The lead single off their 1999 album 'Enema of the State,' "What's My Age Again?" was beyond catchy and helped that album sell five million copies. That streaking music video may have helped get them a little extra attention, too.
R.E.M.'s first single of the '90s was "Losing My Religion." It top out at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and become the band's most successful single.

Faith No More's biggest hit "Epic" was released in January 1990 when the decade still had that "new decade smell," if you will. To say it set a high bar for the rock genre is an understatement.
Green Day was just seen as everyone's favorite bratty punk band, and then they released "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" and showed a completely different side to them
U2 reinvented themselves with their 1991 album 'Achtung Baby,' but with "One" they reminded fans that they were still the same band that could cut straight to the heart of any matter.
The second single from their second studio album, 'The Colour and the Shape,' "Everlong" remains the Foo Fighters' most successful single and radio favorite two decades after its release.

Alice in Chains weren't messing around out the gate with their first single, "Man in the Box," off their debut album, 'Facelift.' It serves as another reminder of the power of Layne Staley's incredible voice.
"Under the Bridge" transformed the Red Hot Chili Peppers into full-blown headliners, and for the past nearly 30 years, they haven't turned back.
Pearl Jam's 'Ten' is one of the best debut albums of all time, and "Jeremy" is a big reason for that.

Metallica was one of the most popular metal bands in the world, and then they dropped "Enter Sandman." Ever since, they're one of the most popular bands and concert draws across every genre.
"Smells Like Teen Spirit" is more than just a song; it's the soundtrack to the changing of the rock guard. With the release of this single, Nirvana effectively put an end to excessive hair metal explosion.
