QUIZ: Which 1990s Song Are You?
We can see into your musical soul.

BETWEEN ‘THE RACHEL’ cut, baggy jeans, slap bracelets, mood rings and mists of CK One, the nineties were a decade that fashion and music will never forget.

Irish boy bands had taken us to an international stage, we were still kicking it at Eurovision and we even had our best shot at the World Cup – things were looking more green than ever.

But which unforgettable musical creation from the period most encapsulates your personality? Are you nostalgic like Wonderwall or maybe you’re a bit more cheeky like Wannabe?

Take our quiz to find out.
