Alice in Chains' debut album turns 30, so we're counting down Jerry Cantrell's 10 (5) sickest riffs



"Grunge" wasn't even a thing when Alice in Chains released their first album in 1990, but it marked the start of a new era of music.



#7 - Heaven Beside You (1995)
Quintessential AIC, although the source argues the MTV Unplugged version of the song is the best.


#6 - Check My Brain (2009)
This song brought the band back to mainstream rock and is often heard at sporting events, as per this OP's sports viewing habits.


#4 - Rotten Apple (1994)
Dark and haunting. The source calls it a "warm bath of acoustic beauty."


#2 - Them Bones (1992)
Did you know that Layne Staley improvised the "Ah!" sound heard throughout the song?


#1 - Man in the Box (1990)
The song that launched the band to stardom. With MTV playing the video, Facelift jumped from 166 to 42 on the Billboard charts. When will your faves??

ONTD, do you think we'll ever have a grunge revival?
