I don't know if they'll get on the list due to their name, but they are a great all female Grunge band that you should really listen to. - LoganRuckman

Layne Staley said it himself, it was his favorite band out of Seattle. - Gruunge

I have heard it and I like the lyric carries the music. The idea is strong like caffeine.

53 Mind Funk

Best ever!

54 Rein Sanction
55 Therapy? Therapy? Therapy? is an alternative metal band from Northern Ireland. The band was formed in 1989 by guitarist–vocalist Andy Cairns from Ballyclare and drummer-vocalist Fyfe Ewing from Larne, Northern Ireland.
56 Seether Seether Seether are a South African hard rock band founded in May 1999 in Pretoria, South Africa. The band originally performed under the name Saron Gas until 2002, when they adopted the Seether name.

Seether deserves to be mentioned in the top ten of this list. They have great chemistry, and Shaun Morgan has a great voice, and they all know how to write songs just as well as Vedder or Cobain, it is as simple as that. Seether should be legendary, but are being held down due to their similariaties with other bands that came before them.

59 Drowning Pool Drowning Pool Drowning Pool is an American Alternative Metal band formed in Dallas, Texas in 1996. The band was named after the film The Drowning Pool.

Okay I'll admit bodies might not be the most pleasant to listen to, but if you give the rest of their songs a shot these guys get a lot better. Although don't listen to anything that was released after 2002. The band isn't the same without Dave.

These guys are too heavy to be Grunge.

60 Veruca Salt

67? Should have been in top 20, easy.

Highly underrated
