What do you think is the greatest ever grunge band?
And for anyone who asks, I'm not counting Sonic Youth or Smashing Pumpkins as grunge
If we're talking about influence and impact, I'll have to go for Nirvana. I don't consider myself a fan at all though... I like 2 songs.
If it's about personal preference, I'm not that keen on any of them. Uh... I liked some of Jerry Cantrell's solo material.
Personally, I like nirvana.
Argh! Soundgarden or Stone Temple Pilots!
Alice in Chains, then Nirvana.
Nirvana for importance.
Pearl Jam for personal preference.
I apologise for not including The Toadies, should have had them instead of L7
Those bands sound too different to be under one stlye imo. A nirvana song like 'teen spirit' is probably the style most people associate with grunge and is also void of musical talent, unlike most of the other bands on that list. Give me some Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Temple of the Dog or AIC (in that order) any day.
Nirvana, the quintessential grunge band, followed by Pearl Jam
Not a massive fan of grunge music but I thought I'd reply anyway:
In terms of impact on the music scene: Nirvana
In terms of personal preference: STP ('Core' and 'Purple' are both great albums) and Soundgarden (massive Chris Cornell fan).
Personal preference - Alice in Chains.
Soundgarden, Screaming Trees, Temple of the Dog.
