Though I believe Nirvana was better and more important, I would have to go with Alice in Chains-Would? I first heard it on the Singles soundtrack (great collection of songs). The ending of the song still gives me chills. Staley's vocal is incredible. What's your favorite?

rusty cage - soundgarden - badmotorfinger
/thread

although, johnny cash’s cover of the song is badass.

would no rain - blind melon - count as borderline grunge? if so, one of my favorite songs from the 90s.

I'm not picking a best grunge song ever b/c there are too many good ones to choose from, but I always felt this AIC song was so underrated...

River of Deceit is by Mad Season. This is the first song that came to my mind when I read the original post.

Interestingly enough, these guys were less interested in their image, vs being artistic.

You can't say Nirvana or AiC were begging for the Camera like David Lee Roth.
Oh, definitely, they were expressing real feelings/emotions, mostly dark and tortured....they were very reluctant stars...you don't see much of that today....

if there is a better heavy rock song from the 90's than this, I haven't heard it. Just crushing.

Soundgarden - Slaves and Bulldozers

poison is not metal. lemmy cries.
LMAO! I saw Poison open for Def Leppard back in my high school days.....then saw Poison again as the lead act with Warrant when they "made it big". Pretty good shows, but I get your point and concur! lol

I just recently took in Queensryche at the Hard Rock in Biloxi in 2018. GREAT show, but they weren't the original band members. The original lead, Goeff Tate, split off from the group. Unfortunately, because of this, Operation Mindcrime was not played....bummer for me as I dig that tune. All in all, a great time. I'd go see them again.....one of my favorite bands.

I saw this on the comments of Birth Ritual and thought of your post. As much as I love the song, I couldn't help but find it hilarious.
