Shaun Ryder and Bez rode off together into the sunset following the implosion of the Mondays. A potentially great UK Number One that was robbed of the top spot by cruel coincidence? Hollywood Burn! And who could resist that snare roll…. And lo did Dr Dre introduce the world to G-Funk, a new strain of West Coast rap with its slow, deep grooves and fat bass. Always the quiet ones, eh….

99 ‘Reverend Black Grape’
1. “Semi-Charmed Life” by Third Eye Blind (1997)
This decade is, by far, one of the most diverse there's ever been, musicwise. It started off with rising trends in grunge and hip-hop before moving into the new millennium with full-on bubblegum pop. There really was something for everyone this era—whether you wanted to dance, sulk, or sulk while you danced. Nineties music is an eternal mood. Get into it. Please note: This list is randomly ranked.
The 50 best ’90s songs
I'll wait. This decade gave us a plethora of perfect pop songs, and their appeal remains immortal. Relive the glory years with the 58 best pop songs of the decade. We have Ricky Martin to thank for giving us this instant mood lifter, as well as a timeless Instagram caption for every situation. I'm not sure what we did to deserve two of the greatest vocalists together on one track, but it's one of—if not THE—best duets music ever gave us, and that's the hill I'm willing to die on. Try not to cry when the choir joins in. You'd be hard pressed to find a single soul who doesn't know the lyrics to the Friends theme.
