Don't Follow. Second place isn't even close.
For me this is like choosing between my children but I heard Rooster recently after listening to Jerry break the song down and what it meant to him and hit really hit me hard.
Sunshine and confusion are WAY underrated though. Sunshine, for me, is a perfect, spotless guitar solo. One of my favorites of all time even though it’s simple. Jerry knows exactly how to play a concise, meaningful, guitar solo.
Honorable mention to Private Hell. What a gut punch. That album is really among their best.
Oh but Junkhead...
Did I say this was like choosing between kids?
It's a 3 way tie between ...
I Stay Away
... depending on my mood/day.
One of my top favorite bands so its so hard to choose and of course many have already been mentioned. I will say that I feel like these 2 songs really nail for me what AIC is all about
Junkhead and Frogs
Frogs is just soooo cool!
Junkhead in particular is one of the heaviest and most powerful songs I think I have ever heard. Its a perfect amalgamation of Jerry's uber heavy tones and riffs with Sean's drumming (particularly those cymbal crashes) making it that much more heavy. Then you have what may be one of the greatest, most genuine vocal performances ever from Layne. You can hear the agony in his voice...he is singing his story, his life, his torment. I always have mixed feelings when I hear that song...rocks so hard, but very sad too.
I picked "Them Bones", but could easily have picked 1/2 dozen others.
I'm also surprised "Got Me Wrong" and the rest of Sap aren't getting more attention here.
"A Little Bitter" is also another great song that is sort of off the radar.
Rotten Apple is amazing
No. I don't think like that, it seems really childish.
Really Cant go wrong with anything from AIC. One of my favorite bands of all time.
Hadnt seen the video for Rooster in a very long time. Powerful stuff.
If I gotta choose, I'm saying Man In The Box.
I used to sing the high part in my old band. Sometimes I could could hit the high chorus vocal on "jesus", sometimes I'd fail. Lol it was directly proportional to alcohol intake. Plus, I was playing bass in the band, which isn't my strongest suit.
Nailed it. I came to make basically the same point.
Guys I forgot about Shame in You. Whaattt a song. Unbelievable melody and feel in that song.
Man, AIC was the best. (Not that I don’t love some of the new stuff)
My 7th grade soundtrack was basically Heaven Beside You and Over Now.
Alice In Chains Unplugged was the first album I learned how to play from start to finish.
Dam that River!
This would be my first choice, as well.
God Am is my favorite.
There is something so heavy about the music and lyrical content of that song. Also, knowing that Layne was deep down the downward spiral by that time and that he was basically becoming a shell of himself makes it all the more amazing. It’s almost painful to listen to.
It genuinely moves me anytime I hear it.
One of my favorite bands. I love so many of their songs, but "No Excuses" is special to me.
"You my friend, I will defend. And if we change, well, I'll love you anyway". Gets me right in the feels.
