Top Ten Reasons Why Soundgarden Was the Greatest Grunge BandNuMetalManiak
The Top Ten
I think Chris Cornell has amazing vocals, but my sister things he sounds like a wannabe Christian pop singer. At the same time though, she says that about everyone that me and my dad thing is a good singer and half of the music she listens to doesn't even use real singers it uses the vocaloid robot things.
I think Chris Cornell is one of the best songwriters, guitar players, and singers ever not only because his huge solo career, but also with soundgarden, audioslave, and temple of the dog, but also his deep soothing voice and amazing words
Chris Cornell's vocal abilities outshine (no pun intended) other vocalists during the 90s. He hit some amazing high notes in some of the songs (same ones mentioned above in fact). - NuMetalManiak

My favorite grunge band is Alice In Chains, and trust me they also have metal in their music. Even more than Soundgarden in some ways. Songs like " Man In The Box", " We Die Young", " Them Bones", Dam that River", Grind", " Junkhead" just to name some that sound like metal. Hell in the big 4 of grunge bands ( Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, and Alice In Chains) AIC is the most metal sounding. - RustyNail
Actually Alice In Chains Was More Metal Than Soundgarden Even Though I Hear Some Of Metal In Their Music,However I Think Soundgarden Was More Hard Rock Than Metal. - FettiMC
Albums like Badmotorfinger and Ultramega OK show some of the most metal-sounding songs ever, like Slaves and Bulldozers, Jesus Christ Pose, and Beyond the Wheel. - NuMetalManiak
Soundgarden was one of the earliest two grunge bands, the other was the short-lived Green River. - NuMetalManiak
So Many Amazing Artists Never Got Grammys To The Fact That They Really Don't Mean Anything. - FettiMC
Awards Are Nothing! The Who, Led Zeppelin, AND Queen Never One Any Grammys! - BeatlesFan1964
Evident most in the "Down on the Upside" album. - NuMetalManiak
Guys, just listen to Applebite. Do it. Now. - MarianasPilots
