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.
