    • 10. All Over You by Live
      Great Song and at least deserves to be rounded up at # 10.
    • 9. Plush by Stone Temple Pilots
      Need I say more?
    • 8. Cryin by Aerosmith
      Seen them in concert like a zillion times and I would have to say that this is their best song of the 90's.
    • 7. Blaze of Glory by Jon Bon Jovi
      I fell in love with Young Guns 2 and this song kicked so much ass, so I fell in love with it as well. It is one of my favorite songs.
    • 6. November Rain by Guns N Roses
      Ok, so on my top songs of all time list this ranks # 3, but on my top songs of the 90's list it is # 6. Doesn't make sense? Well I just don't like to mention it with 90's mucic but still wanna give it credit by putting it up here.
    • 5. No Rain by Blind Melon
      It is the perfect song for a calm setting. It kicks major ass.
    • 4. Black by Pearl Jam
      The Lyrics alone make this song amazing. I reccomend listening to it over and over again because it kicks so much ass.
    • 3. Everlong by Foo Fighters
      Some people might disagree with me on this one, but I have not played a song more while driving than this one. It has that mellow good song but also kick ass song feel at the same time.
    • 2. Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      It is a classic and I have always loved the RHCP. This song brings out the best in everyone, because we all know the words to it.
    • 1. Lightning Crashes by Live
      It is probably one of the most amazing songs I have ever heard and would make my top 10 of all time.

    Ok so I just got into 90's rock bands so I had a little trouble but that is the best I could do.
    By: Josh Eagan
    • 10. Time of Your Life by Green Day
      A slow balad by a punk band. A song that will live forever.
    • 9. Better Man by Pearl Jam
      Perhaps not their best - but a classic that defined their "Vitalogy" release.
    • 8. 3 A.M. by Matchbox 20
      A great song and yet another band with feel good rock.
    • 7. Are You Gonna Go My Way by Lenny Kravitz
      It just rocks.
    • 6. If I Had a Million Dollars by Barenaked Ladies
      This band is only known for their radio successes "One Week" and "Pinch Me". They have so much more to offer.
    • 5. Only Wanna Be With You by Hootie and the Blowfish
      Yup, 2 song from one album. IT'S THAT GOOD!
    • 4. Run Around by Blues Traveler
      At the time stayed in the top 40 longer than anysong - EVER!!! See DMB's desription.
    • 3. What Would You Say by Dave Matthews Band
      Immediately after Hootie burst on to the scene other bands with similar sounds got play - including DMB.
    • 2. All For You by Sister Hazel
      Underappreciated band from Florida. All of their songs rock, this happens to be a feel good pop song.
    • 1. Hold My Hand by Hootie and the Blowfish
      Biggest Hit of the Mid 90's. Brought Bar Rock back into spotlight in a time of Grunge.
