Mmm, 7/10. It started out a little slow and plastic, but once the ridiculous yelling kicked it, I enjoyed it.

This has been one of my favorite songs for the nearly 30 years now since its original release, in no small part because I seem to be one of the few people who gets that it's not actually a happy song. (Seriously, check out the comment section. Most everyone falls into this delusion and takes the song at face value, despite it being quite clearly ironic like so much stuff was back in the early '90s.) It's sad in a dorkishly catchy way.

7/10. I spent a lot of my childhood listening to REM, mainly because my uncle was a big fan, and this song in particular got a lot of playtime since it was pretty big in the 90s... not my favourite by them, but definitely a song I like and can listen to whenever it's on.

To be perfectly honest, 6/10. I like the theme of the song a lot, but to me the rhythm chosen just doesn't seem to go along with it very well. Until the last minute and a half or so; that makes me feel it.

Yerp, I'm in a '90s sorta mood today. I'll blame the recent launch of the Super NES Online, but the truth is that most of the music I enjoy is stuff from the early '90s and that I don't pay much attention to new music outside of game tunes anymore. Anyway, I've always thought this song was fun and miss this grungy style. I also miss, as one commenter puts it, "greasy stringy hair, no make up and thrift store clothing", lol.

Honestly, the music video doesn't really help the flow much, just the song on its own sounds so much better, there's also an acoustic version which is pretty great too, lol. 

8/10, I wouldn't even need to see the video, band name, song name to know this is ripped straight from the 90's. Giving this a high score based on the fact that not only do I genuinely enjoy Veruca Salt anyway, but listening to this gave me massive nostalgia back to when my uncle would have "Eight Arms To Hold You" blasting out the car speakers as we'd be driving for a McDonalds or something, he was the cool uncle, and I know that's the wrong album, but still same band and it sent me on a massive nostalgia trip since I've not listened to them in years!

9/10! Back to the metalz, I see. Well this one has all the ingredients of a good metal song: lots of yelling, solid rhythm, an excellent guitar solo-ish thing in the middle, and I can understand about one-third of the words. Ya can't ask for much better than that when it comes to metal.

Now I submit the greatest, most moving love song of all time for your consideration!

Kathleen Hanna and the whole West Coast punk/grunge movement was awesome. 10/10 - I know she feuded with Courtney Love who is one of my favourite band fronts of all time. Here's something live from the 1970s punk movement that influenced Riot Grrrl.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

10/10! Love the X-Ray Spex! It was fun getting back to the fundamentals of the genre for a moment this morning.

For something a bit different (but still '90s), I how about this simple yet I think poignant song about many people across the world being too worried about death to enjoy life?
