    By: Launa
    • 10. White Room by Alisha's Attic
      Off the Alisha Rules the world album. The best song on the album, in my opion.
    • 9. The Drugs Don't Work by The Verve
      I love this song, i love the verve. Enough said.
    • 8. Slow Like Honey by Fiona Apple
      The first song I heard by her, its magical.
    • 7. Disco 2000 by Pulp
      Its pulp, need i say anymore?
    • 6. Virtual Insanity by Jamiroquia
      Everytime this comes on my foot starts tapping, then my head goes, and before i know it i'm in the middle of the dance floor john travolta style. I hate dancing so anything that can make me dance surly deserves number 6?
    • 5. Block Rockin Beats by Chemical Brothers
      In the 90's the chemical brothers could do know wrong!
    • 4. Female Of The Species by Space
      I defy anyone not to like this song. Its great.
    • 3. Elizabeth On The Bathroom by Eels
      I love the eels. The rythmic beat, melodic chilled guitars, and his scrachy voice over the top its amazing. They just keep getting better!
    • 2. El Scorchio by Weezer
      I once walked through my home town (a bit tipsy) singing this at the top of my voice, it's been in my top 10 ever since! Its off the pinkerton album, the whole album is ace!!!!
    • 1. Stero by Pavement
      This song isnt the best pavement song. I don't think i could pick a single great pavement song, it depends what your listening to. But this is the first song I heard by Pavement, the opening line is 'pigs tend to wiggle when they walk' and my best friend brought me the ablum just cause. So i think it deservedly gets a place at number 1!

    • 10. When You Say Nothing At All by Ronan Keating
      It was when he reinvented himself as solo artist getting rid of Boyzone and the 1990's.And then the 2000's dawned with Ronans new looks and short hair.
    • 9. All I Wana Do by Sheryl Crow
      Sheryl Crow was a true fit brid and gret perfomer of that time and I use to like her and her songs.
    • 8. My Heart Will Go On by Celino Dion
      Titanic was a good film and I loved this song what ballad this was.
    • 7. Changes by 2pac
      Pac got stuck in between the eastocast/westcoast rivalry and was gunned on Friday the 13th of September but this song reminds you of the legend.
    • 6. Nothing Compares by Sinnead O'connor
      This song reminds of my birth because I can remember hearing this on a tv advert about 10 years ago and it was out the year I was born 1990.
    • 5. Wonderwall by Oasis
      This was there best ever song from there mid 90's heyday when the band were on top and were the best rock band of that time with megahits.
    • 4. I'll Be Missing You by Puff Daddy
      It was for the notorious B.I.G the best eascoast hip hopper of the 90's easily and Puffy remade stings early 80's classic and made this a masterpiece.
    • 3. Ordinary World by Duran Duran
      Despite dominating the 1980's they were still good during in the 1990's and are still going now.
    • 2. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Nirvana were a Grunge 90's mega group and it was awful that Kurt killed himself after bringing Grunge from the ashes.
    • 1. Angels by Robbie Williams
      I loved this song it was a truly inspiring pop hit and made me feel at the time things they had never felt before.

    The 90's was a swale decade and was ended with all the bands dying. Robbie who was rthe 1990's supergroup take that has found big sucess in the new decade and perfoemd live at Knebworth and that is for the rock icons and he is one.

    • 7. Everything by Vertical Horizon
      No wonder it was in the run with All-Star for #1 song at one time.
    • 6. Amish Paradise by "Weird Al" Yankovic
      Hilarious, much better than the original. Take that Coolio!
    • 5. Rockafeller Skank by Fatboy Slim

    • 10. California Uber Alles by The Disposable Heroes Of Hiphopracy
      The best cover of all time. Dead Kennedys meets ice cube. What a rush -"...grab the mic n' go BOOM!"
    • 9. Testify by Rage Against The Machine
      A very good political song. Rock and politics are practically synonymous and this is a revolution in a beat.
    • 8. Santeria by Sublime
      What a beatifully understated song. The good reggae vibes just spill out of the speakers. See also "The General" by Dispatch.
    • 7. Heart-Shaped Box by Nirvana
      Well, the video is really cool. The lyrics are typical deathly depressed Cobain stuff. Touche.
    • 6. Personal Jesus by Depeche Mode
      This is what it would sound like if the cantina band from Star Wars covered John Lee Hooker. Good show indeed. David Gahan rocks.
    • 5. Fell On Black Days by Soundgarden
      Gotta love the drop-D tuning. Maximum heaviosity! Plus, Chris Cornell is a very good vocalist.
    • 4. Block Rockin' Beats by Chemical Brothers
      This is like, the archetype for all electronic music made since. The Brothers really knew their shit.
    • 3. Pyramid Song by Radiohead
      Very creepy, chilling little number. The video is rather good. Thom Yorke's paranoia has never been greater.
    • 2. Wish by Nine Inch Nails
      This represents teenage angst much better than "Teen Spirit" ever did. "Don't think youre having all the fun - you knw me, I HATE EVERYONE!" Very heartfelt.
    • 1. Stereo by Pavement
      Very solid little kiss-off song - "HEY! LOOK AT ME NOW! I'M ON YOUR STEREO!" I've always thought it was quite good.

    By: Fat Albert
