The 90's had some interesting, to say the least, music in its midst.

I'm curious to know what your favorite song(s) are from the 90's and why.



My personal favorite is a lesser known song by the band Filter.

Welcome to the Fold takes the listener on a journey with heavy riffs and homorhythmic bass and guitar.

The lyrical style is unique in that the composition almost seems like a conversation between the archetypical lucifer (first two verses) and responses by a christ-like figure (chorus).

Enjoy!





Welcome To The Fold
Filter
This is the second track and first single off of Filter’s 1999 release “Title Of Record”

WELCOME TO THE FOLD LYRICS
[Verse 1: Richard Patrick]
You take my money
You think you're great
You think it's funny
And I hate your face, eh
You got your Jesus
And I got my space
You Got your reasons
And I got my case

[Chorus:]
Just gotta sit yourself down
To contemplate
You get yourself a nice cold beer
And drink yourself away
You're celebrating nothing
And you feel a-okay
You're celebrating nothing
And you feel a-okay

[Verse 2:]
You think you're precious
And I think you're #
And I'd kill your father
To destroy his seed
Oh, nothing will ever
Destroy your greed

[Chorus 2:]
You just gotta sit yourself down
To contemplate
Get yourself a nice cold beer
And drink yourself away
You're celebrating nothing
And you feel a-okay
You're celebrating nothing
And you feel a-okay

[Bridge:]
Now when you break yourself down
Go to this place
You give yourself the reason
To get off your case
And when you break it down, yeah
See through this #
You give yourself the reason
To live though this

[Bridge 2:]
Mama give me my medicine
Mama give me my medicine
Mama give me my medicine
The one that makes me feel taller
Mama give me my medicine
Mama give me my medicine
One that makes me feel so tall
Tall
Like a tall tree
Mama give me my medicine
That makes me feel like a tall tree
Mama give me my medicine
That makes me feel like a tall tree
Mama give me my medicine
That makes me feel like a tall tree, yeah

Yeah 10x

You're celebrating nothing
And you feel a-okay
You're celebrating nothing
And you feel a-okay

[Outro:]
Do do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do (9x)

Do do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do do do

Hahahahahahaha! Thank you for posting that song. I was going to say No Rain by Blind Melon, but you win.

ETA: Smashing Pumpkins "Tonight, Tonight" might be second place. I'm enjoying this thread a little too much.

Yeah, I think this works for the '90s.



I forget that S&M was also '99, so it technically works too. Call of Ktulu is one of my favorites from that album.

This is officially the best post you've ever written.


You just beat that LEN song for first place. (Yes, I'm the self appointed judge of best 90s song.) I mean r the quintessential Everclear song. Angst. Hope. That was the Clinton years.

I don't do favorite songs. It's hard enough nailing down favorite bands. Here's a few songs from the 90's that I can remember hearing at the time and thinking, "holy f# what was that?" So here's a few of the first songs I heard from some of my favorites in the 90's off the top of my head. I'm sure I'll be saying, "omg, why didn't I include x?" in a few minutes.



(released Oct 1989 but took a minute to hit the local college station)





Biggie, Read to Die
Black Crowes, Remedy
Cypress Hill, Cock the Hammer
Faith No More, Epic
God Lives Underwater, All Wrong
Mobb Deep, Quiet Storm
Pantera, This Love
Portishead, Sour Times
Radiohead, Creep
Smashing Pumpkins, Cherub Rock
Sonic Youth, 100%
Sublime, 40 oz to Freedom
Tool, Sober
Wu-Tang Clan, C.R.E.A.M

EDIT:

yeah, I had to add a few more above. A couple from 88-89 that I don't think I'd heard until I hit high school in the early 90s:

Jane's Addiction, Jane Says
Pixies, Where is My Mind?

I like some of the other Rage songs better, but Head Like a Hole is awfully good.

Under the Bridge is also good. I had the radio on one Friday in my class when I was teaching and one of my students was like, "I love this song! But I can never find it. Why can't I find it?" The look on his face when I explained it was new and a huge hit when I was in high school was priceless! It got better when I agreed with him that it was a really good song.

Freedom isn't actually in my top 5 RATM songs either actually but it was the first Rage song I'd heard. When I saw the video the first time, I was a little stunned. I don't think I had an appropriate frame of reference for what I was hearing. It wasn't rock, wasn't metal, wasn't rap it was something else. Anyway, been a fan ever since.

Actually got a chance to see them back in 2007 (Rock the Bells, Randall's Island NY) I think it was. My favorite set of all time. They came on right at dusk and the crowd was electrified. I've been to dozens of concerts but I don't think I've seen than many people that hyped before.

I hate to be that middle-aged guy talking about the "good ol days when the music was better" — but the music was better. The 90's was a great time to be a teenager. We grew up on 80's movies and had a real explosion in music in the 90's.

Yep.

Movies were better, no doubt. I think they'll get better when people start to really worry about telling good stories again. I think we've lost that focus currently.

Music is just into different things, and it's not to my taste much. There are still some good things going on here and there though.

I never did get into Nirvana though.

Just makes me realize what crap music is today! I did not appreciate 90's (and 80's) music like I should have!
