Searching for Good, Easy Grunge songs


View Full Version : Searching for Good, Easy Grunge songs

My grunge band, Idiot Carnival, is doing a show in about a month. We already have about six/seven songs, mostly material we wrote ourselves. However, we need some easy grunge songs that we can learn quick to use as "filler" or backup songs. Any ideas?

theres always the fan favorite, Smells Like Teen Spirit

Anything by Nirvana is pretty easy also try Jeremy and Alive by Pearl Jam, the former being a good fairly easy tune and the latter being slightly more difficult but with a great solo also if your up for it try black hole sun by soundgarden one of my all time favorite grunge tracks, also look into some mudhoney and sonic youth

The misfits/ramones is good cause all the riffs are wicked easy but they just sound so good
