Best Grunge Albums Everidolangelx13
The Top Ten
Dirt was a masterpiece, better than Nevermind.
This album changed my life
Excellent album, Facelift should be number one, Dirt number two, Soundgarden Louder Then Love number three.

Defines grunge. Transcends grunge. One of the greatest albums ever made.
Its not the album's fault Nevermind is overplayed, if you heard all of these albums for the FIRST time, Nevermind would overpower the others in my opinion, and what about Drain You, On A Plain, Stay Away? There are a few songs that are overplayed not ALL of them. Listen to it full way through and respect it as a whole, don't just mention the mainstream hits.
The seminal grunge album. Stacked with barn burners.
My favorite grunge album and one of my favorite albums of all time.V 16 Comments
This and Dirt should be the top 2. Nevermind is good but very overrated, and I don't even think it's Nirvana's best album. - Metarock
Come on. This is probably the most consistently good album ever made. There is not one bad song on here. The worst is probably Deep, and it's still great. - DasCanuck116
THIS IS MY FAVORITE ALBUM OF ALL TIME AND THE GREATEST GRUNGE ALBUM. Nirvana is my third favorite. Band and I love their music but nevermid is overrated in some ways it isn't even the best nirvana album. The pop. Songs aren't even the good ones. Pearl Jams my favorite band and always will be and ten is a flawless masterpiece
God I love this album... Eddie, Stone, Jeff & Mike are gods!V 10 Comments
Dirt is a trip through the desert depths of despair and decay. Nevermind is an introspective and hopeless, simultaneously cerebral and primal, attack on a disingenuous world filled with insincerity. Ten is a more hopeful affair, but that hope only fuels its anger with a world built on injustice and immorality, desperate to accuse, even if it must accuse itself.
Then there's Superunknown. It's internalized everything wrong with its world, and hasn't an ounce of faith or hope, let alone love, to spare. Occasionally this is only demonstrated by virtue of some fun escapism (My Wave, Spoonman, Half), but much more often it's stuck in it's own head. Desperate to escape its depression, but unwilling and generally unable to do so. The Day I Tried To Live illustrates this perfectly. Try as its author may, he only winds up becoming the evil in his head when he tries to escape its grasp. In Mailman, he lets this evil work through him by rising up against his unnamed oppressor only to ...more
alice in chains is my favourite band, but this is the best album, even better than Ten, Nevermind is overrated
I like pearl jam and nirvana equally, but soundgarden beats them both. - Flyingcobra
Nice album deserve in top ten but honestly nevermind is kind of overrated, what.. No dirt in this list.V 4 Comments
If we're talking strictly grunge, then this is a much better album than nevermind, simply because every song is so raw and displays everything that grunge is about, nevermind is the commercial album, in utero is the real sound of nirvana and grunge
Pure grunge... Pure Nirvana... In Utero should be 2nd best after Nevermind... Nirvana and their music was the only band that changed a generation, in fact, they did create a new generation...
Even better than nevermind
It has a very natural sound its very real it gives me a weird but good feeling when I listen to itV 4 Comments
Don't know very much about grunge, but this one is a fantastic album.
This album is amazing! How is this not in the top 10?
I like it more than anything on this list. - Gruunge
Core was better in my opinion.
My best album
Very strong album and scott weiland very strong vocal the really grunge
I feel as a lot of people underrate this album. It is very good.
My Favourite album of ALL TIME!V 3 Comments
This album came out in 1990, which is at least a year or two before many of the albums on this list. It's safe to say that it's a very important album in the history of grunge. Not only that, but it is heavy as all hell. I must also mention that Layne Staley's best vocals are often found here, especially on Man in the Box, I Can't Remember, Love Hate Love, and Confusion. This album is right on par with Dirt in my opinion, if not better, and it's also my favorite Alice in Chains album and favorite grunge album.
