    Tough. Between Soundgarden and AiC for me. Probably go with AiC by a hair. Nirvana is also overrated. Good band, but overrated.

    Soundgarden is the most talented of the choices, but Nirvana is my favorite.

    Re: favorite grunge band?

    Everyone's going to have thier favorites but imo the single best album released from this genre is Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger. It's brilliant from beginning to end and the rerelease with the SOMMS EP is just even more awesomeness.

    Can't really go wrong with any of those choices, but I went with STP.

    Soundgarden, but that one Mad Season album is amazing.

    And how did Mudhoney get left off this poll?

    The only band on that list I can't listen to is Alice In Chains. I have to change the station when that stuff comes on. I voted for Soundgarden, then would probably list Pearl Jam as second with Nirvana in a close third and STP in fourth by a fair amount.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Very, very solid album. Superunknown as well. I'm a fan of Louder than Love as well, but that's not for everyone. A slight difference in some of the other Soundgarden stuff.

    Voted Alice in Chains... Listen to their songs the most. Agree with people who say Nirvana is a good band, but slightly overrated

    That's too bad. They have a lot of good stuff, and unfortunately the radio stations never play the best stuff (nothing different from other bands though). Rooster, while a decent song, is overplayed and not even close to their best song (my opinion).
