So I was watching VH1’s 100 Best Songs of the 90s the other night, and it was full of depressingly crap tunes.  So here are 5 singles from the 90s that both belong in the top 100 and are underrated enough that they probably didn’t make the list.  (Confession: I couldn’t sit through the whole thing.  They announced that Digital Underground’s “The Humpty Dance” made their list and I had to turn it off.

So anyway, here are five awesome, yet underrated tunes from the 90s:

Pulp, “Common People”

Fatboy Slim, “Rockafeller Skank”

Bad Religion, “21st Century (Digital Boy)”

Johnny Cash, “Delia’s Gone”

Sonic Youth, “Sugar Kane”
