    By: Rob
    • 10. Find A Way by A Tribe Called Quest
      Even rappers have soft sides, unfortunately not too many since the end of Tribe have the guts to admit it....A beautiful song from an amazing group
    • 9. 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
      melody and emotion at its best in corporate rock
    • 8. One Life, One Chance by H2O
      Anyone growing up sXe knows this song by heart
    • 7. Disconnected by Face to Face
      This is a timeless punk song, and any song that the artists puts on 4 albums must be good
    • 6. Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam
      Yes, it is a B Side...Yes it is obscure and burried away on the back of the Jeremy single...and yes, no one understands what is being said unless they looked it up....but everyone sings along and everyone knows it when they hear it
    • 5. End Serenading by Mineral
      What Sunny Day Real Estate started, Mineral perfected...this song and the album of the same name are NECESSITIES to any musical collection
    • 4. Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth With.... by Primitive Radio Gods
      The entire title won't fit, but for those of you who have heard this song, you know you cannot disagree
    • 3. Man Who Sold The World by Nirvana
      Yes, I know it is a cover of an old David Bowie song, but it was done perfectly by Nirvana...though the best performance on the unplugged album is the cover of Led Belly's "My Girl"...it's just not as strong musically.
    • 2. There's a Metalhead in The Parking Lot by Slapstick
      When ska was king, Slapstick wore the crown. This is Brendan (later of the Broadways and The Lawrence Arms) at his undeniable best. Touching, introspective lyrics + a care-free beet = music for everyone
    • 1. Seven by Sunny Day Real Estate
      Some one else talked about some emo, this is emo at its best. One of the most touching songs ever written, the poetry of the lyrics is incomplete, but the heart SCREAMS through in the singing.
