Fear Street Music was so great that it has me playing the great lineup of songs from the 90s, the flashbacks are real!
The fear street music is simply amazing such a great tribute to some of the best music ever made Nine Inch Nails, radio head and Iron Maiden just to name a few these are artist whose music is the definition of the 90s.
The integration of these fabulous songs only made me have more interest in the film than when I blindly tuned in with millions around the world for the premiere of Fear Street 1994 on Netflix.
It’s down to Sunnyside VS Shadyside which almost certainly is an American social issue of bad kids VS, good kids, from the 90s perspective being displayed as two towns.
Clearly, Shadyside has the best music and the edgiest attitude over the preppy Sunnyside who most definitely listens to 90s pop instead of the great alternative music that ruled and defined the grunge style that was the 90s.
You can enjoy these beautiful songs from the nineties in Fear Street.

- Only Happens When it Rains – Garbage
- Fear of the Dark – Iron Maiden
- Machinehead – Bush

There is even a Spotify playlist for the great music lineup.
If you pay close attention to the set in the Shadyside mall and the bedrooms of the young stars you will notice great references and posters to the true style of the 90s even if some of the data may not fit exactly into 1994 it still brings back such memories.
Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo? Another great throwback observed in the fear Street film especially the sound of the Sega game. Once again great sound coming from Fear Street’s Music
If all the pop culture references aka 90s subliminal messaging aren’t enough the film also holds true to the feeling of the traditional R. L Stine TV shows goosebumps and even Are you afraid of the dark.
Even with the film feeling like a tribute to our favorite young teen horror shows they do a great job of adapting the film to adult audiences bringing back all of us born in the mid-80s to our young teen years in the 90s.
This film has a great connection to the 90s and in finding that if nothing else they have captured the nostalgic feeling that many of us now in our mid-30s and 40s crave.
Kudos to Fear Street for everything that it may not be; it certainly sold me on nostalgia.
