Angela ChaseAs I’ve mentioned, I’m having a 90s-themed party this weekend.  Flannels. Slap bracelets (not really).  Snapple (nope). Nirvana (oh, hell yes).  Chokers (probably). And the rest of the world has caught on.  From Boyz II Men to Matchbox 20, the 90s generation has come back en vogue (HA!).  Even NKOTB and BSB are touring together, for God’s sake (but more on that later).

So today’s quiz brings you 10 number-one hits (number one in Billboard) from an underrated decade – one from each glorious year. Here we are now, entertain us.  No decade clues this quiz.  Duh.

Got answers? Send them my way.
