    • 10. High by Feeder
      Essential for chilling out, reminds me of that festival i mentioned - just hit the repeat button!
    • 9. I'll Be Missing You by Puff Daddy And Faith Evans
      A fab cover of a great song. Great blend of Rap with the original song - and a tear jerker too.

      Experimentation!! it reminds me of some Beatles ideas, the whole album is brilliant and I love the way he kinda 'moans' this song out
    • 7. The Best Is Yet To Come by Lit
      Excellent tune you can't tire of listening to.

      Listening to this too much will make you need drugs!! - anti depressants! but in moderation, it is a tearful classic
    • 5. Time Of Your Life by Green Day
      Reminds me of lying on the grass at a festival for a week! Women, drink and weed. Soundtrack to heaven.

      The Finest Brown eyed girl cover. It equals Van Morrison and really makes you think back to those hot summers with long gone sweethearts.

      I knew I dave song had to be #1 but you can't pick just a favorite song by dmb, they are all great but I chose this one to be number one because I believe it to be the most known

    I'm more into the earlier music such as clapton, pink floyd, zepplin etc. but these are def. my favorites from the 90's!
    By: Splash Marshall
    • 10. Lets Get Rocked by Def Leppard
      Well produced genious and talented musicians!
    • 9. Beautiful Stranger by Madonna
      What a fantastic song. She will never be able to pull this off again.
    • 8. Little Bitty by Alan Jackson
      The moment I heard this song I wanted to sing along.
    • 7. It's Not Over Till It's Over by Lenny Kravitz
      R&B that has some soul not that garbage that came to rule the charts in this decade of mediocraty.
    • 6. Unskinny Bop by Poison
      No matter what this song was great! Goodtimes baby goodtimes.
    • 5. 12 Years Old by Kim Stockwood
      I was driving in my truck and this song came on the radio and blew me away. I felt the pain and emotion of the lyrics from parts of my own childhood. Haunting song.
    • 4. Keywest Intermezzo by John Mellencamp
      Turn of the lights, lay back and enjoy a truly brilliant song.
    • 3. Ocean Pearl by 5440
      Yet another great Canadian band that deserves to be sitting on top of the world.
    • 2. Doin' Fine by Barney Bentall & The Legendary Hearts
      if you have never heard this band buy their greatest hits package for an introduction. Not many artist can pull off simple rock & roll anymore but Barney does it better than anyone!
    • 1. It Only Hurts When I Cry by Dwight Yoakam
      Dwight turned my ear back towards country when he first came out and I have been a huge fan ever since.

    The 90's started out rocking then fell to the Seattle sound and pretty much became the lamest it ever was... But the last few years made a come back leaving the untalented minions behind. Admit it your all glad that it died and pop music is back having fun!

    By: Mark
    • 10. Stay and Drown by Finger Eleven
      One of the mostly emotional and tear jerking songs ive ever heard. Great canadian band.
    • 9. Silverchair by Tommorrow
      Sometimes you just cant describe good music.
    • 8. What I Got by Sublime
      One of the happiest songs you could listen to. R.I.P Brad Nowell
    • 7. Metro by System of a Down
      Whether this song was around before the millenium im not sure but when you feel like screaming its f***ing great. The singers really got away to pull you into the song. Awesome should be on an album, not just a soundtrack.
    • 6. Interstate Love Song by Stone Temple Pilots
      The guitar in the beginning sets the tone for the rest of the song. This song is simply too short. Stp is my all time favorite group.
    • 5. Hero of the Day by Metallica
      Listen to the intro riff and his voice eases you into the experience. Lyrics are simply amazing.
    • 4. Plush by Stone Temple Pilots
      Once again Scotts emotion in this song as well is right from the heart. And the chorus is awesome.
    • 3. Big Empty by Stone Temple Pilots
      At first the soft beginning turned me away, but I learned to love it, after Weilands emotional singing kicks in. Just beautiful, Stp is so emotional.
    • 2. Hey Man Nice Shot by Filter
      The bass line is so distinguishable and unmistakable, while his voice carries the song. If i didnt have roots with the FF this song would easily be number one.
    • 1. Everlong by Foo Fighters
      Just listen to the opening riff, and then the chorus just takes you away. This ones for Dave Grohl.

    This was extremely hard to determine but i want to give props to songs like santa monica - eveclear, and burden in my hand - soundgarden
