Top 10 Most Underrated Grunge Albums

These are grunge albums that are often overlooked and pretty decent. If I missed one feel free to add it. I'll be excluding Bush, and The Smashing Pumpkins however. Bush is post- grunge, and Smashing Pumpkins isn't even close to Grunge at all. Hole will also be excluded for not being Grunge at least to me.

The Top Ten

1 Foo Fighters - Foo Fighters

The only Grunge album Foo Fighters made and it's pretty overlooked.

2 Louder Than Love - Soundgarden

A underrated but decent album.

3 Mad Season - Above Mad Season - Above

A underrated grunge side project band and this album is pretty kick ass to be honest.

4 No Sun Today - Grey Daze

Pretty damn underrated and solid. Not a single track is bad in my opinion.

5 Temple of the Dog - Temple of the Dog

An actual master piece. Hunger strike (the song) is the best but there is still a lot to offer outside of that track

Other than Hunger Strike I'd say it's pretty underrated.

6 Shine - Mother Love Bone

One of the most underrated Grunge albums ever.

7 Curb - Nickelback

Believe it or not Nickelback used to be a grunge band with their first album and their first album was pretty decent, nothing relatively unique but still pretty damn decent.

8 Invisible Lantern - Screaming Trees

Screaming Trees in general is pretty underrated with a majority of their albums.

9 Bleach - Nirvana

Pretty underrated compared to the overrated drivel of "Nevermind" to be honest.

The heaviest and best Nirvana album. Listen to “Negative Creep” and you’ll know what I mean. - awesomedp900

10 Mudhoney - Mudhoney

This list wouldn't be complete without this album to be honest.

The Contenders

11 Silverchair - Frogstomp

One of the best and heaviest grunge Albums you can find. Key word ONE.

They are an Aussie band and were only 14 when they released it which may have contributed to it being underrated in countries other than Australia.

Them being 14 gave the album this attitude which wasn't angsty to the point of it being whiney it had the right amount of aggression for the topics in the album.

It has many hits like Shade,Pure Massacre and the well know 'in Australia at least' Tomorrow

12 Live Through This - Hole
13 Dirty - Sonic Youth
