      • No miming: Due to the general ridicule of the show for allowing stars to mime their performances, Top of the Pops' producers decided to insist all stars sing live, however, due to technical reasons, still insisted the music should be a pre-recorded backing track. The rule didn't last long however as many stars embarrassed themselves with their poor abilities to sing live and some band's even ridiculed the rule, notably the all-time classic performance of Nirvana 'Smell's Like Teen Spirit' where Kurt Cobain performed his vocals an octave lower and the band over-exaggerated their mimed instrument playing.

      • New Faces: Two new presenters were introduced in this episode replacing the regular presenters. Mark Goodier, Bruno Brooks, Nicky Campbell and Simon Mayo start to reappear eventually in a few years time.

      • New Look: Revamped set, logo and title sequence to bring Top of the Pops into the 1990s. Lasting until 1995 the new opening title sequence featured a rather complicated weather-vane style logo superimposed over dancers. The music was an early version of the 2003-Present Day theme music composed by Tony Gibber.
