The sex song.
- 6. I'll Take You There by The Hi-Fives
Local punk rock at it's best. I'll miss you John Denry!
- 5. Boyz N Tha Hood by Dynamite Hack
White boy rap at it's best. None of that Slim Shady bullshit.
- 4. Cailin by Unwritten Law
For personal reasons...
- 3. Creep by Radio Head
It's the first Radio Head son I heard of so it's my favorite.
- 2. Popular by Nada Surf
What angry teenager wouldn't love this song?
- 1. This Is A Call by Foo Fighters
Classic Foo Fighters
Very sexy...And fun.
- 10. Enter Sandman by Metallica
Well i disgust this group with all my heart, but its not right to leave them off the top 10 list, so ill be nice and stick them in here cuz they made great music.
- 9. Red Hot Chili Peppers by Under the Bridge
Great song, great group, need i say more?
- 8. Wonderwall by Oasis
One of the best songs of its time, something we listened to over and over without boredom.
- 7. Pearl Jam by Better Man
My fave song by them without a doubt, last kiss and jeremy are other good ones.
- 6. Interstate Love Song by Stone Temple Pilots
A great song i can listen to over and over, also check out plush and creep.
- 5. Don't Speak by No Doubt
Well where they are nowadays i would love to take them off list list, but i loved the song with all my heart when it came out, tragic kingdom was such an addictive album, but then they kill it with the garbage they call music today.
- 4. One Headlight by Wallflowers
This was my other favorite group in their day (second to green day), but with many people they were never that big, great music, great songs.
- 3. Good Riddiance by Green Day
My personal fave of green days songs, they have so many good songs, but as you may notice i wanted to limit my top 10 list to one song per group, if you dont like green day, then go live in cuba, and thats all i have to say about that.
- 2. Bullet With Butterfly Wings by Smashing Pumpkins
My favorite group after they finished, i didnt really appreciate their music sadly until they were gone, and now i wish they never left, other great songs were 1979, stand inside your love, tonight, thirty three, etc.
- 1. Smells Like Teen Spirt by Nirvana
No comment is really needed, simply the best song ever to come from this time.
Ok my list can definitely be argued after Smells Like Teen Spirt, that is definitely the number 1, after that, its a good battle which i even change my ideas from time to time, but these are def some of the top rock songs of the 90s no doubt about it.
