Top 60 Grunge Songs

Why 60? Because I tried a top 50 and needed to add 10 more essentials. Yes, I'm leaving off at least 50 quality tunes here, oh well.
1Alice In Chains
Nutshell

Most gorgeous, depressing song ever. Get it now.
2Pearl Jam
Release

As I've said in other places this will be played at my funeral.
3Soundgarden
Rusty Cage

Great intro riff. Great video as well.
4Nirvana
Smells Like Teen Spirit

Loved it, then got sick of it, now recognize it for what it is: one of the most influential songs in history.
5Screaming Trees
Dollar Bill

Phenominal quasi ballad from underrated band.
6Stone Temple Pilots
Plush

Pearl Jam ripoff? Absolutely. Great song? Check.
7Alice in Chains
Would?

Their greatest chorus
8Temple of the Dog
Hunger Strike

Cornell + Vedder = epic win
9Mad Season
River of Deceit

Staley + members of PJ = win. Haunting ballad
10Nirvana
About a Girl

Acoustic live version is probably the best
11Soundgarden
Room a Thousand Years Wide

Is my favorite Soundgarden song on certain days.
12Pearl Jam
Leash

Anthemic to the core.
13Stone Temple Pilots
Big Empty

Still remember the first time I heard the epic chorus.
14Temple of the Dog
Say Hello To Heaven

Cornell's scream in the final chorus is chill inducing
15Pearl Jam
Black

Simply a devastating song.
16Mother Love Bone
Stargazer

Great ballad, almost hair metalish.
17Hole
Doll Parts

Some say Cobain wrote this. In any event it's Courtney's best performance.
18Alice In Chains
Angry Chair

Great chorus, great song.
19Nirvana
Pennyroyal Tea

The best song on In Utero, by far.
20Soundgarden
Outshined

Being from Minnesota, I've always had a soft spot for the lyrics
21Screaming Trees
No One Knows

Most have never heard it. You Tube It now.
22Stone Temple Pilots
Crackerman

Arguably the best track on Core.
23Pearl Jam
Alive

5 + minutes of rule.
24Alice in Chains
Don't Follow

Song destroys me.
25Soundgarden
Fresh Tendrils

Probably the best song on Superunknown. You Tube It.
26Nirvana
Lithium

Simple yet seminal.
27Pearl Jam
Rearviewmirror

I gather speed from you fuckin with me.
28Stone Temple Pilots
Sex Type Thing

A song about date rape? Still rocks.
29Jessie
Paw

Grunge band from Kansas. It's about a dog. You Tube It.
30Alice in Chains
Bleed the Freak

Could be the best song off Facelift
31Soundgarden
Like Suicide

Epic.

Dive

Rare track, huge power chord greatness. You Tube It.

Call Me a Dog

Perfect vocals from Cornell on this ballad.
34Mudhoney
Touch Me I'm Sick

Influential and dirty.
