A Bunch of Grunge Music CDs You Need to Check Out. If you’re a fan of Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, or any other grunge band, then you need to check out these CDs.

Alice in Chains- “Dirt”

Alice in Chains is one of the most successful and well-known grunge bands of all time, and their album “Dirt” is considered by many to be one of the defining grunge albums. “Dirt” was released in 1992 and immediately drew attention for its dark, heavy sound and lyrics that dealt with tough topics like addiction and abuse. The album was a huge hit, selling more than four million copies, and it remains one of Alice in Chains’ most popular albums today.

Nirvana- “In Utero”

Nirvana’s third and final studio album, In Utero, was released on September 14, 1993. Recorded in just two weeks, the album was intended to stripping away the polished sheen of their previous album, Nevermind. The result was a rawer, more abrasive sound that reflected the band’s growing dissatisfaction with their newfound success.

In Utero entered the Billboard 200 chart at number one and was certified five times platinum by the RIAA. It has since been ranked highly on lists of the greatest albums of all time by publications such as Rolling Stone and Pitchfork.

Pearl Jam- “Ten”

Pearl Jam’s “Ten” is one of the most iconic grunge albums of all time. Released in 1991, the album features some of the band’s most well-known songs, including “Alive,” “Even Flow,” and “Jeremy.” “Ten” helped to define the sound of grunge and cemented Pearl Jam as one of the genre’s most important bands.

Soundgarden- “Badmotorfinger”

“Badmotorfinger” is the third studio album by the American rock band Soundgarden, released on October 8, 1991, through A&M Records. The album achieved both commercial success and critical acclaim when it was first released, debuting at number 24 on the Billboard 200 and selling over two million copies in the United States by 1996. It has been certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

The album features some of Soundgarden’s most well-known songs, including “Rusty Cage”, “Outshined”, and “Jesus Christ Pose”. The latter two songs were released as singles, with “Outshined” peaking at number five on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and “Jesus Christ Pose” reaching number one. “Rusty Cage” was also included on the soundtrack to the film Singles.

Critical reception to “Badmotorfinger” was highly positive. AllMusic’s Steve Huey praised the album as a major creative breakthrough for Soundgarden, while many other reviewers felt that it built upon the promise of the band’s previous album, “Louder Than Love”. In retrospective reviews, multiple publications have placed “Badmotorfinger” among the best albums of 1991 and the best albums of Soundgarden’s career.

Stone Temple Pilots- “Core”

Stone Temple Pilots’ debut album, Core, is one of the defining albums of the grunge era. Released in 1992, the album features the band’s signature sound: a mix of heavy guitars and harmonized vocals. The album’s singles, “Sex Type Thing” and “Creep,” are two of the most iconic songs of the ’90s, and the album itself has been certified 8x platinum by the RIAA.
