      I like their other stuff more than this song, however this was the song that made Smashing Pumpkins what they are today!It's also nice and uplifting, good to play when the sun's out.
    • 7. Basket case by Green Day
      There would probably be no Blink 182's/Sum 41's if it wasn't for this band and this song!
    • 6. Under the bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      You instantly love this song as soon as you hear the opening riff!

      Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder doing vocals, you can't beat it!

    • 3. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Where would the 90's be without it?
    • 2. Oceans/Alive by Pearl Jam
      One of the best bands to ever walk on this planet, if this was a top 20 instead of a top 10, they would be taking up a lot more spaces! But for now i've put in two fucking great songs!
    • 1. Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden
      This is mainly based on the fact Soundgarden are my favorite band ever, and I had to put them in the number 1 slot! However this is a fantastic song from a great album check it out; Superunknown!
