    By: Ierardi
    • 10. Jump Around by House Of Pain
      "I came to get Down, I came to get Down, So get off your seat and Jump around!" f*cking love this song! always dance to it at every party! and usually hurt my self...heh...good times...
    • 9. Ends by Everlast
      "Ends, some people will rob their mother for the ends, rats snitch on one another for the ends, sometimes kids get murdered for the ends, so before we go any further I want my ends..." it's up there, incidently, lead singer of House Of Pain was the Lead singer of Everlast too! Good Rapper...Yo! (sigh, i'm Whitey McWhiteson)
    • 8. Gangsta's Paradise by Coolio (with that...dude...)
      "We been Spendin most our lives livin in a Gangsta's Paradice..." oh man...one of the best Rap song in my opinion, i remember "Dangerous Minds"...now all I have to do is watch Boston Public! Or go to Boston Public! ...don't kill me Boston...I live next door to you, I mean in Alaska...
    • 7. What I Got by Sublime
      "We been Spendin most our lives livin in a Gangsta's Paradice..." oh man...one of the best Rap song in my opinion, i remember "Dangerous Minds"...now all I have to do is watch Boston Public! Or go to Boston Public! ...don't kill me Boston...I live next door to you, I mean in Alaska...
    • 6. Spiders by System of a Down
      "The spiders all in tune, The evening of the moon, Dreams are made winding through my head..." one of System's best songs, best of the 90's, in my opinion, better than Sugar, but that's just me...
    • 5. Come as you are by Nirvana
      "Come as you are, as you were, as I want you to be..." not their best...but the one I´┐Żll always remember Kurt by...I miss you man...
    • 4. Iris by Goo Goo Dolls
      "And I don't want the world to see me, cause I don't think that they'd understand, when every thing's made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am..." i've always wanted to make out...even f*ck a girl to this song...well...I can dream right?
    • 3. Engel by Rammstine
      "Erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn, Kann man uns am Himmel sehn, Wir haben, Angst und sind allein, Gott weiss ich will kein Engel sein" look it up, i dun know what it exactly means, but oh man, it's one of The best Rammstine Songs of the 90's, better than Du Hast, though Du Hast is a Good Song
    • 2. Wake Up by Rage Against The Machine
      "...Took the power to the have-nots, then came the shot... How long? Not long, 'cause what you reap is what you sow." oh man...De La Rocha needs to come back with more, "March of Death" was awesome, but WE NEED MORE ROCHA!!!
    • 1. Aenema by Tool
      "Some say the end is near. Some say we'll see Armageddon soon. I certainly hope we will. I sure could use a vacation from this bullsh*t three ring circus sideshow of Freaks here in this hopeless f*cking hole we call LA. The only way to fix it is to flush it all away. Any f*cking time. Any f*cking day. Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay...I wanna see it all come down. Suck it down. Flush it down." oh man...I love LA...but it's all too true...and I love Tool more...other superbs by Tool & A perfect Circle, #.5:Discustipated #0:Three Libras (A perfect Circle) #-1:Third-Eye (oh man...best song ever any where!) look for Tools new stuff in 2005!

    ok...so i'm Ierardi...and these may not be the BEST songs from the 90's, but they be my favorite...and only one per band!...cuuuuz i have to set a sanderd for my self...cuuuz i'm insain...Bah!(void, i may, or may not give any one $10 for the descloser of the dude that sang the chorus of Gangster's Paradise) on a serious note, i remeber those that i can remeber right now, that were very dear to Rock and Roll and would prolly be with us today...and would deffenatly still be rocking who ended their lives tragiclly, but are still with us through the music...: Brad Nowell, 1968-1996 (Sublime) Freddie Mercury, 1946-1991 (Queen) Kurt Corbain, 1967-1994 (Nervana) Rock on guys...see you on the otherside...
