of most 90s song.

    LEN - Steal My Sunshine
    New Radicals - You Only Get What You Give
    Chumbawumba - Tupthumping

    MTV/modern rock radio killed some of those early 90s zeitgeist tracks for me. I’d be happy to never hear or see the videos for Teen Spirit or Enter Sandman ever again.

    Speaking of, it’s a bit sad how many of these iconic/zeitgeist-y expensive 90s music videos only exist online as grainy low quality YouTube videos. Even the official band/label accounts seem to be working with the result of very poorly planned digital archiving.

    Re: The Most 90's Song

    It was originally released in 89 but did not chart until late 1990 into 91, so I will nominate Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game"

    The guys we've had for the most part have been serviceable at this level.

    I’m gonna backup M2 here. For me, the 90’s music scene was chick rock. An explosion of great female artists creating hits that are still holding up today. And they were angry, which showed up in their music. I loved it. Some of my favorites:

    Alanis Morrisette
    Avril Lavigne
    Fiona Apple
    Garbage
    No Doubt
    Liz Phair
    Shania Twain
    Sarah McLachlan
    L7
    Sheryl Crow
    Hole
    Cranberries
    Veruka Salt

    Pretty much a one hit wonder, but this song represents the 90’s scene for me

    Kind of miss the one hit wonder. The 90s might have been the last great era for those.

    Black Hole Sun — Soundgarden

    The mood, the sound, the production, the aesthetics. It’s the quintessential 90’s song.
    And when finally they sense that some position cannot be sustained, they do not re-examine their ideas. Instead, they simply change the subject. Jamie Galbraith

    But are you nominating the song or Helena Christensen?

    Fun fact: Chris Isaak supposedly wrote "Wicked Game" about Margaret Cho.
