Best '90s Bandsbeasthound
The Top Ten
Though they made good music, their popularity has become falsely inflated over the years. Seriously, Kurt wrote most of the songs of the first album overnight. A genius marketer, he knew the lyrics didn't matter as long as it had a good beat and a hook. Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, hell even Green Day have more thought in their lyrics than the average Nirvana song. - Xean45
Undeniably the best! Nirvana is an extremely innovative band which use elaborate elements and great writing to make an amazing success!
They were the 90s and Smells Like Teen Spirit was the anthem of the 90s

They made their best songs in the 90s: Creep, Karma Police, Paranoid Android. - Bman23V 1 Comment
Facelift, SAP, Dirt, Jar of Flies, Unplugged... All came out in the 90's. Best music around.
Without a doubt the best band of the 90s. Every song they did on the 90s is amazing.
Different, unique, and special. This band was ahead of its time. Amazing melancholic tunes. I love Nirvana, but AIC wins every single time in my book. Just in my opinion
Cause their facelift album was awesomeV 2 Comments
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.
Greatest band of the 90's! One cannot deny the lyricism and pure talent in Vedder's voice and the musical ability of the band. Makes every Nirvana album look like a Kidz Bop CD. Rock on PJ!
Ten...need I say more?!
Best band out of this list in my opinion
Amazing band live so much energy. I encourage you to see this band if you have the chance!
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.
Best band in history! Please, please vote! - georgielikesgreenday
GREEN DAYS AWESOME! Their dookie album is the best!
They are the best band of the 90s
There songs are so meaningful
Why are Green Day this low?V 1 Comment
Best Hard Rock and superb high voice of chris cornell.
2nd best behind only Alice in Chains
The Led-Zeppelin of the 90's. Can't take away how great the other bands on this list are... But Soundgarden is a 3rd place finisher. Behind only AIC and Nirvana...
No other band of 90's had the chops to pull of the scope of Mellon Collie.
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 - anthonybecerra831
Come on number 15? They shut down wall street! They have the most unique sound of the 90's and a perfect fusion of rap and metal.
Politically Inspiring Masters of rap metal.
Huge fan of this group. They rule - fuadmondeo
I hate guns and roses their music is the wrong thing to do my opinions 10 out of ten
A band that inspired a generation, truly summing up life in their lyrics. A clever, quirky group of talented chaps with a personality to match. Blur need to be in the top ten, the britpop movement was the nineties and it was Albarn who set it all in motion.
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.
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.
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 - mickeyG94
