    By: Trenton Price
    • 10. Everyday People by Arrested Development
      Why, oh why, do the groups with something positive to say have to break up?
    • 9. Rooster by Alice In Chains
      Cry for the vets.
    • 8. Thorn In My Pride by The Black Crows
      What an incredible mix of styles in one song.
    • 7. Plush by Stone Temple Pilots
      Actually, just about anything off that cd deserves at least a mention.
    • 6. Sad But True by Metallica
      Makes a great anti-drug song.
    • 5. Breaking The Girl by Red Hot Chili Peppers
    • 4. Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers
    • 3. Wishlist by Pearl Jam
      I know exactly how this guy feels.
    • 2. Good Riddance by Green Day
      I want this played at my funeral. Sums it all up, doesn't it?
    • 1. Yellow Ledbedder by Pearl Jam
      Hendrix could have not done a better on the guitar rifts. Sounds almost like a tribute. One of the most moving songs ever written.

    By: David Smith
    • 10. Breathe by Prodigy
      From the: The Fat of the Land album
    • 9. Rage Against the Machine by Killing in the Name
      Anything from their first album: Rage Against The Machine
    • 8. New Order by Blue Monday
      New order
    • 7. Verdi Cries by 10,000 Maniacs
      From the In My Tribe album. Just a great song
    • 6. U2 by Until The End Of The World
      Just a great song. Off the Achtung Baby album.
    • 5. Dead Can Dance by American Dreaming
      Be careful with this one. You will start singing like Jim Morrison if you listen to this one. From the Toward the Within album
    • 4. Divine Thing by Soup Dragons
      This song is very easy on the ears.
    • 3. Lighting Crashes by Live
      Live is a great band. They were very good at Woodstock in '94. Although "Pain Lies on the Riverside" may be my favorite song by them.
    • 2. Low Self Opinon by Henry Rollins Band
      This song for me sums up the 90's.
    • 1. The Cardigans by Carnival
      This song makes me feel good everything I hear it.

    By: Matt

      The only song I've ever really liked by Blink 182.....I liked it a lot because I felt it hit the way most teens feel about life today
    • 9. One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces by Ben Folds Five
      A lot of their songs are very strange, and this one is as well but it's a very up beat song, and it always puts me in a better mood.
    • 8. Bound For the Floor by Local H
      This is a great song, I liked it so much I stole my friend's CD just to hear that song.
    • 7. Polly by Nirvana
      Great song
    • 6. All My Life by Foo Fighters
      Greeeeeaaaaaaat Song
    • 5. Pardon Me by Incubus
      Incubus, in my opinion is a great band all their songs are great they've never had a sucky one before.
    • 4. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      The music video for this song was great......
    • 3. Mary by 30 Seconds to Mars
      This song rocks
    • 2. Rooster by Alice In Chains
      Alice In Chains, such a great band....No one could hate them.
    • 1. You Know You're Right by Nirvana
      Great song, and the video represents just how great Kurt was.

    There were many other bands I would've liked to have mentioned, but of course there were only ten spaces.
    By: Matt Ziegler
    • 10. One Headlight by Wallflowers
      Jakob dylan got his talent from his dad, the great bob dylan, and it shows in this song
    • 9. Even Flow by Pearl Jam
      Another great pearl jam song
    • 8. Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden
      One of soundgarden's more "popier" songs but they pulled it off
    • 7. Losing My Religion by Rem
      Michael stipe's voice made this song what it is today: a classic
    • 6. Loser by Beck
      This song was labled as a slacker anthem, but it is more than that
    • 5. What Would You Say by Dave Matthews Band
      Not his most popular song, but there is just something about it that makes it so memerable
    • 4. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Not many songs can change the face of rock and roll forever. this one did.
    • 3. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      Eddie vedder does what he does best in writing this song. an extremely sad subject is discussed in this awesome song
    • 2. Under The Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      This song can best be classified as a "poetic masterpiece"
    • 1. Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam
      Excellent rhythm and suprisingly soothing incoherent lyrics make this song not only the best in the 90s, but one of the greatest live songs of all time

    Although the music put out in the 90s wasn't as good as the 60s, it still was pretty nice
