People must know this song, definitely one of the best!

By far their best song. This song really led me to understand the extent of Layne's addiction, and how he felt.

This song IS Layne. It speaks to me on more levels than it should, and it's pure Alice in Chains.

I agree this song is their best song, just the vocals, intensity of Laynes voice, the final stage of his life. Furthermore, it speaks to the world in it's simplicity and sound of the instruments with Laynes voice. It is the troubles of man all in one.

This is a peaceful song with soul. Good meaningful lyrics. When it picks up speed it gets even better

Only 1% votes? This should if been played on unplugged and it should be on their best of album - Sabbath

This should be in the top 5 without a doubt!

The gem you're looking for

23 Dirt

One of my favorite songs! This should be a lot higher than 23. I love the emotion put into this song and the guitar riffs are just haunting.

Not the best, but really deserves a higher place.

So many great songs...top 5 for me

Best line ever...One who doesn't care is one who shouldn't be.
Layne in beast mode.

24 God Am

Great track by Alice in Chains. Although I recommend you listen to the live version off of Live. It is a much better take than their studio effort.

So haunting, so full of bitter truth.

The beginning riff is haunting

How can it be anymore perfect?

25 Sunshine

My favorite song, I see a young boy that's thinking about a dog that's been Mis treated and the boy relates and wonders where his father is and who is looking after him when he finally calls for his mother to come for him.

Memory set me free, I relate to this song.

To me its just the most soul shaking song. Everyone interprets things differently

This is one of my all time favorites. Vastly underrated.

Best

26 Over Now

I'm sorry, but my vote has to go to this song. This is the only Alice in Chains song where Jerry Cantrell used Open D tuning, and he does perfect. The whole self titled album had a really depressing feeling, but when I got here I cried, because it was that beautiful.

Very underrated, needs to be higher in this list, it has very good guitars and makes me feel good somehow, one of the best songs R.I. P Layne Staley

Weirdest emotional journey. The riff is one of my faves, it's so hard to explain! It's kinda a happy riff through a sad song which destroys you from the inside

Needs to be higher up the outro riff is so discordant and awesome

27 It Ain't Like That

Everything about it is genius. The lyrics, the music, the vocals, the chemistry, the production. Watch Layne sing it live and your mind will be blown. Insane energy.

Simplicity does the trick on his heavy slow alice classic

This is one of my favorite AIC songs. Such a heavy tune and it just has such a dark tone to it. Gotta love this tune. - sivart

28 Grind

Excellent, one of their best songs, that riff is awesome!
The verse is awesome to, the staley and cantrell harmony is awesome!

I have many favorite AIC songs but this is the one I always come back to.

30 Hate to Feel

I'll admit it is my second time voting, this is such an underrated song! It has so much emotion coming from layne following his fathers footsteps.

Love the harmonies, the descending chord progression, the shifting meters.

It's way much better than the position it's stuck in

This is a great song! Especially the riifs

31 Brother

I don't know if the world is going mad or what... A sure to be top 5 song of alice in chains si sitting so low I can't imagine please please listen 1st carefully and I know you will vote ty...

Definitely my favourite Alice in Chains song to listen to, but it's also a great, calm song to play on guitar if you know how. Easy, and a crowd-pleaser. Why this isn't in at least the Top 10 is beyond me!

Best alice in chains song ever don't know why this isn't in the top 10 great solo

This song should at least be in the top 20

32 Stone

New but brilliant. Loving the bass line and lead parts. Good vocals too.

Great song... should be higher

I just love it! L o v e :D

33 A Little Bitter

Must be a mistake #32?!?!? No no you mean 3 and 2 consecutively right?

34 Black Gives Way to Blue

In memory of Layne Staley... Deserves to be higher on the list. It shows that even without Layne Alice in Chains still is a good band.

Great song and fitting to close out the album.

Such a melody!

35 I Can't Remember

One of the best guitar riffs they ever wrote.

This song is amazing! Deserves to be in the top ten without a doubt. The harmonies between Duvall and Cantrell prove Duvall can hold his own as the new Layne. The lyrics are beautiful, and the song overall is soothing, emotional, and melancholy.

What is this masterpiece doing down at 37th?! It's a shame people vote before listening to all songs, because clearly this would have been in the top 10 had people given it a try. Please, please listen to the godly riffs, crunching beat and easily the best AIC chorus before voting! You'll realize what you have been missing out on all this while!

Awesome guitar play that makes this the best! Come on guys vote. One of the best 2013 rock songs

Possibly my favourite AIC song, at the very least my favourite since Staley died, though I would rank this at least in my top five favourites. Great guitar section at the beginning, and the video is very good to add. Might have voted for Grind, but this one is far too low.

37 Get Born Again

MOST AMAZING SONG EVER. This, Would? , Bleed the Freak, Frogs, and Rotten Apple. Oh! Don't forget Rain When I die. You know, there's just too many favorites from the greatest band of all time.

Awesome tune, I'm not quite sure I can put this in top 10... But it's knocking on the door.

Should be way higher!

Badass song - Kfox101

38 God Smack

Can't believe this is rated so low on the list. This song must be the most twisted Alice In Chains song ever. Layne's sterling swerving vocals just mesmerize and make the song truly remarkable...

This song is unbelievable; Layne's voice is untouchable. They didn't put any effect on his voice, it just has this miserable, aching vibrato. Amazing song, deserves to be much higher on the list

Unbelievable low rating for a song that spawned a band of the same name. Number 37, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Anyone that watches this song from one of their taped performaces with good audio will see what I mean. Should be in the top 10!

39 The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here

Good Song. In my opinion though it fails to capture the very essence of alice in chains.
