Best Grunge Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Bodies - Smashing Pumpkins
22Spoonman - Soundgarden

This one's great, catchy and rhythmic masterpiece. Can't believe it's this low on the list! Should be top 5 at least!

23Gone Away - Offspring

This is a punk band not a grunge band. Still good, but not grunge.

Never Put an Offspring song on this list. They are a terrible band, and in no way even a grunge band.

24Rape Me - Nirvana

When I first got In Utero I loved Heart-Shaped Box, but each time it ended Rape Me played and it just started to sound amazing. My favourite song and it encapsulates grunge perfectly.

Amazing, pretty much any Nirvana song is. Them and Alice In Chains, absolutely AMAZING!

Honestly, its much more hard hitting than any song on this list. - PwnC0cktail

25Creep - Stone Temple Pilots
26Porch - Pearl Jam
27Them Bones - Alice In Chains

Awesome grunge song that happens to be featured in Grand Theft Auto SA

Great intro to a great song to a great album

28Touch Me I'm Sick - Mudhoney

Mudhoney defined grunge before nirvana were even around! For there not to be a mudhoney song in the to 10 is wrong. They never reached the fame of nirvana or Pearl Jam, but the fuzz and anger are pure grunge

Such an amazing song. Pure grunge at its finest. Catchy, funny, and undeniably grungy. Should be much father up!

This is the underground grunge anthem

29Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns - Mother Love Bone

Masterpiece! As all the rest of the songs here are brilliant, this is with no doubt my favorite of all times!

RIP Andrew

Hands down one of the best grunge songs ever written. It should at least be in the Top 10!

This song is the Stairway to Heaven of grunge

30Lounge Act - Nirvana

One of the best songs ever! I really love it. Keep voting for it! You know that it's great. May writer Kurt Cobain Rest In Peace.

Listened to this so many times, can't stop loving it man. Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden and Pearl Jam made me. Rock on dudes m/

Hadn't found this gem until a few years ago.
COME BACK KURT WE LOVE YOU

31All Apologies - Nirvana

Great acoustic guitar from unplugged, but Nirvanas best acoustic song is DO Re MI; the last song kurt ever wrote.

32Jesus Christ Pose - Soundgarden

A very unique song, a masterpiece, and the music video is awesome, is a mix of metal and grunge that makes it their best song of the album Badmotorfinger

33Burden In My Hand - Soundgarden
34About a Girl - Nirvana

I'm not to crazy about the Bleach version but rather the MTV Live version. I love the song stripped down. It's somewhat soothing but nevertheless, the song itself is great! Love Kurt Cobain! RIP.

35Leash - Pearl Jam

Ultimate 90s feeling and great vocals

36Everlong - Foo Fighters

I don't care what your list says, this is number 1!

Foo Fighters is a post-grunge band...

37Glycerine - Bush

How is this not in the top ten? Easily one of the top five grunge songs written, so moving, it's the perfect song!

Such a powerful song, Bush may not be my favorite band but they sure know how to write feelings into lyrics.

The simplicity of this song is just perfect.

40Nearly Lost You - Screaming Trees

My favorite band! they have so many great songs, this is one of them, but also halo of ashes, caught between, who lies in darkness, no one knows, winter song, witness, ah so many! in my dreams they are together again and come to Argentina. I love mark lanegan...

this band should be in the top ten. and why the stone temple pilots aren't there too? such a shame. plush is such a powerful song

This song should really be in the top ten. Screaming trees is a great band! - Imreallyboredrightnow
