I didn't see the whole show on VH-1. They say "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is the #1 song of 90's. You could make that argument, of course. I mean, if it was good enough for Full Action Hose to cover, it must be pretty good. They pegged "One" by U2 as #2. If you ask me - for pure songwriting and emotional impact - they had them flip-flopped. I contend that a listener in 2008 who had never heard either song would tell you "One" is the better song.
I do not know where "How do you talk to an angel?" was slotted.
