What are your top ten favorite songs from the 90s?
- 10. Smells like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
I can't really leave this off. After all, the 90s didn't really start until this song was released, but I've never been a Nirvana fan, sad to say.
- 9. Welcome to Paradise by Green Day
Oh so underrated compared to their other stuff, but I love this thing
- 8. Santa Monica by Everclear
Haunting like my number one. It's almost too depressing to listen to.
- 7. Unforgiven by Metallica
In my opinion, better than Enter Sandman. Great transition, what a song.
- 6. Californication by Red Hot Chilli Peppers
All the good and bad of California, but also all of America. Chilli Peppers grown up, good stuff.
- 5. When I Come Around by Green Day
I like mellow stuff, although Green Day does not have a bad song. And this is the best, other then that overplayed Good Riddance
- 4. 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
Heavy on the Base, and I personally find it their best song.
- 3. Outta My Head by Fastball
Oh so underrated and forgotten. So relaxing.
- 2. November Rain by Guns and Roses
Pretty long, and at some points a little too long for just a song, but that video alone makes up for it, and the solos...That second solo is possibly the most flawless, perfect solo ever crafted, a perfect fit for the somber and evil background and hellish vocals from Axle.
- 1. Mary Jane's Last Dance by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Haunting lyrics, just all around an incredible song
That's a lot harder than you'd think at first.
- 10. Buddy Holly by Weezer

Scott Stapp's lyrics to the first Creed album makes it one of the greats. Written before the band met, in a one room apartment with no furniture, Stapp has to confront his beliefs to his failures in life.

THe story of any heartbreak. Denial is one of the first symptoms. You can't leave me, you were meant for me and I was meant for you.

The deep drum beats with an eerie guitar tune with Alanis's voice all fit together.

The riffs, the feeling of utter self-destruction, the bass, drums, and guitar all come together. By far one of the greats.
Huge Nirvana fan, but I made myself have a different band for every song to give a good perspective on the whole 90's rock scene. I like Pearl Jam, but no one song can stick out.
