    • 10. Nothing Else Matters by Metallica
      Comment on this song? No need to!
    • 9. Don't Look Back In Anger by Oasis
      An underrated song. Most people say Wonderwall is the best... But I disagree... IMO this is Oasis' best song.
    • 8. Three Libras by A Perfect Circle
      A depressing song but yet fans cry out that this is the band's best performance.
    • 7. Jesus, I - Mary Star Of The Sea by Zwan
      You know this band... Billy Corgan and others from Smashing Pumpkins formed this new kick ass group... If you're really depressed or just plain pissed off... This fucking song will make you break something... They get very VERY LOUD in this song!!!
    • 6. Paranoid Android by Radiohead
      It will take you to another dimension!
    • 5. Cardboard Believer by Full Devil Jacket
      This song is really sad and depressing... Full Devil Jacket was considered a one-hit-wonder... And THIS was their final song ever. This song will make most people cry...
    • 4. Hands Off The Wheel by Oleander
      This song really makes you wanna push your car to the limit. A lot of powerful emotions in this song.
    • 3. 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
      Some people don't understand this song... But if you listen real hard you'll understand... Rumor has it... Singer Billy Corgan wrote this song when he was high and drunk as hell. And he made it into a song and ppl loved it!
    • 2. Heart In The Hand of The Matter by And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
      The lyrics are dark... The piano makes the song darker... The ending is really really spectacular!!! There's better music out there than the limp bizkit/korn crap you hear everyday!
    • 1. Only In Dreams by Weezer
      The greatest guitar-duel I've EVER heard. The lyrics are powerful when he shouts, "Only In Dreaaaamsss!!!". At about the 5 minute mark until the very end... The song can touch your heart.

    • 10. Nirvana by Old Age
    • 9. Nirvana by In Bloom
      when i got away from the army...
    • 8. Rape Me by Nirvana
    • 7. Fall In Black Days by Sondgarden

      Too bad they made it in to a commersial... :P
    • 5. Immortality by Pearl Jam
      Just after Kobain's suicide.
    • 4. Six Pack by Black Flag
      Kurt Cobain mentioned Black Flag in an interview...that made me to listen to the "old" 80's bands and discover LA Punk! And Black Flag. And Love & Rockets, where Maggie & Hopey sing "Six Pack"!
    • 3. Spoonman by Soundgarden
      The "Spoonman" hair couldn't get you inside any clubs.
    • 2. Lounge Act by Nirvana
      So many moments in so many clubs.
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      My friend called me on the phne. "Have you seen the new video on MTV?" ME: "NO! MTV sucks!" Friend: "Just watch" ...and so. The 90's were born.

    • 10. Sleight Of Hand by Pearl Jam
      most people will wonder whether this song really makes it to the top ten list. I have cried to this song. the music, the lyrics , the guitars haunt me like ghosts. But i am addicted to them can't lose them now!
    • 9. Frogs by Alice In Chains
      7am on a tuesday in August...next week i turn twenty eight. I am still young it'll ge great. Off the walls i scrape. I got away. SHow me you're unafraid. DOn't f*** me with me again

      How can anyone not have this man on his/her list. The definition of protest songwriting. Rock on Bob rock on
    • 7. Maria by Rage Against The Machine
      This song gives me goosebumps every time i listen to it Tim Morello's guitar is haunting. The lyrics are fabulous. You can picturize how Nike and JC penney have been treating their labour actually slaves.
    • 6. Across The Universe by The Beatles
      Many have tried to copy and have failed. The Beatles still do the best rendition of this dreamy song.
    • 5. El Macho by Mark Knopfler
      One of the most underrated and one of the greatest
    • 4. Satan's Bed by Pearl Jam

      Billy thinks he's the greatest and he's right
    • 2. Shine by Depeche Mode
      Put on a blindfold and a dress that's tight??
    • 1. Betterman by Pearl Jam
      This is one awfully good song. I sing at the top of my voice. Vitalogy is also my absolute favourite PJ album
