Could you give me several examples of common chord progressions that bands such as Pearl Jam and Soundgarden use?

Why were you going to make fun of Nirvana but then suggest the single most common chord progression in music? That's kind of odd.

I need something that sounds really gritty...or would that just come from my tone? You see my voice...is...um...not very good so yeah...

just strum your guitar still it kind of sounds good. That's all grunge is anyway in tune fuzz.
Run!

That grunge sound has more to do tone and rhythm than the chords you're playing. Just make sure you're playing in key and move some power chords around. There is no "grunge progression". It's more about how you play than what you play.

Try some lower chord voicings for a heavier sound.

Also... pick out some grunge bands or songs you like and analyize the tabs. You may find they have a lot in common as far as key, technique, etc.

try using the natural minor scale, with the flat fifth added in (so its like the blues scale mixed with the natural minor)

and use the chord built from that flat fifth alot

Some grunge is just random ****. Some is kind of stranger punk. The rest is a combination. Dont forget to add distortion and that your singers voice cracks with some rock beats on the bass and drums. Add water and you have grunge!!!!!
This is what you get.

I IV iii vi

Best. Progression. Ever.

Sorry, it's Nirvana, but it's a common grunge progression.

It's better with no teeth, trust me. Much fewer scars on my penis now that I've switched from seniors in high school to senior citizens.
