Kendrickmuscfreaks Grunge Bands: Alice in Chains

Grunge…what the f is grunge really.

It was a label by a music writer in the late 80’s for Alternative bands

Who were Alice and Chains:

Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s, along with other Seattle bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden. The band was one of the most successful music acts of the 1990s, selling over 20 million albums worldwide,and over 14 million in the US alone. In 1992 the band’s second album, Dirt, was released to critical acclaim and was certified quadruple platinum. Their third album, Alice in Chains, was released in 1995 and has been certified double platinum. Both albums achieved No. 1 Billboard 200 releases. The band has had 14 top ten songs on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and nine Grammy Award nominations.

Of course the death of the lead singer put a halt to the band. While they never disbanded they went to ground for a few years. They came back with a new lead singer, who sounded near the same and have release a couple more good albums.
