Best Grunge Songs of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Leash - Pearl Jam

Ultimate 90s feeling and great vocals

42 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.

43 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..

44 Paper Cuts - Nirvana
45 Nearly Lost You - Screaming Trees

My favorite band! they have so many great songs, this is one of them, but also halo of ashes, caught between, who lies in darkness, no one knows, winter song, witness, ah so many! in my dreams they are together again and come to Argentina. I love mark lanegan...

this band should be in the top ten. and why the stone temple pilots aren't there too? such a shame. plush is such a powerful song

This song should really be in the top ten. Screaming trees is a great band! - Imreallyboredrightnow

47 1979 - The Smashing Pumpkins
48 Come On Down - Green River

Well known songs like teen spirit are great, but this one is a real forgotten gem. - qaz9999

49 Sea of Sorrow - Alice in Chains
50 Rearviewmirror - Pearl Jam

Brilliant song, best of Pearl Jam's Vs. Album by far and one of not only their best songs, but one of grunge's best, deserves be up much higher on the list.

Best song by far personally I did something I will never forget that song gave me that inspiration..

Simply put, the best Pearl Jam song.

51 Drain You - Nirvana

By far best lyrics on nevermind saw him perform this 3x in my life and best song he ever did live.

The way song opens makes you love it.My favorite Side-B song of Nevermind.
And the best part..."I Like you"

52 Fake It - Seether
53 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.
