VH1's '100 Greatest Songs Of The 90s' Launches Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' In The No 1 Spot



NEW YORK (Top40 Charts/ VH1 PR) - The fans have spoken and VH1 is celebrating the music of the 90s like it never has before. In an online poll, VH1.com users have voted Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" as the greatest song from the 90s.

It was the decade that brought you Madonna's "Vogue," Alanis Morissette's "You Oughta Know" and Hanson's "MMMBop," and once again VH1 taps its collective memories and revisits it all. VH1's "100 Greatest Songs Of The '90s" premieres Monday-Friday, December 17 - 21 at 10 PM* each night. With more than 600,000 votes cast, the countdown list was determined by an online poll at VH1.com where viewers had the opportunity to pick their favorite songs of the '90s from all genres -- rock, pop, rap or R&B. The complete list of VH1's "100 Greatest Songs Of The '90s" is attached.

VH1's "100 Greatest Songs of the 90s" will let viewers reminisce with the top 100 songs that have had the greatest influence and effect on music and pop culture, leaving a lasting impact. Nirvana's "Smell Like Teen Spirit" takes the honor of being the number one song on the countdown. The 1991 song not only propelled the Seattle grunge group to stardom, but allowed alternative music to hit the mainstream charts. This five-night event of "block-rockin' beats" will not only count down your favorite 90s jams, it will also reveal the story behind each tune and bring you up to date on what the decade's greatest stars are doing today with all new and exclusive interviews.

In the tradition of VH1's hit "100 Greatest" specials, the show features archival clips, classic performances, plus exclusive interviews from Sinead O'Connor, Backstreet Boys, Salt N' Pepa and Vanilla Ice, among many others. But most of all, the 90s were ten years of tight music that was "too legit to quit."
