    • 10. Drown by Bundle of Hiss
      Its ok if you havent heard of them no one has. Great band anyway. Buy their cd, if you can find it. I bought mine at half.com
    • 9. Jesus Christ Pose by Soundgarden
      No one but Chris Cornell can hit notes this high and have it sound this raw and hard.
    • 8. Bulls on Parade by Rage Against the Machine
      I love the guitar in the intro to this song. Chris Cornell will make a better vocalist for them then Zack ever was.
    • 7. Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden
    • 6. Once by Pearl Jam
      Amazing. Wish it got more air play.
    • 5. Heart-Shaped Box by Nirvana
      Great song. This ones not as overplayed so it doesnt get so annoying. I sort of hate Kurt for killing himself cause it hurts his fans so deeply. People died because of him and thats hard to deal with cause he means so much to me.
    • 4. Disarm by Smashing Pumpkins
      Great song. Corgans lyrics are so good. I Didnt like um till they broke up so I'll never get a chance to see them. Dam.
    • 3. Rooster by Alice in Chains
      Great song. I hope Alice in Chains can pull it together and release a new album. They've been together for 15 years so I dont exspect it. Layne and Cantrells lyrics are amazing.
    • 2. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      Amazing song and Amazing band. This song has special meaning to me because a kid at my school killed himself.
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Great song too bad it was so over played. Even 11 years later it is still played excessively. Thanks Kurt.

    All the bands above are amazing. The Gits are also realy good. Bundle of Hiss isnt really 90's but they went on to form Tad and they are so It sorta counts. Namic is good too but the vocals dont come through. I know all the bands on my list are similar and repeat alot but thats what Im into. Anyway they all deserve the credit. I hope I get a chance to see at least one of these bands most of them are dead and gone though.
