    Basically, I'm asking for bands with a grunge feeling, that aren't really grunge. I don't care if you list post grunge bands, or bands that just sound like it. List as many as you can, and add links if you can.

    I'm guessing if I say Nirvana, I'll sound obvious and facepalm worthy?

    I know they sound extremely grunge like but theyve considered themselves a Alt rockband.

    I can't guarantee they are actually grunge, but
    in my Itunes library it says Soundgarden are Grunge

    Silverchair!!!! They aren't so grungy now, but they used to be and are like... totally awesome!

    You should checkout the last.fm list of grunge artists. I've just given it a quick glance through and they seem to list quite a few hard-rock artists as grunge, but I guess a few of them sort of drift between the two genres or moved away from grunge.


    Edit: Oopsie.. Grunge is a sub-genre of hard-rock. Silly me [​IMG]

    Alice in Chains and Soundgarden are my old grunge stand-bys. Occasionally Pearl Jam will pop in for a bit. I loves the grunge. A few Stone Temple Pilots songs have that same feel, but I wouldn't classify them as grunge.
