    • 10. Porcelain by Moby
      Such a beautifully mellow song. Moby has many talents, most of which come out in this song.
    • 9. 9 P.M. (Till I Come) by ATB
      It's an oldie, but a goodie
    • 8. I'll Fly With You by Giga DiAgnostico
      Such a beautiful song! Depending on what mood you're in it could make you smile or cry. Ahhhh true art...
    • 7. Children of the Sandstorm by Da Rude vs. Robert Miles
      This is one of those songs that makes you go "DAMN I gotta dance!" hen you hear it.
    • 6. Sandstorm by Da Rude
      This is the one techno song that EVERYONE knows
    • 5. I Need A Miracle by Fragma
      It's so upbeat it could make the Grinch smile
    • 4. Zombie Nation by Kenkraft 2000
      It's Zombie nation. I shouldn't have to say anything more.
    • 3. Expecting more from Ratty by Scooter
      English boys who've gotten very little recognition.Lets give them some.
    • 2. Moonlight Shadow by DJ Mystik
      It took me a long time to find the complete version of this song anywhere, and I still don't think I have the longest version of it. If anyone finds it let me know....
    • 1. GO by Moby
      Moby's Busted out over the past 10 years like nobody's business. This was one of his first songs to be heard outside of the underground.

    This is mostly a techno/ trance list. I was saddened to see that there was only one song that would fall into this catagory on anyone else's list (Rainbow to the Stars by DJ Mystik).

    • 9. About A Girl by Nirvana

    By: Mike Johnston
    • 10. Superman's Dead by Our Lady Peace
      Classic song by a good band. OLP seemed to fade away unfortunately. The song sort of peices reality together.
    • 9. What I Got by Sublime
      A death in the band was the only was this band didn't get top billing fame. Great happy-go-lucky song. Good for when you first start going out with some really cool and hot chick. Play it over and over.
    • 8. Mudshovel by Staind
      First time in 99 that Staind hit the airwaves. Their newer stuff is too whiney for my liking as compared to this song.
    • 7. Walk by Pantera
      Good angry song. RVD's old music. This song defines early 90's hard rock/grunge.
    • 6. Creep by Radiohead
      If you ever got dumped or rejected hardcore by anyone, you could relate to this song at the time. So obviously, I did a lot of relating.
    • 5. Bawitaba by Kid Rock
      Pump-up music at its greatest. Kid Rock's CD "Devil Without a Cause" was one of the best late 90's CDs. No songs to skip over on the CD. Ontop of that, there is a song titled "Black chick, white guy"
    • 4. Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice
      As a white boy looking for musical direction, this song was totally cool to see get big. Too bad he didn't stop after making this song. Poor guy.
    • 3. Ken 2012 by (hed) p.e.
      I guaruntee listening to the CD "Broke" by (hed)p.e. will change your outlook on music as you know it. This is a 90's list, and this is the best song they produced pre 2000. Live, this band totally rocks too, yet they are unknown.
    • 2. Nookie by Limp Bizkit
      Limp Bizkit's album 3 Dollar Bill Yall$ was better than Significant Other, but Sig got more air time and Nookie blew up and cause many people to believe there is more than rap out there.
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Nirvana WAS NOT the best band out at the time, nor was this the best song, but it just clicked for some and turned out to be a timeless classic. Sad to say, but Kurt's death made this song even bigger than it was.

    If I told you to download a CD from any band, it would be (hed)p.e. Check out their site www.hedpe.com and just adore their music. Totally awesome band. If I had to pick 1 rap song, it would by "Synthesizer" by Outkast because they don't do the same bass garbage as all other rappers. Check out my site! www.geocities.com/mikejohnston5

    • 10. They Can't Say by Monica
      It's about interracial relationships and how they affect the people in the relationship rather than those outside of it.
    • 9. Crazy by Aerosmith
      My sister loves this song and Aerosmith rocks!
    • 8. Stay Together For The Kids by Blink-182
      Classic song about divorce and all the sh*t kids go through while their parents fight.
    • 7. Never by Amanda Perez
      I love this song,it was my ex's and mine.But it has a good message about always remembering the good times rather than just getting revenge.
    • 6. Against All Odds by Mariah Carey/Phil Collins
      Best!So cool,about beating everyone else, and getting to the top.It makes you feel good about yourself.
    • 5. Today by Smashing Pumpkins
      Just rocks,good message.
    • 4. Foolish by Ashanti
