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.

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

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

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.

3 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

4 Ten - Pearl Jam

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

5 OK Computer - Radiohead

What the hell? Number twelve! Just. No.

Boring album by a annoying band.

This is the greatest album of all time, let alone greatest rock album of the 90s

6 Dookie - Green Day

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.

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

7 Blood Sugar Sex Magik - Red Hot Chili Peppers
8 Innuendo - Queen

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.

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.

Innuendo is a masterpiece.

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.

The pinnacle of grunge!

10 The Razor's Edge - AC/DC
The Contenders
11 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.

Should be in top 15

12 Aenima - Tool

These guys were so cool and mysterious. I didn't know what the band looked like for a long time.

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

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
16 Issues - Korn
17 Insomniac - Green Day
18 Vulgar Display of Power - Pantera
19 Achtung Baby - U2
20 (Hed) Pe - (Hed) Pe
21 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.

22 Use Your Illusion I - Guns N Roses
23 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.

24 Evil Empire - Rage Against the Machine
25 In Utero - Nirvana
