    • 1. Ants Go Marching by The Dave Mathews Band

    I would just like to tell everyone that the songs are in no apparent order, other then when they came to mind. Also it would be impossible for me to choose just 10, so this is a tiny sliver, a fraction, an abbreviation of the best songs of the nineties. There are so many freakin great songs that were born of a decade that was, well, lacking at best. I mean the nineties some great stuff happened, some crappy stuff happened. But lates face it, it was boring as hell. For god sakes the drugs of choice were extasy and crack, doesn't that mean anything to you. Well thats all for now, but as i always say "Let's make like the nineties, and suck..."
    By: who knows
    • 10. Loveless(album) by My Bloody Valentine
      Quite possibly the best album ever recorded...period! I kept it out of the number one spot because most of you don't know who they are.
    • 9. Any song by the Pumpkins by Smashing Pumpkins
      Just about everything these Chicago greats did was fantastic. I was sad to see them part ways...But, now we have ZWAN!!! Thanks Billy and crew.
    • 8. Mexico(or any song from their debut) by The Refreshments
      Great song about drinking beer and what happens afterwards. They held alot of promise.
    • 7. Charm Attack by Leona Naess
      Cool tune.
    • 6. Mr. Vain by Culture Beat
      I can't dance to save my soul, but if I had to do it, I'd like to dance to this song.
    • 5. Alive(or any song from Ten & Vs.) by Pearl Jam
      What a great band. Another flanel memory.
    • 4. Creep by Radiohead
      Absolutely a cool song, from a band that has really lost it!!!
    • 3. Cannonball by The Breeders
      Just a simple song with a catchy guitar thing going on.
    • 2. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Ahhhhh...I miss the days of flanel.
    • 1. Today by Smashing Pumpkins
      Great song! Makes you feel really good. Long live the Pumpkins. Check out ZWAN as well.

    Well, I hope I've put some smiles on some faces. By the way, today is Jan. 1, 2003. Happy New Year!!! Gotta go get some lunch...bye.
