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

    By: Rowan Gazzard
    • 10. Monkey Wrench by Foo Fighters
      Last but not least, probably the most under-rated tune of the 90's. still rocks along with the rest of them though.
    • 9. Stage by Live
      Throwing Copper Is a great album, but i get sick of hearing about songs like "I alone" and "all over you", Stage is one of my fav tunes. #9
    • 8. Sleep on it by The Living End
      Another Aussie Band, and another not so well know song..... But it still makes #8 on my chart.
    • 7. Stay Away by Nirvana
      I know, everyone likes Teen Spirt and Come as you are, but its te other less known songs that often have a better feel to them.
    • 6. Climbatize by The Prodigy
      aaaaahhhhhh, the prodigy, Electronica as it is meant to be, high energy alternative music, This one is off "The Fat of the land" and has the best bass line.
    • 5. Silence by Dilerium
      Only one Dance song on my list, this one i like because of the haunting nature of it.... a bit like enya (if you like that stuff)
    • 4. October Grey by Screaming Jets
      The No. 1 single of their World gone Crazy Album. gotta love that mellow rock.
    • 3. Faultline by Silverchair
      A great Aussie band, many great songs on the FrogStomp album but this is the best one.
    • 2. New Millenium Homes by Rage Against The Machine
      Commonly referd to as "Hungry People", a bit alternative, by Zack de la rocha's vocals are amazing.
    • 1. WonderWall by Oasis
      A tune i cant get out of my head, and yet so simple.....

    and my next 10 songs (no bands listed): EveryDay Formula, Dam at otter creek, Black Hole Sun, Shivers, DCx3, Pay the Man, bad habit, lip up fatty, Bulls on parade, My Friends.

    • 10. Clubbed To Death by Rob D
      After hearing the name....ur ready fer some serious acid metal...n then u et bewildered by the piano....a fantastic piece...mixing piano with drums guitar n the work....melodious....
    • 9. Stan by Eminem
      Wotever u say about Eminem...this is one song that is definitely worth the accolades.....
    • 8. Mea Culpa by Enigma
      Enigma redefines music....DEFINITELY a must-hear song!
    • 7. Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd
      Am not sure if this was in the 90s or 80s.....but here's a song that makes u want to think!!
    • 6. Crawling by Linkin' Park
      Nice song....soft...loud...soothnig...blasting...a very paradoxical song!
    • 5. Where Did You Sleep Last Night by Nirvana
      Nirvana is undoubtedly the band that changed the face of music.It was really tough for me to decide which one to put...there are sooo many great ones..."Smells like teen spirit", "Something in the way", "Rape me" , "Milk it" , "Lithium" etc etc!!! This one gets the spot bcoz of the sheer POWER that comes out of Kurt Cobain's mouth....especially in the latter part of the song....
    • 4. Nothing Else Matters by Metallica
    • 3. Estranged by Guns n Roses
      Another GNR number....but then wot to do!! it's a helluva good song...Slash's guitar work is once again AMAZIN...
    • 2. Creep by Radiohead
      Even this can be a No.1 on my list....the sheer anguish that comes through the song is awesome....the pain...n the suffering...it's a brilliant song..especially when u've been hurt...
    • 1. November Rain by Guns n Roses
      Wot to say...really! The song speaks for itself...heart-wrenching n filled with power....Slash's guitar work is GOD-LIKE!!!

    Plz note that there is no NSYNC or Backstreet Boys in my list...n that's the way it SHOULD be....coz that's not music....Also...my music is something which makes me think...smile...cry...basically music which FORCES a reaction out of the listener.....u be the judge now.....
