    • 6. A Long December by Counting Crows
      It rules. check it out. It's on Recovering the Sattelites
    • 5. The Great Below by Nine Inch Nails
      Lets face it, a single man who can come up with this has got to be a god. hooray for Trent Reznor!
    • 4. Just by Radiohead
      This is what made me love Radiohead. Yes, even the new stuff. But what does the guy at the end of the video say?
    • 3. Mr. Bungle by Stubb-a-dub
      Bizarre. But Fun. Mike Patton is amazing.
    • 2. Stripsearch by Faith No More
      one of Faith's more chilled moments, but a great song non-the less.
    • 1. What The Hell Have I? by Alice in Chains
      saw Jerry at the Astoria doing a set from Degredation trip and old ALice stuff. Also, Layne died on my birthday, so this song holds great poiniance for me.

      311 kicks ass and there are many songs I could have picked for them but flowing just happens to be one of my favorites...

      The entrace of the great Slim Shady. I'm not a huge fan of Eminem but you can't deny his success...

      This song made Creed who they are today. It is an amazing song from a great band...
    • 1. Crash by Dave Matthews Band
      There are so many amazing Dave songs that I would have chosen over this one but Crash was the one that made him famous. ..

    There's been so many good songs out recently that I couldn't add but some great bands have become famous since the end of the 90's! Look for Incubus, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Our Lady Peace, Dixie Chicks, Jimmy Eat World, Lifehouse, Nelly, & Michelle Branch to be on this list in 8 more years!
