Playlist for 90s Girl Cult (Season 1)

It all started with the playlist.

I was watching the show Yellowjackets, which features a lot of flashbacks to the characters in 1996, and features some decent music from that time period. But I kept thinking about all the songs that I thought should have been included in the soundtrack. After all, I was a 90s girl who listened to a lot of music from that time period. (I still have most of my original CDs, except for a handful that were stolen from the backseat of my boyfriend’s car.) So I made a playlist featuring mostly female artists from the mid-90s. Trying to think of a name, I thought “1990s Riot Grrl Occult Music” was too long, so I shortened it to “90s Girl Cult.”

I listened to the playlist over and over while I was writing the first season. And because the story is written like a diary, I went with my old favorite way of labeling my diary entries after a song. For authenticity’s sake, I tried to make sure I only used songs that had already been released by the date of each diary entry. (Which is why I have to wait until 1999 to use “Sci-Fi Wasabi.”) You may notice some 80s songs on the list, too, because I was listening to them at the time and they fit the story.

If you don’t see your favorite song on this list, it might be coming in future seasons!