Major album in making grunge known. - dootdoot
The best grunge album. Not to mention, it's highly underrated
Think a combination of Pearl Jam and soundgarden - qaz9999
Better than the top 4 combined. - qaz9999
This is at #73... no that isn't right. This should be in the top two with Alice in Chains' Dirt. - IronSabbathPriest
Not only the greatest grunge album, but one of the greatest albums of all time.
One of the greatest album ever!
Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana, the fathers of grunge
Lol you don't know anything, Smashing Pumpkins aren't grunge and there were many grunge bands before Nirvana. - Gruunge
What? Top 5 this should be
This album is a masterpiece - Soulstealer
It has a llama can you go wrong
MY FAVORITE PJ ALBUM AND THEIR BEST
Nirvana's surface. No bleach no nirvana - no nirvana no grunge! Get with it guys! What did kurt cobain play at his last concert?
About a girl! Amazing song. Look it up fools!
No Nirvana no grunge? Soundgarden was formed two years before Nirvana - abefennema
This is true grunge, underrated
BEST NIRVANA ALBUM. But soundgarden started grunge so
This isn't in the top 10! This is the best Nirvana album!
YES. SO MUCH YES. This album... just yes.
An art work
The best EP ever made - NewAgeAnarchist
I love this album so much it should be higher
AKA the Tripod album. One of the darkest, creepiest, slimiest grunge albums ever and a damn good one too. Best song, Frogs. Check it out!
Why in the living hell isn't this in the top 10.
Best Alice album and the best piece of art from 90�'s grunge scene.
For " Tighter & Tighter"... The best Soundgarden song.
Best album of the lot - great tunes, great lyrics and surely would have made a major impact if Andy Wood hadn't died just before the release.
Nevermind, Superfuzz Bigmuff and Ten. I prefer the original EP version of this one.
This album was made up from 4 songs. No one listens to any songs on this album but Listerine - Sabbath
Too pretty to be Grunge but I like it.
Easily in the top 10 one of the best albums in grunge music
Bought this before they got big. Great surprise.V 1 Comment
The first full album I heard and one of my favorites! I just like this slightly more than ten.
With songs like Sliver, Molly's Lips, Aneurysm, Been a Son this should be way higher than 28th.
This is a underrated album by Anthrax and yes this is a grunge album but its also a metal album its like Alice in Chains - christangrant
Listing to it now, had to vote for it because its so under voted, fantastic album with Layne Staley on vocals. - superluke1000
Really underrated, in my opinion it belongs to top 5, but not first. Had to vote it because it was 21st.
This IS the best GRUNGE ALBUM OF ALL TIME its just so unknown that is didn't even appeared in this list wich is a big shame! To me its inconciveble that Mother Love Bone is in sixth place and Above not on the list SHAME! People go listen to mad season's Above album, with layne Staley on vocals ROCKING THE BEST SONGS IN he's CARREAR.V 2 Comments
This should be waay higher! Every song is great. They were one of the big bands of the 90s for this album "alone"!
Must be higher than 38
Should be higher, not one of the most well-known grunge bands, but this album in particular has some really great stuff on it
For those wondering why this album is on this list and how KISS are grunge, It was basically an attempt to cash in on the grunge movement however it was canceled because Kiss wanted to do a reunion tour with the original lineup, the album was later released later due to bootleg copies existing and being passed around. Although ironically, this came out in 1997 the year that Grunge died. - christangrant
Since when was KISS grunge?
This album is them playing Grunge, It was basically an attempt to cash in on the grunge movement however it was canceled because Kiss wanted to do a reunion tour with the original lineup however the album was released later due to bootleg copies existing. - christangrant
They may have moved on from grunge a long time ago, but 3 fifteen year old Aussie kids who were fans of the genre back in the day could pump out a Nirvana meets Rage Against The Machine album better than people twice their age nowadays.
I just can't believe back in 1997 this was maroon 5. What happened to them? Their two latest albums, Overexposed and V, suck. I wish they would go back to their old style.
I saw what you did and I know who you are.
