      Beautiful masterpiece. Portrays the working class people as good as John Lennon's "Working Class Hero" Heart breaking truth to the bone.
    • 2. Wonderwall by Oasis
      Hands down one of the best pop songs ever written. Wistful guitar and vocals that suck you in as soon as you hear the first note. Liam Gallagers attitude and voice lend a beautiful tone to the song. Noel Gallager is one of the best songwriters of his generation.
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirt by Nirvana
      These kind of thing only happen once in a blue moon. Brilliant,Breathtaking masterpiece that will hold up forever....

    It's so hard to create a list of favorites. This list is just from the top of my head while i been sitting here. I know there is so much that i have not considered .... i am a penis...........
