Best 1990s Music for Weddings
These are the Best 90s Songs for Weddings to get people on the dance floor! Out with the Eighties and into the Nineties. The 90s saw an abundance of different styles of music. Music styles ranged from grunge, techno, rap, bubblegum pop and more. The early 90s we full of carryover of hair band rockers like Guns ‘N’ Roses and Metallica. However, we also saw a new form of rock and roll called grunge rock. Grunge rock, also known as alternative rock was fathered by bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Green Day. Grunge music also propitiated the activity of body slamming in mosh pits. Bubblegum pop was mainstream with artists such as Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera and boy bands Backstreet Boys and N’Sync. Techno music, also known as house music or dance music, was a great dance floor filler. Techno chart toppers of the 90s included C+C Music Factory and Technotronic.
Hip Hop and Rap music were high on the charts with artists such as MC Hammer and Tone-Loc. Gangsta rap was also popular in teen culture with artists as Dr. Dr and Snoop Doggy Dogg. As gangsta rap and grunge fizzled out, a combination of the two formed – ska. Although it did not catch on, some bands were memorable such as Sublime, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Reel Big Fish. By the end of the decade, we saw the lack of grunge and the emergence of arena rock, also known as modern rock, powered by mega-bands Red Hot Chili Peppers and Creed. The 90s were filled with mainstream R&B artists. R&B artists included TLC, Boyz II Men, Whitney Houston, and Usher. Pop-Country also was common with artists like Garth Brooks, Faith Hill and the Dixie Chicks.
In the Nineties, we once again found ourselves in war with what we later called Operation Desert Storm. We also had “war” in our own backyard with the LA Riots after the Rodney King verdict, World Trace Center bombing, Oklahoma City bombing and the Waco, TX cult compound raid. One of the biggest technological releases took place in the early 90s that transformed the world – the Internet. Millions also watched intently and chose sides on the O.J. Simpson murder trial. The Nineties were full of highs and lows. The highs included the rise of Tiger Woods in golf, and the movie Titanic becomes the highest selling ever. The lows included the loss of Princess Diana, the killing spree at Columbine High School, and the fear of the Y2K bug.
