If you sat down and made a list of the things the internet loves, “lists” and “snark” would have to end up somewhere near the top — so you can hardly blame Rolling Stone for loading up on both with a recent feature dubbed ‘The Worst Songs of the ’90s.’

Country fans can take pride in their genre, which emerged from the countdown relatively unscathed, albeit with one significant, and hardly surprising, exception.
