      This song f**king rocks
    • 7. Anna's Song by Sliverchair
      The kinds were what 13 or 15 when Frog Stomp came out? So what if they mimiced Nirvana. Anyone who had that sound mimiced them for some reason. As did Pearl Jam in everyones little minds... NEWS FLASH! Mother Love Bone was signed first! Nirvana would have been the Clones!
    • 6. Mr. Jones by Counting Crows
      They are a great band. They sound good both live and in the studio. Electric as well as accoustic.
    • 5. Paranoid Android by Radiohead
      Radiohead is the best band in the world. They perfected Rock. Then said f**k off and did something else and were even better.
    • 4. No Rain by Blind Melon
      Shannon and Company knew what they were doing.
    • 3. Under The Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      Its a touching song. You have to love it.
    • 2. November Rain by Guns N' Roses
      Axl can hit notes that were not ment to be hit by mankind.
    • 1. Hail Hail by Pearl Jam
      I listened to No Code for 3 straight weeks. Everytime this song came on i screamed AH f**k YEAH!

    Nirvana was good yes. I liked them. But you people make Kurt Cobain out to be a god. Which is why he shot himself in the first place. Smells Like Teen spirt was probally one of their worst songs. What it did for music was cool yeah. But labels had already begun snatching up bands that had that sound.
