These songs all hit No. 1 in the ‘90s, and it was kinda weird.

Most of the time when you look at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 you’ll see a song that isn’t just familiar, but that you feel makes sense at No. 1.

In the ‘90s we had plenty of long-running No. 1's from legendary artists such as Mariah Carey, and Boyz II Men. We also, however, had our fair share of head scratchers, songs that made you go, “Really? That’s the No. 1 song in the country?”

The following are 12 of the most random No. 1 songs from the ‘90s. Some are songs we now remember fondly. A few we have zero recollection of at all, but apparently they were really popular for a week. All in all, it’s a veritable who’s who of the shrug emoticon.


Because yeah, we loved most of these songs, even if looking back, it’s weird that we loved them enough to vault them to No. 1.


Snow – "Informer"

Year: 1993

For seven weeks in 1993 Snow held the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Informer,” and for seven weeks we attempted to decipher what on earth the Canadian hip-hop/reggae artist was saying.

MTV eventually ran a version of the video that featured the lyrics running across the bottom of the screen, and the reality of it all almost ruined the song. ALMOST!
