The only way my friends will let me play my iPod at a party is if they’re feeling whimsical or if they are, in actual fact, asleep. With good reason too, I’ll cautiously admit. It contains abominations of music on there not seen since a tape recorder playing a Billy Ray Cyrus mix tape was eaten by a lawnmower.
So you have to understand when I say I’m talking about the ‘worst’ songs of the 1990s the term ‘best’ is also interchangeable. Like hot chips and party clowns, the music is so bad it’s good.
Rolling Stone Magazine asked its readers for their suggestions to come up with a ‘top 10’ (or bottom 10, depending on how you look at it) and we thought we’d augment that with some of our own suggestions. So it’s kind of like an horrific cyborg of terrible, kitsch, fabulous music from the decade that taste forgot.
