NME Calls Pulp’s “Common People” The Best Song Of The Nineties

    NME released the latest in its ongoing “Best Tracks Of The Decade” series today, and it’s sure to be as polarizing as its predecessors. “Common People” by alt-rock pioneers Pulp topped NME’s “100 Best Tracks Of The Nineties” list. The UK band beat out ‘90s list staples like Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage,” which took numbers two and seven respectively.

    Also in the top ten were Suede’s “Stay Together,” Radiohead’s “Paranoid Android,” Manic Street Preachers’ “Motorcycle Emptiness,” Oasis’ “Supersonic,” Daft Punk’s “Da Funk,” McAlmont & Butler’s “Yes” and Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing In The Name.” NME previously placed the Beatles’ “A Day In The Life,” the Sex Pistols’ “God Save The Queen” and New Order’s “Blue Monday” at the top of its ’60s, ’70s and ’80s lists respectively.
