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.

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.

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).

Grunge was never classed as a style as such, more as a grouping of the Seattle music scene at the time, each of those bands have their roots in punk, metal, anything really.

Then a few other bands got classed in the grouping outside of Seattle, e.g Stone Temple Pilots
