    • 10. Comedown by Bush
      Sixteen Stone was the first alternative CD I ever bought - good thing I did!
    • 9. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      It's too bad the mainstream rejects this band now - they rocked back then and still rock now.
    • 8. Unfinished Symphony by Massive Attack
      The European peeps all claimed this song to be cool, so I checked it out and it's really grown on me.
    • 7. Paranoid Android by Radiohead
      It was tough to pick my favorite Radiohead song because they kick so much ass, but I picked this one because I thought it was the most dynamic.
    • 6. In The Meantime by Spacehog
      This song just brings back great memories of my teen years. Had a lot of cool sounds that I had never heard before and never heard again.
    • 5. Counting Blue Cars by Dishwalla
      This is a forgotten great song, was controversial because it referred to God as a her which made it all the better.
    • 4. 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
      This songs just makes me feel like I'm dreaming everytime I hear it. It's alternative, chilling, happy, free-flowing all in one.
    • 3. Closer by NIN
      Try listenin to this one while mom's around! Awesome video.
    • 2. Mayonaise by Smashing Pumpkins
      Don't think this song was ever released but it should have been. I could loop this one for hours.
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Sent chills up my spine the first time I heard it - changed music forever.

    Some other cool songs that I liked were Soul Asylum - Black Gold, Blind Melon - No Rain, Coolio - Gangsta's Paradise, and Alice In Chains - No Excuses. I'm sure there's plenty more to that I've forgotten.
