See here: http://pitchfork.com/features/staff-...990s-100-51/5/

honorable mentions go to Diamond Sea and Kool Thing. On this list it was one song per band.

Am I alone in thinking that 100% is a shockingly bad song? A lot of people seem to give it praise and I'm very confused by such a consensus.

odd choice. it's a pretty good song, but i can name about thirty or so better songs from SY's 90s period, possibly even more.

yeah I love. Of course there's way better songs. I think "Diamond Sea" could be a better pick. But no harm no foul. Good song.

I don't know why they abandoned the verse squizzle in the latter period
live shows. To keep it fresh? It's a song, not a piece of bread!

(Note, the "new" live "100%" did not make nearly as indignant as the
exclamation point suggests. Just sayin'.)

Okay pick I guess. I mean, I love the song, but there's probably 60% of Dirty I prefer more alone. That's before talking about any of the other 90's records.

100% is a nearly straight-forward rock song coming from a band that isn't always so straight forward. I like it, but it's no where near being a favorite.

I think that's why I dislike it, it's so straight-forward and simple. While it 'rocks', it doesn't really display any depth that I'm used to with the rest of SY's catalogue.

Yeah, strange choice - it's easily the weakest 90's single bar Little Trouble Girl.

I can only assume that it made the cut by virtue of being the lead-off single on their first album post-Nevermind, and thus the most widely-known. It's their highest-charting US single too.

i do think alec eiffel is a great song, i just never saw it as one of my favourites by the pixies in the 90s. but i don't have a problem with it being on the list because like i said it is a good song.

by the way, I'm sure someone has said this already but just in case no one has... Trompe Le Monde is very underrated in my opinion.

1.Surfer Rosa
2.Trompe Le Monde
3.Doolittle
4.Bossanova

the order in which albums i like the most by them.

Yeah, I'm surprised they didn't put Sugar Kane on there instead... At least Pitchfork halfway justified why they put 100% on there.

In either instance, still cool to see SY get some recognition, considering Pitchfork often jokes about their 90s records.

Please keep in mind this list only takes into account official singles, and usually they will pick the one that did the best on any sort of chart.
