      Hey, I know this song came out in like 2000, and this is supposed to be a l;ist of 90s music, but it's my list and I can put it if I want. Plus, this song reminds me of my cousin QB who passed away, and so, it means a lot to me. DYNASTY!

      This was the hottest song... I think.

    There are so many others, but I'll leave at this. I'll probably completely change my mind in the next few minutes, but then, I'll just make another list. :)

      (94) "Another mother's breakin' Heart is taking over When the violence causes silence We must be mistaken It's the same old theme since 1916 In your head, In your head they're still fightin' With their tanks and their bombs And their bombs and their guns In your head In your head they are dyin'"
    • 9. The Drugs Dont Work by The Verve
      (97)"All this talk of getting old is getting me down my love like a cat in a bag waiting to drown this time I'm coming down"
    • 8. Song 2 by Blur
      (97) Great song, brings back good memories
    • 7. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      (91) They changed rock...enough said
    • 6. Under The Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      (91)"Its hard to believe that theres nobody out there. Its hard to believe that I'm all alone. At least I have her, the city she loves me. Lonely as I am together we cry"
    • 5. Losing My Religion by Rem
      (91) "Thats me in the corner thats me in the spotlight losing my religion trying to keep an eye on view and I dont know if I can do it oh no ive said too much I havent said enough"

      (94) "I am one of those melodramatic fools neurotic to the bone no doubt about it"
    • 3. Wonderwall by Oasis

    • 2. Across The Sea by Weezer
      (96) Rivers Cuomo is a great songwriter. "Goddam this business is really lame I gotta live on an island to find the juice So you send Me your love From all around the world As if I could live on words and dreams and a million screams Oh, how I need a hand in mine to feel Why are you so far away from me?
    • 1. Angels by Robbie Williams
      (97) "When I'm feeling weak and my pain walks down a one way street I look above and I know I'll always be blessed with love" This is just a great song too good for someone who used to b in a boyband!

    I love all these songs theyre not my favourites (well the first 2 are) but theyre all great songs i remember hearing back then! Notice also that I was born in 1983 and I must have missed some of the good stuff! oh and the people who put imagina in their lists...dont they know john lennono died in 1980? lol

    • 10. Good by Better Than Ezra
      Just an all around, shall i say, good song
    • 9. Beck by Loser
      Captures the mid-nineties very well
    • 8. Jane's Addiction by Been Caught Stealing
      Fun song
    • 7. Pearl Jam by Jeremy
      Very good song with a very good meaning
    • 6. Collective Soul by Spit Me Out
      This is such a great song, and i still don't know why i am not giving it a higher rating
    • 5. Folk Implosion by Natural One
    • 4. Butthole Surfers by Avalanche
      Wierd song but still good nonetheless
    • 3. Alice in Chains by I Stay Away
      This was such a great band, and this is a beautiful song that should played more often
    • 2. Weezer by Buddy Holly
      What a great song. What a great band. What a great video.
    • 1. I Got a Girl by Tripping Daisy
      I'm a tripping daisy fan, and this is probably the only single that anyone would recognize, however another cd they made (Jesus Hits Like the Atom Bomb) is very underated and deserves a listen. This is a great song.

    Well, as you can tell these are all songs from the mid-nineties. Before then I didn't listen to the latest music so for a small period i listened to the radio day and night until music suddenly got worse. Since then I have listened to older music in search of something more
