‘Barbie Girl’ Voted Worst Song of the ’90s by Rolling Stone Readers – See What Else Made the List

Barbie Girl Worst Song of the '90s

Rolling Stone asked their readers to name the worst songs of the ’90s and ‘Barbie Girl,’ Danish group Aqua’s infectious techno-pop take on Mattel’s iconic doll, took first place.

Following ‘Barbie Girl’ on the worst-of-the-’90s list were two songs that inspired brief dance crazes: ‘Macarena’ by Los Del Rio, and then ‘Achy Breaky Heart,’ by Billy Ray Cyrus (pop of Miley Cyrus.

The top ten list is dominated by novelty songs, such as Right Said Fred’s ‘I’m Too Sexy,’ but a couple of serious efforts made the cut, like Celine Dion’s Titanic of a hit ‘My Heart Must Go On’ and 4 Non Blondes’ ‘What’s Up?’
