    • 6. So Cool by Guns N Roses
      think that sweet child was 89 so instead i picked this one. To be honest though this band had so many good ones
    • 5. Veronica Sawyer by Edna's Goldfish
      probably just outside the 90s and a bit pop. But who cares. An I ain't got bored of it yet

      this girl has got the sexiest voice ever though I doubt anyone will agree cause it's sorta punky and wierd.... but then again so am I

    By: Alex
    • 10. Gangster's Paradise by Coolio
      This top 10 is all rock buttt...who can forget this song? I knew every word to it just because it was played on MTV and the radio 6 times an hour. Huge hit in 95-6.
    • 9. Peaches by President of the United States of America
      Everyone knows it and every word to it- no one will admit it, but they all liked it even though the words are retarded.
    • 8. Sweet by 311
      I was obsessed with 311 during 1993-4...I'll never forget the navy blue shirt with the neon blue logo that EVERYONE had.
    • 7. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Love the 90s grunge- list wouldn't be complete without this song.
    • 6. Two Princes by Spin Doctors
      Another classic thats veryyy catchy and everyone knows but no one remembers until they hear it.
    • 5. Roll To Me by Del Amitiri
      Very catchy song- always reminds me of the summers when I was younger for some reason. Never gets old.
    • 4. 'Til I hear it from you by Gin Blossom
      Great song- from a great movie. (Empire Records)
    • 3. When I Come Around by Greenday
      The entire Dookie CD is so mid-90s- perfectly captures that skater-grunge airwalk sneaker part of the decade.
    • 2. No Rain by Blind Melon
      Even if they don't like the song, NO ONE can forget the little fat girl in the bee costume in the video on MTV.
    • 1. Mr. Jones by Counting Crows
      Everytime this song comes on in my car I get the same reaction..."i LOVE this song- i haven't heard it in forever." CC is amazing but this song in particular seems to remind everyone of the 90s.
