The Top Ten

1
Nirvana
Smells like teen spirit, great song

anthonybecerra831

They were the 90s and Smells Like Teen Spirit was the anthem of the 90s
They were my number 1 in my top 10 too

2Alice in Chains
Without a doubt the best band of the 90s. Every song they did on the 90s is amazing.
Facelift, SAP, Dirt, Jar of Flies, Unplugged... All came out in the 90's. Best music around.
Cause their facelift album was awesome

3Radiohead
They made their best songs in the 90s: Creep, Karma Police, Paranoid Android.

Bman23


4Red Hot Chili Peppers

5Pearl Jam
Pearl jam is the best band ever, almost every song is a awesome and all the other bands are great too but they don't have as good as songs as pearl j has way more great songs.

6Oasis
What's the Story, Morning Glory? Best album of the 90's!

I almost voted for Radiohead, but they released half of their best material in the 2000's. Same with Tool, Weezer (arguably; the Blue album was pretty darn great), and Green Day.

7Guns 'n Roses

8Soundgarden
Best Hard Rock and superb high voice of chris cornell.

9Green Day
They are the best band of the 90s
There songs are so meaningful
GREEN DAYS AWESOME! Their dookie album is the best!
Best band in history! Please, please vote!

10Smashing Pumpkins

The Contenders

11The Offspring

12Rage Against the Machine
you add the Street Life of Rap and the Insanity of Rock and you come up with the most controversial group in the history of music

13Marilyn Manson
Sweet Dreams, Beautiful People, Tourniquet, Man That You Fear, The Dope Show, Rock Is Dead, I Don't Like The Drugs, Coma White. All of those hits are in the 90's.
Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals are amazing albums. In a decade were every band never put on a show Manson put on that show.
Hell yeah, long live Marilyn! Lunchbox is an awesome song from the 90's

14Lush
Lush.. Most under rated band of the 90s, this band was truely unique, when you listen to them you get this unexplainable vibe

15Blur
Pretty much all their albums except their debut and half of the great escape were amazing. With songs like Girls and Boys, Parklife, To the End, This is a Low, The Universal, Beetlebum, Tender and dare I say Song 2 to name a few, this band should be so much higher.

16Foo Fighters
I felt sorry for Dave Grohl in the 90s, always being asked questions about Kurt. But the Foo Fighters had three amazing albums. Monkey Wrench, Everlong, Breakout are some of the singles to mention

17Blues Traveler

18Pulp
Jarvis is an awesome song writer and front man. Common People is one of the best tracks of the 90s... easily!

19The Verve

20Counting Crows
Counting crows song have some of the most meaningful lyrics ever... I didn't vote for REM because some of their 90s albums weren't as good as the 80s albums. All of the ones I considered were Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Green Day, Smashing Pumpkins, REM, and Dave Matthews.
