    • 10. Basketcase by Green Day
    • 9. Just a Girl by No Doubt
    • 8. Doll Parts by Hole
    • 7. Stupid Girl by Garbage
    • 6. Bitter Sweet Symphony by The Verve

    • 3. Better Man by Pearl Jam
    • 2. Tonight Tonight by Smashing Pumpkins
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana

    By: Franklin
    • 10. Pollution by Limp Bizkit
      Cool song. Pretty much all to be said.
    • 9. My Own Summer by Deftones
      A good song by the Deftones. One of their best.
    • 8. P.O.D. by School of Hard Knocks
      People don't exactly like P.O.D. because they consider them a christian band. I like two songs and this happens to be one. I'm not an antichrist but I'm not a priest. So if you like good tunes you will like this.
    • 7. Perfect Drug by Nine Inch Nails
      This song is a very soothing song. I seem to think so. It is not very heavy but enjoyable.
    • 6. Sugar by System of a Down
      This a wierd song, but definatley worth a little listen too. It is a good example of modern day metal.
    • 5. Bradley by Coal Chamber
      Another cool song. Good Coal Chamber experience.
    • 4. Blind by KoRn
      Sweet ass song. It can be kinda depressing but its a cool song. Best KoRn song.
    • 3. Chewbacca by D.V.D.A.
      I have only experienced this song through Napster, because this band has no albumn. You are probably familiar of the show South Park. Well, to put it in a short way. This is the band of the 2 creators.
    • 2. Back to School by Deftones
      A very good Deftones song. One of my favorite songs of theirs. One of the most frequent videos on The Return of Rock.
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      In my opinion this is the best band ever, and of all of their heavier songs this is the best.

    If you like metal or any type of rock and roll that doesn't sound like that sh*t from the 80s then take a peek at this.
    By: Jason LaBove
    • 10. Days and Days by Concrete Blonde
      Great band...and great song
    • 9. Cake and Sodomy by Manson
      I hate red necks...what can I say.
    • 8. From the Cradle to enslave by Cradle of Filth
      Raw...just raw
    • 7. Clown by SwitchBladeSymphony
      The sexiest girls...just not as sexxy as Johnette Napolitano.
    • 6. Phantom Green by Agents of Oblivion
      Dax is the best
    • 5. Dead Skin Mask by Slayer
      Killer...dead skin
    • 4. Vampire by pET sHOP bOYS
      Killer classic Goth
    • 3. Jerk off by Tool
      Cause Maynard is God.
    • 2. Pork by Killing Fetish
      Hey, I hate cops too.
    • 1. Scream of the Butterfly by Acid Bath
      All time greatest emotional song...makes the feeling of hate intensify times ten.

    By: Robert
    • 10. Hold On by Wilson Phillips
      Who can forget them? They had great voices, but they seemed a little like a mismatched set (which was evident later).
    • 9. If You Go by Jon Secada
      This is the song that piqued my interest in Latin music (well, that and Gloria Estefan..Conga, anyone?)
    • 8. Strong Enough by Cher
      After the comeback she made, she deserves a spot here. This song says it all! "Strong Enough...to live without you." Empowering song after breaking up.
    • 7. Torn by Natalie Imbruglia
      Who hasn't identified with song?
    • 6. Show Me Love by Robyn
      "Show me love and what it's all about..." I heard that!
    • 5. I Will Be Your Friend by Amy Grant
      My best friend's and my "signature song." Reveals the true nature of friendship, that no matter what happens in life, friendship remains forever.
    • 4. Don't Speak by No Doubt
      Another favorite of mine. Ironic that this was the song that my ex-girlfriend and I were listening to the day before we broke up.
    • 3. Where Does My Heart Beat Now by Celine Dion
      One of the first songs of hers I ever heard by Celine, this is the song that hooked me to that voice of hers! She sure showed that she had the talent!
    • 2. That's What Love is For by Amy Grant
      Like #1, off of the Heart in Motion album, this one tied for first place. Poetic and slow, it is a very moving piece of music.
    • 1. Every Heartbeat by Amy Grant
      I just love this song! It is still one of my favorites!

    I know there are a lot more songs out there that I should have added and didn't!

