    By: Cedric
    • 10. Bulls On Parade by Rage Against The Machine
      Oh yeah :) Very nice.
    • 9. In Bloom by Nirvana
      I know everyone usually mentions Teen Spirit...
    • 8. Lump by Presidents Of The United States Of America
      I completely forgot about this band up until a few months ago. They really rock a lot more than I remember.
    • 7. Zero by Smashing Pumpkins
      Quite a heavy tune. I found the vocals a tad bit annoying at first. It's grown on my over the past 8 years.
    • 6. Song 2 by Blur
      Whoooo hooo... need I say more?
    • 5. Dr. Greenthumb by Cypress Hill
      I liked this song when I first heard it. Like it even more now.
    • 4. The Distance by Cake
      So their singer isn't the greatest. The whole album is good though, very groovy.
    • 3. Mouth For War by Pantera
      Maybe a little too heavy to be on the list
    • 2. 46 And 2 by Tool
      I notice people overlooked Tool. One of the most talented bands out there.
    • 1. Song For The Dumped by Ben Folds Five
      Great song, not many 90's rock tunes with heavy piano.

    By: Shannon
    • 10. Zombie by The Cranberries
    • 9. Wonderwall by Oasis

    By: Kayla
    • 10. Every song on "Under the Tabel and Dreaming" by Dave Matthews Band
      Its hard to find a bad song by Dave!
    • 9. Why is Everybody Picking on Me? by Blood Hood Gang
      Its hard to resist such a silly song!
    • 8. My Name Is by Eminem
      If you think this is out of place then you need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture
    • 7. Hey Man Nice Shot by Filter
      Just a great song.
    • 6. Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson
      In the tradition of David Bowie, Marilyn Manson came to the stage, looking as if Halloween was just passed as an everyday Holiday to some people, with costumes and theatrics. And the music to match their larger than life performances Marilyn Manson became the voice of a generation that was searching for theirs.
    • 5. Shoots & Ladders by Korn
      And now for something completely different...That must have been the sign of the times for 90's music. Korn, using dark cords, lyrics, and yes bagpipes. Everyone must have felt the earth shift once they first heard Korn, because times they were changing.
    • 4. Aenama by Tool
      Words escape me when I think of this song. But I will say "One great big festering neon distraction, I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied. Learn to swim. Mom's gonna fix it all soon. Mom's comin' round to put it back the way it ought to be. Learn to swim."
    • 3. Down by 311
      Possibly my favorite 311 song.
    • 2. All Apologies by Nirvana "MTV Unpluged"
      This song just exsudes emotion. "Marry, Bury" Lifes eventualities, and the responsibility we take for all the worlds problems.
    • 1. What I Got by Sublime
      I just can't say enough about this song. Makes you happy, but then you think about the tragic death of vocalist Bradley Nowell and you are moved in another direction. The song speaks volumes as do all of Sublime's songs.

    The 90's were more diverce music wise then any other era. So many enovations and intergration of music generas Rap-Rock, Grunge, Alternative, Grunge-core, and so many more generas were born.
