      Always one of my favorites.
    • 9. Walking After You by Foo Fighters

    • 8. Push by Matchbox 20
      Their debut album is the best. But I don't like what the band has become today.
    • 7. Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) by Green Day
      Of course everyone knows this song...
    • 6. Name by The Goo Goo Dolls
      One of the best bands of the 90s
    • 5. Come Original by 311
      A great song to listen and head-bop to.
    • 4. Under the Bridge by The Red Hot Chili Peppers
      One of the greatest songs of the 90s.
    • 3. Zero by The Smashing Pumpkins
      This song is so awesome...and it was also performed by the Pumpkins on one of The Simpsons episodes.
    • 2. The Freshman by The Verve Pipe
      One of the best of all times.
    • 1. Paranoid Android by Radiohead
      It's Radiohead...enough said.

    Note that I only listed rock/alt songs because it's the main type of music I listen to. I tried to find songs from 10 different bands that are the best. All of them are true 90s songs. I notice a lot of people on here listed songs that were from 2000. Of course there are a lot more great songs than these, but to me the 10 songs above I consider are 10 of the greatest songs ever of the 90s.