    • 10. She Thinks My Tractors Sexy/ I Like it, I love It by Kenny Chesney/ Tim McGraw
      Works of sheer brilliance, "Over by the gate lordy here she comes, with a basket full of chicken and a big cold jug of sweet tea" .... "Spent $48 last night at the county fair, threw out my shoulder but I won her that Teddy Bear" Lyrical Poets, I'm telling ya.
    • 9. Out of my Head by Fastball
      Yup, I likey
    • 8. When You Say Nothing at All by Ronan Keating
      This song is beautiful... a single tear just rolled down my cheek. Quick, wipe it.
    • 7. Home For a Rest by Spirit of the West
      Pass me another beer, would ya.
    • 6. Regulators by Warren G & Nate Dogg
      Come on, you all know you like it.
    • 5. Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-a-lot
      "My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns hun"... 'Nuff said.
    • 4. Long Black Veil by Dave Matthews Band
      Alright, I know Dave didn't write it, but it is a damn good song (Can be substituted with Two Step by DMB if need be)
    • 3. The Drugs Don't Work by The Verve
      Honorable Mention to Bittersweet Symphony
    • 2. Disarm by Smashing Pumpkins
      Very good song.
    • 1. Crash Into Me by Dave Matthews Band
      Spectacular piece of workmanship. No Dave, please, Crash into Me.

    Okay, I actually wanted to put Dave Matthews in every spot because that man and his band are musical genius'. Plus he is dead sexy, and isn't that really what makes a good song, a hot singer, lol. And to all you freaks who think that Mambo #5, Spice Girls, Britney Spears, etc belong anywhere on these lists, why don't you go smoke some more crack.
    By: Eliezer Martinez
    • 10. All For Love by Bryan Adams, Sting and Rod Stewart
      This went head to head with Everything I Do (also by Adams),but when you put three excellent singers together you end up with an even greater song
    • 9. Enter The Sandman by Metallica
      My favorite from their best album.
    • 8. Even Flow by Pear Jam
      Jeremy was great, but I liked this one more because it sounded more powerful.
    • 7. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      It is a classic of the 90's the most famous Nirvana Song. Weird Al Made a great parody of this one.
    • 6. Time by Hootie And The Blowfish
      I Only Want To Be With You was a succes and had a video with Dan Marino, but I think this one was more song.
    • 5. I'll Do Anything For Love by Meatloaf
      The greatest comeback in rock history....until Santana
    • 4. Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice
      A rap song that went... #1? By a white singer? This song really was something.
    • 3. The Sign by Ace Of Base
      Six weeks #1 on Billboard charts. Do I need to say more?
    • 2. My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion
      This should have been #1, but too much air play can make you hate a good song.
    • 1. I Dont Want To Miss A Thing by Aerosmith
      What can I say I'm a romantic. This is one of the best songs by Aerosmith

    In my opinion this is a list of songs that represent the best of the 90's in diferent genres. I left out songs of bands like Green Day, Bush and other punk groups as well as techno and electronica mainly because they were not as mainstream or as popular like the other bands.
    By: Laura Watkins
    • 10. Just A Girl by No Doubt
      So-cal punk goes mainstream
    • 9. Sneaker Pimps by six underground
      I've loved this song, since forever. But i never knew the title.
    • 8. Oasis by Champagne Supernova
      Well, this is the revival of brit pop since the beatles, i think.
    • 7. Hit Me Baby.. One More Time by Brittney Spears
      Yea.. pop. bleh.
    • 6. Macerina by Los Del Rio
      DUH macerina? EVERYONE Knows it! so what the song is annoying? its a worldwide trend
    • 5. Fiona Apple by Criminal
      revives pissed off chick rock, after the angry alanis morisette and inbetween calm sarah mclaughlin
    • 4. Creep by Radiohead
      Wow this song is just awesome
    • 3. Born to Run by Bruce Springstein
      well its number three, thats all i can say
    • 2. Anarchy in the UK by Sex Pistols
      this starts punk music
    • 1. Lithium by Nirvana
      This MADE alternative music. Much better the smells like teen spirit which was made into pop

    well well thats all i have to say, u can e-mail me CleverNerd@hotmail.com The end
