    • 9. Popluar by I Don't Know.....

    • 8. 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
      if i had to pick i gues it woudl be this but htey alot of better ones
    • 7. Song 2 by Blur
      God this song f*kin rules
    • 6. Mr. Jones by Counting Crows
      i am not shamd to say, i had a crush on the guy with dreds......ok a little ashamed....ok i am crying....i'lll go away now....
    • 5. Lump & Peaches by Presidents Of The United States Of America
      This band is amazing, and while i was sad to see them kinda dissapear, it kinda keeps the nostalga safe
    • 4. Mm Mmmmm Mmmmm by Crash Test Dummies
      hehe i love this song just cause it rules
    • 3. Two Princes by Spin Doctors
      who didn't have this song in there head?
    • 2. Wonderwall by Oasis
      this one kinda ties with CHAMOAGNE SUPERNOVA, but most of my entries are early ninties and htsi was a fav
    • 1. Big Empty by Stone Temple Pilots
      While i think all there songs rock, this is my favorite i don't knwo why, but i cant' not sing whenit comes on, it puts me in a transe

    god so many good songs came out inthe early 90's it was full of perversionand teenage angst...now its stupid 14 year olds teaming up with redman talkign about being dirty when she probably doesn't even know who peter north is, and stupid bands like POD and Papa Roach and Blink 182, a bunch of near middle age men trygin to connect with teh youth of america, and hten of course there are the 90's bands who are still trying to make it, like Korn, don't they realize that after a while complaining just isn't cool? *sigh* while i don't have a solution to this plague that has taken over the music industry i am thankful that madonna and STP are still around and that bands like Thursday, Phantom Planet and the Vines are tryign to keep hope alive. Peace out yall, and keep listening

    • 10. Untitled by Mineral
      (yep, that's the name of the song) Boy did it fight it's way on there. Great layered guitarwork, yet not too complicated that it gets overly busy, and then of course the climax when he screams "I still dream!...". I guess I'm just a sucker for a gradual rock build-up.
    • 9. Possum Kingdom by The Toadies
      One of the few "one hit wonders" of the grunge era. (Sorry all toadie fans) But what a hit! A grunge anthem!
    • 8. Only In Dreams by Weezer
      In all honesty this should be Suzanne (the apex of what "the Weeze" did best) but this is probably their best all-around song. That build up, and the solo. Once Rivers kicks up the volume he owns your soul for the next three minutes.
    • 7. Demons Are Real by Guided By Voices
      Short, sweet, undeniably great pop song. Took a while to get used to the slide whistle!
    • 6. Lover, You Should've Come Over by Jeff Buckley
      I can't get over this dude! Grace would've been an adequate substitution. His voice alone makes any song become more than just a melody. It breaks more barriers than Jeremy Enigk's and is as heartfelt as Robert Smith's. He's the only white male since Van Morrison to really convey "soul". This song in particular brings about any number of 'unrequited loves' into my head.
    • 5. Lithium by Nirvana
      Lyrically biting and even funny for Kurt, and well it rocked. Hey, if it wasn't on here than Aneurysm, Radio Friendly..., Tourrette's or even Teen Spirit would be.
    • 4. Song 2 by Blur
      Is this a little too high? Maybe...but there are a lot of great rock songs that were comparable in simplicity, catchiness, and brevity. I guess it's the "Woo-hoo!" that really rocks the proverbial socks off.
    • 3. Paranoid Android by Radiohead
      Anthem of the decade by one of the two most acclaimed bands of the decade. This song bring everything radiohead can do to the table, yorke's lyrics, the melancholy refrain, the twisted solo!
    • 2. How it Feels to Be Something On by Sunny Day Real Estate
      Kind of cheap to give them the top two slots but these two songs together are upper echelon kind of stuff. On par with a certain fab four. Do I dare invoke the spirits of John and George?
    • 1. Waffle by Sunny Day Real Estate
      It just has all I ever wanted in a chorus. Let's see, how eloquently can I put this? It's pretty!

    Well, seeing as not too many people hit the eightieth page on this list site, it probably doesn't matter that I glossed over Exit Music, Motion Picture Soundtrack (Radiohead), or AFI, Built to Spill, Modest Mouse, Pavement, etc. Hey, and if you haven't seen Everlong on here yet, go back and look, it's there....see? There it is!
