How impossible...you are talking about an unparallel movement in the history of music...the grunge era of music tied or perhaps even surpassed the genius of the Baroque period breaking a long confined to limitations world of music. It takes 25 in all honesty to do that time justice. It is like asking someone to name the three best romantic composers. Schumann? Liszt? Offenbach? Tchaikovsky? Debussy? Grieg? Wagner? Verdi? You would again need more like 10 or 15 slots. Same for classical ones. But if it must be ten here goes without any time taken to be sure so probably would be edited if I had time
Tied for 1. (Because the latter, 1B, is really a 70s-80s band but was winning hrammies and putting out best selling albums in the 90s and after...just 5 or 6 years short of 60 years!)
1A. Smashing Pumpkins 1B. Fleetwood Mac
2 The Cranberries
3. Our Lady Peace
4. Alice in Chains
5. Pearl Jam
6. System of a Down
7. Artificial Joy Club
8. Toad the Wet Sprocket
9. Stone Temple

There were "rock bands" in the 90's???? Really???? I don't think so!
If you want to talk about rock bands you need to go back further, like a decade or two. The real rock bands were in the 70's and 80's!!
Think about it...
Just compare the OP's list of bands (half of which I never even heard of) to the following:
1. Led Zepplin
2. Van Halen
4. Black Sabbath
6. Rolling Stones
8. Rolling Stones
10. ZZ Top
11. Deep Purple
12. Pearl Jam
Now go back and re-read the list in the OP and compare them to these guys! It's almost laughable.
You should change title to "My personal top 10 rock bands of the 90's"
Alice in chains, Tool, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Stone temple pilots, Soundgarden, Smashing pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine, Janes Addiction, Sublime, Korn.......
