    Cornell and, if we're being honest with ourselves here, its not even close.

    1. Cornell
    2. Staley
    3. Vedder

    I can't imagine my friends back east invented this, but I haven't heard it anywhere else, they refer to Cornell's voice as "The Weapon".

    Don't think I've ever heard Dinosaur Jr described as grunge.

    I can't stand Eddie Vedder. Pearl Jam was always the posers of the grunge scene. They were the most studio out of all the grunge bands IMO

    Cornell had the most versatile singing voice but I like Kurt and Layne and their raspy scratchy voices.

    Wrong.

    PJ recorded Ten live.

    They've always used very little studio trickery on their records.

    Soundgarden albums, by contrast, were very studio polished.

    This is just an ignorant opinion

    They'e more traditional than the other grunge bands.. they wernt posing. They just pulled from more classic rock influence. Mainly from their guitarist who is amazing.

    I'm an artist and I don' have any tolerance for people shit talking on other artists. Grow up dumbass. You can dislike a band all you want... no need to be a prick about it.

    They were the biggest posers in that scene. It was known back in the day also.

    And I don't dislike pearl jam, they're my least favorite from that era. Their music was the most studio out of all the major bands.

    They sound pretty damn good live...

    Eddie Vedder was invited to perform at Cornell's funeral and they both gained fame being in Temple of the Dog together.

    Andrew Wood RIP. Way before his time.



    Cornell gets my vote.

    How does Andrew Wood still get so much love? MLB was a cockrock band and they sucked.


    Out of the four listed in the OP, the only answer I can give is Vedder is the one who doesn't belong. The other three were amazing in different ways.

    AIC has more grunge in them then any of the other bands including nirvana

    Listen to the Dirt album. It's grungy enough to make me want to kill myself. In a good way.

    I think the essence of the grunge music that originated in Seattle in the early 90's gets lost sometimes. Grunge was an off-shoot of punk rock with some metal undertones. Nirvana was much more grunge than the others.

    Yeah, I'm not even a huge Pearl Jam fan, but I've never heard a band play as flawlessly live as them.
