Top 10 Most Overrated Grunge Songs

Grunge as a whole isn't a bad genre. But it does a few overrated songs. These songs aren't bad but get too much attention. For this list I'll be excluding post- grunge bands so no songs from Seether or Foo Fighters will be on this list.

The Top Ten

1 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

Nirvana's made better songs than this and I'm kind sick of seeing it as number one on several best Nirvana songs lists. - SomePersonYouHate

2 Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden

Soundgarden's a decent band but this song really does get too much attention. - SomePersonYouHate

3 Black - Pearl Jam

A good song but it is kind of overplayed. - SomePersonYouHate

4 Man in the Box - Alice in Chains

Decent but still kind of overrated. - SomePersonYouHate

5 Plush - Stone Temple Pilots

It's probably their most popular song. Dead & Bloated and Creep are better songs from the same album, in my opinion. - cjWriter1997

Never been a STP fan but even fans of this band can probably agree with me that this song is overrated. - SomePersonYouHate

6 Alive - Pearl Jam

Decent but kind of overrated at the same time. - SomePersonYouHate

7 Come as You Are - Nirvana

Probably my favorite Nirvana song but I'll admit that it's overrated. - SomePersonYouHate

8 Even Flow - Pearl Jam

Pearl Jam has a few overrated songs this is no exception. - SomePersonYouHate

9 Lithium - Nirvana

Decent but I honestly prefer how Nirvana sounds on Bleach and In Utero to be honest. - SomePersonYouHate

10 Rooster - Alice in Chains

Slightly overrated but not as overrated as other songs on this list. - SomePersonYouHate
