    • 10. Desperately Wanting by Better than Ezra
      They have a couple really good songs, "At the Stars" is really good too.
    • 9. Shimmer by Fuel
      I can listen to this song over and over again.
    • 8. Hole by Violet
      I don't even like Hole, but damn.. this song kicks ass.
    • 7. Pearl Jam by Black
      Their first three albums are all excellent. I'm not that into their newer stuff though.
    • 6. Nirvana by Drain You
      For some reason, I can't get enough of this song. It's my favorite Nirvana song.
    • 5. Would by Alice In Chains
      One of the best songs from the "grunge" era. Damn, that was good music.
    • 4. Santa Monica by Everclear
      I really don't like their music. But this song is tight.
    • 3. Hunger Strike by Temple of the Dog
      Great song!! Soundgarden and Pearl Jam come together.
    • 2. Say It Ain't So by Weezer
      Great band, great song.
    • 1. Soul To Squeeze by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      They are my favorite band, and this is my favorite song from them. It's on the Coneheads soundtrack. Remember that stupid movie?

    It would be too hard to do the 10 best of the 90's, so I'm just doing my top ten rock songs. I would put a Live song on here, but I like "Lightning Crashes", "Selling the Drama", and "All Over You" about the same. Wow, "Throwing Copper" was a great album.
