Default Screaming Trees.

I'm loving this band. A grungy outfit incorporating bits of psychedelica who produced music from 1985 through to 1996.

These guys belong in the B-List thread. They were highly regarded but never caught fire the way Soundgarden and Nirvana did. I guess they are a band that falls alongside the likes of Meat Puppets and such.

"Nearly Lost You" was probably their most well known hit, so if you want to check them out, thats a good one to download. I'll also throw in my two cents and recommend "All I know" and "Shadow Of The Season.

So I'm going to say if you enjoy Soundgarden you'll enjoy these guys.

Vocalist Mark Lanegan sings in a similar style to Cornell although sounding different in actual tones.

Some may know Lanegan from his solo work and QOTSA.

This needs a bump/first post.

Amazing band, even if you absolutely hate grunge (and they were the grunge side of grunge). Not afraid to stick out as "the ugly kids on the block." Mark Lanegan is a fantastic vocalist and deserves more appreciation for his works.

I'm listening to Dust now and realizing that it may be the best alternative rock album of the nineties.

Yeah they were an all round great band. Mark Lanegan is one of my favourite vocalists and the Conners brothers displayed some brilliant musicianship.

Best album has to be Sweet Oblivion, it has all the great tracks like Julie Paradise, Dollar Bill and Nearly Lost You. Dust is nearly just as good.

I have 'Sweet Oblivion'. I played it once. That tells you what I think of them!

I haven't heard any other songs besides 'Other Days And Different Planets', which is superb.

Any good song recommendations?

Sorry to say they were never my favorite grunge band. I didn't hate them, but they weren't great. To call them "b-list" is accurate, I guess.

Nothing really stands out about them, as far as I can remember. Not to change the topic, but my favorite 'overlooked grunge band' (not counting the Melvins, of course) is Tad.

They really weren't that great. It is amazing that anybody could even begin to compare the insane mediocrity of a band like this with the likes of Nirvana.

It's awesome that you found another thread to troll. Nice try. But this time you're just plain wrong. It's rather obvious you haven't heard anything of the Trees or Lanegan's, because the music is incomparable to Nirvana.
