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. - BoredJeff02

2 Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden

It's good for Grunge beginners. - BoredJeff02

3 Everlong - Foo Fighters

Listen to the lyrics and you'll see why it's ranked so high. - BoredJeff02

4 Alive - Pearl Jam V 1 Comment
5 Even Flow - Pearl Jam V 1 Comment
6 Them Bones - Alice in Chains
7 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

8 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. - BoredJeff02

9 Fell on Black Days - Soundgarden

Good if you're new to Grunge music. - BoredJeff02

10 Lithium - Nirvana

The Contenders

11 Rooster - Alice in Chains

Another good song for Grunge beginners. - BoredJeff02

12 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

13 Spoonman - Soundgarden

Good for Grunge beginners and Soundgarden beginners. - BoredJeff02

14 Touch Me I'm Sick - Mudhoney V 1 Comment
15 Zero - Smashing Pumpkins
16 Remedy - Seether

Post- Grunge but still counts I guess. - BoredJeff02

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
