Song Meme

This one's from the The AnarchAngel who just busted some friends out of Jersey - hopefully for good.

A.) Go to
B.) Enter the year you graduated from high school in the search function at the upper left and get the list of 100 most popular songs of that year.
C.) Bold the songs you liked, strike through the ones you hated, underline italicize your favorite (don't know how to underline). Do nothing to the ones you don’t remember (or don’t care about).

Looks like I really wasn't paying too much attention to popular music at the time. Epic by Faith No More is one of my favorite songs of all time, but I just love the Humpty Dance (or at least the video). What is surprising to me is I could have sworn Guns and Roses would have been on this list too.

UPDATE: Kris at the Dummocrats also graduated in 1990. Looks like we have very similar taste (or at least dislike) in music.
