Best Grunge Albums Ever


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Mother Love Bone - Mother Love Bone

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.

22 Sixteen Stone - Bush

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.

This is one of the best grunge albums that could easily compete with the big four of grunge! Listen to Little things, Comedown, Machinehead, Body...

23 Live Through This - Hole
24 Foo Fighters - Foo Fighters
25 Dry As A Bone/Rehab Doll - Green River
26 Jar of Flies - Alice In Chains

I love this album so much it should be higher

27 Push - Gruntruck
28 Vitalogy - Pearl Jam

The first full album I heard and one of my favorites! I just like this slightly more than ten.

29 Sound of White Noise - Anthrax

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

30 Mad Season - Above

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.

31 Houdini - Melvins

Should be higher, not one of the most well-known grunge bands, but this album in particular has some really great stuff on it

32 Razorblade Suitcase - Bush
33 Bricks Are Heavy - L7
34 Siamese Dream - The Smashing Pumpkins
35 Mirror Ball - Neil Young
36 Sweet Oblivion - Screaming Trees
37 Blur - Blur
38 Unplugged in New York - Nirvana
39 Carnival of Souls: The Final Sessions - KISS

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

40 Frogstomp - Silverchair

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.
