      What i got, if you havent heard it, you havent lived
    • 9. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Every list that has the best 90s songs should have a nirvana song on it. Nirvana was the most influential band of the early 90s, and its music still thrives today.
    • 8. Champaign Supernova by Oasis
      oasis may hate americans, but this song rules

      early 90s song that kicks ass
    • 2. Wrong Way by Sublime
      best punk/ska/rock song of the mid 90s
    • 1. Under The Bridge by Chili Peppers
      beautiful song written by the peppers in Blood Sugar Sex Magik. My personal favorite song, everyone in the world has probably experienced this song

    it was hard to fit more nirvana in there, i was looking at other lists that had bands like korn and limp bizkit, and ricky martin, and fricking tom green. dude, this is the list right here.
