    • 10. Machine Head by Bush
      Good song, and alot of people like it so i posted it.
    • 9. Gorilla Radio by Rage Against The Machine
      Great song, had a good political messsage, and the stupid people guess what, some of there guys joined Audioslave too.
    • 8. Loser by Beck
      Good song, and a huge influence on everyone, and the only song I like from Beck.
    • 7. Black Hole Sun by SoundGarden
      Great song, and I want to see in response to the stupid guy who posted this song, and then "Whatever happened to these guys", stupid the frontman for SoundGarden is now the frontman for Audioslave.
    • 6. Self Esteem by Offspring
      By far there greatest song, and alot of us can relate to the lyrics.
    • 5. Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      Again, not my favorite song from them but its most people's, great song though.
    • 4. One by U2
      Great song, by one of the greatest bands of the last 20 years!
    • 3. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      Great song, great video, and it sadly spawned a misunderstood message to some.
    • 2. Enter Sandman by Metallica
      Well, i'am a big fan of Metallica, and this song wasn't there best i think but most people think it is and it probally had the biggest impact, so i posted it instead of one of my personal favorites.
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      A easy number 1, anyone who does have this song on your list (whether you like it or not) is stupid in my opinion!

    Alot of good songs are left out and i'am sorry, and this is a strickly rock list so that's why there's no rap, pop, etc.

    • 10. Dixie Drug Store by Grant Lee Buffalo
    • 9. Tonight, Tonight by Smashing Pumpkins
      This was actually the last slot I filled in the form, and very hard to choose a song good enough to take up my last slot.
    • 8. Set Adrift On Memory Bliss by PM Dawn
    • 7. Girlfriend by Matthew Sweet
    • 6. Black by Pearl Jam
      I think, hands down, best song on Ten
    • 5. Best Days by Blur
      Though I had to think about End of A Century, which someone else suggested and is also a good song. Top 20, though
    • 4. Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead
    • 3. Home by Depeche Mode
    • 2. Far Out In Nowhere by Jesus Jones
      Only a b-side, so most people won't have heard it
    • 1. Heal by Catherine Wheel

    Yes, I know there's no Nirvana...they were never my favorite, though I liked some of their songs. Darn, it's hard weeding down to just 10 songs. I listened to a lot of music in the 90s...really, '91 was the first time I listened to current music since '85. I still consider the best period of music to be from 1987-1995, though there was a smattering of great music before that, and a tiny amount since.
