- 8. Creep by Radiohead
This is an awesome song
- 7. Anthem for the year 2000 by Silverchair

- 6. Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden
This is a really good song.
- 5. Doll Parts by Hole
This is a really good and sad song, especially since it was released on Live Through This right after Kurt died.
- 4. 4 am by Our Lady Peace
Our Lady Peace has been a really important band to the 90's and has had some other awesome songs, including Clumsy and Are You Sad. Also, one time I walked in to a room they were waiting in before a concert and asked them where the bathroom was and they were really nice.
- 3. The Freshmen by The Verve Pipe
Same as # 2, but even more so because it is a true story and the guys are really cool.(and the home town East Lansing Rocks!)
- 2. One Headlight by The Wallflowers

The best canadian group ever, this song gets you pumped up.
As you can see, I listen to all types of music. I think as you get older you develop a better taste for music and sometimes (only sometimes) u go back and see that some songs you listen to weren't so bad. And also I started and finished of the list with the Hip, and any Canadian knows there is some Hip down in all of us.

By: Ly Tran
- 10. It's No Good by Depeche Mode
I'm a huge fan of Depeche MOde from the 80s but only like a handfull of their songs from the 90s. This song is the top on my list that they did in the 90s.
- 9. The Sparrows and The Nightingales by Wolfsheim
A band that sings in both English and German. There are two other songs from them that I would also put on this list - "Once In A Lifetime" and "Kunstliche Welten".
- 8. Blue Lights by Fictional
One of the band members from this group is acutally the same guy from Ravenous and Funker Vogt, the later being the most popular. Ravenous plays a mixture of industrial and synthpop. Funker Vogt is straight industrial dance/ebm and Ficitonal, my favorite of the three plays straight up dark synthpop.
- 7. Trust Youq by Mesh
A 90s synthpop band coming from England. It seems that the synthpop scnene in England, the country that had the most synthpop bands in the 80s, was dead. Sure they had the orginators like Depeche Mode, Erasure, and The Human League, but I wanted to hear new bands. Mesh was the first English band in the 90s that I heard. Now I'm discovering other English synthpop bands like The Nine and Blue October.
- 6. Strange by No Decay
German band that's not as popular as my top choices but still a great band.
- 5. Annie Would I Lie To You by (Forgiving) Iris
An excellent synthpop band coming out of Texas. One of the 90s synthpop act coming from America that I like.
- 4. Save Me by Elegant Machinery
A synthpop band coming out of Sweden. They play the early type of synthpop music (i.e. Yazoo or Depeche MOde "Speak & Spell" period). They sound more like an 80's band.
- 3. Smalltown Night by Blind Passengers
German band that use to play synthpop but now are a thrash metal band. I don't care too much for their later stuff but this song is a great synthpop tune.
- 2. Dinner Without Grace by De/Vision
Another great band from Germany. Their latest efforts seem to use more "real" instruments but still good.
- 1. Sometimes by And One
Great synthpop act hailing from, you guess it - Germany. "Sometimes" is a great tune in the vein of mid 80s Depeche Mode.
There are many people that thought synthpop was dead in the 90s, me being one of them, becuase of grunge and gangsta rap until I discovered the internet. There are many great synthpop acts out there that the general public does not know about because they are not being played on the radio or MTV. As a quote from A Different Drum, an excellent American synthpop label and store stated - "Synthpop is not dead, it just went underground".
