Smells Like Teen Spirit – Nirvana
This is the greatest song of all time, changed the decade, ruled the generation, and never will be forgotten.
Thank you Nirvana for creating this song. Personally, I go through different musical cravings. At first it was pop punk (Green Day, Sum 41, Social Distortion), then gothic (My Chem. Romance, Evanescence, Black Veil Brides), and then classic (Pink Floyd mostly, also Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Who), but now I can lose myself in music like this. Songs like this are so hard and thrashy on the outside, but the lyrics incorporated are so incredibly emotional. Other songs that fit into this category: One by Metallica, Chop Suey by System Of A Down, Come As You Are by Nirvana, In Bloom by Nirvana, and Back In Black by AC/DC.
It’s the most honest song written and sung by a rock artist. That’s all.
Honest? It’s not even about anything! Kurt was drunk one night with a friend, spray painting on the walls when she wrote “Kurt smells like teen spirit” which is a deodorant. It means jack.
Greatest song by the greatest band of all time
2. November Rain – Guns N’ Roses
Common man, this is the 6th best Guitar Solo of all time, Best from 90’s, Song is so mesmerising that even if it is about 9 minutes, it cannot get out of your head even once during whole time of its playing, with the best rock voice of Axl & best guitar Soloist Slash in the world this is absolutely a perfect beauty, please vote it!
Dude Such a great quality melody this has n has mesmerized me in every way especially Slash’s touch of Awesomeness mixed with the Orchestral Mix of Smartness This Song Rocked in every possible way… This is it Just hear the full song once and…!
Everything is just perfect on this song, Slash’s mind blowing two solos, Axl’s haunting yet calming vocals, Duff’s and Matt’s fills sprinkled in their makes it perfect. Everything about it is perfect
This is better than Smells Like Teen Spirit. Deal with it!
3. Enter Sandman – Metallica
This is a great Metal song. People like to say this is where Metallica went downhill, I strongly disagree! By the way, what the hell is Bon Jovi doing on this list?
Best Metallica song ever. The real meaning is “there’s nothing to fear but fear itself”
The best metal song ever
This is the best known Metallica Song, off their best selling album. Hammett’s Solo is another work of art. It is still played at every sporting event to this day.
4.Black Hole Sun – Soundgarden
Wow this song has one of the trippiest videos ive ever seen, and has one of the most unique sounds ever. LOVE IT
nothing else sounds like this song. I can’t help but love it
The only songs that make sense here is black, black hole sun and november rain..nirvana and metallica is so overrated vote this up to number 3 enter sandman sucks
This should be way higher.
5. The Show Must Go On – Queen
This is a masterpiece!
This powerful music, this anthem of a man who dies, but does not give up…
The best song ever is so powerful you feel and understand the suffering he have but then he try to calm you but is hard to lose someone so talented.
R.I.P. freddie the show will have to go on but it would never be the same WITHOUT YOU
Are you kidding me this should be number 1. I get that we all love Nirvana but no one will ever be remembered like Queen will. And this song Is so powerful and was their last song.
Better than Nirvanna.
6. Everlong – Foo Fighters
This song should be at the top. Best song in the world, great guitar, great drumming, great singing and that was all done by dave grohl
I can say without a question in my mind, that this is THE best song I have ever heard. This song is sheer harmony, the vocals, the drums, the unforgettable guitar riff; it is all perfect together. If you have never heard this song you need to listen to it. Dave Grohl’s best piece.
FOO FIGHTERS most famous hit
Emotional, and a song that many people can feel!
7. Man in the Box – Alice in Chains
Still hearing this song on the radio in 2012. Obviously as good today as it was in the 90’s. Can’t help but crank the volume whenever I hear it.
One of my very favorite Alice songs, great guitar riffs and what can you say about Layne’s in your face vocals on this song – everything about this song rocks. LOVE LOVE LOVE this song.
One of the best songs every.
Absolutely fantastic song. When it comes at the end of a FF gig, I cannot describe the feeling with words.
8. Under the Bridge – Red Hot Chili Peppers
The first song I learnt on guitar and still my favourite to play. I started singing it at lunch time at my school and my friends heard it. They asked me what song it was and I told them, they went home and looked it up. The hole of year 7 loved it. My band is still trying to learn it even though I learnt it in grade 6, everyone thinks I’m a genius because I can play it. My favourite song, My favourite band Forever!
This is how you win revolutionary funk-rock album with very honest and beautiful ballad. 90’s got owned.
If you could wear a cd out, I would have with this one. Simply a classic 90’s song that is both unique and powerful. As much as I like many of the other songs on this list, this one is for me the best.
9. Painkiller – Judas Priest
Grunge tried to kill the Metal, but then Uncle Rob made this badass album
I’ve lost faith in humanity seeing painkiller so low
Should be much higher
What this is from the 90s
10. High Hopes – Pink Floyd
Pure brilliance! It should be much higher on this list
Although Pink Floyd’s greatest albums were from the 70’s, Pink Floyd have come out with the one of the most beautiful things (things, not songs in particular) that came across my life. Ever wondered what Heaven looks like? Listen to that slide guitar solo at the end.
High Hopes is amazing. High Hopes is a classic!
I never heard any other song near that quality in the 90’s.
It’s Pink Floyd. Enough said…
