21 Blow Up the Outside World - Soundgarden

Great song

22 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

This is really great. Espesially with the Dave Grohl overdub.

25 Dumb - Nirvana

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

26 Bodies - Smashing Pumpkins
27 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

28 Touch Me I'm Sick - Mudhoney

Essential underground grunge. One of my favorite grunge songs period. Such a raw, garage sound with some crazy and humorous lyrics. It shows the punk roots of grunge. Early grunge groups like Mudhoney and the Melvins deserve more attention than they got.

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!

How the hell it's only at 32nd? It's much better than SLTS... - somekindofaguy

29 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

30 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!

31 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.

32 Them Bones - Alice in Chains

Good. Layne always sounded amazing, and this song is no exception - Lucretia

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

Great intro to a great song to a great album

33 All Apologies - Nirvana

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

34 Creep - Stone Temple Pilots
35 Porch - Pearl Jam
36 Honey Bucket - Melvins

What? There wasn't a single Melvins song on the list?! This song is amazing. A large portion of the songs on this list aren't even grunge.

Hands down the best Melvins song out there - Kfox101

Lol what he said

37 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..

38 Sliver - Nirvana
39 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.

Epic melody, pure emotion and raw power combined in one song.

Awesome period. 20 years 2day rip kurt

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/
