Best Grunge Songs of All Time


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Do the Evolution - Pearl Jam
82 Again - Alice in Chains
83 I Stay Away - Alice in Chains

Another song with haunting lyrics on Layne Staley's battle with heroin addiction...

Definitely deserves a higher rating

I was once a smells like teen spirit kind of guy...

84 Tomorrow - Silverchair

Daniel Johns wrote this song when he was 16, and it's an absolute masterpiece. Mesmerising guitar solos are used to great effect, as well as John's powerful vocals. A great Australian classic, and a song that should never be forgotten.

Silverchair and their first album "Frogstomp" is the result of what grunge meant to these 3 young members at the time back in 1995. Actually not only for the 3 of them, but for all teenagers that time. "Tomorrow" might be a reflection to that generation and to the top bands such as Soundgarden, Nirvana and of course, Pearl Jam. I personally really like this song and shouldn´┐Ż't be forgotten by the grunge movement fans around the globe.

Great Song - Wait til' tomorrow!

85 River of Deceit - Mad Season

Far more unknown than the others on that list, but certainly a contender.

86 Schizophrenia - Sonic Youth
87 Lake of Fire - Meat Puppets V 1 Comment
88 Say Hello 2 Heaven - Temple of the Dog

Given the reason for the group and album this is a classic enduring song that transends categorization!

89 Wake Me - Grey Daze
90 Fell On Black Days - Soundgarden
91 Aneurysm - Nirvana
92 Last Kiss - Pearl Jam
93 Skeletal History - The Mark Lanegan Band
94 Big Empty - Stone Temple Pilots

One of the best songs from this decade. STP guitars are perfect in it's creativity.

95 Mind Your Manners - Pearl Jam
96 Take a Dive - Green River
97 Shine - Collective Soul

Must be in top ten, too much nirvana songs, they are the best but not the only one...

98 This is Shangrila - Mother Love Bone

This song is more grunge than many other songs on here. Love it and MLB is very underrated. "I'm trippin on it now, it brings me home again".

99 S***list - L7

How the hell is L7 not here? They had that real grunge feel!
