Here are the greatest '90s rock songs, ranked by fans everywhere. The '90s were an interesting time for rock. The decade ushered in the emergence of grunge, which knocked well-known pop artists, like Michael Jackson, off the top of the charts. Nirvana was the most famous band of all time, and other artists like Pearl Jam and Soundgarden followed suit. However, grunge died off toward the tail-end of the '90s. In its place, pop-punk acts rose to prominence as well as nu-metal artists. No matter which genre you liked best, they all rocked hard. This list contains great '90s rock songs from Metallica to Blink-182. 

Some songs like "Enter Sandman" by Metallica had people headbanging to MTV. Others, like "Buddy Holly" by Weezer, had a bit more fun. It didn't necessarily elicit headbanging, but the music video was great, and Weezer has continued that same self-deprecating humor to this day. Only the '90s could bring such rock anthems as "Black Hole Sun" and "Man in the Box." We'll never see another decade like it, so enjoy this trip down memory lane with this list of the most popular rock songs of the '90s. 

After jamming to all these hit songs, you can vote for the ones you like best. Rock enthusiasts from all over have voiced their opinions on this list of hit '90s rock songs, and you can chip in next.
