    • 7. Nothing Else Matters by Metallica
      Not a metal fan but this song has a universal appeal.... whatever u metal purists might say truly a groundbreaking album by these metal masters.....tho i agree the stuff after this was crap and their egos r twice the size of our solar system
    • 6. Dont Cry by Guns N Roses
      Too bad they couldnt follow-up the brilliance on the 1991 double album smash....spectacular song by these punks

      Not a Nirvana fan but cant ignore them when u talk bout 90s music...this song was amazing

    Again an impossible task considerig the huge array of rock music that has been ignored...Toad,Collective Soul,Van Halen, plus loads of other songs by pop artists.....need a top 50 i think or a no a top 200 might be enough
