The Contenders: Page 4

61 The Divine Wings of Tragedy - Symphony X The Divine Wings of Tragedy - Symphony X
62 Niji - L'Arc~en~Ciel Niji - L'Arc~en~Ciel

the instrumental solo is awesome! very catchy - ronluna

most emotional sad song of the band - ronluna

A monumental song with Nazi-influenced European PV. Plus the transition from one drummer to another. Perfect fit for a historic move.

63 Bleeding Me - Metallica Bleeding Me - Metallica
64 On a Plain - Nirvana On a Plain - Nirvana
65 Bullet with Butterfly Wings - Smashing Pumpkins Bullet with Butterfly Wings - Smashing Pumpkins

This is one of my favorite rock songs from the 90's. I saw bands I liked better like Megadeth and Judas Priest but the title is rock song, not metal songs. This song reminds me of better days - Johnnyt800

Smashing Pumpkins brought great energy to the stage, monuments to an elergy was one of the best albums they have ever had

66 Grace - Jeff Buckley Grace - Jeff Buckley

I dare anyone to find a rock song like this. Haunting, yet melodic, almost painful to listen to, yet you'll never get tired of hearing it over and over.

67 Say It Ain't So - Weezer Say It Ain't So - Weezer

Say it ain't so should be to 20, definitely not so far down. And why is the good life always up top above this one? that wasn't even close to a radio song?

Oh my gosh this song was the best rock song of the 90s.but it was close to the sweater song and doing time

Great song! My favorite from weezer it should be top 15

68 I Just Want You - Ozzy Osbourne I Just Want You - Ozzy Osbourne V 1 Comment
69 I Don't Want to Miss a Thing - Aerosmith I Don't Want to Miss a Thing - Aerosmith

Probably Singapore's rock anthem of the 90s.

70 Soul to Squeeze - Red Hot Chili Peppers Soul to Squeeze - Red Hot Chili Peppers

This song meant a lot to me in my teenage years growing up. I think it definitely belongs in the top 10!

71 The Beautiful People - Marilyn Manson The Beautiful People - Marilyn Manson

It is titled "the Beautiful People" and it is and will always be a classic. Marilyn Manson's defining song of the decade.

Come on now the riff to this song is classic.

Why is this so low? Does everyone hate Marilyn Manson? It wasn't the best song, but it DEFINITELY wasnt the worst.

Marilyn manson is not one of them.

72 The Way - Fastball The Way - Fastball

This is the greatest song by far of ANY year, decade, millenium, etc. It has the complete package--lyrics, vocals, instrumentation, wow!

this is such an awesome song. I love it. - jwileson

73 Pink Spider - hide

Wicked song by an incredible musician. Died before his time, RIP

74 Cherub Rock the Smashing Pumpkins Cherub Rock the Smashing Pumpkins
75 Live Forever - Oasis Live Forever - Oasis

This song is a true example of the way rock can tear people from their lives and throw them into a storm of musical genius.

The riff is one of legend and proves that oasis really are the best band of the 1990's.

a hugely overlooked song, go listen to it, live forever will remain in the shadows of other big names, but will always be a key piece of music in the history of rock

I agree that this is a legendary riff. It also just happens to be one of my favorite guitar solos of all time. Hugely underrated song.

This was the best single from Oasis until 1997

One of their best overall

It also doesn't exactly like the Beatles

Greatest rock ballad of the 90's with the greatest guitar solo of the 90's

76 Nookie - Limp Bizkit Nookie - Limp Bizkit
77 The Good Life - Weezer The Good Life - Weezer

Awesome band that a suprising amount of people don't know about
