In the 1990's, Rock 'N' Roll continued the saga of metal, and mellow/slow Rock, but also introduced us to Grunge Rock. While it may not be deemed the greatest decade for Rock music by many, several people still love 90's Rock. So, just like my other lists, I will pick 15 90's Rock songs which were somewhat well known, but not entirely overplayed either
15. "Santa Monica" by Everclear (Released in 1995)
I still wonder what would actually happen if we swam out past the breakers on the Santa Monica beach? The world may never know......or might die if that happened.
14. "All Apologies" by Nirvana (Released in 1993)
I decided to pick one of the most underrated songs from one of the most overrated bands. I had a girl in my second grade class named Mary, and I thought this song was talking about her.
13. "Brain Stew" by Green Day (Released in 1996)
Green Day is a legendary band at this point. Who would have thought this "trippy" song entirely about marijuana would be so.....catchy, and fun?
12. "Under the Bridge" by Red Hot Chili Peppers (Released in 1991)
It wouldn't be a 90's Rock list without the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who peaked in the 1990's. I'm going to take a guess and assume you didn't recognize this song by title, but you recognized it as soon as you heard it.
11. "Steal My Sunshine" by Len (Released in 1999)
This song flew under the radar, but this is one of those jams that reminds me of being a kid, running around in the Summer time.
10. "Creep" by Stone Temple Pilots (Released in 1992)
The Stone Temple Pilots had a short stint of big popularity in the 90's, and this song really does creep me out to this day.
9. "What It's Like" by Everlast (Released in 1998)
Whether you think this sounds like a Rap, or Rock song, the message in this song goes deep.
8. "Cradle of Love" by Bill Idol (Released in 1990)
I only posted this song out of pure nostalgia. I swear!
7. "Undone--The Sweater Song" by Weezer (Released in 1994)
If you have the "Blues", and are feeling down, just listen to this song. It speaks to you.
6. "Song 2" by Blur (Released in 1997)
The song lyrics may not make any sense, you may not understand what he is saying, the song title may be lazy, and it may not be the most talented song, but I know you love it.
5. "The Memory Remains" (Released in 1997)
I'm not fan of Metallica, but this song gives me metal-chills, and this is one of their more underrated songs.
4. "Cryin'" by Aerosmith (Released in 1993)
Steven Tyler actually sounds like he is crying during this song. Why do I like this song? I still have no idea why.
3. "What's My Age Again" by Blink 182 (Released in 1999)
Don't listen to Blink 182. People will dislike you just as much at the age of 23 as they do any other time.
2. "Spiders" by System of a Down (Released in 1998)
This songs gives me goosebumps! The video is scary, and it's one of System of a Down's first hits. What isn't there to like?
1. "Creep" by Radiohead (Released in 1993)
1990's music sure was CREEP-y: TLC released their song "Creep" in 1994, I already mentioned Stone Temple Pilots' "Creep" song in 1992, and now this depressing song. As a matter of fact, this song was so somber, it was temporarily banned on radio stations. And as a social outcast, I could easily relate to the loneliness present in this song.
