    • 10. Ironic by Alanis Morissette
    • 9. All Apologies by Nirvana
      Yes, in my opinion, THIS is the best Nirvana song.
    • 8. The Freshman by The Verve Pipe
    • 7. Pepper by The Butthole Surfers
    • 6. Interstate Love Song by Stone Temple Pilots
    • 5. 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
    • 4. Lightening Crashes by Live
    • 3. SemiCharmed Life by Third Eye Blind
    • 2. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      The rest of the songs I picked as the top ten have no real basis other than I was a teen in the nineties and these were the songs I rocked too with my friends! :)
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      It should be on everyone's list somewhere. of course everyone thinks its the number one song of the nineties. It revolutionized rock today. Listen to some of your favorite songs and I bet you'll find something in there that will remind you of Nirvana. In my opinion, not the best Nirvana song, but it got them on the map. Nirvana must be at the top of the best bands of all time, having changed music forever. Some say you can't compare them to bands such as The Beatles, but I have to then ask, what did The Beatles do that makes them great? They changed music. I think you get the picture...

    • 10. Private Eye by Alkaline Trio
      this is my fav band, but im putting them last because i have a horrible feeling they broke with stupid kid and private eye in 99.....
    • 9. Weezer by Buddy Holly
      oh ee oh!
    • 8. Green Day by Time O Your Life
      its like, the best breakup song ever :P
    • 7. Blink 182 by Dammit
      not really ablink fan now, but this song rocked my socks so hard when i first heard it
    • 6. Bloodhoundgang by Bad Touch
      ammusingly, the BhG got me into alternativeish bands and stuff ^_^
    • 5. Undone by Weezer
      i challange anyone not to be at least ammused by this song
    • 4. Kids Arnt Alright by Offspring
      damn, when i stared doing this i promised myself i wouldnt be so punk :S
    • 3. Leave It Alone by Nofx
      NOFX are, i think, the best of the epitaph-1993 invasion, and they have better songs, but if you wanna get someone into nofx, its either this one or linoleum
    • 2. Kicking Pigeons by [spunge]
      [spunge] wernt to famous when this came out, so it didnt get very far, but is a legend of a song, and is a force to be reckoned with live
    • 1. All My Best Friends Are Metalheads by Less Than Jake
      its a travestly that this isnt seen as one of the generation defining songs. In my humble opinion, its quite easily one of the best punk songs ever, and IS the best ska-punk song

    i refuse to put a nirvana song down ^_^

    • 2. Give Into Me by Michael Jackson
      Two Words... HELL YEAH!!!
    • 1. Black Or White by Michael Jackson
      I took my baby out on a Saturday bang, Boy is that girl with you, Yes, I said, we're one in the same, Now I believe in miracles, And a miracle has happened tonight, But if you're thinking bout my baby, It don't matter if your black or white... Prejudice is Ignorance.
