Would Beavis and Butthead love Pitchfork's top songs of the 1990s?

Pitchfork's countdown of the Top 200 Tracks of the 1990s came to an end today, and their picks for the best songs of that decade are now up for debate (and there will be debate). 

Some of you are probably already mad at Pitchfork's choices, or mad that Pitchfork did this at all, or mad that you're reading about this on a site that's not Pitchfork. Well, you can scoff and roll your eyeballs right out of their sockets, but then you'd just be what people like to call "no fun." Besides, people of a certain age have had to endure years and years of older pop culture nerds obsessing over their beloved 1980s (Freaks and Geeks, Chuck Klosterman, Rob Sheffield), and all they did was complain about how they had to endure years and years of Baby Boomer culture. So, it's only fair that someone else gets to have some say.

So, to start off your long weekend, sit back and reminisce over five awesome songs that some consider to be the best of the '90s:


5. Wu-Tang Clan, "Protect Ya Neck" 


4. Radiohead, "Paranoid Android"


3. Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dog, "Nuthin' But a 'G' Thang"


2. Pulp, "Common People"


1. Pavement, "Gold Soundz"
