    By: Joshep
    • 10. Smashing Pumpkins by Tonigth, Tonigth
      excleente cancion una de las mejores.
    • 9. Wonderwall by Oasis
      aunque no se lo merecen a la gente le gusto la cancion, realmente no me parecen buenos musicos.
    • 8. Ray of Ligth by Madonna
      el renacimiento de la diva del pop, mucho mas electronica y menos pop, Quien no bail� con esta canci�n????
    • 7. Closer by Nine Inch Nails
      la opera prima de este grupo, el mejor de los noventa Trent Reznor
    • 6. Lenny Kravitz by Fly Away
      aunque prefiero la canci�n Believe, esta cal� mucho mas entre el gusto comercial
    • 5. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      mi grupo preferido, excelente cancion
    • 4. Creep by Radiohead
      de esas canciones que escuchas y retumban en tu cabeza
    • 3. November Rain by Guns 'n Roses
      Historica, el solo de piano con la guitarra de Slash es increible
    • 2. Smell Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      El Himno de los alienados
    • 1. Unforgiven by Metallica
      es el unico single que se ha mantenido desde 1991 en las listas de popularidad por casi 10 a�os

    me gustaria poner, Teardrop - Massive Attack, Enjoy The Silence Depeche Mode, y canciones como One de U2 o Nothing Compares 2 U de Sinead O' Connor pero estan en los noventa y muchas personas piensan que son de los 80's

    • 10. Enter Sandman by Metallica
      Metallica rocks!!! I know it doesn't belong at #10, but it's time to give the other artists a chance to shine!
    • 9. When You Come Around by Green Day
      Green Day just pumps you up with all of their songs...they are all so lively!
    • 8. Iris by Goo Goo Dolls
      This song just touches you....and it's a beautiful song
    • 7. Loser by 3 Doors Down
      whether I chose "loser" or "kryptonite" they both are awesome and prove that 3 doors down is an awesome band themselves
    • 6. Last Resort by Papa Roach
      Basically this song just rocks!!!!!
    • 5. Under The Bridge by Red Hot Chilli Peppers
      I love all the Red Hot Chilli Peppers songs and I just happened to like this one a little bit more!!
    • 4. I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing by Aerosmith
      This song is for all of my family....and I don't think I've heard a more touching family song! Leave it to Aerosmith to right the best songs...since they are one of the best bands in the world!!
    • 3. Losing My Religion by R.e.m.
      I don't know one person that didn't love "losing my religion"!!!
    • 2. Possum Kingdom by The Toadies
      I think this song should have tied for #1...but since you can't do that it's #2. "possum kingdom" is the best song and it was overlooked by the public...so if you get a chance download it cuz it's the coolest song ever!!!!
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Nirvana is my personal favorite band ever!!!! whether I picked "smells like teen spirit" or "come as you are" or any of their other awesome songs....I just feel that they personally are #1!!!! Kurt Cobain was a genious and a god!!!!!
