What are your top ten favorite songs from the 90s?

    By: Craig Sharp
    • 10. Surfacing by Slipknot
      This is a good anthem for teenagers. It is basically saying, "I don't care what you think. Leave me alone." That's a good message.
    • 9. How I Could Just Kill A Man by Cypress Hill
      Cypress Hill kicks ass.
    • 8. Five Minutes Alone by Pantera
      I like the guitar on this one.
    • 7. Know Your Enemy by Rage Against The Machine
      This is another of Rage's best songs. Their message of defiance is really powerful.
    • 6. Those Damned Blue-Collar Tweekers by Primus
      good song. Good lyrics.
    • 5. Revolution Is My Name by Pantera
      Pantera just rocks. There's no two ways around it. This is their best song.
    • 4. Freak on A Leash by Korn
      One of their best songs. It has a good bass line
    • 3. Sgt. Baker by Primus
      I really like everything about this song, not a flaw in it.
    • 2. The Power of Equality by Red Hot Chili Peppers
      This is a good song because of its funkiness and the lyrics.
    • 1. Take The Power Back by Rage Against The Macine
      This is their best song and the best song of the 90's. It is really funky, it has a good beat, and the guitar solo kicks ass. Good lyrics too.

    I probably have more songs I forgot about, but that is something of what I liked in the 90's.

    • 1. November Rain by Guns N' Roses
      Great song, great lyrics and great video. Guns N'Roses is my favorite band ever. They have many other great songs, but this one can be liked even by those who don't appreciate rock.

    There are way too many songs to name, many forgotten, but all great, great songs.

    • 10. Come as You Are by Nirvana
      Two songs on the same album? Yeha it was that good.
    • 9. that Elton john one about Princess Di by elton John
      It was a great tribute to a great woman. i even liked it.
    • 8. Killing in the Name Of by The Band formally known as Rage Against the Machin
      I gather this song to be about racism in the south. This is another song destined for greatness. It was well written and is something that all americans should still think about when it comes to race relations. In about 7 lines this song describes racism in the south during the time of the civil rights movement.
    • 7. Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chilli Peppers
      Off Blood Sugar Sex Magic once again just a great album that will be on the radio forever. A passionate song about a man trying to find love.
    • 6. Lightning Crahses by Live
      Once again a great album but this is a passionate song about a father whitnissing the miricle of birth. It was probly the most passionate song on the list.
    • 5. Enter Sandman by Mettalica
      Another great song from a great album i see a trend here. No matter how much they play this song it still rocks and will be on the radio forever.
    • 4. Higher by Creed
      This was released in Dec of 99 so it counts. Worst song on greatest album since Nevermind and Ten and the Black Album.
    • 3. I'll Make Love To You by Boyz to Men
      I hate Pop but this was a good Ballad.
    • 2. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      This song predicted the future. Its a profacy this was a song about school shooting 8 years before the first one happened.
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      Its no comparison. Nirvana made the 90's not suck! they kicked all the junk off the radio and made music art again.

    The best stuff came in the early 90's its all crap music in todays day and age. we really need a rebel someone who is going to make the 00's not suck like kurt Cobain did. Until that happens we are stuck with the backstreet boys and nsync

    • 10. The Real Slim Shady by Eminem
      Eminem is a great artist even with all the contriversy
    • 9. Walk This Way by Aerosmith
    • 8. Fly Away From Here by Aerosmith
      Aerosmith has been around a long time and had many hits they'll always be one of the best bands and my favorite especially now that they've been inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame
    • 7. Come As You Are by Nirvana
      nirvana is a revolutionary band who started many new things and we all respect them very much
    • 6. Wishing I Was There by Natilie Imbruglia
    • 5. Swim by Madonna
    • 4. Torn by Natilie Imbruglia

    • 3. Firestarter by Prodigy
      Great Song Okay Band
    • 2. Graduation Song (Friends Forever) by Vitamin C
      vitamin c is a great singer and this song is one that will be a legend
