    By: Adam
    • 10. Crash Into Me by Dave Matthews Band
      this isn't my favourite dmb song, but it is their most commercially successful, so i thought i might add it on the end here.
    • 9. People Of The Sun by Rage Against The Machine
      wihtou a doubt, rage agaisnt the machine were the most musically talented band of the ninties, and this is just one example of that.
    • 8. Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley
      i think thats how you spell it, anyways Jeff could have been like a new eric clapton or something, its just a shame.
    • 7. Midlife Crisis by Faith No More
      Another seriously under-rated band who are supposedly "one hit wonder," deamed by vh1. angel dust is one of the best albums, and it didnt even have their "1 hit," they are a wicked band and should get some more respect.
    • 6. No Excuses by Alice In Chains
      again, under-rated. this song is off of jar of flies, and it is wicked. Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell are possibl the best musical duo of the nineties.
    • 5. Hurt by Nine Inch Nails
      this ong has awesome lyrics, which is what i look for in songs. Trent Reznor is kool.
    • 4. Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead
      ummmm . . . this song is just a really well written song by thom yorke, who is one of the best writers of the nineties. Its kinda depressing, but i guess im into that stuff.
    • 3. Zero by Smashing Pumpkins
      the smashing pumpkins are a really under-rated band. This song is great, and i have loved basically everything that the smahing pumpkins have done.
    • 2. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      Great song, awesome lyrics, pearl jam rocks!
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      even if you hate nirvana, and dont think that they id anything good for rock, nevermind was still great, and this song was still the biggest, and your whining cant change that.

    the nineties were a great music decade
