11 Greatest Grunge Albums

11 Greatest Grunge Albums

The Mercury News out of the Bay Area has listed what they believe to be the 11 greatest grunge albums.  I read this list and article with great interest considering the majority of what I listen to was released during the golden era of grunge.

Here is their list.

  1. "Nevermind," Nirvana
  2. "In Utero," Nirvana
  3. "Ten," Pearl Jam
  4. "Dirt," Alice in Chains
  5. "Vs.," Pearl Jam
  6. "Temple of the Dog," Temple of the Dog
  7. "Core," Stone Temple Pilots
  8. "Sweet Oblivion," Screaming Trees
  9. "Singles (Original Soundtrack)," various artists
  10. "Bricks Are Heavy," L7
  11. "Badmotorfinger," Soundgarden

The Mercury News did a great job.  Every album on thier list is spun by me on a regular basis except for their selections from Screaming Trees and L7.  In fact, if I were to compose my favourite 10 grunge albums, I'd have an eerily similar list.  I'm spinning Dirt from Alice in Chains right now and it's a complete coincidence, I swear!
