Tubular Tunes on Tuesday Music Link Up **90's Edition**

Two of my amazing real life friends Krystal and Jen have been hosting a music link up on Tuesdays. I have missed the first two weeks because Tuesday is THE WORST day of the week for me to post. I really regretted missing out on last weeks 80's post (I love 80's music!) and decided I could NOT miss this week. Note: If you are reading this via email or RSS, visit the website for the videos!

Here are the Tubular Tunes on Tuesday that are left (including today):

November 15th *** 90s
November 22nd *** 00s
November 29th *** Current
December 6th *** Bonus Week: Soundtracks

**WARNING: There will be some cussing involved in these videos.**

On to the music....

Blink 182- Apple Shampoo (1997)
My all time favorite song from my all time favorite cd by my all time favorite band. This song actually never had a video made, so here is a random Youtube video with the song playing in the background:

Of course, I could do this whole post on Blink 182, but I am limiting myself to one vote per band. : )

Sublime- Badfish (1992)
I have always loved this band. It was hard to pick one song, but I decided to pick an under-appreciated and not overplayed song. RIP Brad Nowell. I am also really excited to see Sublime with Rome next month (Rome Ramirez replaced Brad Nowell and they sound pretty dang good)!

Nirvana- Come As You Are (1991)
Does this song really need commentary? This will still be playing when my future children are senior citizens. RIP Kurt Cobain.

Foo Fighters- Everlong (1997)
Of course the end of Nirvana allowed David Grohl to come to the front and truly shine. The Foo Fighters are to this day one of my favorite live bands.

Oasis- Wonderwall (1995)
This is one of my favorite "guilty pleasure" songs. I have heard it a million times and it never gets old.

Live- Lightening Crashes (1994) 
This is another guilty pleasure song that I blast at full volume and sing until my lungs hurt. Such a beautiful and sad song. Random story: My Mom won tickets to see Live when I was younger and I didn't realize who they were. I told her to give them away. I have regretted it my entire life. Ugg.

The Offspring- The Kids Aren't Alright (1998)

Weezer- Undone (The Sweater Song) (1994)
LOVE Weezer! It was a toss up between this and 'Say It Ain't So".

These last video is for Krystal. Something I have never told you is that despite my hatred of Boy Bands (and your love for them), I actually loved them when I was younger. I even had a NKOTB sleeping bag, sheet set and dolls. Ugg. The shame. : )  My favorite boy band song was:

Backstreet Boys- Everybody (Backstreets Back) (1997)

Some honorable mentions include:

*The Real Mccoy- Another Night
*Ace of Base- The Sign
*Metallica- Enter Sandman
*Nine Inch Nails- Closer (I was actually going to post the video, but it is SO inappropriate that I decided not to).
*Counting Crows- Mr. Jones
*Rage Against the Machine- Killing in the Name
*Faith No More- Epic
*Will Smith- Getting Jiggy With It
*Ja Rule and Jennifer Lopez- Ain't That Funny
*Coolio- Gangster's Paradise
*Montell Jordan- This is How We Do It

See? I could go on forever. I Love music! Thanks for the fun link up and hopefully I will remember next week too. I hope everyone will join us.

Ah, great tunes! I'm so excited that you were able to link up! I found it SO HARD to choose a Weever song! The Sweater Song was tied with Buddy Holly, but I went with Buddy. I'm glad someone went with the Sweater Song!
