21 Radiohead Radiohead Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

One of my favourite bands ever. But doesn't get my vote, because although they are dark, murky and depressing, that doesn't make them a grunge band.

Radiohead is more alternative I think. And no, not everybody who listens to this band are pretentious

One of the best alt bands ever, but not grunge

Radiohead is not a grunge band. They are lame - Sabbath

22 Silverchair Silverchair Silverchair 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...

26 The 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.

27 Faith No More Faith No More Faith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1979. Before settling on their current moniker in 1983, the band performed under the names Sharp Young Men and later Faith No Man.

Why are they on here? Barely even Alternative

28 Hole Hole Hole 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!

35 Love Battery

Insanely underrated, their 1992 album Dayglo is one of the standouts of the genre, and it's really sad to see the band behind many that aren't even remotely related to grunge. Definitely check them out if you haven't already.
