    By: Ryan
    • 10. You Only Get What You Give by New Radicals
      i got thier album and it had some really good songs on it, im surprised they split after only one single. ive heard the singer is producing a lot of hits mind u.
    • 9. Masterplan by Oasis
      i had to pick at least one oasis song, there are so many classics.
    • 8. Fools Gold by Stone Roses
      im surprised not to see this more.
    • 7. Stay by Shakespears Sister
      just one of the most beautiful openings ever...than it gets scary.
    • 6. For An Angel by For An Angel
      the gretaest trance song of all time, countless remixes, voice overs etc have been done. if the lover remix was realesed i bet it would cruise to number 1. a genuine classic and the song that mad me the dancer that i am.
    • 5. Gangsters Paradise by Coolio
      what a song, just that tune in the background, breathtaking.
    • 4. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      classic and the most popular video and of all time.
    • 3. Nuthing Compares To You by Sinead O Conner
    • 2. Losing My Religion by Rem
      great lyrics
    • 1. Always With Me Always With You by Joe Satriani
      beautiful song by the greatest guitarist of all time.

    its good to see someDMX songs in the list. i was a bit surprised that oasis dont figure more in the lists. no surprise at nirvana being the most popular number one, the most influential and commercial rock song of all time. even ppl who hate rock and prefer to listen to craqp boyband shit like nirvana. something that probably has kurt cobain going mad up there in heaven. heres what i find the ,most surprising but......i havnt seen a single vote for sinead o conner - nothing compares to you. come on people.

    • 10. Kissed by a Rose by Seal
      The song that made me love music. Thought provoking lyrics with a very complimentary voice. An early 90s classic soft rock song.
    • 9. Fine Again by Seether
      Very recent song that is not getting enough respect because the band is new on the scene. These guys may be a one hit wonder, but this is an awesome song with lyrics that I relate to.
    • 8. In the End by Linkin Park
      Awesome combination of techno beats and guitar, along with rock lyrics with a hip hop flavor. Great transition song.
    • 7. Wonderwall by Oasis
      Great modern day love song with awesome acoustics and lyrics.
    • 6. Sweet Child O' mine by Guns N Roses
      Just a great song.
    • 5. Good Riddance by Green Day
      Smooth, soothing, yet powerful song.
    • 4. One by Metallica
      There isn't much you can say about this song. Just puts you in a zone.
    • 3. Machinehead by Bush
      Song that gets you hyped up while mellowing you out at the same time.
    • 2. Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      Red Hot Chili Peppers's best song, and one of the best of all time.
    • 1. Hurt by Johnny Cash (NIN cover)
      Nine Inch Nails's originally, but Cash made the melody smoother and sang it much better. Awesome lyrics. This song has it all.

    It's pretty much impossible to name a top 10 with so many great songs. I did my best.
