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 OK Computer - Radiohead

Fantastic album, radiohead at it's best

What the hell? Number twelve! Just. No.

Boring album by a annoying band. - Sabbath

Better than seventh place. - BruceStark

7 Dookie - Green Day
8 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.

9 Superunknown - Soundgarden

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
