Our Top 10 Suede Songs looks at the songs of a band that was very popular in the United Kingdom but never broke big in the United States where they were known as The London Suede. The band’s peak of popularity occured in the 1990s when they enjoyed great success fueling what was often called the new British pop movement or simply called Britpop. Along with bands like Oasis and Blur, the group Suede countered the grunge movement in the United States at the time.

The group’s first album was released in 1993 entitled Suede. Throughout the years the group released eight studio albums and 31 singles. In the early 90s they were hailed by a British music trade magazine as being the best new British pop band of the 90s. Our top 10 Suede songs list picks out 10 of our favorite songs by this great band.
