      Breakthrough hit, new music, new band, if they keep it up, they'll be great
    • 9. Make 'Em Say UGh! by Master P
      P gets you crunked up with this fast paced rap tune, say ughhhhhh!
    • 8. Bow Down by Ice Cube and Westside Connection
      Cube at his best, when you hear it live you'll know what i'm talking about
    • 7. Break Stuff by Limp Bizkit
      Original band or not, this song represents the anger of today's society
    • 6. Gettin Jiggy Wit It by Will Smith

    • 5. Killing In The Name Of by Rage Against The Machine
      Powerful and demanding, defining rage.
    • 4. Keep Their Heads Ringin' by Dr. Dre
      The Friday soundtrack is one everyone should buy, it's a classic.
    • 3. B**** Please by Snoop Dogg
      Probably his best work with NO LIMIT, Xzibit n' Nate Dogg perfect it.

    • 10. red hot chilli peppers by my friends
      a great acoustic guitar riff, makes you wanna cry right from the start and when it ends you have to skip it back- and it'll stay in your head till you want it to leave.
    • 9. R.E.M by man on the moon
      gotta put an REM song in here. this one is cool because it's just a great melody and michael stypes voice is really great. everyone knows this song and for good reason.
    • 8. soundgarden by spoon man
      needless to say this is a really great song- brings back loads of memories not all happy but still :)what a voice!!!
    • 7. screaming trees by dying days
      -from one of the best albums i ever got to hear (dust). how come this band was never huge- i'll never understand but in a strange way i'm kinda glad. it's a song about the death of seattle after the kurt and grunge thing.
    • 6. pearl jam by animal
      hard enough to choose a single pearl jam track but this one just wants to make me jump around and the riff is about as good as a riff can get.
    • 5. lemonheads by my drug buddy
      ...it's about friendship and not drugs. this guy has such a stunning voice and this song is an acoustic track complete with stunning chord changes, vocals, and lyrics- thank god he's doing a comeback
    • 4. feel the pain by dinosaur jr
      from the hundreds of awesome songs j mascis has written i chose this one because the video was really cool and the lyric 'i feel the pain of everyone, then i feel nothing' says a lot about how i felt at the time.
    • 3. 1979 by smashing pumpkins
      it's kinda happy in a way but at the same time just about the most depressing song ever written somehow plus it came with the best video ever made.
    • 2. rock music by the pixies
      just about the most intense 2 minutes of music you can experience. wailing guitars, screaming, drums- too cool
    • 1. smells like teen spirit by nirvana
      this song changed my life!! nirvana and kurt were the coolest.

    i decided to try and pick only one song from each band cos otherwise it would be pretty boring to read. i'd also like to point out that i'm bored as hell :)
