    • 9. Wonderwall by Oasis
    • 8. Buddy Holly by Weezer
    • 7. Killing in the Name by Rage Against the Machine
    • 6. Daughter by Pearl Jam
      My favorite Pearl Jam song, over Black and Alive by a hair. This song sems to get better every time i hear it.
    • 5. Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson
      The only song he ever did that i really liked. Just has an energy to it that gets me singing along every time.
    • 4. Time of Your Life by Green Day
      Just a great song. Everyone can relate to the lyrics.
    • 3. 1979 by The Smashing Pumpkins
      A great mellow little song that's a lot different from a lot of other stuff the band does. I was hardpressed not to make it #1 or 2.
    • 2. Just by Radiohead
      The best song they did before going way out there and trying to change music and all. Great, slightly offbeat song.
    • 1. Lithium by Nirvana
      While most would pick Teen Spirit here, i think this was the greatest song the band ever did. Wow.

    • 10. The Way I Am by Eminem
      Eminem is one of the greatest voices of all time like him or hate you can't deny the impact he has had on our society
    • 9. I Get Around/ Live In Die In La by 2pac
      2pac was trully ahead of his time
    • 8. Just A Girl/ Don't Speak by No Doubt
      this is one of the best bands still around and Gwen is ultra cool
    • 7. Glycerien by Bush
      the instrumentals are great
    • 6. Candlebox by Far Behind
      Reminds me of my life in hgh school
    • 5. Big Empty by Stone Temple Pilots
      The Crow,that's all I have to say
    • 4. You Oughta Know by Alanis Morssiette
      I remember signing this song at the top of my lungs with my friends
    • 3. Red Hot Chili Peppers by Under The Bridge
    • 2. Jeremy/black by Pearl Jam
      Jeremy is a wake up call, more people should listen to this song. Black just made me feel so many emotions. Ten is the best Pearl Jam Album
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      You can't deny the power of this song. If you really want to experience Kurt Cobain at his best go get Nirvana unplugged , he will blow you away

    There are so many bandsto name from nirvana to the fugges with killing me softly, the verve, smashing pumkins, soundgarden, nine inch nails there was great music in the 90's Dre. Dre, REM, and you can't forget Aerosmith and those great vidoes, Beck, Arrested Develpoment,too many to name
