Best Rock Albums of the '90s

The Top Ten Best Rock Albums of the '90s

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!

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

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 - YCLP33

2 Dirt - Alice In Chains

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

3 Ten - Pearl Jam

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

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 OK Computer - Radiohead

Better than seventh place. - BruceStark

This album needs to be number 1 on the list - DarkBoi-X

Fantastic album, radiohead at it's best

What the hell? Number twelve! Just. No.

6 Blood Sugar Sex Magik - Red Hot Chili Peppers
7 Dookie - Green Day

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

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.

8 Innuendo - Queen

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 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

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

10 The Razor's Edge - AC/DC

The Newcomers

? Made in Heaven - Queen
? Ballbreaker - AC/DC

The Contenders

11 Aenima - Tool

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

12 Weezer (Blue Album) - Weezer

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. - swagmaster97

Should be in top 15

13 Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers

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.

14 Nightfall In Middle-Earth - Blind Guardian
15 The Colour and the Shape - Foo Fighters

The best Foo Fighters Album

Everlong. Monkey Bussiness. enough' said.

16 Issues - Korn

Best Album Ever!

17 Insomniac - Green Day
18 Achtung Baby - U2

A very good album, but not better than Loveless. - BruceStark

19 Vulgar Display of Power - Pantera
20 (Hed) Pe - (Hed) Pe
21 Siamese Dream - Smashing Pumpkins

How is this 32? It has to be #1, not just for 90s music, but all time albums in all genres all time periods. In 1,000,000 years, this needs to be first.

Siamese dream deserves to be in the top 5 albums of the 90's.

22 Evil Empire - Rage Against the Machine
23 Time's Up - Living Colour
24 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.

25 Core - Stone Temple Pilots
26 Jagged Little Pill - Alanis Morissette
27 Short Bus - Filter
28 Smash - The Offspring

I lost 6 pounds the first afternoon I played this album in the living room. I couldn't stop jumping, screaming and running around furniture.

29 In Utero - Nirvana

So much better than Nevermind. - BruceStark

30 Burnt Offerings - Iced Earth
31 Get Some - Snot
32 Painkiller - Judas Priest
33 Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine
34 Sublime - Sublime
35 (What's the Story) Morning Glory? - Oasis

Best album of the 90's.
Don't look back in anger, Wonderwall, Champagne Supernova, Some might say, Hello, Morning Glory, all songs are quality

This album got Oasis international. Don't tell me this isn't within the top 50. Just don't.

62, really? This must be at least on the 15th place

This has to be in the top 5/3

36 Land of the Free - Gamma Ray
37 Where You Been - Dinosaur Jr.
38 Use Your Illusion I - Guns N Roses
39 Throwing Copper - Live

This album transcends generations it's so damn good. I'm 66 and I love it.

40 Vain Glory Opera - Edguy
41 The Division Bell - Pink Floyd

This is so much better than everything above it( except nevermind mabey)

42 Black Sails In the Sunset - Afi
43 Follow The Leader - Korn
44 One Hot Minute - Red Hot Chili Peppers
45 Crazy World - Scorpions
46 Slave to Grind - Skid Row
47 The Bends - Radiohead
