Beavis and Butthead... and CHER?!

So, when on late at night... what does one do?
I get curious, so I decided to check out Remember when they used to play music? Wasn't that awesome?
So I get there, and check out the countdown and realize I know maybe four or five of the songs on the list, when I realize... dude... They have the entire archives of Much Music Countdown on the website.
I can remember the first time I watched a music video, which would be peaches by the Presidents of the United States of America... and then I realized... dude, that would've been 1996. I missed out on the entire first half of the decade!
So I started to pick random numbers and dates to see what gems I could find...
And man... Did you guys even realize THIS existed?
Not only did it exist... but IT'S A NUMBER ONE HIT ON THE MUCHMUSIC COUNTDOWN! The song actually beat out the Cranberries "Linger"
Now honestly, which of those two songs would you rather listen to?
If you don't believe me, the date was Feb. 11, 1994 on their archives.
I mean really? How many kids even know who Beavis and Butthead are now? I only know because I was old enough to catch the tail end of it. They're the new Gumby!
I just thought that was SO incredibly weird.
