Favorite Grunge Albums

Postby jon » February 8th, 2020, 10:37 pm

I've been meaning to start this, as I've been loving Green River and Mudhoney's albums. Green River "Dry to the Bone/Rehab Doll" is fantastic. And I've been digging a lot of Mudhoney's albums like "Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge" for example.

Big fan of Screaming Trees here. It's cooler to prefer the '80s stuff or Dust, but Sweet Oblivion is my favorite. Also love Tad's 8-Way Santa and its wonderfully horrible original cover.

I'll do a top 10. I'm gonna limit it to one album per artist. Otherwise, Alice In Chains would dominate this list. In no particular order:

Alice In Chains- Tripod
Nirvana- In Utero
Soundgarden- Superunknown
Pearl Jam- Ten
Mudhoney- Superfuzz Bigmuff Plus Early Singles
Screaming Trees- Sweet Oblivion
Love Battery- Dayglo
Mother Love Bone- Mother Love Bone
The Melvins- Gluey Porch Treatments
Sub Pop 200

I understand the Viewpoint, but the grunge bands I listed as well as a lot of other great posters listed were underground grunge bands that themselves didn’t care to be popular. There’s no way around Nirvana being part of taking down hair metal which I liked a lot of. But having said that I’d rather listen to about 50 underground death metal and grind core bands over hair bands that were bo5$ going on at the same time in the late 80’s. If nirvanas success helped bring that underground metal music accessible to a lot of people than its well worth what happened. Having said that I was never first in line to get Tickets to see STP, Soundgarden. I think a lot of what I’m talking about is underground grunge. And Pearl Jam is actually pretty good some of their albums
