    Godsmack is a go. Disturbed didn't come out until 2000.

    Needs some Elastica and Garbage, maybe some Breeders as well.

    Good call on Garbage; Stupid Girl should fit. Oh, and on that note, No Doubt is a given.

    Edit: Never mind; I saw you already added it.

    Tonic.

    Open Up Your Eyes
    Casual Affair
    If You Could Only See

    It doesn't get any more 90's than that.

    I'm no huge fan of thiers but Sublime should be on that list
    I'll second this, maybe Wrong Way or Santeria.

    Pitchfork Media's Top 100 Albums of the 1990s

    It's Pitchfork, so take that as you will. I think there are some great suggestions on there.

    Pavement is the most overrated band ever. They even have the fucking Silver Jews on there.

    I was about to rage on those fuckers for finding space for two Radiohead albums but no space for Paul's Boutique.

    Then Wikipedia informed me that Pauls Boutique came out in 1989.

    However, I think "Hey Ladies" should get an exception, and be put on any decent '90's mix. It was probably still getting airplay in 1990 anyway.

    I hate them a ton. Saw them play in Lubbock Tx, they refused to play their only song that anyone had even heard of, and then the lead singer started trying to throw down with some guy in the front of the show because he kept yowling for that stupid song.

    That is not how a mediocre one-hit wonder is meant to behave.

    They weren't one hit wonders, if I remember. They had "Allison Road," "Follow You Down," and a few others......

    As much as it pains me to say this, I'd say your compilation needs Hootie and the Blowfish.

    Offspring perhaps?

    Pork Soda rocked ass.

    and by rocked ass, I mean was hilarious but sucked.

    If I ever have to hear another Hootie and the Blowfish song again, I'll go all ninja on whoever put it on.

    I don't like that Pitchfork list at all. I found that list helpful for reminding me about bands I'd forgotten (a few of them anyways), but really, there's no need for two albums from any one band. Even Radiohead.

    Third Eye Blind should probably be on there somewhere as well. I'm not a huge fan, but they had a few catchy tunes, and they were pretty massively popular in the late 90s IIRC.

    Seriously though.

    And just to be a dick

    De La Soul - Stakes is High
    Blackstar - Respiration
    Tupac - I dunno, I don't listen to him - Kalifornia?
    Biggie - again, fuck if I listen to him, but damn if he isn't THE '90s.
    A Tribe Called Quest - Scenario
    Mobb Deep - Shook Ones Pt. II
    Common - I Used to Love H.E.R.
    The Roots - Clones
    Wu-Tang - C.R.E.A.M.
    Outkast - Da Art of Storytellin' (Part I)
    Eminem - My Name Is

    Man, there's way more stuff, too. I like the alterna-rock, too, and oh yeah, sleeping on the techno that Jhraggen listed, too. There's hella good shit from the '90s besides alternative, yo.

    Hmmm.

    Rancid? Time Bomb was a pretty big single for them at one point in the 90s.

    Temple of the Dog. Pearljam+Soundgarden? Hell yes

    Metallica's Black Album was a 90s record. Perhaps Enter Sandman.

    Well, he's not really going for the quintessential songs from the artists he has chosen either.

    Everything they did together is fucking brilliant, but this is my favorite.

    Oh, and...

    Folk Imposion - Natural One

    Got quite a bit of airplay around the time Kids came out. I wouldnt' be surprised to see this pop up again in a movie trailer. It just doesn't sound like anything else.
