The films of the 1990s were big, bold, and left a lasting impression on audiences and future filmmakers alike. Their soundtracks were no different. After the 1980s saw an explosion in commercially viable movie soundtracks, the 90s upped the ante, stacking major films with exclusive songs from some of the day’s biggest music artists, or carefully curating track lists of future indie darlings. Now, 20+ years later, the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast wants to determine the best 1990s film soundtrack — and we want YOUR opinions!
Below find a list of just about every major 1990s film soundtrack we could think of. (If you’re taking the poll on a mobile device, we recommend clicking this link for ease of use.) For our purposes, these were American film releases. Pick your favorites — you can select as many as you like. The most popular picks will be added to a bracket for our panelists to debate in the episode.
Did we miss your favorite? Add it to the space below and we may include it in the episode! Then send the poll to your friends and have them select their favorites. The more votes, the better balanced the episode bracket will be.
The poll will run until July 24, 2023. Make sure to submit your answer by then!
The 32 top vote-getters will be discussed in Season 8 of the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast, debuting in Fall 2023. Find out more at greatpopculturedebate.com.
