Multi group category today.  Dirt for me.  

#metoo but Nevermind is close. I never thought of the Melvins as grunge.

They’re a great band. Bullhead and Stoner Witch are great albums too. They have a killer show from the House of Strombo on YouTube, check it out.

Dirt never sees the light of day without Nevermind.  First and best.  Changed the world.  The definition of seminal.

Any given day it could vary between Dirt and Superunknown with Ten and Nevermind just behind.

Some decent stuff came out of grunge for sure,  but I’d give what we got out of it back if this era in music never happened at all.  It cleared the way for the garbage we are subjected to today.

I wouldn't have said this at the time, but now it's Dirt.  Superunknown should be getting more love here too.

I went to a Guns N Roses concert back in the early '90's in San Diego.  Soundgarden was the warmup band, I enjoyed their show better than Guns N Roses.

That's all I have to say about that

I voted nirvana. Pearl Jam would be second, but I hate the song Jeremy.

I was more into the weezers and radio heads and r.e.m. Of the world.

Huge Queensryche fan myself. When things sort of changed and grunge became popular. I liked that stuff too.

I really liked candle box. I think it was their self titled album. I went through several of those.

Went with Dirt.  I know that Nevermind and Ten are the biggest albums from the group and that they changed music.  However, I just never was a huge Nirvana guy and I Focking hate Pearl Jam.

Had to go with Dirt from the choices given. 

Shoulda had Everclear's "Sparkle and Fade" as an option.
