The Contenders: Page 4

61 Belinda Carlisle Belinda Carlisle Belinda Jo Carlisle is an American singer who gained worldwide fame as the lead vocalist of the Go-Go's, one of the most successful all-female bands of all time.

Her peak was in the 80's but Belinda was no less amazing in the 90's. Her music was so underrated and overlooked during that era.

Guys, I recommend you these brilliant Belinda songs: "California", "Live Your Life Be Free", "Vision of You", "Half the World", "Do You Feel Like I Feel? ", "Big Scary Animal", "In Too Deep", "I Plead Insanity", "Little Black Book", "Love in the Key of C" and "All God's Children"

62 Goo Goo Dolls Goo Goo Dolls The Goo Goo Dolls are an American rock band formed in 1986 in Buffalo, New York, by vocalist and guitarist John Rzeznik, vocalist and bassist Robby Takac, and drummer George Tutuska.

They are an amazing band and I have seen them 3 times in concert. I was born in 1999 and I feel they should be higher on the list.

An amazing band. My favorite from this time period - ProPanda

How in the world is this band this low it's better than nirvanna by far just look at how many hits goo goo dolls (black balloon, let love in, here is gone, iris, better days, slide, broadway, naked, name, flat top, acoustic series in particular acoustic 3, sympathy, long way down, and more with 2 cds that got best disc of the year ( a boy named goo and gutterflower) yah good band better than nirvana but I do love nirvanna they would be 4th on my list becuase they put alternitive rock together in a way.

63 Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne

Are you kidding me? Who added her? Avril's first single was in 2002

She is so pretty and talented, should be #1 for sure. Nirvana is icky

Avril Lavigne kick some ass when she sing. Ever time I listen to one of her songs I say to myshelf dam what a songwriter.

She's so wonderful and pretty

65 Ricky Martin Ricky Martin Enrique Martín Morales, commonly known as Ricky Martin, is a Puerto Rican singer, actor, and author.

He is the sex symbol of music. Baby

66 H.I.M.
67 Queen Queen Queen are an English rock band formed in 1970. Members were Freddie Mercury (Vocals and Piano), Brian May (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and John Deacon (Bass Guitar, Vocals). Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury more.

Innuendo, show must go on, headlong... This single's are just from ONE album.

68 Bush Bush Bush are a British rock band formed in London, England in 1992. The band found their immediate success with the release of their debut album Sixteen Stone in 1994, which is certified 6× multi-platinum by the RIAA.

This was THE band of the 90s, every album was a blockbuster in its own respect and their discography is something few can match today.

If "Sixteen Stone" weren't so amazing, they would be higher up on this list, because every album after that was seen as a failure.
Kind of like M.C. Hammer, when you think about it.

69 Faith No More Faith No More Faith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1979. Before settling on their current moniker in 1983, the band performed under the names Sharp Young Men and later Faith No Man.

Angel Dust is a masterpiece!

70 TLC TLC TLC is an American girl group whose original recording line-up consisted of Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas.

TLC is the greatest American girl group in history! THEY WERE AUTHENTIC and one of a kind. Best female band to come out of the 90's! Definitely should be in the Top 20, not to mention the fact that these girls have sold 75 million albums worldwide!

TLC are the best... and Little Destiny's Child fan.. "Say My Name" came out early 2000 but that was a good song... Anyways, TLC's CrazySexyCool came out in 1994 and been on the top 20 charts for 3 years straight... plus in the year 2014 that 20 year album is What? STILL ON THE BILLBOARD CHARTS SELLING!

73 Jane's Addiction Jane's Addiction Jane's Addiction is an American rock band from Los Angeles, formed in 1985. The band consists of Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Stephen Perkins and Chris Chaney.

Originally began in the 80's. One of the most influential bands to musicians throughout the 90's and beyond. Easily my top 10 pick

74 Liz Phair Liz Phair Elizabeth Clark Phair is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist and pianist born on April 17, 1967 in Connecticut. more.
75 Die Ärzte Die Ärzte Die Ärzte (German for "The Doctors"), is a German rock band currently consisting of Farin Urlaub (vocals, guitar, bass), Bela B (vocals, drums, guitar) and Rodrigo González (vocals, bass, guitar, piano), that formed in 1982 in Berlin. more.
76 Destiny's Child Destiny's Child Destiny's Child was an American girl group whose final and best-known line-up comprised Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams.

Destiny's Child is one of the best girl groups of the late 90's- especially with the girl power man bashing songs they had in the 90's and I think Destiny's Child Say My Name song is their best 90's song from the 90's and

Destiny's child dominated the music scene in the girl band area and should totally be in the top five. - fisto77

77 The Cranberries The Cranberries The Cranberries are an Irish rock band who formed in Limerick in 1989. The band consists of lead singer Dolores O'Riordan, guitarist Noel Hogan, bassist Mike Hogan and drummer Fergal Lawler.

This band made a fantastic music in the 90's. Come on, vote for The Cranberries!

Hits - "Zombie", "Ode to My Family", "Linger", "Dreams", "Promises", "Salvation", "Animal Instinct", "Ridiculous Thoughts", "Free to Decide", "Just My Imagination", "When You're Gone"

Not the best, but far too low on the list... Zombie is a better hit than half the bands in the top 100 have

96? Come on... Should be top 10, no doubt about it.

Beautiful unique voice, melancholia, very romantic music, I mean.
I think they're one of the most memorable bands of the 90's.

And Dolores can be extremely sexy without any vulgar looking, in opposite to Spears, Aguilera and others...

78 No Doubt No Doubt No Doubt is an American rock band from Anaheim, California, that formed in 1986. Since 1994, the group has consisted of vocalist Gwen Stefani, bassist and keyboardist Tony Kanal, guitarist and keyboardist Tom Dumont, and drummer Adrian Young.

Amazing Band, worked their way up to the top, every album is different and follows a different and well executed concept, nothing sounds the same and they always put very much thought and emotion behind their work and have a good sense for the little details that make the difference.
Gwen is an iconic figure and few female singers can match her energy and stage acting skills.

The 90s have loads of great Bands like Radiohead, Blur, NIN, Oasis, RHCP which are amazing and would equally deserve a vote too, unfortunately I only have one.

WHAAT number 54 is rediculous they helped bring an entire genre of music mainstream. Any song they made was better then any crap Gwen made after she left.

79 Roxette Roxette Roxette is a Swedish pop rock duo, consisting of Marie Fredriksson (vocals) and Per Gessle (vocals and guitar). Roxette went on to achieve four US number-one hits with "The Look," "Listen to Your Heart," "It Must Have Been Love," and "Joyride", and nineteen UK Top 40 hits. Other hits include "Dangerous," more.
