    VH1 have compiled their 100 greatest songs of the past 25 years with the top 10 as follows:

    01) Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
    02) Michael Jackson - Billie Jean
    03) Guns N’ Roses - Sweet Child O’ Mine
    04) Eminem - Lose Yourself
    05) U2 - One
    06) Run-D.M.C. - Walk This Way
    07) Prince & The Revolution - When Doves Cry
    08) Whitney Houston - I Will Always Love You
    09) The Police - Every Breath You Take
    10) Madonna - Like A Virgin

    Of course with anything like this there is always a lot of controversy but I would agree with the number 1 spot as it was this song and then the subsequent album "Nevermind" that changed music for the 90's.

    Apparently though Hanson's MMMBop was good enough to get in at 98, what muppet came up with this decision, it is a bloody awful song that would not get in my top 1000 let alone 100. :suicide:

    You can see the full top 100 here

    IMO thats a pretty decent top ten, and was obviously compiled by listeners voting although, would have thought when doves cry would have been a bit lower

    Problem is, there are so many better song than smells by teen spirit, hell, there are plenty of better ones by Nirvana. Are you only allowed to include singles in these lists?

    Totally agree with you 100% there are better songs but I think the VH1 poll is not only about the greatest songs of the past 25 years but also the most inspirational and on this front Smells Like Teen Spirit should be number 1. I can not remember any other song in recent memory that took the music world by storm like Spirit did. Whatever anybody says it did change music for the 90’s, even bands like Metallica who were absolutely massive at the time admitted that Nirvana made them re-think their music. I guess this is one of the reasons why we got the fairly dire Load and ReLoad albums after the black album.
