      Mike Patton was one of the more brilliant song writers of the 90's.

      The best song to get pumped up for a hockey game.
    • 8. Naveed by Our Lady Peace
      Classic bass playing in this one
    • 7. Under The Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      An impressive use of the talents of one of the most talented groups out there

      The best live bar song ever. You can almost smell the smoky air when listening to it.

    • 2. Cumbersome by Seven Mary Three
      One of the catchiest collections of music and lyrics in history
    • 1. Leader Of Men by Nickelback

    By: Ben

    By: Manny
    • 10. Backwater by Meat Puppets
      Just a great song a good beat that I really like.
    • 9. Buddy Holly by Weezer
      Weezer has a lot of good songs, and this has to be one of them.
    • 8. Creep by Radiohead
      The first but not last we have heard of Radiohead. Big hit, still played on radio today.
    • 7. Boys N The Hood by Dynamite Hack
      Hey, it takes a lot of guts to do a cover of a rap song but yet make it an accoustic version. Good thinking, great song.
    • 6. Du Hast by Rammstein
      Du hast mesh. No, we do not hate you Rammstein, you are good.
    • 5. Santaria by Sublime
      Awsome song, awsome beat, too bad the singer died.
    • 4. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      Deep message from the song and music video.
    • 3. Bulls On Parade by Rage Against The Machine
      First really big hit from RATM. Great song, and they have many more.
    • 2. Lithium by Nirvana
      Sick of how much Smells Like Teen Spirit was played out, but this one will always be the best nirvana song. Maybe not most popular, but best!
    • 1. Pink Triangle by Weezer
      A must listen to song. A lot of other WEEZER songs are great, but out of them all this is my favorite! There is no such thing as a bad/horrible WEEZER song.

    =w=WEEZER=w= "Ay, it's the WEEZ!" - Quote from the Fonz in Buddy Holly music video.

    • 10. 22 Pistepirkko by Birdie
    • 9. Sir Psycho Sexy by Red Hot Chili Peppers
    • 8. Yesterdays by Guns N' Roses
    • 7. No Surprises by Radiohead
    • 6. Low Man's Lyric by Metallica
    • 5. One by U2
    • 4. Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden
    • 3. Elokuun Kruunu by Cmx
    • 2. Black by Pearl Jam
    • 1. Crazy Mary by Pearl Jam

    By: Holden
    • 10. Bitter Sweet Simphony by The Verbe
      Its a pity they dissapeared, because they did what neither Oasis or Blur were able to do: good music
    • 9. Higher-With Arms Wide Open by Creed
      Ok, ok so they're not pearl jam and they obviously imitate Nirvana, but with songs like "Higher" or "With arms wide open" I dont really mind whoever sings it as long as I can enjoy those masterpieces
    • 8. Interstate Love Song by Stone Temple Pilots
      One of the most talented groups of the last years were able to connect with the charts and the critics with this hypnotic tune
    • 7. Under The Bridge by Red Hot Chilli Peppers
      Did I say hypnotic? If there is a song to be mentioned as chance people's lifes, take a listen to this one
    • 6. Creep by Radiohead
      The best band of the decade, one of the most impressionant artists in history, a few albums to make history and some tunes ("Paranoid Android" "Karma Police" "Let Down") that are simply awesome and spectacular. "Creep" was their very first hit, and it totally worths the pay
    • 5. 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
      Its powerful melodies, along with Corgan's strong voice became an instant classic
    • 4. November Rain by Guns & Roses
      Axl Rose deserves the award of merit for being able to make a song like this in his tumultuous career and life
    • 3. Losing My Religion by R.E.M.
      Ever wonder what the term "making history" was about? Take a look at REM, the most talented gruop of the last times alongside Radiohead, and a perfect hymn to pass history. Over the years, this is many people's favourite
    • 2. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      Under the influence of Nirvana, Pearl Jam seemed to be the last survivors from grunge music, killed by Britney Spears or Celine Dion. "Jeremy" may not be their best song, but its force and magnificent video was the best of 1992
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Ok, there's no doubt about why this is the most important song of the 90's, if not of history! The song that changed a generation and started a new horizon in music

    that is my rock list, the better and my favourite. The Pop one would be filled with Madonna, Sheryl Crow or U2
    By: Angel
    • 10. Dear Mama by Tupac
      dear mama
    • 9. Change The World by Bone Thugs N Harmony
      tha way life is
    • 8. Fuk Da Police by Nwa
    • 7. Nirvana by Smells Like Teen Spirit
    • 6. Bitch by Meredith Brooks
      evry chick can relate to it
    • 5. Life Goes On by Tupac
    • 4. All My Life by Kc&jojo
      dat song makes me wanna cry
    • 3. I Believe I Can Fly by R Kelly
    • 2. Waterfalls by Tlc
      a good message... whos to blame for tootin caine into your on veins
    • 1. Changes by Tupac
      the most influencal rapper of all time, the king of the mike puts life into perspective
