25 Ridiculously Nineties Album Titles From The ’90s

Lots of made up nouns and purposefully-misspelt words with just the right touch of angst.

1. MC Lyte - Bad as I Wanna B (1996)

East West Records / Warner Music Group

Because “be” is too long of a word.

2. Liz Phair - Exile in Guyville (1993)

Matador Records

Guyville, USA. Population: 15,000 guys in acid wash and flannel.

3. Sonic Youth - Goo

Universal Music Group

Goo is also the main ingredient of Surge.

4. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1991)

Warner Bros.

Imagine if we lived in a world where the Pokémon character Magikarp is named after this album??

5. Primal Scream - Screamadelica (1991)

Creation, Sire/Warner Bros. Records

Screamodelica is the intense high you get when you watch Scream.

6. Underworld - dubnobasswithmyheadman (1994)

Junior Boy’s Own

Any phrase (no matter how jumbled) that includes the words “bass,” “head,” & “man” is automatically deemed intensely ’90s.

7. TLC - CrazySexyCool (1994)

LaFace/Arista

All women from the nineties are exactly that.

8. Gin Blossoms - Congratulations I’m Sorry (1996)

A&M

There’s nothing more nineties than being snarky and this title oozes with the ultimate snark.

9. Chumbawamba - Tubthumper (1997)

EMI / Universal Records

As a nineties kid, you likely giggled at this title. However, a “tubthumper” means a politician who jumps on the bandwagon. This term alludes to the band’s involvement in political and social justice issues.

10. Raekwon - Only Built 4 Cuban Linx (1995)

Loud / RCA

Replacing the word “for” with “4” is about as nineties as an upside down visor.

11. Suzanne Vega - 99.9F° (1992)

We were always skating dangerously close to 100° in the nineties but never quite mentioning it, which is suspicious.

12. Pavement - Slanted and Enchanted (1992)

Matador Records

This could be the name of a made-for-TV Sabrina, the Teenage Witch movie.

13. Xscape - Hummin’ Comin’ at ‘Cha (1993)

Columbia Records

It’s all about droppin’ the “g” at the end - and using the word “cha.”

14. 5ive - 5ive (1998)

RCA

Look at them. It’s like they’re just as pained about the name “5ive” as we are.

15. Da Brat - Funkdafied (1994)

So So Def Recordings

Track 5 is May da Funk Be Wit’ ‘Cha. This is, without a doubt, more inspirational than “May the force be with you.”

16. Sinead O’Connor - I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got (1990)

Warner Music Group

So ZEN of you, Sinéad.

17. Garbage - Version 2.0 (1998)

Warner Bros

Let’s all reflect on the glory days of AOL 2.0 dial-up.

18. Meredith Brooks - Blurring the Edges (1997)

Capitol

Burning the edges … of her Polaroid pictures that remind her of ~*her ex*~.

19. Boyz II Men - Cooleyhighharmony (1991)

Universal Music Group

Instead of just calling it Cooley High Harmony, which references an awesome film from the seventies, they had to make it nineties by squishing it into one word.

20. U2 - Zooropa

Universal Music Group

This just sounds like a futuristic Pangaea or the name of the place where the dinos from Land Before Time lived.

21. Korn - Issues (1999)

Universal Music Group

The only way this album could be more nineties if it was spelt “Issuez.”

22. Hole - Celebrity Skin (1998)

Universal Music Group

Because it was joked that Courtney Love touched a lot of celebrity skin and there is nothing more nineties than Courtney Love.

23. Sarah McLachlan - Fumbling Towards Ecstasy (1993)

Sony Music Entertainment

Before ASPCA commercials, she was desperately clawing for a trance-like state that’s only achieved with adult contemporary cooing.

24. Everything but the Girl - Amplified Heart (1994)

Atlantic / Warner Music Group

Everyone with an acoustic guitar in the “crispy” Seattle weather circa early 90’s would best be described as having an “amplified heart.”

25. Mariah Carey - Butterfly (1997)

Columbia

Did butterflies even exist before the 90’s?? And the ones that did - they only looked like this, right?
