    Its really hard to pick the 10 best songs of the decade and even harder to put them in order. If people think that the best songs of the decade came out during 1998-99, thats fine by me but please stop putting in songs from 2000

      An absolute classic.. this track set the new generation of hip-hop

    • 2. Dear Mama by 2pac
      I remember when this song came out, 2pac was in jail and it was the first time somebody got a number 1 hit while incarcerated.. innocent though! But it showed the world that 2pac had an opposite side
    • 1. I Aint Mad At Cha by 2pac
      There are a lot of people who dont understand the song, mainly because of the genius way that 2pac wrote his lyrics.. but its the best song ever, great beat and a heart-breaking video

    The songs 10 to 3 are not really in the right order, they were all great

    • 10. 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
      Simply for the memories... things were simpler then. My 1979 was 1996.
    • 9. Hey Man Nice Shot by Filter
      Drunk, high , and crazy. My late teens are heard in this song.
    • 8. Can't Touch This by MC Hammer
      I chose this song simply because it brings back so many fond memories. Hey, kids are dumb and I was no different.
    • 7. Gonna Make You Sweat by C+C Music Factory
      I know I know... cheesy early 90's pop, but this song was great for its time. Too bad my favorite TV Show The Simpsons turned it into a gay anthem. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
    • 6. Losing My Religion by REM
      Any Top 10 song list for the 90's must include REM. Great tune.
    • 5. Ahead By A Century by The Tragically Hip
      Brings back so many memories.... feels like yesterday.
    • 4. Window Licker by Aphex Twin
      Crazy tune, crazy video. I love this.
    • 3. 24 by Red House Painters
      Again, the video sold me and the song reflected my soul. "And were not loaded stadiums or ballparks, kid on the swingset or the blacktop"
    • 2. Paranoid Android by Radiohead
      The video sold me. And the song inspired me. This album came out in one of the worst years of my life - and because of it, OK COMPUTER will forever be etched in my brain.
    • 1. Closer by Nine Inch Nails
      This song changed me. I remember hearing it at a nightclub in 1994 and was immediately put into a trance. There's something odd and scary about this tune. Its the only song that I can listen to over and over again. #1 song for the 1990's.

    Bjork, Nirvana, Blind Melon, oh yes.. SOUNDGARDEN!! Counting Crows.. who can forget mr jones or long december.. damn i miss the 90's

      Legendery Song by Legendery Band
