Top 10 Songs to Get You Into Grunge

These are songs to get you or someone else into grunge. Generally your opinion might be different so I don't mind. If there's any song I forgot, add it.

The Top Ten

1 Man In the Box - Alice In Chains

Pretty good for Grunge beginners.

2 Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden

It's good for Grunge beginners.

3 Even Flow - Pearl Jam

No explanation required.

4 Them Bones - Alice in Chains
5 Outshined - Soundgarden

I'm surprised one of the most popular grunge songs from one of the pinnacle albums of grunge, wasn't on here already. This song is what made Soundgarden and overall made me love this band. Check this song out if you like any of these songs on this list. - cjWriter1997

6 Everlong - Foo Fighters

Listen to the lyrics and you'll see why it's ranked so high.

7 Alive - Pearl Jam

Eh... self explantory really.

8 Lithium - Nirvana
9 Come as You Are - Nirvana

One of Kurt Cobain's better songs and it's one of his only few songs where he attemps to write lyrics that make sense.

10 Honey Bucket - Melvins

One of the first "Grunge" bands. They influenced Kurt Cobain. This song from their 1993 album Houdini is loud and heavy and full of very distorted, grungy guitars. For those who want a more "unorthodox" grunge band, check this song out. - cjWriter1997

The Contenders

11 Fell on Black Days - Soundgarden

Good if you're new to Grunge music.

12 Rooster - Alice in Chains

Another good song for Grunge beginners.

13 Spoonman - Soundgarden

Good for Grunge beginners and Soundgarden beginners.

14 Touch Me I'm Sick - Mudhoney

Not sure if that's grunge.

15 Zero - Smashing Pumpkins
16 Remedy - Seether

Post- Grunge but still counts I guess.

17 Hunger Strike - Temple of the Dog

How could you forget this one? I consider this legendary especially concerning what the Temple of the Dog side project was about. - NuMetalManiak

That was supposed to say "considering" not concerning. I don't know why it said concerning there. - NuMetalManiak

18 Jeremy - Pearl Jam
19 1979 - The Smashing Pumpkins

This is probably one of their least grungy songs. If you want a more grunge feel with this band check out the song Zero or An Ode to No One. Much more fitting for grunge. - cjWriter1997

Not Grunge.

20 Dead & Bloated - Stone Temple Pilots

Not grunge either.

21 Glycerine - Bush

Not Grunge.

22 4th of July - Soundgarden
23 An Ode to No One - Smashing Pumpkins
24 Heart Shaped Box - Nirvana
