    • 10. Good Morning Captain by Slint
      Many people were first acquainted with the band because of this tracks appearance on the Kids soundtrack.
    • 9. Seven by Sunny Day Real Estate
    • 8. Just a Girl by No Doubt
      One of the few bands from the 90s that seems just as popular today.
    • 7. Cherub Rock by Smashing Pumpkins
      Billy Corrigan + Butch Vig = inspired CD!
    • 6. Vow by Garbage
      In 1995 the future of music seemed to be in the hands of Shirley Manson, Butch Vig, and the rest of the Garbage...
    • 5. Carnival by Natalie Merchant
    • 4. Underground by Ben Folds Five
      Along with Suddenly, Tammy! I was kind of hoping that the piano rock trio lasted.
    • 3. Drain You by Nirvana
      Sure, Teen Spirit is *the* track, but this one is just as catchy and showcases the genius that was Kurt Cobain.
    • 2. God by Tori Amos
      She has many classics, but this is the one that initially stood out as the early essence of Tori's evolution from Little Earthquakes
    • 1. What I Got by Sublime

    Favorites change every few weeks or so. There are way too many to mention!! I feel like I'm omitting Pavement, Dar Williams, Elastica, Luscious Jackson, The Beatie Boys, Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Cowboy Junkies, Cocteau Twins, TMBG, and many, many others...

    • 6. Barbie Girl by Aqua
      This is satire at it's greatest
    • 5. Thank You by Alanis Morissette
      This was a very inspirational song and the video was dynamic
    • 4. Shutterbug by Veruca Salt
      the style is very innovative and the lyrics are great
    • 3. Bitch by Meredith Brooks
      Both men and women can relate to this because we all wear different masks throughout the day
    • 2. Breakfast At Tiffany's by Deep Blue Something
      You have to admit, you love this song
