The 100 Greatest Songs Of The '90s was a show that aired on VH1 in December of 2007 that listed the top 100 songs from the 1990s decade. The show mostly featured Alternative rock and Gangsta rap artists who were popular at the time and their respected one-hit wonders or most widely known songs.

As with the other shows of the series, VH1 tries to capture the attitude and lifestyle of whatever they were counting down. In this countdown, artists are introduced from a stack of CDs and the show opens with the camera touring a typical 1990s environment with slanted posters on the walls, analog TV set, and piles of compact discs. The music returning viewers from commercial breaks had a typical pop-punk/alternative style.

It should be noted that the big-four grunge bands (Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Nirvana, and Pearl Jam) were all featured within the top 50. Grunge was highly popular in the early-to-mid 1990s.
