What are your top ten favorite songs from the 90s?

    By: Mike
    • 10. Cannon Ball by The Breeders
      A nice boppy song.
    • 9. November Rain by Guns and Roses
      The song that in my opinion was made at their hight and the one that makes you think where are they now when you hear it.
    • 8. If by Janet Jackson
      One sexy women with one sexy song...if you don't know the lyrics look them up...
    • 7. Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns by Mother Love Bone
      The bad stuff that happens when you use drugs...let this be a lesson to everyone, if you do dugs you could die. These guys could have gone places together. Even in different bands the living members made great music.
    • 6. Empire by Queensryche
      Their only song that I like, but it is a good tune. I am not 100% about the spelling sorry.
    • 5. Losing My Religion by REM
      On the Out of Time album this was the song. REM was one of the best bands of all time.
    • 4. Hunger Strike by Temple of the Dog
      Two great bands get together and make an album...'nuff said.
    • 3. Naked in the Rain by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      Best song on the Blood Suger Sex Magik album.
    • 2. Tired of Me by Live
      It is strange that a number of people over looked the band Live. Their first album, Mental Jewelry is their best! But until the song Lightning Crashes they got very little notice.
    • 1. Daughter by Pearl Jam
      As much as I like the song Alive and the whole album Ten I feel that their second album, VS, is the better album.

    Sorry for any spelling mistakes...

      It gets overlooked, most people don't know it...

    • 7. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Can't be beat

      Again, hard to pick the favorite off this album [jagged little pill], I also enjoy you learn, hand in my pocket, not the doctor, and of course, you oughtta know

      It's really hard to pick my favorite song off of tragic kingdom, but this one it just one of those magical songs, even if it is about her being dumped
    • 4. Dreams by The Cranberries
      Is it just me or does this song make it on like every soundtrack for every movie ever?
    • 3. Waterfalls by Tlc
      Who can deny it? the version with the rap verse by t-boz is perfection
    • 2. Counting Crows by Mr. Jones
      I remember listening to this when I was little; it was the first cd I bought
    • 1. Hook by Blues Traveler
      This is not only my favorite song from the 90's, but my all-time favorite song

    Also, sublime made a lot of good stuff, as well as wyclef jean, salt n pepa, en vogue, bush, but they don't have just a single song to make the list

    • 10. Shimmer by Shawn Mullins
    • 9. Hey Jealousy by Gin Blossoms
      Whatever happened to this great song?

    • 7. Flagpole Sitta by Harvey Danger
    • 6. Broadway by Goo Goo Dolls
    • 5. Californication by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      Although a bit redundant, the -instrumental aspect?- is what makes this song.
    • 4. Iris by Goo Goo Dolls
    • 3. Desperatly Wanting by Better Than Ezra
    • 2. Lifetime by Better Than Ezra
    • 1. Misunderstood by Better Than Ezra
      This is an awesome song from an underexposed 90's band.

    I haven't really arranged these in any particular order (although it says 1-10), rather it is a list I have compiled of 90's songs not previously mentioned on this page that I feel should be recognized as being some of the best of the decade.
