    By: Ben
    • 10. Rooster by Alice In Chains
      The coolest AIC song, probably should be number 4 or 5 on this list.
    • 9. One Headlight by The Wallflowers
      Sort of a disappointing band, but an awesome song none the less.
    • 8. April 26, 1992 by Sublime
      Sublime's best song, just ahead of Santeria.
    • 7. Mrs. Potter's Lullaby by Counting Crows
      The coolest song by a band with a lot of them.
    • 6. Like Suicide/the Day I Tried To Live by Soundgarden
      Like Suicide just sounds cool, The Day I Tried to Live has some seriously awesome lyrics.
    • 5. Lightning Crashes by Live
      Cool song, but I like Ed's voice to begin with.
    • 4. Lake Of Fire by Nirvana
      The lyrics are from the Meat Puppets, but what made this a great song? That's right...typically awesome vocals from Cobain.
    • 3. Soul To Squeeze by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      The best song to chill with ever.
    • 2. Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam
      The guitar on this song is great, Vedder's vox make it even better.
    • 1. Creep by Stone Temple Pilots
      Barely better than Yellow Ledbetter, probably because of the lyrics. Hopefully Scott won't get himself back in jail any time soon.

    Aside from songs 1-3, the list is not in order, Rooster should probably be higher, I found the order to hard to decide upon.
