    • 10. Out Of Space by Prodigy
      Weird group, weird song, but very special and very popular.
    • 9. Last Train To Trancentral by The Klf
      Same time as Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer. Something fresh and hard on the scene.
    • 8. Green Day by Basket Case
      Same time as The Offspring, new age punk.
    • 7. Dont Speak by No Doubt
      A very special new style in the 90`s. It is 2003 and I still like their style.
    • 6. The Offspring by Come Out And Play
      New age punk, very popular in the middle 90`s.
    • 5. Siddharta by Pot V X
      A Slovenian band that could compare with bands on internation music scene and I hope one day they will be world music stars. www.siddharta.net
    • 4. Bryan Adams by Everything I Do ( I Do It For You )
      I`m not really a romantic songs fan, but this one was a great one. I remember that it was on the charts for more than a year! I`m sure this song is going to be an evergreen.
    • 3. Roxette by Joyride
      This song was on the charts for more than a year! Every time on the school dance :)
    • 2. Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice
      Vanilla ice was one of the most remarkable music artists of the early 90`s
    • 1. You Could Be Mine by Guns N Roses
      Terminator 2 was very successful also because of the great soundtrack

    The 90`s were a great time for music. I grew up in the 90`s and first music I started to listen to was the music of the 90`s. I think that in the time of electronic music the artists are becoming less important and the music quality will never grow. I think the 90`s were the highest quality point of the music. I`m proud to grow up in that time.

    By: Bryan Oglesby
    • 10. Man on the Moon by REM
      A little repetitive, but besides that the song is perfect.
    • 9. The Zombie by The Cranberries
      Vocals are amazing.
    • 8. Are You Gonna Go My Way by Lenny Kravitz
      Greatest guitar riff!
    • 7. Tonight, Tonight by Smashing Pumpkins
      Smasking Pumpkins with a full orchastra, also a very catchy tune.
    • 6. Jeremy/Alive/Black by Pearl Jam
      The solo in Alive is the best I've ever heard, and Eddie Vedder really shows off his song writing and vocal talent in both Jeremy and Black.
    • 5. Sweet Child of Mine by Guns and Roses
      Great tune.
    • 4. Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chilli Peppers
      Slow Chili Peppers song that made the world fall in love with the seemingly loud, bizarre, hair band.
    • 3. Losing My Religion/Everybody Hurts by REM
      Very spiritual, inspirational pieces from REM. Great lyrics, great melody, classic music.
    • 2. Nothing Else Matters/ The Unforgiven by Metallica
      Slow Metallica songs are the most classic.
    • 1. November Rain by Guns and Roses
      All around great song, but the solo at the end is priceless! Axle is surprizingly good on piano and sings like a pro.

    • 10. Closer by Nine Inch Nails
      Trent Resnor broke through the censorship barrier and even though the song had some very questionable lyrics, it was made popular even though the censors fought so hard to keep it from becoming released. Very influencial in the upcoming years with newer bands and more "questionable" songs.
    • 9. November Rain by Guns and Roses
      Guns and Roses was THE influencial rock band at the beginning of the 90s and with their Use your Illusion 1 & 2 albums, the brought Rock more mainstream and to a new listening crowd. November Rain was the first really emotional song they put out that helped with this.
    • 8. Come As You Are by Nivana
      The second song from the Nirvana album which was the influence to all the new music in the 90s and today
    • 7. Freak on a Leash by KoRn
      Led to the Family values tour, and without them, Limp Bizkit would probably never be, awesome song, band, and album!
    • 6. Trip Like I Do by Crystal Method
      Brought Techno into the mainstream. Got more house/trance/tecnho on the charts
    • 5. One by Metallica
      More a great song for it's emotional video and message, but still a knockout!
    • 4. 1979 by Smashin Pumkins
      Led to a new sound in Rock.
    • 3. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      One of the greatest, meaningful songs of the 90s. A great message and an awesome song!
    • 2. Nookie by Limp Bizkit
      In the later 90's, Limp Bizkit emerged as a music style for the new millenium. They earn #2 for their smash into the new century and leading so many new bands to the same genre.
    • 1. Smells like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Kurt Cobain and his brilliant lyrics opened the door to a new generation of music, attitude, and look. They ARE Gen-X.

    • 8. Thirty-Three by Smashing Pumpkins
      quite different from the usual smashing pumpkin songs because it talk about...well it is a tipical awesome smashing pumpkins song
    • 7. Does Anyone Care by The Cranberries
      for people that dont get the right attention this song is good for them....for people that arent talked about in a good way as much as somebody else this song works.
    • 6. Ava Adore by Smashing Pumpkins

    • 3. 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
      like all of the smashing pumpkin songs it is just amazing. i have never loved a band so much in my life. and i hope i never like one more then this one or love another band because it is just awesome.
    • 2. Thugz Holiday by Trick Daddy
      it has so much truth and meaning in it.....now i'm not a gushy person. i dont like love songs. but this isnt a love song its the or a truth of things that actually should matter in everybodys life.
    • 1. Disarm by Smashing Pumpkins
      i am speachless. i never thought that i would love a song soooo much. and i am a smashing pumpkins fan. though i'm much more then a fan. the song is incredable...it was one of the first songs that i heard from smashing pumpkins. i could go on and on and on about the song but i wont waste your time....its just incredibly amazingly extrordinarily out of this world. it makes people come to think about things they wouldnt normaly think about....about things that are more important than life its self....thats what most smashing pumpkins songs does to me

    Smashing Pumpkins is incredible..and this site is sooooo cool because i have been wanting to write my favorite songs on some site hehe...so thanks and later
