Giant 800-track alt/indie-focused 90's playlist in chronological order
This is a behemoth of a playlist I put together, focusing primarily (but not exclusively) on the alt/indie/college side of the 90's experience. It's 800+ tracks, about 55 hours, and features plenty of songs that tend to get overlooked in the "remember these 90's hits?" pieces that pop up from time to time. Not definitive by any means, and extremely subjective, but it's a decent chunk of curated history in one convenient place. Also it's a fully chronological playlist, on a week-by-week level. So a track released on May 7, 1994 will come before a track released on May 14, 1994. Time and research went into this. Think of it as the Boyhood of 90's playlists!

This project was posted to MetaFilter by joseph conrad is fully awesome on June 28, 2015: "Why did I write so much about this shit. Who cares. Enjoy!"

My only regret is that I drove 16 hours last week and I did not have this at the time. This is great. (You know how in rdio they display a heart next to songs you've liked -- there are so many hearts already on this list.)

This is fantastic!!

I can access them all through the web spotify app, but can only find the first part when searching via the desktop app. The web app is kind of annoying.

Alright I'm stoked for this.

Asking as an old curmudgeon who doesn't do rdio or spotify, does this playlist exist in another form that I can use to assemble my own playlist?

I'm not sure if this is what you need, but here's everything in .CSV format if it helps!

We've had this on the office Spotify machine all day. Thanks!
