139. Alice in Chains
Although Alice in Chains has been pegged primarily as a Grunge band, of the slew of Seattle bands AIC may have been the one that drew more from the Heavy Metal set than the rest.  They were very successful, charting often despite gloomy material and a dirty Post Punk sound. Equally adept at acoustic performances, AIC was a favorite among many who followed the Alternative set.  It can’t be argued that Nirvana will lead the Grunge charge for the Hall, but it shouldn’t surprise anyone if Alice in Chains will follow them in if a couple of the other Grunge acts get in.

To the fans of the above artists, Alice in Chains is the only one who's fans couldn't imagine life without. They have grasped the mood of the 90's and of a generation and immortalized it. Nothing makes me feel better than listening to a sad AIC song. RIP LS
