    By: Jared Christenson
    • 10. The Verve Pipe by Bittersweet Symphony
      I tried to avoid repeating bands on this list but this song just had to be included
    • 9. Radiohead by Exit Music
      Should actually be higher on the list. yorke and co. are absolutely brilliant
    • 8. Dave Matthews Band by What Would You Say
      Sure crash is a good song but their real strength lies in their ability to jam and this song showcases that as well as any
    • 7. Long December by Counting Crows
      Cant get enough of the crows melancholy lyrics. definitely one of the most talented bands of the 90's
    • 6. Heaven Is So Far Away by The Offspring
      The offsprings one flash of brilliance in a career of mediocrity
    • 5. Santeria by Sublime
      No one could lay down a melody quite like bradley could and santeria is one of his best. its a shame that the drug culture he so often sang about ended up taking his life
    • 4. Say It Ain't So by Weezer
      While anything off the blue album deserves to be on this list I chose this song in particular because in my opinion its the most deserving of the bunch
    • 3. Semi Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind
      Ridiculously catchy but not annoying. instantly brings back memories of a happier time when it was played on the radio nonstop
    • 2. 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
      I've never met anyone who doesn't make some sort of positive comment when they hear this song. and why shouldn't they its amazing
    • 1. Freshmen by The Verve Pipe
      Probably one of the saddest songs ever written. delightfully depressing

    By: Sebastian

    • 1. Nutshell by Alice In Chains
      the performance on MTV unplugged should show enough, this song is very underated and is awesome

    By: Scott
    • 10. Everlong by Foo Fighters
      Unfortunatly, Nirvana was left off me list. Though they may have been a breath of fresh air, Nirvana's biggest contribution the music world would ultimately be the blossoming of its drummer into a rock god.
    • 9. What I Got by Sublime
      f**k it, Fight it, this song will outlive us all
    • 8. One by Metallica
      Better than anything else they made in the entire decade. Better than the entire Black album
    • 7. Interstate Love Song by Stone Temple Pilots
      Now Stone Temple Pilots was a to the 90s what the Doors were to the 60s, a great disappointment.
    • 6. Ants Marching by Dave Matthews Band
      Turned EVERYBODY into a Dave Matthews fan.
    • 5. 1979 by The Smashing Pumpkins
      This song just crept into everybodys consciousness, before you knew everybody secretly loved it...and it got alot of airplay without overstaying its welcome.
    • 4. Sabotage by The Beastie Boys
      This song should be number one...you know I'm right.
    • 3. In The Meantime by Spacehog
      They may be considered a one hit wonder, but I met a guy once that was really into Spacehog. He had both their albums and would play them constantly. This guy had pretty good taste, he also liked OUR LADY PEACE
    • 2. When I Come Around by Green Day
      This was a great late summersong, and it wasn't as overplayed as the other singles of this album. I remember listening to this CD alot that summer.
    • 1. Creep by Radiohead
      Man, this song is so cool.
