11 Songs From The 90s That Really Butter My Muffin

Bringing that grunge life back.

I know I know, 90s music is definitely not what's close to "popular" music anymore, but you should listen to it anyways! I've been on a binge lately of nostalgic music and have fallen back in love with all this music I somehow forgot about. Grunge/rock music is such a good vibe for any time and any mood and reminds a lot of us of our wild middle school years. I can honestly say I've been in such a vibrant mood lately because of these flashback tunes. So I decided I wanted to share my top picks so that you can go on a nostalgic binge, too.

1. "Don't Speak" by No Doubt

I "know just what you're saying" — that it's a bomb song and you can't believe you forgot about it.

2. "Basket Case" by Green Day

Remember guyliner? Green Day wore it well.

3. "Lithium" by Nirvana

This song is underrated in my humble opinion. I know "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is the crowd favorite, but you might recognize this one, too (and love it).

4. "Otherside" by Red Hot Chili Peppers

It'll make you wanna be back in the old days AND wanna learn how to play the guitar.

5. "Heart-Shaped Box" by Nirvana

Hey! Wait! You gotta listen to this again for sure. Hella grunge.

6. "Semi-Charmed Life" by Third Eye Blind

How everyone (including me) forgot about this band for a while, I don't know. It's truly timeless.

7. "Under The Bridge" by Red Hot Chili Peppers

Yes, more Red Hot Chili Peppers — this is the one I've been playing on repeat and singing lyrics from day and night. Love you, RHCP.

8. "What's My Age" Again? by Blink-182

Strap on your glove and nurse outfit (referencing the album cover, for those who forgot about that).

9. "Buddy Holly" by Weezer

PSA: Weezer is one of the most underrated bands of all time, and you gotta listen to their newer music, too.

10. "Losing My Religion" by R.E.M.

This song is trying to keep up with you and doesn't know if it can do it...

11. "Santeria" by Sublime

He ain't got no crystal ball, but if he did it would show you bingeing 90s music tonight.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
