      This song is the intro song for the toronto maple leafs which is saying alot! Marlyon Manson is the most unique preformer there is out there and alot of people wont even listen to his music because of what he looks like but this song is really amazing!!
    • 2. Song 2 by Blur
      This song is short,heavy and once you hear it you cant get it outta your head! Face it this song is the theme song for everything eg. HOCKEY baseball soccer ect.

      This song changed music forever and so did the lead singer! His life was a mess filled with depression but i think he handled it really well I mean he did have a daughter which for the last part of his life became everything to bad courtney love distroyed him!! Peace love empathy

    • 10. Everything to Everyone by Everclear
      This is my all-time favorite song. It describes me exactly. Aah, the joys of relating to music...
    • 9. Boys of Summer by Ataris
      Okay, so I can't technically back up the 90s validity of this song because I have no idea when it was first released. But it's a great, great, great cover.
    • 8. Santa Monica by Everclear
      I saw them in concert when I was a freshman in high school, and they played this song. It was awesome. Great, great, great song.
    • 7. Dolphins Cry by Live
      Another one of those love songs..
    • 6. All for You by Sister Hazel
      This, to me, is actually a sad song, but the tune of it doesn't make it sound that way.
    • 5. Tearjerker by Fenix TX
      I love Fenix TX. This is the perfect break-up song.
    • 4. Amazed by Lonestar
      Okay, Okay, so I know it's country and thus equivalent to Satan or the rack. But the silly sentimental, romantic side of me loses it when I hear. The lyrics are so pretty.
    • 3. Santeria by Sublime
      This is the best song in the entire world to listen to laying beside a pool in July. Sublime is awesome.
    • 2. Name by Goo Goo Dolls
      It has a good sound, but it is rather depressing.
    • 1. Unforgiven II by Metallica
      Great lyrics...and James Hetfield has the sexiest voice..ever.

    These were in no particular order, but they're all kickass songs.
