    Holy crap, 1994 is a horrible year for music according to that site. Definitely not the type of music that I listened to in 94 when I graduated at all. And I think I really hate most of those songs. There might be 2 or 3 that I actually like (Collective Soul, Beck, and probably the Cranberries song although I can’t remember which it is).

    Of course, I was mostly into metal and alternative back then, and alternative was actually alternative to popular music!
