When grunge meets southern rock. Check out their cover of Simple Man. It made me cry the first time! ^u^

29 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

I do like Hole and Courtney Love is a great songwriter I never found her to be a great singer but that is just my opinion. - PewPewAssassin

Never in a million years should this band have been added to this list! I'm so disappointed that it is here!

The definition of grunge along side nirvana

I really love Courtney Love she was so pretty and now is older but she's still doing the most awesone music for me if Kurt Cobain could be alive they could be the most beautiful couple among the World

37 Collective Soul Collective Soul Collective Soul is an American rock band originally from Stockbridge, Georgia. Now based in Atlanta, the group consists of lead vocalist Ed Roland, rhythm guitarist Dean Roland, bassist Will Turpin, drummer Johnny Rabb and lead guitarist Jesse Triplett.
38 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.

39 Saint Asonia Saint Asonia Saint Asonia is a Canadian rock band consisting of former Three Days Grace frontman Adam Gontier, Mike Mushok, Corey Lowery, and Rich Beddoe.
40 Skin Yard

Very very underrated group. Lyrically they were ahead of their time if you listen to the song "Skins In My Closet" he talks about skins in his closet in which he's referring to the different clothes he has in his closet and comparing to his different personalities or moods depending on what he wears for that particular day.. You have to be a musical genius to orchestrate this into a song... Just look up the lyrics for this song on Google and you will see this genius poetry word for word..

RIP Ben McMillan... :( - Kfox101
