    • 8. Nirvana by Lithium
    • 7. Emotion Sickness by Silverchair
    • 6. Date Rape by Sublime

    • 2. Closer by Nine Inch Nails
    • 1. Paranoid Android by Radiohead
      Not only the best song of the 90's but the best song ever.

    It's so hard to choose my top ten because there are so many other songs that I want to include, but as far as the nineties was concerned the absolute best band to come out of it wasn't Nirvana, like so many people want you to believe. They were an excellent band and one of the best of the decade, but the best one to come out of the nineties is without a doubt Radiohead. Until a band comes out with a tune that's as mind blowing as Paranoid Android, they will forever be, at least in my heart, the greatest band to grace this earth.

    • 10. Tomorrow by Sliverchair
      They wrote this song when they were 15...that deserves some credit.
    • 9. Even Flow by Pearl Jam
      I told you before, Pearl Jam is the best.
    • 8. Lightning Crashes by Live
      Same level as Glycerine in my book.
    • 7. Basket Case by Green Day
      Dookie is a great CD, Basket Case is a great song.
    • 6. Mr Jones by Counting Crows
      Good tune.
    • 5. Glycerine by Bush
      This song chills me out.
    • 4. Plush by Stone Temple Pilots
      Stone Temple Pilots...good stuff, too bad ya couldn't stop hittin the crack pipe.
    • 3. Enter Sandman by Metallica
      How can you people leave out Metallica? I could fill a top 10 metallica list of the 90's that is better than most of these other lists you people are putting together.
    • 2. Alive by Pearl Jam
      Pearl Jam is the best alternative band of all time - and dont argue your wrong.
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      This song is out of control.

    If have any ear for music you would realize that Pearl Jam and Metallica are the best two bands from the 90's. Nirvana is close though.
