Best Rock Albums of the '90s


The Top Ten

1 Nevermind - Nirvana

How is this number two if it has more percentage of votes than the #1 album. Also, the correct order should be Nevermind, Black Album, Dookie, Ten, Dirt followed by the others.

Nirvana the best band in the world!

KURT COBAIN... I regret one thing... that I wasnt born 30 years ago...

That baby has a big dick, - DapperPickle

2 Dirt - Alice In Chains

Ten times better than Nevermind in my humble opinion

3 Ten - Pearl Jam
4 Metallica - Metallica

There are a lot of solid albums of the nineties, but none contain the energy that this one has to offer.

If they would of stopped at this album they would of been bigger legends

5 Blood Sugar Sex Magik - Red Hot Chili Peppers
6 Innuendo - Queen

Their last album was actually made in heaven

Innuendo is a masterpiece.

Their most solid album from start to finish. Innuendo, I must be Going Slightly Mad, and of course Queen's finest hour: The Show Must Go On
Their last album just so happened to be there greatest one.

7 OK Computer - Radiohead

Fantastic album, radiohead at it's best

What the hell? Number twelve! Just. No.

Boring album by a annoying band. - Sabbath

Thank god this is above dookie

8 Dookie - Green Day
9 Aenima - Tool
10 The Downward Spiral - Nine Inch Nails

This is the greatest album from the 90's for sure. It never gets old and still sounds new in 2016.

The Contenders

11 Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers
12 Superunknown - Soundgarden

19 Vulgar Display of Power - Pantera
20 Black Sails In the Sunset - Afi
