The 1990's were a watershed moment for popular music in the U.S. The nation was rocked by the introduction of the grunge scene, the explosion of rap and the resurgence of a new country sound. With such divergent musical stylings, more and more listeners flocked to stations playing their kind of music to the exclusion of other types and the popularity of top 40 radio, the mainstay of American music for decades, waned. Radio stations that traditionally played the most popular songs in America and helped flourish the top 40 music scene splintered. They feared if they played a popular song of one genre it might alienate the fans of another genre. As a result no station in America played a countdown of the nation’s 40 most popular songs…until now.
