    Just saw this the other night, and I was wondering what everybody thought about the list. I guess they put it out in Dec. 2007.

    Biggest omissions: A Boyz II Men song, Ace of Base's "The Sign" and Real McCoy's "Another Night"

    I also would've gone with a different Mariah Carey song, but eh. Maybe I would have put "One Fine Day" by her and Boyz II Men up there.

    What do you think about the list?

    I'm shocked that Nirvana was No. 1.

    And whatever happened to the Presidents of the United States of America?

    Moved to the country. Ate a lot of peaches.

    That the Backstreet Boys and Hanson were in the top 20 surely signifies both the list and the '90s were overflowing with fail.

    Fine list, up to No. 3.

    Another thing - what would any of you pick as your top 10?

    That Green Day's Good Riddance was at No. 37 seemed wrong to me. Maybe I'm biased -- hence the "gd" -- but I thought Green Day would have been a lot higher, especially with Basket Case from Dookie, considering what they did for the genre.

    And Iris blows. Name was, by far, the Goo Goo Dolls' best release.

    Both bands ushered in the boy band and teen pop era that dominated the later '90s though.

    And Iris is a phenomenal song.

    I was listening to Thin Lizzy for much of the 90s.

    But if I had to make a list, it would consist of eight Alice in Chains songs, Natalie Merchant's "Carnival" and that one song whose name I can't remember by Live.

    Guitar Hero 27 will have a tough time filling up their play catalog.

    Forgot about Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy was a good song.

    No. 6 is all the evidence I need to say that list is full of crap.

    (Pun intended.)

    I've always liked "A Boy Named Goo" more than any of their other albums. I think the frequency "Iris" was played killed the song for me.
