The Ultimate 90’s Road Trip Playlist


1. Wannabe – Spice Girls

2. Say My Name – Destiny’s Child

3. No Scrubs – TLC

4. Livin’ La Vida Loca – Ricky Martin

5. …Baby One More Time – Britney Spears

The OG pop princess’s debut hit was our 90’s anthem. NVM the fact she was only 16 dressed in what certainly isn’t a school-code uniform. This is the song that introduced Britney Spears to the world, and we shamelessly still blast it today. After all, royalty never goes out of style.


6. All Star- Smash Mouth

The song that simultaneously made and ruined Smash Mouth’s career. They will now forever be credited with creating the Shrek anthem.

7. C’est La Vie – B*Witched

8. The Sign – Ace of Base

9. Waterfalls – TLC

10. Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It – Will Smith

11. U Can’t Touch This – MC Hammer

STOP! Hammer time. MC Hammer gave us not only an iconic dance you probably shouldn’t try to pull off at your next family reunion, but he also introduced the world to Hammer pants.

12. Thong Song – Sisqo

Our parents always told us to stop singing this but how could we with that beat?

13. Jump – Kriss Kross

14. Ice Ice Baby – Vanilla Ice

15. Fly – Sugar Ray

16. All I Wanna Do – Sheryl Crow

17. Kiss Me – Sixpence None The Richer

Every 90’s 16-year-old’s anthem to her oblivious crush. Sixpence None the Richer wound up going indie and released an album, Lost in Transition, in 2012.

18. She’s So High – Tal Bachman

19. I Will Buy You a New Life – Everclear

20. I’ll Be There For You – The Remembrandts

21. Semi-Charmed Life – Third Eye Blind

22. If It Makes You Happy – Sheryl Crow

23. Fade Into You – Mazzy Star

24. Smells Like Teen Spirit – Nirvana

Nirvana wasn’t around for long, but the impression they left on rock music is eternal. The 90’s grunge scene is intrinsically linked to the group, and frontman Kurt Cobain will forever be remembered as an nonconformist icon.

25. Song 2 – Blur

26. Sex and Candy – Marcy Playground

27. Iris – The Goo Goo Dolls

28. Who Let the Dogs Out – Baha Men

Shh. We’re all just going to pretend this song is about puppies like we thought when we were kids.

29. Boombastic – Shaggy

30. I’m Too Sexy – Right Said Fred

31. This Is How We Do It – Montell Jordan

32. No Diggity – Blackstreet

33. Vogue – Madonna

Madonna has made waves and shaped the pop music industry since the 80s, and it’s impossible to think of the 90’s without wanting to break out into the iconic dance that had all of us feeling like true stars.

34. Grove is in the Heart – Deee-Lite

35. (You Drive Me) Crazy – Britney Spears

36. Man! I Feel Like a Woman! – Shania Twain

37. Good Vibrations – Marky Mark And The Funky Bunch

38. Miami – Will Smith

39. Gonna Make You Sweat – C & C Music Factory

40. Genie in a Bottle – Christina Aguilera 

There has always been a debate about which pop princess truly deserved the crown in the late 90s. Aguilera and Spears were pitted against each other when Britney debuted with “Hit Me Baby One More Time” in 1998 and Christina flew to the top of charts in the summer of 1999 with “Genie in a Bottle”.

We say it’s time to let bygones be bygones and embrace both these singing sensations. Besides, why should we have to choose when we can enjoy both classics?

41. I Want it That Way – The Backstreet Boys

42. I Want It That Way – Backstreet Boys

43. Tearin’ Up My Heart – *NSYNC

44. Whatta Man (feat. En Vogue) – Salt-N-Pepa

The original Jonas Brothers, Hanson was every teenage girl’s crush in the 90’s and left us with what is undeniably still a bop.

55. All That She Wants – Ace of Base

57. You Get What You Give – New Radicals

58. Smooth – Santana

59. Are You Gonna Go My Way – Lenny Kravitz

63. Intergalactic – Beastie Boys

64. Blue (Da Ba Dee) – Eiffel 65

65. What Is Love – Haddaway

68. Believe – Cher

“Believe” was the lead single off Cher’s 22nd (yes, 22nd) album in 1998. The track showcased auto-tune at its finest before T-Pain and Lil’ Wayne made it cool and then uncool again in the early 2007s.

69. Around the World – Daft Punk
