Top 10 Most Important Albums in Grunge Music HistoryBoredJeff02 This is my final list. These albums are important to Grunge music.
The Top Ten
Also there was a typo with the list. It was supposed to be "Most Important Albums in Grunge Music History." - BoredJeff02
Their debut album. - BoredJeff02
Ok seriously this is not the most important Grunge album because this only popularized the genre it didn't create it the album that created Grunge should be number 1 - christangrant
Really, didn't "originate" the genre? Then why isn't something by Chuck Berry or Little Richard the most important rock album? Or something by Frank Sinatra the most important pop album?
This album DIDN'T create Grunge and The Beatles didn't invent ROCK. This album isn't important to the genre it's overrated as hell. - BoredJeff02
Popularized the genre didn't create it stop thinking that please. It's just as bad as people claiming Black Sabbath created Heavy Metal. - BoredJeff02.
Popularized the genre. - BoredJeff02
Quite as well popularized it. - BoredJeff02
Did not expect to see this album so high up. But anyways, thanks for not putting Nevermind at #1. Also I added Badmotorfinger because that was Soundgarden's breakthrough album. I suggest you listen to it if you like Superunknown. - cjWriter1997
Important for influencing Nirvana no matter how overrated they are. - BoredJeff02
Also popularized grunge. - BoredJeff02
1985 - it was the very FIRST grunge record. It's an EP and not an album but I guess it counts in the context of this list. This EP was also the debut release by Green River. - Metal_Treasure
So Facelift is in the top 10 and this isn't even on the list? - jack2244
For being the first Grunge supergroup album. - BoredJeff02
Without Green River, grunge wouldn't have existed.
This should be number one since this is the first grunge album - christangrant
This was in 1990 but Green River released an EP in 1985 (Come On Down) which was the first grunge release ever. - Metal_Treasure
This was Soundgarden's first and only #1 album on the Billboard 200 charts.
TAD are criminally underrated.
Overlooked grunge classic!
"Louder Than Love" and "Superunknown" are higher and this album isn't? I don't get it.
Superunknown is better but this album is more important. - BoredJeff02
1986. The second release in grunge history is a compilation album by these 6 bands, hence the album title. The album contains multiple tracks by these 6 bands. It was a low-budget project and band members recall that each band was given four hours of studio time. - Metal_Treasure
The Offspring may sound a little bit like Nirvana on this album, but that doesn't make this album or this band grunge.
Wrong list to include this album.
Coincidentally, this album came out the day Kurt Cobain was found dead.
The Offspring? Grunge? Really?
I know it's obvious they're pop punk and I don't know why people keep voting for this album in particular. - BoredJeff02V 3 Comments
Self explantory. - BoredJeff02
This was a very immportnat album in grunge history - christangrant
Even though I'm not a fan of STP this album was somewhat important to Grunge music. - BoredJeff02
