    By: Annaleen
    • 10. Santeria by Sublime
      Too bad Brad Nowell lost his battle against the addiction! This is a typical Sublime-song: Not to be put in a certain category! Just unique
    • 9. Daughter by Pearl Jam
      Eddie Vedder.. I started listening to Pearl Jam in 9th grade - and am still fascinated by this song
    • 8. Sex Bomb by Tom Jones feat. Mousse T.
      Groovy! I just _love_ it!! Why isnt' it more popular in the US?!
    • 7. The Way & Fire Escape by Fastball
      I couldn't decide which one I like better.. Another two _so much_ 90's songs! Yay!
    • 6. My Favourite Mistake by Sheryl Crow
      Once listened to it, you just cannot stop tuning in to sing along with Sheryl; very easy-listening..
    • 5. Adia by Sarah McLachlan
      great piano, another awesome "slow-motion" song.. for the more quiet time of the day
    • 4. Karma Police by Radiohead
      why doesn't everybody like this? :o)
    • 3. Man On The Moon by R.E.M
      Another all-time favourite.. I never get sick of listening to the story of Andy Kaufman
    • 2. Slide by The Goo Goo Dolls
      "Dizzy Up The Girl" is a great album.. 'Slide' is an even greater song
    • 1. One by U2
      There is nothing but U2!! I actually like their songs from previous albums (this is from "achtung baby") better, but this is my most favourite u2-tune from the 90's decade

    The 90's have been a decade of variety! So many different styles/types of music! Let's hope the new millenium will continue where the 90's ended! :o)
    By: Luciano Falacara

    • 2. November Rain by Guns And Roses

    By: Scott
    • 10. One Headlight by Wallflowers
      I don't know what the hell he's talking about, but damn that Dylan boy, he's good.
    • 9. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      This is one of those songs that I think you remember where you were the first time you heard it. (I was on my way to a swim meet and my teammate Todd was listening/singing it.)
    • 8. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      I swear to God this is a true story. In high school, my friend Matt actually said to me, "That's a great song, but who is Jeremy Spaulding?" Unsure what he meant, I asked him to explain. His reply summed up this senior's thoughts on freshmen precisely. He said, "They keep saying, 'Jeremy Spaulding is dead'."
    • 7. Eat the Rich by Aerosmith
      A theme we can all (honestly) relate to. Who actually likes rich people, anyway? Maybe someday I'll be one of them.
    • 6. Motownphilly by Boyz II Men
      If you tell anyone that I said this, I'll find you. I don't know who you are, where you live, or how I'll find you, but I promise, I WILL find you!
    • 5. Epic by Faith No More
      Great song, better video. Every time it rains I cross my fingers.
    • 4. Interstate Love Song by Stone Temple Pilots
      An ex-roommate of mine introduced me to a way to listen to this song that I can't shake. I don't care how cold it is outside-I've done this at three in the morning, in February, in upstate New York-roll all your windows down, drive really, really fast, and turn this up until you feel your spleen vibrating. I assure you, you'll never listen to this song the "normal" way again!
    • 3. Enter Sandman by Metallica
      I hate to admit it, but this is the song that turned me on to Metallica. Did you guys know they had recorded stuff before this?
    • 2. Used to Love Her by Guns N Roses
      Another song we can all relate to. (At least, those of us with an annoying exgirlfriend buried in the back yard, anyway.) I'm noticing a theme here-I'm really not a psycho!
    • 1. Water's Edge by Seven Mary Three
      It's just a haunting song that (if you listen to the lyrics) anyone who has witnessed the violent kidnapping of their girlfriend and been scared to tell the police for fear of retribution can relate to.

    Great site! First time visitor, but I'm gonna do some exploring!

    • 10. All Star by Smash Mouth
      a good song never wears out. this one qualifies
    • 9. My December by Linkin Park
      my most comletely perfect slow song. mine. allllll mine.
    • 8. Crawling In The Dark by Hoobastank
      very good song to provoke certain streams of thought
    • 7. Charade by Dashboard Confessional
      ahhhhh I love this song
    • 6. My Friends Over You by New Found Glory
      quite good song.
    • 5. Lifestyles Of The Rich And The Famous by Good Charlotte
      this song speaks my thoughts exactly.
    • 4. Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground by The White Stripes
      I have thought of a whole documentary that would go to this song. it would be tremendously awsome.
    • 3. Warning by Greenday
      sounds like walking to school and talking to my friends for some reason. don't ask it just does.
    • 2. Warning by Incubus
      simply put, it is and awsome song.
    • 1. Hate To Say I Told You So by The Hives
      I yell my flippin head off with this one. if oyu heard it you would understand.

    AHHHHHHHHHH. cant pick enough songs. it should be the top 20. I also acknowledge the strokes, red hot chili peppers, weezer, godsmack, korn, and any other bands that dont stick out in my memory.
    By: Sandy Claws
    • 10. Walk Like An Egyptian by MxPx
      I really like this punk cover of the song Walk Like An Egyptian by The Bangles that MxPx did! A twist on the song from...well, whadda ya know... 1990!
    • 9. Moment Of Weakness by Bif Naked
      Another good song from another Canadian!
    • 8. Lady Venom by Swollen Members
      A great track from when the Canadian group was starting to really get acclaim...S&M 4 life!
    • 7. Is Anybody Home? by Our Lady Peace
      One of OLP's songs that I like the most. They're a great band that have worked relly hard to get to where they are now. They've had their struggles but they pulled through...plus, they're Canadian...YEAH! GO CANADA!!!! ...yes, I'm Canadian ;)
    • 6. All The Small Things by Blink 182
      I really like this Blink song...and the video is so funny!!! Ha ha...you gotta love it when someone parodies Britney Spears!
    • 5. Lithium by Nirvana
      Nirvana was a great band and their songs deserve to be on these lists. They'd be so happy, if todaaaay they saw their band, upon this list...
    • 4. Pretty Girl (The Way) by Sugarcult
      This song is really good...or at least I think so...and I guess that's what matters.
    • 3. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      What can be said other than, it's a great song! Nirvana rocks and though Kurt Cobain isn't around anymore, the music will live on!
    • 2. Anthem For The Year 2000 by Silverchair
      Ok, it might seem like I'm a little keen on silverchair, and I am, but this has to go right as #2...It's my favourite right after Ana's Song. With strong, rebelous lyrics and musical talent courtesy of silverchair, I put this song on my list
    • 1. Ana's Song (Open Fire) by Silverchair
      I love this song so much! silverchair is awsome and the group has TONS of musical talent, Daniel Johns I find especially. He has a great voice, weather it be when he's singing high or low, and his almost completely self-taught guitar skills are amazing! The lyrics to this song are so heart-felt...Daniel Johns expresses his struggle with anorexia through the music and you can't help but be moved by this beautiful song!

    I couldn't possibly get all the songs I wanted to on the list but these are a few of my favourite...after the first few the order doesn't really go like that for me...I could sit here longer humming and hawwing about how I really really want them but I won't.
