I listen to Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam and a little Soundgarden but i want to get more exposed to grunge so would you recommend me essential grunge traacks??

Well if you like Pearl Jam you can always go back in time a little bit to Temple of the Dog. Mad Season was also a cool little side project with members of Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains.

Listen to some screaming trees the guitar parts are great, and I second mudhoney I just learned blinding sun last night, and if you like pearl jam you might wanna check out mother love bone they were like a cross between hairmetal and grunge but they were the original incarnation of pearl jam (before andrew wood died and eddie vedder took over.

Early Soundgarden is IMO the epitome of "grunge"
Oct. 20th, 2009: New guitar AND front row for Mars Volta.

Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?


I met Sonic Youth on June 30th, and Mars Volta on Oct 20th.

Check out the "big 5" post-grunge bands:

Bush
Candlebox
Silverchair
Live
Collective Soul

For real grunge check out Green River, Mad Season and Screaming Trees. And of course Stone Temple Pilots. Especially their first two albums, amazing stuff.

The interesting thing about grunge is that it has two very different faces.
One is the more hard-rock-orinted, metal-influenced sound of bands like Soundgarden Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam.
The other is the more punk-rock-sounding, noisy stuff along the lines of Mudhoney, Nirvana, and Babes In Toyland (also, Dirty-era Sonic Youth).

I definitely recommend bands of the later category. Check out "Fontanelle" by Babes in Toyland, "Superfuzz Bigmuff" by Mudhoney, and "Goo" "Dirty" and "Experimental Jetset"
by Sonic Youth.

silverchair, garbage, radiohead, soundgarden
I'm a female left handed guitarist.

Check out Jerry Cantrell's solo album, Degradation Trip. Probably my biggest influence as a guitarist.
#19
Dirt by Alice in Chains. To me, that had to be the pinnacle of all grunge albums, and one of my favorite-ever albums.
#20
stone temple pilots has always been my favorite grunge band, screaming trees and collective soul have some great stuff too

Does anybody else think that grunge should have it's own forum?

The album In Utero- Nevermind is hardly a grunge album
It's a lot more grungy than Nevermind. C'mon, even the lead single(Heart Shaped Box) follows the stereotypes of grunge to a tee.

Superunknown by Soundgarden is great, and also temple of the dog, which i dont think has been mentioned. Anyting with cornell in the 90's
STPs core has some pretty cool tracks to, some badarse riffs there was an acoustic instrumental called sin which is very reminicient of those metalica intoductions - like battery.
