    By: Kyle Keith
    • 10. Head Like a Hole by Nine Inch Nails
      You cant get more 90's than this.
    • 9. The Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson
      Either ya love it or ya hate it, But everyone knows this song.
    • 8. Boddy Holly by Weezer
      They were on the Windows 95 CD and look how far computers have come. Put them together and you have a very important song.
    • 7. AEnima by Tool
      Very good song. Showed us a heavy alternative to rap-rock. Still around today in the fight for good music.
    • 6. Never Gonna Get It by En Vogue
      I Absolutely hate this song, but it is probably the closest thing that all these new all-girl moesha "bands" can go back to. Look where it is today, still on the top of the charts. I'm not saying its right, but thats how it is.
    • 5. Whats my Name? by Snoop Dawg
      Gangsta Rap at new heights.
    • 4. Self-Esteem by The Offspring
      Another good song from previous times.
    • 3. Blind by Korn
      Well, here is the beginning of the end, but it changed music for the rest of the 90's
    • 2. When I Come Around by Green Day
      This song is amazing. It shows just how great the 90's were.
    • 1. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      This isn't exactly my favorite Nirvana song, but it started a revolution of new music flooding in and started an era of good music for the Early-Mid 90's

    By: Erin
    • 10. Jump Around by House of Pain
      The only rap song on my list, since it will actually last through the next few decades. It's a song everyone remembers at school dances.
    • 9. Porcelain by Moby
      Yes, this counts - Play was released in 1999. Thank god for that terrible movie, The Beach, or else I would have never heard this funky, soothing song.
    • 8. 'Till I hear it from You by Gin Blossoms
      They weren't the best band, but this song is a classic from that great movie Empire Records (which produced one of the best soundtracks of the decade).
    • 7. Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead
      I can't help it... I love sad songs!
    • 6. Crash by Dave Matthews Band
      No one has any DMB on the lists! Where's the DMB love?!?
    • 5. Plowed by Sponge
      This gets me pumped up! I remember hearing it in Empire Records, but they never put it on the soundtrack...
    • 4. Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve
      I almost forgot this one! Beautiful, and by a very talented band. Too bad they are no more.
    • 3. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      Who doesn't love Pearl Jam? Very emotional, very real.
    • 2. 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
      There are many more pumpkins songs to love, but between Tonight Tonight, and Today, this one will be the most memorable.
    • 1. Buddy Holly by Weezer
      Not a popular choice, but I'll always remember dancing around to this, and watching the very cool vid on muchmusic!(no nirvana here!)

    This was one of the hardest things to do! I advise everyone to sit down and think of a top ten list - it's pretty satisfying and brings back memories.
