Sunny Day for Seven
It’d say Seven, without a doubt. As a younger teen, it was one of those songs I heard by chance that made me second guess my Green Day loving lifestyle and look into less radio-friendly music. My hat off to you Sub-Pop. I’ve had your logo sticker on my last two cars and it’s how people know they’re driving behind me.

Scud Mountain Boys- In A Ditch
The band, and the song, both speak for themselves.

Meat Aint Murder
All that grungy stuff helped pull me from my hair-metal teen years, but Gauze made the whole world seem bigger.

Damien Jurado, "Ohio." That
Damien Jurado, “Ohio.” That song came on the other day while the kids I was watching were coloring and it just highlighted the song’s beauty.

AFGHAN WHIGS - SISTER BROTHER
One of the best 7 inchers ever. Killer sleeve too…
by gregory @ September 3, 2010, 8:03 PM

Severe lack of Pond mentions right now. But Andy wins (thus far) for the godheadSilo inclusion.

Red Red Meat - Gauze
Hard to pick the absolute best, but I’ve listened to this song at least two dozen times in the last month.
Thanks for the list! I’ve been in a 90s listening mood recently.

Clip art- really?!
So offensive to this designer.
My girl, my girl, don’t lie to me, tell me where did you sleep last night. In the pines, where the sun never shines, I shivered all night through.

Screaming Trees - Time Speaks Her Golden Tongue
Just one of those songs that takes me right back to when I first heard it. I don’t think they did anything quite like this song before or since
by Foz @ September 4, 2010, 2:01 AM
LOVE BATTERY - BETWEEN THE EYES
I thought for sure I would be voting for a Sebadoh or Eric Matthews (not on the list???) song, but after hearing this Love Battery song, I remembered how much it seriously rocked the 90s.
by elvisxmas @ September 4, 2010, 4:22 AM
Mudhoney - Good Enough
This was the band that got me into Sub Pop.
by The Hugmeister @ September 4, 2010, 5:21 AM

Picked the album up
Picked the album up without knowing anything about it, and fell in love with “Seven” quickly and made me rethink the “rock” music I listened to. Definitely one of the best songs of the 90’s!
by CiaranMcW @ September 4, 2010, 11:16 AM
Damien Jurado - Ohio
This song makes me feel incredibly happy every time I listen to it.

Mark Lanegan - Where did you sleep last night
Culturally, symbolically, i think this song embraces a lot of what we consider representative of the 90’s. plus, it’s a great performance!
by monkeykey @ September 6, 2010, 7:37 PM
massive cocaine seizure - 6fs
played the crap out of this when i got it. still holds up.

Tad - Ritual Device
by MickMuck @ September 7, 2010, 1:18 PM
Hazel - Truly
Even if Hazel had never recorded or performed another song, “Truly” would still have defined and/or summed up much that was special about the music coming out of the early 90’s.
On a related note, it’s good to see Mudhoney’s ‘Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge’ getting props. Definitely their magnum opus, just an album that works well on every level. Every track is good, and plays its role, even the instrumentals. “Fuzzgun ’91” provides as clear and complete a summary of what makes that band great as anything in their catalog. I’m gonna put it on right now!
by sirius @ September 7, 2010, 1:42 PM
the Come track here is simply the finest piece of rock and roll that came out of Sub Pop in the 90s
by streetrepair @ September 7, 2010, 1:45 PM
I Can hear the monkeys laugh
“The Well-Tempered Monkey” by Six Finger Satellite on the Machine Cuisine 10" single.
I just listened to this for the first time in possibly ever and it’s completely nuts. Was it actually released? Did this ever exist? Am I real?
And, of course, “Sylvia Hotel”.
by M. Olsen @ September 7, 2010, 3:05 PM

Sunny Day Real Estate - Seven
So many great songs, guys. You really shaped the 90s into something to be proud of. I pick Seven because to me it was a wake-up call. It took me in another direction as a music fan and has remained relevant to me ever since. Every time this song comes on, I turn it up louder. Every time. Thanks!

And forgot to make an announcement on our site. Classic.
But yes, two winners were chosen at random but specifically from Facebook and here at subpop.com’s comments – so congrats, Greg P from PA and Kristen Y from FL, you hit the Sub Pop jackpot.
