Best Songs of the '90sSmells Like Teen Spirit wasn't the only song from the 90's. In fact it may not even be the best. Voice your choice.
The Top Ten
Nirvana? More like
Just behind Hotel California for best of all time.
This song is the quintessential grunge rock ballad of the 90’s. It exemplifies every aspect of the genre that it helped to create. Melancholy grit & bipolar tempo was the sound of a generation.
HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, HELLO?
This should be number one next to Killing in the Name Of and California Love.
This one is good - ElSherlock
Shoud be in the top 10, I mean come on number 13. Thats a great song and Slash and Axl preform at thier best!
Right now I'm crying because of November Rain, it's just the best
This song should be #1 - Singer4Freedom4 Comments
This song is so boss. GO Metallica!
Best song. No competition
Just <3 it
Wonderwall should be number 1 best song of the 90s not 3rd and Live Forever should be in the top 10 as well Live Forever not even in the top 76 who made this list
Heartfelt and catchy at the same time.
god song mellow but good and souled be 1 ON THIS LIST
Wonderwall is an amazing song and absolutely is one of the best songs from the 90s! I love that you included this!9 Comments
Should be number 1 though, even the album wins a grammy
Probably one of my favorite songs by Green Day. - Misfire
Best punk rock song ever... On 29? Please vote ya. But I can't understand what you like in smells like teen spirit and wonderwall these songs are good but not so much good. I can take wonderwall anyways but smells like teen spirit, what it really means and what is great in it I can't understand. Just normal music, normal vocal and stupid lyrics. And this song is rated in top 3? I takes Somwhere I belong a song by Linkin Park just a good hit by Linkin Park. Really its far away better than smell... It have better lyrics, vocal and music. Green Day and Linkin Park have almost more 50 songs each which are good then smells like... If don't trust try it
What the hell? This should be in the top ten! One of the best songs ever! Please vote, people! - georgielikesgreenday1 Comment
This song is one of the best songs of all time! How this isn't number one surprises me! It was one of most important songs ever created! - FireNinja606
Should be in top 5 - Disturbedpotato
This song should be #1 in my opinion. So much meaning and absolutely beautiful.
Great song I mean who is picking Metallica in front of this. This should be at least top 54 Comments
The best rap song of the 90's- possibly of all time.
Should be 1
Yeah...no you can only understand two lyrics. Call it a song no.
Are you kidding me? I voted for this to get it up higher. I don't think its the best but it is at least worthy of a top 5 spot. This song is kickass and launched RATM into the mainstream to continue blowing peoples minds. Nu-Metal was made by these guys. Long live RATM
This is the song that started it all...
The greatest rap song ever. Also the catchiest! Everything about it is perfect!
One of my top favorites. Should be on top,
One of the best song of Britney... Should be on top 5...
I love she's song
Rock on, Queen! Love you guys, The Show Must Go On is amazing, *my soul is painted like the wings of butterflies... *, love it.
Awesome and should be higher. Queens finest
Simply The Best
Best Queen Song3 Comments
Everlong is an amazing song, but judging by the rest of their output I guess this was just blind luck.
This song is amazing! Dave Grohl's voice just rocks it and deserve to be on the top ten!
Two words: Dave Grohl!
This was easily the best song of the 90s. Sure better than any that Madonna and Backstreet Boys put out. Also, Creep is higher than Paranoid Android on this list? Hell no. Creep is easily the most overrated Radiohead song in existence.
Here's why Radiohead's the best band of the 90s. Ed O'Brien's rhythm guitar skills are flawless. Jonny Greenwood's guitar solos are orgasms to the ears. Thom Yorke's eccentric yet deep vocals leave you in tears. Colin Greenwood's MASSIVE bass lines are simply amazing.
Not to mention Philip Selway is easily the most musically skilled drummer of the 90s. His absolute precision and ability to pull off the odd times that Radiohead's songs have, is incredible. No other drummer of the 90s could pull off such excellent drum lines, not even Travis Barker.
Seriously, Radiohead's music is so much more original than the rest of the 90s, and Paranoid Android epitomizes this fact. Just give it a listen, you'll see why.
This is better than backstreet boys! Way better! This should be up with smells like teen spirit! I love everyone who voted for this by the way. Also whoever voted for creep is one! - KidA
Truly an epic. Only beaten by Street Spirit. I couldn't find Street Spirit so I voted for this. Truly one of the best songs ever.
I may be paranoid, but I’m no android...
Insane lyrics, so innovative, breaks the status quo more than Nirvana can dream of. 1
Shouls be higher
Should be in top 10!
The best song ever
Too low on the list2 Comments
The greatest song for the 90s a hell of a lot better than any rap song
This song is amazing and got me through some tough times of my life.
Classic radiohead- hypnotic and filled with action all at once
AWESOME song and it should be in the top ten!5 Comments
Better than November rain, enter sandman and smells like teen spirit
His iconic song but he has done so many more that I like better
Top 10. Beautiful song
best song - s0ramble
I'm glad this songs towards the front and above the good life for once.
I voted this because my opinion matters.
One of the most underrated songs of the 90s
Such a beautiful song. - Dorito
Pretty sure this song is way better than where it is currently ranked. Also sure that you still hear this song on the radio, can't recall hearing any Backstreet Boys or SG on the radio lately.
Listen to this song unplugged to get a treat...Eddie Vedder is a God
How this is not number 1... No clue. This is honestly one of the best songs of all time! That is coming from a die hard metalhead and someone who usually doesn't listen to this stuff.
No better song in the world. That's all I have to say.
Screw evorybody who didn't vote pearl jam as number on, Jeremy is not my favorite songs but its still the song that made the 90, s happen.come on people. Pearl jam should be number one, next to nirvana.
240? I though this could be somewhere on top 50 but this low? - Disturbedpotato
No way at 60 should be higher
HA? why is this song not in the top 10?
RHCP's best song!
IT IS SHREK!
Mesmerizing and simply creative
This song should be at least in the TOP 10! Come on it's R.A.T.M an awesome band!
Who wouldn't like this song? Its amazing and definitely deserves the top ten
I know you think I'm crazy for putting this at the best Nirvana song, but just listen to it again.
Why is there no Radiohead in the top tens?
I love this song so much. - Singer4Freedom
An anthem - Memeswitjesus
Just as good as Wonderwall therefore deserves to be in the top ten
Although nobody can top the Beatles, Oasis gave them a run for their money, yeah?
"But don't look back in anger, I heard you say"
I love this song. It's one of my all time favorites, and I am a HUGE 90's music fan. It doesn't get much better than this.2 Comments
The best song of the 90s from one of the best albums of the 90s from one of the best bands ever. A classic to be remembered
Come on guise! Really? Backstreet boys at #2? That is inexcusable. I VOTE 4 U2!
This is the best song of the 90s
Loved this song! ♡
Definitely top 10 stuff, how is this not even on top 100! - Disturbedpotato
Why so low, people?!?!? HOW DARE YOU!
What...its one of the best songs of 90s...and its solos have so much emotions
Arguably rhcp best song
I love it more than Smells Like Teen Spirit to be honest. - Misfire
This is an amazing song, why isn't it in the top 30 at least?!
This and No More Tears deserve top 10.
Whitney is one of the best singers of all time. The song is an enduring legacy of the great singer that was Whitney Houston.
... I'm a little scared now. Why is this not in the top ten? Are the roptenners... Ok?
