Favorite Layne Staley Era Alice in Chains Song – Readers Poll
On Aug. 22, 1967, the voice of Layne Staley entered this world. Sadly the late Alice in Chains is no longer with us, but he leaves behind a legacy of amazing songs featuring both powerful and melodic vocals. This Readers Poll asks you to name your favorite Layne Staley-era Alice in Chains song.
Staley and his bandmates first made their mark with 'We Die Young' off the 1990 album 'Facelift,' but they wouldn't truly break through at radio until 'Man in the Box' became a hit a year later. 'Facelift' also yielded the singles 'Bleed the Freak' and 'Sea of Sorrow.' Arguably Alice in Chains' finest album would follow as 'Dirt' dominated 1992 and 1993. 'Would?,' 'Them Bones,' 'Angry Chair,' 'Rooster' and 'Down in a Hole' all enjoyed success.
In 1994, the band issued the popular 'Jar of Flies' EP, which yielded 'No Excuses,' 'I Stay Away,' 'Nutshell' and 'Don't Follow.' 1995's self-titled collection unfortunately was the band's last major studio record, with 'Grind,' 'Heaven Beside You' and 'Again' all earning play. We'll complete our list with a few bonus cuts -- 'What the Hell Have I' from the 'Last Action Hero' soundtrack, 'Got Me Wrong' from the 'Clerks' soundtrack, 'Over Now' from their 'Unplugged' collection and 'Get Born Again,' the single from their 'Nothing Safe: Best of the Box' hits set.
