Top Ten Worst Grunge Bands

These Grunge Bands are awful..... I`m excluding post- grunge bands. So bands like Puddle of Mudd will not be on this list.

The Top Ten

1 Nickelback Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

They are literally the worst band ever. And Fred Kreuger looks like a hillbilly hopped up on meth.

Nickelback isn't grunge they are Post Grunge - christangrant

2 Stone Temple Pilots Stone Temple Pilots Stone Temple Pilots was formed in San Diego, CA in 1989. ...read more.

I doubt you've actually listened to any of their music. They did not outsell Nirvana or Pearl Jam, and they aren't a "poor man's Nirvana". Go compare the likes of Interstate Love Song and Plush to Dumb and Smells Like Teen Spirit, and then tell me who the Alice In Chains "wannabe" is. - Swellow

You don't know anything about grunge outside of Pearl Jam and Nirvana, do you? - SwagFlicks

I'm sorry, but most of these bands aren't grunge and ain't that bad. - Mumbizz01

Damn looks like we got quite a awful Grunge list here. I don't think I need to go on because SwagFlicks and Swellow would already sum up most of my points anyway.

3 Silverchair Silverchair Silverchair were an Australian rock band, which formed in 1992 as Innocent Criminals in Merewether, Newcastle with the line-up of Ben Gillies on drums, Daniel Johns on vocals and guitars, and Chris Joannou on bass guitar.

Silverchair is great.

Pretty self explanatory.

4 Bush Bush Bush are a British rock band formed in London, England in 1992. The band found their immediate success with the release of their debut album Sixteen Stone in 1994, which is certified 6× multi-platinum by the RIAA.

Bush aren't grunge. - Swellow

Their not that great for a Grunge band.

5 Audioslave Audioslave Audioslave was an American rock supergroup formed in Los Angeles, California, in 2001 and disbanded in 2007.

Chris Cornell is better in Soundgarden.

6 Nirvana Nirvana Nirvana was an American grunge band that was formed in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987. Nirvana disbanded after Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. The drummer of the band, David Grohl, went on to start the Foo-Fighters, an alternative rock band. ...read more.

Good but overrated.

They suck. The guitar is repetitive and also sucks, the lyrics are truly horrible, the drums are bad, and the vocals are horrendous. I don't think I've ever heard worse vocals in my whole life. He put no emotion into his singing and no pride in his work. They were trash, and I don't care for them at all.
The death of decent people is a sad occasion, and Kurt was no exception.
That doesn't change the fact that Nirvana sucked.

7 Candlebox

The rest of the bands on this list are pretty decent. There just aren't many bad bands from the grunge era to put on a list like this so as a result we see a lot of... pretty good bands on here.

Mediocre for Grunge standards.

Only one I agree on - Nonpointed

8 Air Supply

A soft rock duo, not grunge. - Nonpointed

Just awful.

9 Incubus Incubus Incubus is an American rock band from Calabasas, California. The band was formed in 1991 by vocalist Brandon Boyd, lead guitarist Mike Einziger, and drummer Jose Pasillas while enrolled in Calabasas High School and later expanded to include bassist Alex "Dirk Lance" Katunich, and Gavin "DJ Lyfe" Koppell; ...read more.

This is a nu metal band not a grunge band. - Nonpointed

Just downright awful!

Not grunge. - Swellow

10 Mudhoney Mudhoney Mudhoney is an American alternative rock band. Formed in Seattle, Washington in 1988 following the demise of Green River, Mudhoney's members are singer and rhythm guitarist Mark Arm, lead guitarist Steve Turner, bassist Guy Maddison and drummer Dan Peters.

Just awful music. Get pandered to in the press due to the singer's friendship with Kurt Cobain. Try listening to one of their albums. You won't get through 2 songs.

Why does this band exist? I will never know.

They're not grunge. - Swellow

The Contenders

11 Pearl Jam Pearl Jam Pearl Jam is a Grunge Rock Band formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. The band had comprised of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. ...read more.
12 Hole Hole Hole was an American alternative rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California in 1989 by singer and guitarist Courtney Love and lead guitarist Eric Erlandson.

After Kurt's unfortunate death in 1994 of April 5th, people decided to turn the gun on his wife, Courtney Love. I wouldn't say she killed him, or at least did it intentionally, but I've heard her music. She didn't kill Kurt, but damn, after hearing her music, I would be much obliged to say she did.

13 Mother Love Bone Mother Love Bone Mother Love Bone was an American rock band that formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1987. The band was active from 1987 to 1990. Frontman Andrew Wood's personality and lyrics helped to catapult the group to the top of the burgeoning late 1980s/early 1990s Seattle music scene.

I... have no words for this band.

14 Jane's Addiction Jane's Addiction Jane's Addiction is an American rock band from Los Angeles, formed in 1985. The band consists of Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Stephen Perkins and Chris Chaney.

Not that bad, but I wouldn't like them. - Swellow

Their not that great to be honest.

15 Foo Fighters Foo Fighters Foo Fighters are an American rock band, formed in Seattle in 1994. The band was founded by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl after the death of Kurt Cobain and the dissolution of his previous band.
