The United Kingdom’s infamous music magazine, NME (New Music Express), is celebrating its 60th anniversary and part of the revelry includes features on some of the top musicians of each decade.

Recently, the publication released their 100 Best Tracks Of The Nineties list. Cheeky erotic Britpoppers, Pulp, made it to the top of the pile with “Common People.”

While most of the top twenty artists seem pretty comprehensive to the British ’90s music scene, the list lacks the effervescent pop-punk of the Americas and just about any Oasis song or Foo Fighters’ “Everlong” could have replaced McAlmont and Butler’s “Yes” or Ash’s “Girl From Mars.”

And “Stay Together” as the most-highly rated Suede song? We suppose they weren’t reading the distraught diaries of teenage girl Britpop lovers from the ’90s to make that choice. Lyrics from “So Young” or “The Drowners” are probably etched across many a composition book.

1. Pulp – ‘”Common People”

2. Nirvana – “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

3. Suede – “Stay Together”

4. Radiohead – “Paranoid Android”

5. Manic Street Preachers – “Motorcycle Emptiness”

6. Oasis – “Supersonic”

7. Beastie Boys – “Sabotage”

8. Daft Punk – “Da Funk”

9. McAlmont & Butler – “Yes”

10. Rage Against The Machine – “Killing In The Name”

11. The Verve-“Bittersweet Symphony”

12. Madonna-“Vogue”

13. Primal Scream-“Loaded”

14. Suede-“Animal Nitrate”

15. Radiohead-“Street Spirit (Fade Out)”

16. Eminem-“My Name Is”

17. Weezer-“Buddy Holly”

18. Blur-“Song 2”

19. Ash-“Girl From Mars”

20. Green Day-“Basket Case”

Check out the rest of the list here.
