Great talented musicians who had a passion for music and were super talented and soulful and great songs that you can identify with

Breaking Benjamin is a band from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

Best song list :
- The Diary of Jane
- Breath
- Give Me A Sign
- Crawl
And many more.

Amazing but not grunge or even gungecore breaking Benjamin (named after lead singer Benjamin Burnley) is heavy metal much like three days grace.

23SilverchairSilverchair were an Australian rock band, which formed in 1992 as Innocent Criminals in Merewether, Newcastle with the line-up of Ben Gillies on drums, Daniel Johns on vocals and guitars, and Chris Joannou on bass guitar.

Just because they were late on the scene doesn't mean you can overlook them... Frogstomp + Freak Show are the best grunge albums of all time.

Nirvana is the best off curse... but this guys! I really believe silverchair was an amazing band in grunge scene, first 3 albums are great.
If you like nirvana or grunge and don't know this guys listen their albums.
PS: You don't regret...

27The Screaming Trees

You know this list was quickly done. They put this band on the list twice.

I'm not into them all that much, but Nearly lost you. What a great song.

Muse is the polar opposite of grunge

32HoleHole was an American alternative rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California in 1989 by singer and guitarist Courtney Love and lead guitarist Eric Erlandson.

Nirvana is the obvious pick for this list and for good reason but, we have to mention Kurt's wife's band. Hole is one of the most underrated bands I have ever seen! Courtney Love is an amazing singer as well! - micdanchris

Never in a million years should this band have been added to this list! I'm so disappointed that it is here!

The definition of grunge along side nirvana

Lol, post grunge bands like creed and Foo Fighters shouldn't even be on this list, let alone pop-punk.

38Tad

Tad was such an underrated grunge band

39The Afghan Whigs
40Skin Yard

Very very underrated group. Lyrically they were ahead of their time if you listen to the song "Skins In My Closet" he talks about skins in his closet in which he's referring to the different clothes he has in his closet and comparing to his different personalities or moods depending on what he wears for that particular day.. You have to be a musical genius to orchestrate this into a song... Just look up the lyrics for this song on Google and you will see this genius poetry word for word..
