What songs do you think best define the 1990s?

This is not necessarily your personal favorite song of the 90s.

This is not necessarily your personal most nostalgic song of the 90s

This is not necessarily what you think the best song of the 90s is

This is what song you think best defines the 1990s?

When you think of the decade as a whole:

The fashions, the trends, the slang, the movies, the TV, the culture, the history

What song best represents it?

I started high school in 1990, graduated college in 98, these were my formative salad days.

But these are the ones that immediately sprang to mind:

For better or worse, I will always associate the summer of 1997 with the below song and Final Fantasy VII.
