    • 10. Deserted by Blind Melon
      This is the song after "No Rain" on their CD, and i liked it BETTER.
    • 9. December by Collective Soul
    • 8. Heart-shaped Box by Nirvana
    • 7. Lightning Crashes by Live
    • 6. Stinkfist by Tool
    • 5. No Excuses by Alice In Chains
      I'm surprised no one has alice in chains in their list.
    • 4. Fell On Black Days by Soundgarden
      I'm surprised no one has soundgarden in their list.
    • 3. Street Spirit by Radiohead
      Radiohead is GREAT. I'm glad they still exist, unlike most of the other bands on my list.
    • 2. Still Remains by Stone Temple Pilots
      This song isn't a single, but that doesn't keep it from being GREAT.
    • 1. Present Tense by Pearl Jam
      This song isn't a single either, but OH WELL!

    I didn't include very much nirvana. I like them, i just like these MORE.

    • 10. Opposites Attract by Paula Abdul... * And The Cool Cartoon Vidoe Clip:)
      Ths song is so much fun! im not sure if it late 80's or early 90's but i remeber it as 90's so thats why it here... singing with my cousins!
    • 9. Longview by Green Day
      Love this song... altho am more into this genre than i was in the 90's... this one of my all time faves
    • 8. Stay ( Far Away, So Close) by U2
      undoubtably one of the better, newer songs of U2... i love my U2 but this is my fave from the 1990-2000 greatest hits ( not sure of the original album tho) and it is sooooo nice... also with it would have to be "discotheque", "mysterious ways" and "one" off the same album
    • 7. Marilyn Manson by Beautiful People
      This song is soo good... tihs is that song that we always put on at least once when we go out drinking and sing every word! if u live in sydney and hear this song at least once on a thursday night in chatswood... that was me and my friends!!
    • 6. Take The Pressure Down by John Farnham
      I liked John Farnham... and if u dont know who he is ..look up australian music !!!!!! i had the album of the title of this song and it rocked... "Touch of paradise", "your the voice".... and i still dont care if it was released on the 80's it is still very 90's
    • 5. Shiny Happy People by R.e.m
      im sorry... i hated loosing my religion... everybody hurts was good but this is my fave R.E.M song ... its so singable and fun!
    • 4. Nothing Else Matters by Metallica
      This is my fave metallica song.... " enter sandman", "unforgiven 2" "until it sleeps" are all other faves, this one stands out more tho
    • 3. Gangsters Paradise by Coolio
      This song defined yr 7 at High School.... 1995.... thats sooo long ago.. we played it shit loud after a walk a thon ( we walked to raise moeny for school) at the park and we sang so loud !
    • 2. Brick by Ben Folds Five
      This song is soo good, captures so many emotions and.... love it!
    • 1. Mary Jane by Alanis Morrisette
      This song is one of the best songs off her "Jagged Little Pill " album... very applicable to me...

    you're asking me to decide???? im the ultimate music nut, wit too many faves lmao Well, i apologise... when i was in primary school which is basically half of the 1990's, stuff such as 2 Unlimited, Ace Of Base, Ugly Kid Joe, etc etc were the stuff i was listening to... I would also include either " i saw the sign" and all that she wants", by Ace of Base..... anythign by U2, metallica, silverchair, green day, Crystal waters, that song ( dance rnb stuff) that goes " i like to move it move it".... i have a funny story for that one lol...umm what else... RHCP very influenctial, not my faves tho, id include also anything by Guns and Roses, ACDC........ i cant think of all of them....
