    By: Gene
    • 10. Enter Sandman by Metallica
      Probably metallica's greatest song. atleast my favorite. the opening is long, but completely rocked-out..A must listen for all the metal-heads
    • 9. Wonderwall by Oasis
      Wow! what a beatles-sounding song! a great song! oasis were supposed to be the next beatles so again...What the hell happened?
    • 8. November Rain by Guns N Roses
      The ultimate rock ballad with great guitar solos from slash
    • 7. You Ougtta Know by Alanis Morrisette
      Catchy tune, and alanis's voice has never been more painful..In a good way
    • 6. Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden
      Chris cornell's voice is absolutley awesome
    • 5. Dont Speak by No Doubt
      Ultimate break up anthem..Need I say more?
    • 4. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      The opening guitar rift is absolutley magical. the guitar rift alone brings you through the powerful ride of the song
    • 3. Bullet With Butterfly Wings by Smashing Pumpkins
      Well, after grunge slowly started losing momentum after pearl jam had stopped making good albums (their only good ones were ten and vs.) and the death of kurt cobain had broken up the best band of the 90's, nirvana, the smashing pumpkins came along and revived the trend. this is a great song and a great example of how billy corgan's vocal cords work. at one point he whispers, and at another point he screams. great song to inspire you.
    • 2. Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana
      Beautifully depressing and dark...A big step up from nirvana's "nevermind" days into a more mature, deep band
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Greatest song created in the 90's...I am not gonna argue with anyone because everybody has heard this song whether you like to admit or not, and you know that you couldnt help but sing a long. a song for the ages

    • 3. To Be With You by Mr. Big
    • 2. I'll Be by Edwin McCain

      The most romantic song ever. Even if you are not a romantic person.
