90s Playlist

Being a big fan of the 1990s, I am also in love with rock music of the 90s. I love alternative, rock, grunge, etc. 90s rock music is just something that transports me back to that wonderful time, and it was an incredible time for making music. I would love to go back in time to a 90s rock concert. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Rage, Soundgarden. I would be in heaven.

As I am a big fan, I want to show you a long playlist of great 90s rock tunes, be them soft to hard rock, be them hits to non-hits. For those of you who love the 90s, you probably know these already, but you might not recognize the band or title. Check them out. Once you get to the chorus or hear the beginning, you'll know it. You'll recognize it.

I can agree with most of the songs that you've listed- the others I've never heard, but I'd probably agree on them anyway.

The one song that makes me nostalgic is "Closing Time" by Semisonic. There was a period in time (right around 6th or 7th grade) when I remember listening to the radio's top hits at 8 while writing in my journal, and it seemed for a while that, without fail, this song was always on. Whenever I hear it now, the song makes me incredibly nostalgic.

Thanks for reminding me :o)
