I have been a fan of Alice in Chains since the early 1990s. I was told by a friend to buy the album “Dirt” because it rocked. A few days later I heard “Rooster” on the radio and then I added the cassette to my list. Placed an order on Columbia House and a short time later, it arrived. I remember listening to Dirt side A and then side B and then I did it again. I was hooked immediatly. Soon after, CDs replaced cassette tapes and I bought “Facelift” and “Dirt” one summer day during a baseball game rain out. It was 1993, I was 13 and I needed my music, oddly enough, I also bought the 1968 classic, Night of the Living Dead on VHS that day.
So, now…26 years later I will unleash my top 5 favorite songs from Alice in Chains. I put the list on my person Facebook page earlier, but here it is with Youtube video to listen along.
Remember, these are my favorites. As a Facebook friend mentioned, all Alice in Chains songs have so much gravity. Yes, they do.
5. I Stay Away – Jar of Flies
4. Would? – Dirt
3. Heaven Beside You – Alice in Chains
2. Down in a Hole – Dirt
1 Rain When I Die – Dirt
