Doesn't necessarily have to be plain rock. It can be borderline metal. There are a lot of classics. Some of them I've listed in my post in another topic earlier:

my favourite song from the 90s (after the obvious choice of Smells Like Teen Spirit) is probably Everlong by Foo Fighters, which is even today my favourite rock band; in part because there aren't enough great ones left anymore :(. Minus some of the filler in their albums - and they've got a large discography anyway - it's pure genius. I still think their 90s stuff is their best, but their last album is a pretty close second.

I also love Soundgarden though - Blackhole Sun, Spoonman, Outshined and Rusty Cage are just awesome tracks. Oh and Live To Rise is a new one from the Avengers Soundtrack. It was pretty sweet, not quite as good as vintage 90s Soundgarden but still a song where you think "this definitely doesn't need more cowbell!"

Alice in Chains - Man in the Box. Pure brilliance.

Stone Temple Pilots - Plush. Same deal.

Tool - Sober, Eulogy (underrated), Aenima. Love it all.

Helmet - Unsung. A masterpiece.

Prong - Snap Your Fingers Snap Your Neck. A classic.

Pearl Jam - Jeremy, Even Flow. Jeremy is easily among the most memorable songs out there.

Smashing Pumpkins - Zero, Cherub Rock.

Pantera - Cemetery Gates. Needless to say how awesome that song sounds.

Megadeth - Symphony of Destruction.

Nirvana .. I'm pretty sure everyone knows all of their biggies.


And there's obviously a bunch of other stuff. You can't have a complete list of great stuff from that era..there's just too much. Those were certainly the days.


As I said there, there's a lot of stuff I left out. RHCP, AC/DC, RATM, Kyuss, Mudhoney, SOAD .. to name a few. I tried cramming them into the poll.

Edit: Also feel free to add your own favourites! I'd be interested to see what your picks are like.

Agreed. Sober was the first one that came to mind for me, but they're all good.

IMO, the best music was released in the 90's, so this is tough.

Big Wreck - That Song
There's actually quite a few good songs off of their album In Living Memory Of, but I'll go with the one above.

The Flys - Got You Where I Want You

Harvey Danger - Flagpole Sitta

Weezer - The Sweater Song

Placebo - Pure Morning

I Mother Earth before and after Edwin left the band

Foo Fighters of the 90's, too hard to pick one song

Plus loads of Tool

Those are the first ones that come to mind but there's obviously tons more.

You're right! Can't forget about NIN. Closer would obviously be their biggest hit. I haven't listened to them in a while though.

Anyways, as much as I'd like to add more songs to the poll, I can't. 20 is the limit..

I'm pretty sure most people would disagree, although a lot of it is subject to opinion anyway. But thanks for the input.

True. There's so much out there. I left out Beck too for example, doesn't mean he wasn't among the best of them (in hindsight I probably should've put one or two of his songs on the poll .... oh well).

Nice list btw.

Disagree about what, the song or that the bands have better songs? For example AIC is one of my favorite bands but I'm still pretty confident that most people would agree with me that Man in a Box is far from their best. But you're right it is all subjective, and I'm choosing my favorites - not the bands' top singles. Oh and you're welcome.

PJ Harvey - Down by the Water
Faith No more - King for a day
Radiohead - Karma Police
Meat Puppets - Oh me
Ministry - Bad Blood
Smashing Pumpkins - Rhinoceros
Black Crowes - Remedy
Jeff Buckley - Eternal Life

That Slaves and Bulldozers is a better song than Blackhole Sun. I personally think Spoonman is my favourite, but Blackhole Sun has two more votes on it last I checked. So once again, the modest differences between the best of the best songs are going to be subjective.

Whereas, the differences between great and terrible songs are objective. Eg, compare this with anything by the Backstreet Boys (yuck).

Your two favorite Soundgarden songs come from Superunknown which is my least favorite of theirs so we will clearly have some disagreements on the bands songs. But just because BHS has 2 more votes than Spoonman on a poll that only has those 2 songs on it, doesn't have anything to do with the "best of the best", it's still all up to opinion. And my personal opinion is that neither of those songs are the best.

Pfft, favourite album =/= favourite tracks. Not all your favourite tracks have to be on your favourite album, or vice versa.

I'll have you know that Badmotorfinger is easily my favourite Soundgarden album. Super-Unknown is my second favourite so you got me there...
