Lately my 6-year-old daughter has become more interested in music. She knows songs on the radio that I don't even know, lyrics and all. And so, when playing my music on shuffle in the car, I've had to be more careful. Like when Snoop Dogg suddenly comes on.
Today, many of these tracks have fallen into obscurity, but they deserve another listen, as they still sound incredible. In alphabetical order, here are my picks for the 90's best singles that missed the Top 50 (with accompanying video links).

Everclear frontman Art Alexakis sat down backstage for an honest and deeply-felt interview. It's good to have the band -- responsible for one of the '90s best songs as well as its most underrated ones -- back together again.
