Best Rock Songs Since 1990

The Top Ten

1 Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana)

Rock forever n ever

2 Rooster (Alice In Chains)
3 Prayer of the Refugee (Rise Against)
4 Can't Stop (Red Hot Chili Peppers)
5 Come As You Are (Nirvana)

This song's got it all. Rocking', laggy guitar riff, slick bass, precise and explosive drumming, amazing lyrics, and a decent voice to deliver. Pair that with desolate irony, and a legend is born.

6 M.I.A. (Avenged Sevenfold)
7 Jesus of Suburbia (Green Day)

21st century version of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. Poetic genius, instrumental value, and a huge sense of emotion.

8 The Kill (30 Seconds to Mars)

The band didn't produce many hits, but The Kill must be almost atop the list. Outstanding vocals and a concept to behold.

10 Killing in the Name (Rage Against the Machine)
