  • Nirvana was the shit, I don't know much about the time line except that it went down hill in the 90's too. But I'd agree with those Nirvana songs. And Mariah too, she was the absolute queen of the 90's.

    I don't know the timeline, I wasn't even born in 1992. But I'd say there's a great chance a Mariah or Nirvana song was most popular.

    Lol, I looked it up
    Here are a few
    Jump-Kris Kross
    Baby Got Back-Sir Mix-a-lot
    I can't make you love me-Bonnie Raitt
    I will remember you-Amy Grant
    Real love-Mary J Blige
    Free Your Mind-En Vogue
    Friday I'm in Love-The Cure

What Girls & Guys Said

  • ahha that was a *great* year for music.
    As I mentioned in this thread, that was the year of the best Lollapalooza lineup ever:

    I don't think I can limit it to just five... here are some off the top of mah head.

    I'm not going for "most popular", since you could just google that... these are just associated with special memories for me.

    • Red Hot Chili Peppers -- Under the Bridge
    ... you can read about what this song means to me, if you want to read all the way through my thread here

    • Ministry -- Jesus built my hotrod (... of special significance because I actually built hotrods)

    • L7 -- Pretend that we're dead

    • Stone Temple Pilots -- Creep

    • Soundgarden -- Rusty Cage
    • Soundgarden -- Outshined
    (I owe lots of different people and things for getting me through the worst of my depressive days, but, Chris Cornell's voice is definitely up near the top of that list)

    • Rage Against the Machine -- Killing in the Name...

    • Live -- Pain Lives on the Riverside

    • Pearl Jam -- Once
    I still think this is the best song from the "Ten" album, despite all the other mega hits from that album.


    Incidentally, I went to the same high school as Snoop Dogg and Warren G and a few other heavy hitters of Long Beach hip-top, but most of that didn't crack the surface until '93 or '94. So, not listed here. (:

  • I love all of those songs! Big Nirvana fan.

    According to the Billboard Top 100's of 1992, the top 5 were
    1 Boyz II Men - End Of The Road
    2 Sir Mix-a-Lot - Baby Got Back
    3 Kris Kross - Jump
    4 Vanessa Williams - Save The Best For Last
    5 TLC - Baby-Baby-Baby

    • Yeah I know but I don't never really agreed with it though Mariah Carey and Nirvana songs were more popular than those songs

    • Show All
    • I love Kurt Cobain's personality as much as his music Nirvana has some very underrated songs by the way

    • I completely agree! :)

  • 1. Eric Clapton Tears In Heaven

    2. Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit

    3. Queen Bohemian Rhapsody (originally released in 1975 but in the charts in 1992 due to its use in the movie "Wayne's World")

    4. Bonnie Raitt I Can't Make You Love Me

    5. George Michael and Elton John Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me

  • I liked listening to Nirvana (So #1 and #2). I also listened to a lot of R&B and hip hop back then. I liked TLC "What About Your Friends" #3, #4 En Vogue "Free Your Mind", and some dance music like Snap! "Rhythm is a Dancer" #5.

  • #1 was Iron Maiden - Fear Of The Dark...

    For #s 2 through 5, I'll refer you to #1.

    Good night, good sir.

  • Lol all Nirvana and then Maria Carey.

    You're weird.
    You weren't even born in 1992.

  • Look at all the other stuff that came out in 1992:

    I vote for:
    1. Life is a highway
    2. I'm Too Sexy
    3. Justified and Ancient
    4. Jump Around
    5. I Love Your Smile

  • 1992 I was into techno so you probably never heard of them. ACEN - Trip II The Moon, Jaydee - Plastic Dreams, Onscure FM - Michael Jackson Is in Heaven Now, 2 Unlimited - Twilight Zone, X Calibur - Love American Style, and a few hundred others I'm too lazy to list.

  • At first, I thought this was some list from Billboard and I said "WHAAAAT?".

    But I believe this is your own list. Haha... you do love Nirvana.

    For me, 90's is the decade from where music went downhill. I stopped following the charts and all that Acid House music, 90's hip hop, alternative rock, modern rock, .. nothing tuned to my ear.

    I kept listening to music but only by artists of past decades.

    • Awww ): and Those Nirvana Songs were extremely popular

    • Show All
    • I don't remember since I never followed them as such. I will give it a listen later.

    • Cool tell me if you remember

  • Under the Bridge Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Baby Baby Baby TLC
    Jump Around House of Pain
    Damn I wish I was your lover Sophie B Hawkins
    One U2

  • Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit
    Technotronic Move This
    Queen Bohemian Rhapsody
    Bryan Adams Do I Have To Say The Words?
    Cure Friday I'm In Love

  • Nirvana! too many songs to list :P

    • Only four Nirvana songs in 1992 were very popular in 1992 actually (:

  • I wasn't even a thought yet back in 1992 lol

  • I wasn't alive at that point

  • The Beer Song

  • The 90s were great if you like grunge, alt rock, and R&B. For us AOR melodic rock fans however, the 90s really mark the beginning of the end. Within a year, most bands stopped using synthesizers, saxophones, put less emphasis on guitar tech, no longer feautured beautiful vocal harmonies etc.

    For better or worse, the fact is the 90s changed the course of music forever

  • Anything by little wayne 😂 lmao
