Hats off to whoever Naxuu is, a Medium user who has carefully constructed an 800 song, 55 hour playlist featuring alt-rock/indie songs from the 90s, all in chronological order.
The playlists are broken into three eras: 1990-94, 1995-96 and 1997-99. And Naxuu was very meticulous.
First, the playlist is split into three parts: 1990–1994, 1995–1996, and 1997–1999. They’re respectively around 300 tracks, 200 tracks, and 300 tracks, for a total of 800 tracks. The total running time is around 55 hours. I want to stress that it’s chronological on a micro level, with few exceptions. A track released on May 7, 1994 will come before a track released on May 14, 1994. The first track is “Birdhouse In Your Soul”, released on January 15, 1990. The last track is “Big Pimpin”, released on December 28, 1999.
This could take a while. The playlists appear on both Rdio and Spotify. Access them through the AV Club.
