Best Rock Albums of the '90s

The Top Ten

Nevermind - Nirvana Nevermind - Nirvana Product Image

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.

An absolutely legendary album that shaped and changed modern alternative/grunge music.
In my opinion the top 3 should be: Nevermind, Dookie, Enema of the State

Never forget the first time I heard smells like teen spirit, I knew things would never be the same in music again.

Nirvana the best band in the world!

Dirt - Alice In Chains Dirt - Alice In Chains Product Image

More like 269 times better... Trust me I'm not kidding, most of the albums below Nevermind are a lot better. Nirvana may have a few good songs, but most of their discography is pretty doodoo.

Ten times better than Nevermind in my humble opinion

Metallica - Metallica Metallica - Metallica Product Image

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

Ten - Pearl Jam Ten - Pearl Jam Product Image

I was a rabid Iron Maiden guy who listened to grunge for the first time with Alive. Felt in love immediately.

OK Computer - Radiohead OK Computer - Radiohead Product Image

This album needs to be number 1 on the list

Fantastic album, radiohead at it's best

What the hell? Number twelve! Just. No.

Boring album by a annoying band.

Dookie - Green Day Dookie - Green Day Product Image

Every song in Dookie is energetic and fabulous, but "Basket Case" is in the class of its own. The simple chord progression and melodies are so catchy, and it was this song that made me realize the greatness of Green Day.

Every song here is perfect. Each track has it's own place to make this one of the best albums in existence!

Blood Sugar Sex Magik - Red Hot Chili Peppers Blood Sugar Sex Magik - Red Hot Chili Peppers Product Image
Innuendo - Queen Innuendo - Queen Product Image

It's not as influential as Ok Computer, but it's the best in terms of musical maturity. Innuendo(song) is one of the greatest song.

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.

Their last album was actually made in heaven

Innuendo is a masterpiece.

Weezer (Blue Album) - Weezer Weezer (Blue Album) - Weezer Product Image

Someone tell me why this is so low. Every song on this album is a perfect 10. Also one of the first albums I ever owned as a kid.

Should be in top 15

The Contenders

Superunknown - Soundgarden Superunknown - Soundgarden Product Image

For me this IS the #1 album of the 90's. Not a single song in here that's not a masterpiece.

Superunknown is the best,it has such good lyrics,amazing guitar riffs,mindblowing solos,it's an absolute masterpiece,for me and millions of fans around the world,this is NUMBER 1. I know almost all the Superunknown songs with my electric guitar

Insomniac - Green Day Insomniac - Green Day Product Image
Aenima - Tool Aenima - Tool Product Image

Should be at the top of the list Tool is the best band ever made.

Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers Product Image

Am I the only one who thinks Californication is better than Blood Sex Sugar Magik? I mean personally I believe both deserve to be on a top 10 greatest rock albums of the 90s list. But if I had to choose one, I'd say Californication is the better album.

Nightfall In Middle-Earth - Blind Guardian Nightfall In Middle-Earth - Blind Guardian Product Image
The Colour and the Shape - Foo Fighters The Colour and the Shape - Foo Fighters Product Image

The best Foo Fighters Album

Everlong. Monkey Bussiness. enough' said.
