    • 10. Pardon Me/Stellar by Incubus
      Both songs are good for certain moods. Stellar is and always will be one of my favorite love songs...
    • 9. Everlong by Foo Fighters
      This song is beautiful. It always reminded me of being in a car with all your best buddies and the windows are down and everyone's having a good time. "...if anything would be this good again..." just sums it all up.
    • 8. The whole album of Weezer (the blue album) by Weezer
      Weezer pretty much started the whole (lighter side) of emo today. For anyone who was into Weezer and still is, this album started it all, including a whole genre of music.
    • 7. Ain't Nuthin But A G Thang by Dr. Dre & Snoop
      My sister and I knew all the words, and would take turns being Dre or Snoop. This was a great collaboration with two of the best rappers out there.
    • 6. Whole album of The Slim Shady Lp by Eminem
      He started a gigantic movement with this album. Although I prefer his new stuff because of the more adult lyrics and his rap style, this album is definately the beginning of something good.
    • 5. The whole album of BEAUTIFUL MIDNIGHT by Matthew Good Band
      No favortism here, just because these guys are Canadian or anything. Matthew Good is my all-time favorite band...and Matthew Good as a singer and songwriter is as good as they come. This album is good for any mood, anytime or anywhere. This album got me through a lot in the last few years.
    • 4. Whole album of Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie by Smashing Pumpkins
      Two classic albums
    • 3. Be Quiet And Drive (Far Away) by Deftones
      I live in a small town, and I totally understand what Chino is feeling.
    • 2. Lithium by Nirvana
      Kurt hit the nail on the head with this one. For anytime you're feeling a little insane, throw this song on and you'll understand.
    • 1. Stinkfist by Tool
      F*ckin beautiful...full of meaning, emotions. Maynard's voice is just awesome and the buildup to the peak of this song is outstanding.

    Other good albums: Green Day - Dookie, Hole - Live Through This, Pearl Jam - Ten, Stone Temple Pilots - Core/Purple, Snoop - Doggystyle, all 2Pac albums, Warren G - Regulate, Morcheeba - Big Calm, Oasis - What's the Story Morning Glory, Our Lady Peace - Clumsy, Radiohead - Ok Computer and the Bends, Silverchair - Frogstomp, Blind Melon - Blind Melon, Soundgarden - Superunknown, All Tragically Hip albums, Sublime - Sublime, The Offspring - Smash.....so many good albums, can't think of all of them!

    • 10. Jane Says by Jane's Addiction
      I know technically it's an 80's song, but it grew in popularity in the 90's to the cult status it enjoys today.
    • 9. No Rain by Blind Melon
      Fun song...fun video...underrated band.
    • 8. Possum Kingdom by Toadies
      Great song...rocks...hard.
    • 7. Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve
      Find another song like this one in the 90's...good luck.
    • 6. Paranoid Android by Radiohead
      Another masterpiece from a technically and creatively outstanding band.
    • 5. Ain't Nuthin' But a G Thang by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg
      Truly brought "gangsta rap" into the forefront and paved the way for all other rap artists of the decade through today.
    • 4. Nirvana Unplugged by Nirvana
      One of the greatest albums ever. If you've never heard it...download or buy it now...absolutely amazing.
    • 3. Creep by Radiohead
      Everyone can relate to this song at some point. "I'm a creep...I'm a weirdo...What the hell am I doin' here? I don't belong here..."
    • 2. Metallica Black Album by Metallica
      Possibly the best album of the decade and one of the best of all time. Enter Sandman, Nothing Else Matters, Unforgiven...yeah it keeps going.
    • 1. Smells LIke Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Brought an end to the hair bands of the 80's and revolutionized rock music into what it is today...like it or not.
