    Default Best AIC song?

    Youtuber Rick Beato had a segment about what he thought was the best Alice in Chains song. Going through and listening to them all, it's hard to pick. Man in the Box, Rooster, Would?, Nutshell, Them Bones, Down in a Hole, No Excuses, I Stay Away, Angry Chair, and on and on.

    So if you are an AIC fan, maybe listen back through all the old cuts and see which one you think was their best. Best then, now, and in between. Their best work.

    Here's mine. It's hard to pick one.

     
    Nutshell

    Very tough but for me its between Them Bones and Am I Inside. But they have a lot of great material out there even the later albums without Staley are pretty damn great. All Secrets Known, It Aint Like That, Would?, Scalpel, and Choke are other great tracks.

    I've heard that about the later albums. I have heard very little of post-Layne AIC. What I've heard is good, but somehow I never brought myself to really listen.

    Some of the post Layne AIC stuff is money. I’m a HUGE AIC fan and I absolutely love the The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here album. Hollow, Stone, and Voices are excellent tracks. William Duvall, the new “front” man, is very talented but it’s really still about Jerry Cantrell. That dude is so talented, he’s such a great songwriter. If you like old AIC, you’ll probably like the newer stuff too. They’ve released several albums since Duvall has come onboard. Seriously though, YouTube Hollow or Stone you’ll dig it.

    As far as favorites from the older albums
    Facelift: We Die Young, It Ain’t Like That, Sea of Sorrow, Sunshine
    Dirt: Them Bones, Dam that River, Rooster, Down in a Hole, Would?
    Jar of Flies: No Excuses, Nutshell, I Stay Away
    Self Titled: Again, Grind, Heaven Beside You

    A “lost” song of there’s was on the “Last Action Hero” soundtrack called “What the Hell Have I”. It’s a total banger. Love it.

    I bought the the Last Action Hero soundtrack on CD back in the day just for that song.

    Tough to pick just one but that one, Nutshell and Junkhead probably my top 3.

    Also the Mad Seasons stuff might be my favorite stuff Layne ever did. Love that album from start to finish.

    That soundtrack is amazing, aside from AIC you got AC/DC, Fishbone, Megadeth, Tesla, Def Leppard, etc.

    Ok, I'll stop with the Dad jokes since I'm not even a Dad.

    To me Rooster is always the first one I go to, the story behind the song speaks to me. The video featuring Cantrell Sr. is, in my opinion, one of the better music videos out there regardless of band or genre. Aside from Rooster I like Nutshell and, even though it was more poppy, No Excuses. Really, the entire catalog is great, top-notch band that didn't get the props they deserved in the era.

    No problem. The others are great, too (The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here and Rainier Fog).

    No way to pick one, but I'm surprised no-one's mentioned "Would?" That would be up there.

    But if I have to single one out, I might have to go with "River of Deceit".

    Impossible to pick though. Too many good ones.

    I mentioned Would? One of my faves.
