    • 4. Anything By The Chili's by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      there are so many songs that i like from this band!they rock songs like,sir pshyco sexy,i could of lied,tearjearker,under the bridge,scar tissue,around the world,warped,sikimikanico,soul to squeeze, etc etc....
    • 3. Soil by Soad
      we played this in my band,for my first gig,i listened to it about twice thru,and pretty much made up the rest,now i know, it and i have no band to play it in,by this is my fav song by them,very powerful song,kicks arse,good song to mosh to
    • 2. Losing My Religion by Rem
      not a huge fan but this song is a easy listenin song and just well catchy
    • 1. All Apologies by Nirvana
      i know most people have put nirvana as their top song,most people put smells like teen spirit,and it probably was the best,but i can put it,i could of filled the top ten with my best nirvana songs,coz i am a very very very big fan,but this song,any mood i'm in i can listen to it,i find u have to be in a certain mood to listen to some songs,but this is my all time fave byt nirvan,the lyris are very open and honest,and we need a band that had they same impact as nirvana,get rid of all these money hungry pop bands and the F*****G S**T bands,bring back music!

    these aren't necessary in order,they are more or less are,i have so many other songs that i would like to add,but this is the only top ten i can think of at the moment!
