#3 – Toadies – “Possum Kingdom” – (1994)

I don’t think rock songs can get much better than this. What riffs! This song seriously rocks. “Don’t be afraid, I didn’t mean to scare you. So help me Jesus.” This is the Toadies’ most well-known song and it was a top ten on the Mainstream and Modern Rock chart. It just keeps building and building as the song goes – or at least it seems like it does, which is a good thing for a heavy grunge song such as this. You get the feeling that it’s going to explode at some point. The Toadies aren’t household names like the artists with the top two songs on the lists, but the song stands right there with them.
