    By: Jay
    • 10. Fallen by Symphony X
      hard hitting power metal with excellent vocals
    • 9. Sick of You by GWAR
      catchy punk song by this hilarious band
    • 8. Roll the Bones by Rush
    • 7. How I Could Just Kill A Man by RATM
      The only RATM song I like
    • 6. You Are Not Alone by Michael Jackson
      song sucks ass, but it's funny as hell

      violent and hardcore, what the world needs more of

    • 2. Jesus Christ Pose by Soundgarden
      nice guitar and chris cornel's best singing ever
    • 1. Heaven Beside You by Alice In Chains
      sounds like early grunge mixed with classic 60's rock

    • 10. Vogue/Express Yourself by Madonna
      Madonna is just a living legend. Two of her best songs.
    • 9. Too Funky by George Michael
      Just a fabbo song. Wild energy.
    • 8. Monkey Wrench by Foo Fighters
      Loved it's energy at the time. Reminds me of a great time in my life.
    • 7. Tomorrow by Silverchair
      I knew every drumbeat and performed it for my family (airdrums of course) on Xmas day.
    • 6. Step by Step by NKOTB
      Ok, dagsville I know, but I love it's dagginess even now.
    • 5. Carly's Song by Enigma
      Only because the cd single kept me company one night on repeat while I repeatedly threw my guts up.
    • 4. Closer by Nine Inch Nails
      Great sound. I was never really into swearing in songs, thought it was a bit try-hard, but it seemed to fit here.
    • 3. Wherever I May Roam by Metallica
      Always playing in my walkman on the bus to school. Just has grunt. I love it.
    • 2. Spoonman by Soundgarden
      There was nothing like this on the radio at the time.
    • 1. Sunday Morning by No Doubt
      A great song that always makes me happy and gets me bopping.

    Ok, so I was a teenager in the 90's, so perhaps my choices aren't as deep as others. This is the music I remember liking at the time, I have since come to like a lot of songs I wasn't exposed to during this period, so if you asked me to compile a list of great songs released in the 90's, it might be vastly different.
