    • 8. Sleep Now in the Fire by Rage Against The Machine
      Good band. They broke up. Stupid "audioslave".

      My tied for favorite band... recently, which is why they only make it at number 7.

      Great song. Great album, i want to put the whole album here. (dookie)
    • 1. Sober by Tool
      All time favorite... just brings back 4th grade memories before i even knew who tool was... i liked every song by them i heard on the radio, then finally like 4 years later i discovered who they are. (this is the song that basically started the search for good music in my life and im grateful.)

    Many songs by Lit, Tool, Offspring, RATM, Green Day, Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer, Korn, Radiohead, and even Presidents of the United States of America are all runner-ups and greatly respected :D

    • 10. Man on the Moon by REM
      REM is the best band in music history... Man on the Moon is their second-best song.
    • 9. What Would You Say by Dave Matthews Band
      Fun, lively, entertaining... Dave Matthews is great.
    • 8. Closer to Fine by Indigo Girls
      Female rock with kickass lyrics! Sing-out-loud fun!
    • 7. Laid by James
      Very unique, great voice!
    • 6. The World I Know by Collective Soul
      The best music video of the '90s and a politically conscious messsage as well.
    • 5. Daughter by Pearl Jam
      Another great '90s group- this song is both poignant and soulful.
    • 4. One Headlight by The Wallflowers
      Okay, aside from being a tremendous song off one of the best albums of the 90s- Bringing Down the Horse- Jakob Dylan smolders.
    • 3. Mr. Jones by Counting Crows
      One of those songs that stays in your head forever!
    • 2. Lightning Crashes by Live
      A powerful song, a wonderful voice, and addicting lyrics.

      The best band in music history (again) and this time with their best song ever; both musically flawless and challenging.

    By: Woot
    • 10. The Freshman by The Verve Pipe
      just...wonderful! can't escape it.
    • 9. Don't Speak by No Doubt
      gut-wrentching...gotta love it

      a simple yet effective tune
    • 7. Crucify by Tori Amos
      this woman is out of this world
    • 6. Tonight Tonight by Smashing Pumpkins
      well, "melon chollie" was the best cd ever...and anything by smashing pumpkins is wonderful
    • 5. No Rain by Blind Melon
      you gotta love a guitar song with a little girl in a bumble bee outfit in the video!!!
    • 4. Heart-shaped Box by Nirvana
      it may be just me, but "in utero" was better than "nevermind"...but "nevermind" got all the hype...sad...
    • 3. Forty Six And Two by Tool
      maynard is a bloody genius
    • 2. Shame by Stabbing Westward
      why aren't they all over the place? they rocked the 90s...
    • 1. Emotion Sickness by Silverchair
      so emmaculate...something so pure and rough and corrosive...and so beautiful

    intelligent music will massacre the brainless pop that is consuming our world. (did that sound too angry? sorry. i like meaningful music.)
    By: Rabbitweed
    • 10. High And Dry by Radiohead
      IMHO, the finest Radiohead track and undoubtly reflective...
    • 9. Dirty Boots by Sonic Youth
      opening track of the album "Goo" and the 90's lo-fi punk session. Thuston Moore's striking vocals made absolute distraction...
    • 8. On The Way by Dinosaur Jr
    • 7. Wake Up by Mad Season
      features Layne Staley & Mark Lanegan & Mike McCready and Martin Barrett... there's nothing much to say. all possessed...
    • 6. Nutshell by Alice In Chains
      sweepy and mature acoustic sound, delicate lyrics, penetrating vocals.
    • 5. Plush by Stone Temple Pilots
      Stone Temple Pilots's breakthrough hit. excellent example of the short era of grunge.
    • 4. Hunger Strike by Temple Of The Dog
      hit single of the unique tribute to andrew wood (lead singer of mother love bone). amazing collaboration of soundgarden & pearl jam. it's all spontaneous and privileged.
    • 3. Jesus Christ Pose by Soundgarden
      harsh and profound...
    • 2. Lounge Act by Nirvana
      great nirvana rarity. also in the same class with "d7" and "verse chorus verse". it's really hard to decide which one is the greater one...
    • 1. State Of Love And Trust by Pearl Jam
      1994 atlanta (concert) version is the best performance ever...
