Default New Grunge Thread

I don't see the point in digging up the old one, so here's a new Grunge Thread. Here, I'll late post the links of the best album by each member of the big four bands of grunge once I have 15 posts.

Here we can discuss any grunge , like Superunknown vs. Badmotorfinger, your opinion of the fifth best grunge band, Nirvana's HOF induction and the booing at Courtney, anything.

I've also included a poll for the vocalists. It's obvious Nirvana would win a best band poll, and best album was done before. So, here's a poll that's all about the big four vocalists? Who's your fave? My vote goes to Chriss Cornell, because he can go high and low and sideways. He's got a lot of voices so it's hard for me to decide on which voice's my fave.

That's a tough one! They're all great. I just watched the Grunge episode from the Metal Evolution series and there's some footage of Alice In Chains performing on the Clash Of The Titans tour in 1991 and Layne Stayley's voice is incredibly powerful, wish i could have seen them live. Did see them with their new singer a couple of months ago and they're amazing still, William's voice fits so well with Jerry.

I think you mean Kurdt.

I went with Layne. Got a solo acoustic Cornell though that is amazing.

I saw them live in 1993 and i have to say it was one of the most disappointing shows. I am not sure why, could have had something to do with the fact that Suicidal Tendencies were supporting and blew them off the state. Funny things is that even though I was an Alice In Chains fan and not an ST fan, I saw Suicidal Tendencies again in 1996 at their own show and they blew the crowd back into the lobby they were so good. So i knew their support show was no fluke. Come to think of it, I am pretty sure 1996 was also the year Layne Stayley died.

Having said that Alice in Chains were/are an amazing band, its just that Layne's apathy really dragged the vibe down that night. The funny thing is they they were playing on the very same stage that I had seen Nirvana play on nearly two years earlier and even though Kurt Cobain had apathy and substance abuse issues to rival Layne's, it did not carry through their performance which was a rather cathartic experience.

Anyway as far as the poll goes, i would have to say Chris Cornell, just far the fact that he has such dynamic range, each has his qualities
but Chris is definitely more versatile.

What do you think about Cobain?
Do you think he would to as great stuff as he did if he would be alive now?

Alice in Chains is winning for a reason.
