Easiest question I've seen all day. As far as musical talent, AIC. As far as lyrics, AIC. As far as not sucking? AIC.



Did I mention AIC is easily the best of these bands? No? Ok, AIC then!

Alice in Chains would be my preference.

It looks like all the pictures with which Hepcat illustrated this poll have been lost. I'll replace them with more modern video technology:

Alice in Chains



Nirvana



Pearl Jam



Soundgarden

Truthfully how/why Alice in Chains stands out so clearly from the other bands isn't obvious to me. Admittedly I like their name anyway.

Re: The battle for Seattle!

It's Soundgarden for me by a very large margin! Chris Cornell was, in my humble opinion, the greatest rock songwriter of the '90s. I was absolutely dumbstruck and heartbroken on hearing of his death - especially coming so soon after the loss of David Bowie.

Don't get me wrong: I happen to really love the other three bands in this poll. (My order of preference - after Soundgarden - would be Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Alice In Chains.) However... I must ask the question: What about Screaming Trees and Mudhoney??

You'll have to ask the dastardly feline. Maybe he'd never heard tell of Screaming Trees and Mudhoney when he put this poll together.

Me I'm wondering about the absence of the Fleetwoods, Ventures, Dave Matthews Band, Heart, Sonics, Queensrÿche, Foo Fighters, Modest Mouse and the Fleet Foxes.
