    • 10. Song 2 by Blur
      How could I forget this one ?
    • 9. Doin' Time / What I Got by Sublime
      Love these songs.
    • 8. Everything Is Automatic / Load Me Up by Matthew Good Band
      Load Me Up was released in 1999 on Beautiful Midnight, but wasn't released as a single until late that year. ANd the CD didn't come out in the U.S. until 2000.
    • 7. The Good Life / Say It Aint So by Weezer
      The Good Life wasn't all that popular compared to Buddy Holly and Undone (the Sweater Song) but I liked it more.
    • 6. Hey Man, Nice Shot / Welcome To The Fold by Filter
      Awesome band. Great CD in '99.
    • 5. Bulls On Parde / Killing In The Name by Rage Against The Machine
      Evil Empire and Rage Against the machine were 2 of the best albums of the 90s.
    • 4. Everlong / My Hero by Foo Fighters
      Wicked. Everlong is creepy and catchy at the same time.
    • 3. Be Quiet And Drive / My Own Summer by Deftones
      Very powerful songs.
    • 2. Pardon Me / Redefine by Incubus
      I love this band!
    • 1. Down / Beautiful Disaster by 311
      311 ROCKS! They're one of most original bands ever, and Down was their big break-through.My favorite band. Beautiful Disaster kicks too.

    Other awesome songs of the 90s: 311- Homebrew, Do you Right Sugar Ray- Fly Red Hot Chili Peppers- Around the world Weezer- Undone Beastie Boys- Sabotage Econoline Crush- SureFire, Home Collective Soul- Heavy Faith No More- Epic Nirvana- S.L.T.S., Lithium Green Day- Brain Stew Smash Mouth- Walking on the sun P.O.D.- Southtown, Rock The Party Stone Temple Pilots- Vaseline, Plush Stabbing Westward- Save Yourself Treble Charger- Friend of mine Smashing Pumpkins- Cherub Rock and I probably forgot some but I'd like to thank rock music in general for providing something good to listen to. Keep praying that bubblegum-pop dies miserbly and people stop getting fooled by teenybopper trash!

    • 10. Bullet In The Head by Rage Against The Machine
      A little on the violent side. But hey, so were the 90's. NOT a song to listen to when feeling angry or under the influence of booze. It still "rages" though.
    • 9. Garden Grove by Sublime
      If this doesn't make you sing along and nod your head....you are probably no longer breathing.
    • 8. Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root
      All I can say is....JHC this song f*cking rules. Did that dude go to the David Byrne school of singing lessons or is it just me?
    • 7. I Could Have Lied by Red Hot Chilli Peppers
      One of the best of 90's. Period.
    • 6. My Own Worst Enemy by Lit
      Remind anyone of their first live in girlfriend (or bofriend ladies)? Oh well, it rocks.
    • 5. Loser by Beck
      If you've ever seen this video you know why I put this song up here. Possibly the best low budget video in MTV history. Nice going Beck. And the song is just raw.
    • 4. What's Up by 4 Non Blonds
      Get a good clean copy on a high powered car system and you will find yourself belting this out for all YOUR lungs are worth. Not to mention it's many a Gen X's anthem.
    • 3. Unouchable Face by Ani Difranco
      Obviously breaking up is hard to do for Ani. Great song.
    • 2. Listen by Collective Sol
      What? Huh? What?. Awwww........damn.
    • 1. Graduation Day by Chris Isaac
      Wanna cry your eyes out? Try listening to this after you break up with whoever. Of course you MUST be driving home from their house. Chris needs to learn that long distance relationships DON'T work.

    Yes I'd like to also mention that the whole Dave Matthews CRASH cd by itself is a masterpiece. It represents everything that was brilliant in 90's music. Oh yeah, and one more thing I'd like to mention....nevermind. NO, not that crappy Nirvana CD, just nevermind. Kurt you loser.

    • 10. I'm A Rainbow Too by Bob Marley (Fat Boy Slim Remix)
      I am not a techno fan, but if you heard this song, you can't help but move your feet, and embrace the dance culture.
    • 9. The Chemicals Between Us by Bush
      Just a great song to play over...and over...and over.
    • 8. Hook by Blues Traveler
      A completely underrated band, which ranks up there as one of the best "chill" bands I can think of.
    • 7. Never There by Cake
      A true classic, it's just that "feel good" kinda music that you gotta love.
    • 6. The World I Know by Collective Soul
      Sure its a song about suicide...but it's a teenage favorite.
    • 5. Song 2 by Blur
      Arguably one of the coolest "pump you up" songs of all time. Don't tell me when the movie Starship Troopers came out and this song was in the previews that you didn't want to see it!!!
    • 4. Save Tonight by Eagle Eye Cherry
      A "feel good" song. (A pity they never got past this one great song.)
    • 3. Hey Man Nice Shot by Filter
      A guy that blew away his girlfriend...yeah we've all been there once or twice.
    • 2. Let Her Cry by Hootie and the Blowfish
      A song that is a great companion for those evening walks when life just doesn't make any sense.
    • 1. Peaches by Presidents of the U.S.
      Oh Yeah! You know you bought the CD too. This is a band you either love or hate. And you can guess what my stance is.

    There are plenty of others that narrowly missed my top ten: Korn - Got the Life, Limp Bizkit - Crushed, Lenny Kravitz - Fly Away, Linkin' Park - High Voltage, Live - Lightning Crashes, Guns N Roses - Knockin' on Heaven's Door, Mighty Mighty Bosstones - Knock on Wood, A TON of Nirvana, Oasis - Wonderwall, Powerman 5000 - When Worlds Collide, A TON of RHCP including their overlooked classic "My Friends", Everlast - What It's Like, Soundgarden - Blackhole Sun, Burden in My Hand, Staind - Mudshovel, Sugar Ray - Fly, Wallflowers - Heroes, Counting Crows - Mr. Jones, U2 - One, Beautiful Day, A TON of Weezer. Well...this is like a paragraph and I could keep going. What can I say...Music rocks!!!
