i agree that all these bands deserve mention, but it's a real shame that Dino Jr doesn't make an appearance on this list.

All aside, Alice in Chains was the best grunge band hands down. There is a level of intellectualism in their music that only Soundgarden could have pretended to, nonetheless, AIC did it best. Nirvana be damned.

Anyone who says that any of these bands is “underrated” obviously wasn’t around in the mid 90s. Alice In Chains is my favorite of the bunch.

No TAD? They toured Europe twice with Nirvana and were the best, in my opinion.

Congrats, Mojo. You are the first I've heard to consider The Pixies as "Grunge".... No. Nope. And no. Especially having Nirvana number 1 when Kurt frequently confessed to "trying to write songs like the Pixies did", lol

Pearl jam is more influential then Nirvana. Eddie vedder's voice is imitated by many bands today. Also other modern day bands would copy Eddie's flannel stain. But who sounds like Kurt Cobain. Honestly nobody does. bush lead vocalist, Gavin Rossdale, attempted to impersonate Nirvana's sound, but ended up sounding like an average grunge singer from Nirvana's age. Eddie took the sound from metal and rock and changed it into something new, which changed the sound of rock and roll forever. Kurt cobains style isn't mimicked like Eddie's there for making them just alittle less influential, in my opinion.

Sonic Youth formed in the late 70s/early 80s. They are both pre and post-grunge, but I wouldn't classify them as a grunge band. Same with The Pixies and The Melvins. These bands certainly influenced grunge acts, but they shouldn't be classified as grunge when there are many other bands with a more pure grunge approach.

до Pearl Jam были Mother Love Bone, а до них были Green River. Mudhoney к ним никакого отношения не имеет.
