    By: Michael
    • 10. Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth... by Primitive Radio Gods
      I still can't get this song out of my head. "I've been downhearted baby. Ever since the day you left me"
    • 9. Alive by Pearl Jam
      The wailing of IIIIII Heaard I'm Still Alive may be the greatest chorus ever. And one of the most fun to sing along to.
    • 8. Crossroads by Bone Thugs N Harmony
      The only real commercial success for Bone Thugs. How couldn't it be when you have a song this good.
    • 7. Island in the Sun by Weezer
      Great catchy song from an awesome band. Weezer is one of my all time favorites.
    • 6. Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      The Chili Peppers at their best. They were best when they could move between their hard rock and songs like this.
    • 5. Interstate Love Song by Stone Temple Pilots
      Caught my ear from the first time I heard it.
    • 4. Everlong by Foo Fighters
      Dave Grohl is the most talented young musician in todays business. A beautiful song.
    • 3. Changes by Tupac Shakur
      Quite simply the best, most moving rap song of all time. What a shame to lose him.
    • 2. Glycerine by Bush
      Such a sad sounding song. Different in a good way from the rest of Sixteen Stone.
    • 1. Come As You Are by Nirvana
      Favorite song from my favorite band ever. Mesmerizing, yet incredibly enjoyable. It had everything for me.

    It was hard to leave out such songs as "The Freshman", "Mr. Jones", "Until it Sleeps", "Regulators", and anything from Dave Matthews, but this is the best I could do
    By: Brittany

    Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, and Ricky Martin do not really count as 90's artists. Their songs have no POINT, besides the fact that they are lame.
