Top 5 Alice in Chains songs?

AIC was and still is one of my favorite bands. Their music and lyrics are so raw and I totally feel their music. I know there must be a lot of other people here who like them, so go ahead and list your top 5 Alice in Chains songs. Mine are:

-Would?
-Down in a Hole
-Grind
-Rooster
-Man in the Box

Ah, I still love AIC, too. Dirt is one of my "If You Could Only Have 3 CD's On A Deserted Island" choices.


No order:

1. Hate to Feel -> Angry Chair -> Would? (I always play these three together, no matter what)

2. What the Hell Have I

3. Got Me Wrong

4. Nutshell

5. Them Bones


Amazing band...

My kind of thread! It's good to see some fellow AIC fans. All the people I know have heard of them, but don't listen to them. I thought I was the only AIC fan left.


1. Sea of Sorrow
2. Down in a Hole
3. Would?
4. Dirt
5. Nutshell

No way man. There are still a bunch of us around. I'm just glad I got to see them live once. I saw them open for Ozzy when the bands were promoting No More Tears and Dirt. It was a great show! Layne was in a wheelchair due to a broken foot (leg?), but he still rocked. He even stood up to sing several songs. A night I'll never forget.

Off topic tangent over...

Honorable mention to Junkman, Would?, and Dem Bones. On any given day they might make the list. But today, they don't.

Anybody here listen to Jerry Cantrell's album?

I thought it was very good. His voice actually sounds similar to Layne Staley's.

I've listened to a couple of songs and they're pretty good. Jerry also sang on a lot of AIC's songs, that's probably where you hear the similarities.

Jerry Cantrell's solo releases are both spectacular. I like Boggy Depot a little bit more than Degradation Trip : Volumes 1&2, but Degradation Trip sounds ALOT like what I think AIC would make if they made some more albums after 1995.

Would
Grind
