    By: Liv
    • 10. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Hated the film clip when I first saw it... actually think I still do. but fantastic song to play to a live crowd.
    • 9. Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson
      Early 90's were only the beginning for this man...
    • 8. Loosing My Religion by Rem
    • 7. Dont Speak by No Doubt
      Break up songs that are out when u are in that status are always going to stick in your head....Cause they helped you
    • 6. Run Away Train by Soul Asylum
      No one can watch this film clip without getting a tear in the eye.
    • 5. Everclear by Santa Monica
      No real depth to this song, but still a classic
    • 4. Wounderwall by Oasis
      Very worthy of this placing
    • 3. November Rain by Guns And Roses
      Yeah another love song, but how can you knock it, even the toughest guys appreciate this song.
    • 2. One by Metallica
      Fantasic piece of music, great to listen to even better to play.
    • 1. Always by Bon Jovi
      Yes a typical love song comes and takes the win!! but that intro drum beat who doesnt get shivers down the spine....

    The 90's music had something about it... its seems to me that these days music doesnt have that big an impact on us as what these songs did back in that day. sometimes the odd one will pop up and it will be remembered, but what really is the style of music for decade 2000....Britney spears? or american idol? hmmm shame

    • 9. Beastie Boys by Sabotage
      not a big fan of the Beasties...this song kicks ass though!
    • 8. You Oughta know by Alanis Morrisette
      couldn't really pick between 'Ironic' and this one...eventually piked this one because it was the first time we were ever REALLY introduced to Alanis.
    • 7. Bitter Sweet Symphony by the Verve
      one of the coolest video's of the 90's...so friggin cool!
    • 6. Song 2 by Blur
      Woo Hoo!!!! this song is about absolutely nothing! don't give me any shit either, cuz it's not about anything you're dumb if you think it is! absolutely nothing...and it's still awsome!
    • 5. Free as a Bird by John Lennon w/ the Beatles
      before you shake your head like a dink...remember this song WAS released in about 94/95...technically a 90's song! also, technically a John Lennon song only considered a solely Beatles song by twats who know nothing about music!
    • 4. Radiohead by Paranoid Android
      complex, beautifull...if you need anymore...please consult record!
    • 3. Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      F@#$ you...that's why!!
    • 2. Wonder Wall by Oasis
      most perfect song ever written!
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      cuz...it defined our generation...who the hell picked NELLY over this one...that doesn't even count as the 90's...sheesh!! lemme guess...you spent aprox. 10 minutes in the 90's right?

    lot's o' songs that could've made the list...these songs i feel identify best with the decade though. on a side note "lovin is what i got" and pretty much everything else by sublime kills!!!

    • 7. I Do Cherish You by 98 Degrees
