My top 50 Alternative 90s songs dedicated to Generation Z.

You all know I looove music so I wanted to share with you 50 of my favorite 90s rock songs. This month I’ve noticed myself picking songs from my childhood just wanting to feel nostalgic. I shared some 90s songs on my insta story and was surprised at how many of my followers didn’t know these bands! Well I might know why, a lot of my followers are my students and they are way younger… But either way it made me want to share some my favorite songs because helloooo these songs are classics! And since the 90s fashion is back in, I want the next generation to hear some really amazing music. 


Empire Records <3

So here are my top favorite songs that are currently on my 90s’s playlist. I continue to keep adding…so if there’s a song that should be on this list please put them in the comments! I will have to do another post on 90s pop & R&B because this playlist would’ve been way too long. I feel very fortunate that I grew up with all types of music and learned to appreciate the different genres. So if you are not into rock, please just give a few songs a try, some of these songs might change your mind. Music evolves over time but it always goes back to its roots. I know everyone has their preference of music, so this list is for all you Alternative rockers out there!

I have a ton of other favorites but decided to cap it at 50 for today. If you follow me on Instagram  @danielle_keaton_ I’ll be posting my Spotify playlist in my stories so you’ll be able to hear the songs right away..for some reason WordPress or Spotify isn’t’ letting me add it on here.
