    By: Klaus Rist
    • 10. Song Of The Earth by Runrig
      Runrig z�hlt zu meinen absoluten lieblingsbands. die musikgruppe wurde bereits 1973 gegr�ndet, aber erst zwanzig jahre sp�ter sollten sie mit sich ihrem album "amazing things" endlich in die herzen einer breiteren musikfangemeinde spielen. der titel "song of the earth" stellt den h�hepunkt des albums dar.
    • 9. You Get What You Give by New Radicals
      Fantastischer song, der zur sommerhymne 1999 anvancierte
    • 8. Dark Horse by Amanda Marshall
      Einfach wunderbar. anh�ren und genie�en
    • 7. California Stars by Billy Bragg & Wilco
      Mermaid avenue ist eines der h�renswertesten alben der neunziger jahre, auf dem schlichtweg zeitlose und sch�n arrangierte musik zu h�ren ist.
    • 6. Thank You by Alanis Morisette
      Klasse, dass es noch solche songperlen heute noch gibt.
    • 5. Seven by James
      Meiner meinung mit abstand der beste britische musiker der neunziger jahre, deren musik durch alle alben qualitativ immer am h�chstm�glichen niveau orientierte.
    • 4. Blue Skye Mine by Midnight Oil
      Machte im f�hjahr 1990 richtig appetit auf die neunziger. was f�r ein aufregendes jahrzehnt.
    • 3. Tonight, Tonight by Smashing Pumpkins
      1995 ver�ffentlichten die smashing pumpkins ihr sensationelles doppelalbum "mellon collie and the infinite sadness", dass heute zurecht kultstatus besitzt. der obengenannte song ist mit abstand das beste, das die smashing pumpkins zu den 90 �ger jahre beigetragen haben.
    • 2. More Than Words by Extreme
      Klasse gitarren-ballade, die heute noch jeden zu tr�nen r�hrt.
    • 1. Everything But My Pride by Cutting Crew
      Die wohl beste kanadische band mit zwei fantastischen alben. mit dem legend�ren und fullminanten album "broadcast" setzten sie wichtige akzente f�r die musik der neunziger jahre. sie sind heute zu unrecht in vergessenheit geraten. mit dem nachfolgenden album "the scattering" (1989/1990) und der hitsingle "everything, but my pride" waren sie auf dem h�hepunkt ihrer karriere angelangt.

    Es ist traurig, da� heute die musikbands nur noch mit gutaussehenden bandmitgliedern sich vern�nftig vermarkten lassen. sie werden durch marketingstrategen und werbefachleuten so �berm��ig hochgepusht, da� sie selbst mit bescheuerten titeln und grottenschlechten melodien die charts st�rmen. fr�her hatte man f�r solche bands nur ein l�cheln �brig. heute verdr�ngen sie erstklassige bands.

    • 10. Alive by Pearl Jam
      I heard this when I was young and easily influenced. Good thing I was!
    • 9. The Honeymoon Is Over by Cruel Sea
      The best Cruel Sea song I've heard.
    • 8. Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana
      I know it's not everyones facourite Nirvana song, but it's my favourite!
    • 7. F.o.d. by Green Day
      Very funny secret song at the end!
    • 6. Sabotage by The Beasty Boys
      One of the best music clips! Great parody of the cop force!
    • 5. Asshole by Denis Leary
      One of the funniest songs I've heard! This made sure the 90s wouldn't be a non-funny time!
    • 4. Prisoner Of Society by The Living End
      One of the most famous songs of the 90s. A must at any disco!
    • 3. Bad Habit by The Offspring
      I'll always play this song when I'm driving! But i won't put anything dangerous in the glove box!
    • 2. Closer by Nine Inch Nails
      This has one of the famous lines in music history! I wont mention it here though!
    • 1. Aint Nobody by Ll Cool J
      The best song I've heard ever! It made "Beavis and Butthead do America" a better movie. It would have to be THE sex anthem!

    My taste in 90s music seems to be a bit different to all of you, but I'm only 16, so I was very young in the early 90s at least.

    • 10. Self Esteem by Offspring
    • 9. What I Got by Sublime
    • 8. Closer by Nine Inch Nails

    • 4. Today by Smashing Pumpkins

    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana

    Hard to leave Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Weezer, Korn, Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Rage Against the Machine off this list. But very easy to leave off Limp Bizkit, Staind, Creed, and ICP.

    • 10. Self Esteem by Offspring
      Will pump any one up. Smash is a great road trip cd.
    • 9. What I Got by Sublime
      Maybe i should have said Santeria. You get the point though.
    • 8. Closer by Nine Inch Nails
      Their new live album was pretty good.
    • 7. Machinehead by Bush
      Whatever happened to them? I still have all the albums, even the one made in 2001.
    • 6. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      Could have picked any of the songs off Ten
    • 5. Longview by Green Day

    • 4. Today by Smashing Pumpkins
      here is no why, disarm, bullet..., clones, they only come out at night. i liked everything made before adore.
    • 3. Everlong by Foo Fighters
      For All the Cows was great too.
    • 2. Loser by Beck
      Odelay was best album though.
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      also liked sliver, and well actually all nirvana songs rule.

    Lot's of good songs left out but just wanted to say i left Limp Bizkit out on purpose.

    • 10. Percelain by Moby
      The Great Debate: Did the commercial make the song cool, or did the song make the commercial cool?

      This is a great protest song that you can wail to.

    • 7. In The Arms of Sleep by Smashing Pumpkins
      A song off of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Twilight to Starlight. HIGHLY underrated.
    • 6. Low by Cracker
      This song freakin rocks.
    • 5. Been Caught Stealing by Jane's Addiction
      This one barely makes it into the 90s catergory but I think it belongs here.
    • 4. Man of Constant Sorrow by O Brother Where Art Thou Soundtrack
      I swear, this will bring back bluegrass!
    • 3. Self Esteem by Offspring
      Look me in the eye and tell me you can listen to this song without singing.
    • 2. Angel by Fiona Apple
      This is a Jimi Hendrix cover. Like she says, at the end of the song, you'll either love her or hate her.
    • 1. Oh Me by Nirvana
      This is one of THE best Nirvana songs. Ever.

    This was so hard! There should be a top twenty somewhere around here...
