About This Quiz

The '90s were known for a steady diet of grunge and flannel, with Seattle serving as the home of the alternative scene in rock music. There was plenty of angst going on, along with rebellious lyrics that matched up with that whole Kurt Cobain vibe. 

The bright, artificial, technicolor feel of the '80s was being replaced by a much more earthy and grounded energy. In addition to the alternative rock scene, British bands were also making a splash, bringing a combination of punk, rock, electronic, and even classical music influences to the table. With these factors in mind, let's take a look at the '90s melody that's sure to be in your head and heart for a long time to come.

Perhaps you have a pretty dark outlook on life and an extremely low opinion of humanity in general. If you'd actually welcome news of the apocalypse, seeing it as a chance to wipe the slate clean, "Black Hole Sun" by Soundgarden seems like the perfect anthem for the vibe you've got going on.

On the other hand, maybe you're a lot more optimistic. If you have your fingers crossed that the relationship of your dreams might just be emerging on the horizon, perhaps this might just be the day that they throw it back to you. It also seems like "Wonderwall" by Oasis might be a good fit.

Crank it up and let's get this party started right. Word.
