Radio KBwD is on the air

Before we get to the tune of the week, we were inspired by Rolling Stone's 10 worst songs of the 80s as voted on by their readers and decided to conduct our own survey for the worst songs of the 90s. We canvassed the Sunday afternoon football gang at Hoffer's for their input and though not scientific by any means, we relied on the passion of disgust and "Oh god, that song was absolutely putrid!" for our rankings.

Here goes the 9 worst songs of the 90s:

9. Collective Soul - "Shine"

8. Limp Bizkit - "Nookie"

7. Alanis Morrisette - "Ironic"

6. Hanson - "Mmm-Bop"

5. Four Non-Blondes - "What's Goin' On"

4. Meat Loaf - "I'll Do Anything for Love"

3. Milli-Vanilli - "Blame it on the Rain"

2. Vanilla Ice - "Ice Ice Baby"

1. Ace of Base - "The Sign"

Nos. 1-3 had 100% consensus and so bad was "The Sign" that it was agreed upon that you could stop at that one and you would still have a comprehensive list.

OK, no more badness...

Ladies and Gentlemen enjoy one of our favorite songs of the 90s and dig the Zeppelin-esque groove of Lenny Kravitz performing "Rock and Roll is Dead".

Ok, I'll disagree with numbers 1, 5, and 7.

Dean, I really liked Collective Soul, including Shine. Gel and December were better efforts though.

I HATED 99% of what came out of the 90's...but don't be hatin' on my Meat Loaf. That's drive to Vegas at 1am music there.

An accurate list, but no spice girls?

Dean said...

Harrison, you have no idea how much this disappoints me.

drozz, good point because I should've mentioned the ground rules going in: boy/girl bands were automatically excluded as they are, by definition, dreck, anyway, so why clutter up the list with the obvious?

Novelty acts, also, were excluded because do we really need to rehash why "Macarena" was tired and over-done the moment it started getting played at the MLB stadium in your area?
