      this is 2 songs,but they count as 1 because they are both awesome songs,and they are part one and two of the greatest duel songs ever
    • 7. fuel by metallica

    • 1. smells like teen spirit by nirvana
      this was the best song of the 90's,and one of the most best songs ever.

    metallica is apparently my favorite band, but they played a huge role in the music we listen today. and also,for all those people who put n sync and backstreet and all that crap, it is the top ten of the 90's, not the crappiest of 1999. yall need to go farther back,like anything before 1999,there are 9 other years of way better music.
