Best Grunge Songs of All Time


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Blow Up the Outside World - Soundgarden Blow Up the Outside World - Soundgarden
22 Them Bones - Alice in Chains Them Bones - Alice in Chains

Awesome grunge song that happens to be featured in Grand Theft Auto SA

Great intro to a great song to a great album

23 Dumb - Nirvana Dumb - Nirvana

Dumb isn't very grunge but quite amazing in my opinion

24 Bodies - Smashing Pumpkins Bodies - Smashing Pumpkins
25 Spoonman - Soundgarden Spoonman - Soundgarden

This one's great, catchy and rhythmic masterpiece. Can't believe it's this low on the list! Should be top 5 at least!

26 Gone Away - Offspring Gone Away - Offspring

This is a punk band not a grunge band. Still good, but not grunge.

Never Put an Offspring song on this list. They are a terrible band, and in no way even a grunge band.

27 Creep - Stone Temple Pilots Creep - Stone Temple Pilots
28 Rape Me - Nirvana Rape Me - Nirvana

When I first got In Utero I loved Heart-Shaped Box, but each time it ended Rape Me played and it just started to sound amazing. My favourite song and it encapsulates grunge perfectly.

Amazing, pretty much any Nirvana song is. Them and Alice In Chains, absolutely AMAZING!

Honestly, its much more hard hitting than any song on this list. - PwnC0cktail

29 Porch - Pearl Jam Porch - Pearl Jam
30 Touch Me I'm Sick - Mudhoney Touch Me I'm Sick - Mudhoney

Mudhoney defined grunge before nirvana were even around! For there not to be a mudhoney song in the to 10 is wrong. They never reached the fame of nirvana or Pearl Jam, but the fuzz and anger are pure grunge

Such an amazing song. Pure grunge at its finest. Catchy, funny, and undeniably grungy. Should be much father up!

This is the underground grunge anthem

31 Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns - Mother Love Bone

Masterpiece! As all the rest of the songs here are brilliant, this is with no doubt my favorite of all times!

RIP Andrew

Hands down one of the best grunge songs ever written. It should at least be in the Top 10!

This song is the Stairway to Heaven of grunge

32 Lounge Act - Nirvana Lounge Act - Nirvana

One of the best songs ever! I really love it. Keep voting for it! You know that it's great. May writer Kurt Cobain Rest In Peace.

Listened to this so many times, can't stop loving it man. Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden and Pearl Jam made me. Rock on dudes m/

Hadn't found this gem until a few years ago.

33 All Apologies - Nirvana All Apologies - Nirvana

Great acoustic guitar from unplugged, but Nirvanas best acoustic song is DO Re MI; the last song kurt ever wrote.

34 Jesus Christ Pose - Soundgarden Jesus Christ Pose - Soundgarden

A very unique song, a masterpiece, and the music video is awesome, is a mix of metal and grunge that makes it their best song of the album Badmotorfinger

35 Burden In My Hand - Soundgarden Burden In My Hand - Soundgarden
36 About a Girl - Nirvana About a Girl - Nirvana

I'm not to crazy about the Bleach version but rather the MTV Live version. I love the song stripped down. It's somewhat soothing but nevertheless, the song itself is great! Love Kurt Cobain! RIP.

37 Leash - Pearl Jam Leash - Pearl Jam

Ultimate 90s feeling and great vocals

38 Everlong - Foo Fighters Everlong - Foo Fighters

I don't care what your list says, this is number 1!

Foo Fighters is a post-grunge band...

39 Glycerine - Bush Glycerine - Bush

How is this not in the top ten? Easily one of the top five grunge songs written, so moving, it's the perfect song!

Such a powerful song, Bush may not be my favorite band but they sure know how to write feelings into lyrics.

The simplicity of this song is just perfect.

40 Rusty Cage - Soundgarden Rusty Cage - Soundgarden

So under-voted in this list, that I can't believe! Go and listen this one - so good song with a hypnotic riffing and great lyrics & vocals. Even Johnny Cash made a cover of this one, that fact amlone tells a lot..
