SportsAlcohol.com recently assembled a list of the 90 Best Songs of the 90s. After the list was finalized, seven of us got together to discuss our individual lists as well as how they affected the master list, and our general memories of 90s music, from alternative hits to indie rock to representations of rap and R&B. Featuring passionate opinions, a lot of laughter, and some crosstalk, this is our biggest episode yet.

1995 was a crazy summer, I think. As you listen to this podcast, you'll discover that I didn't 'experience' things so much in the 90's as I read about them in Newsweek. That doesn't stop me from breaking down the top ten domestic box office gross earners of '95 with Jesse, Marisa, Nathaniel, and Sabrina.

We ask the tough questions:

What's the best Die Hard?

Why did we like Batman Forever so much?

Do I even like movies?

So on and so forth. Enjoy!
