Even though Grunge was basically a Seattle fad, your selection doesn't have to be limited to Seattle bands. STP was a great Grunge band, and they were from Kali. Our Lady Peace was cool and so was Silverchair and they were not from Seattle either.

My favorite was definately Mad Season, with Alice in Chains as a close second.

Nirvana, then Alice in Chains.

I was never a big fan of Nirvana until about 6 months ago. The more I listen to their stuff the more I like them

I wouldn't consider ALICE as grunge. They actually had talent. I like Jerry Cantrel's solo stuff too.

I remember seeing nirvana play at GRCC for $2 back in the day, they really were quite a band.

Curt was murdered, ask anyone on the peninsula his age. Funny nobody anywhere else knows anything about the story.

Alice in chains is pretty cool too, gotta be in the right mood.

You're right, my bad.

Listen to what you want.

My opinion may be colored by my personal experiences anyway.

Pearl Jam
Soundgarden
Stone Temple Pilots
Alice in Chains

Furthermore...

Am I the only one who remembers Mother Love Bone? IMO...they were the birth of grunge.

Chloe Dancer is one helluva song.

I remember them, but they never gained any real popularity outside of Seattle. That kinda limits their legacy.

All outstanding bands. Hard to pick a front runner from that pack of thoroughbreds!

Hell ya I remember them. They were an excellent band and would have gone far had it not been for Andrew Wood's idiotic early demise....

Husker Du--pre-grunge but fucking awesome

Screaming Trees--saw live in '97--great live band and Sweet Oblivion is the one of the best of the category

Alice in Chains--not really "grunge" IMO but "neo-metal"--great band


Soundgarden--not really grunge either--and anyone who listens to their masterpiece Superunknown would recognize their talent--I got to see SG three times and they fucking ROCKED live--for the show in support of Superunknown Cornell seemed PISSED off the whole show but fed off of that intensity--those songs demanded it


Smashing Pumpkins--Siamese Dream set a new standard for fuzz-guitar rock anthems--was their an old standard? Great record

Lots of good bands came out of that era


Honorable mention to Nirvana--not my favorite but Nevermind has some good stuff on it

I concur. I really liked them at one time - now I get sick hearing them due to "my own personal experiences."

I lodge my vote for Pearl Jam and Nirvana.

Lots of grunge bands had talent. At very least they were innovative.

Alice in Chains, hands down the best.

pearl jam was trendy imo
Link Posted: 10/18/2004 9:51:17 PM EDT
In order to count, the lead singer must be dead.
Therefore, you are limited to three options.
Nirvana
Mother Love Bone
Alice in Chains.

For which I vote, AIC.

Grunge sucks. It's a state of mind more than it's music.

Bush was another pretty good Grunge band. Even if they were British!

Alice in Chains with Soundgarden a close second.

I like Audioslave even better than Soundgarden, though.
