      Everyone knows this song, but just can't put a name or face to it. Well it never gets old and Pete is one of the greatest light rock artist of the age.

      Again another band that is often overlooked but this song is just explosive - this song can convert anyone to a rock fan.

      Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's impossible to get sick of this song, and its awesome lyrics and tune.
    • 7. Always Be My Baby by Mariah Carey
      Classic song by the greatest pop diva of the nineties, so much sentimental value to this song.
    • 6. Down by 311
      311 is a band that is often overlooked but whose style in contagious...almost infectious.
    • 5. When I Come Around by Green Day
      A classic band with #1 hits in double figures. Too much can be said about Green Day for words.
    • 4. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      A great, but over-rated song -- stands out but got lost under the new sounds of post-grunge.
    • 3. Ironic by Alanis Morissette
      Alanis took over the alternative world with "Jagged Little Pill" and its unique lyrics and bold drum beats. Her songs were instantly famous.
    • 2. Time by Hootie & the Blowfish
      All of Hootie's songs form "Cracker Rear View" should be on here; one of the greatest albums ever.
