We’re excited that The Duff is finally in theaters since it’s been a while since we’ve had a teen comedy in theaters – unlike the 90s when one seemed to open every week. Here are some of our favorite 90s teen movies and their best musical moments.
The greatest movie of all time, and one of the greatest soundtracks, with everyone from Coolio to Radiohead to the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. The soundtrack is being reissued in April on vinyl for its 20th (!!!) anniversary.
2. Drive Me Crazy
Starring a pre-Entourage Adrian Grenier and a post-Sabrina Melissa Joan Hart, with a theme song by Britney Spears.
3. She’s All That
So many great musical moments, like Rachel Leigh Cook walking down the stairs to “Kiss Me” by Sixpence None the Richer. But our favorite is the dance scene, where the entire school knows the choreography to “Funk Soul Brother” by Fatboy Slim.
4. Never Been Kissed
Michael Vartan = bae. We can’t listen to the Beach Boys’ “Don’t Worry Baby” without thinking of this movie’s ending.
5. 10 Things I Hate About You
Everyone wanted to be serenaded by Heath Ledger.
