A to Z Challenge: D is for Dirt

Alice in Chains.  I have posted them a lot and I want to make it abundantly clear that they are in my top 3 bands ever.  Period.  That being said, this album is actually quite amazing in it's own right.  Let's talk about a couple things here.

I have the greatest hits album AiC put out.  The two disc one that has a good 28 songs on it.  I would say it's safe to say that this is a really good selection of their material since it has a pile of stuff from a 4 or 5 album stretch.

Cool thing coming, aight?

10 of the 13 tracks on Dirt are on my greatest hits album.  10 out of freaking 13.  That's a lot.  I'll mark them with stars.

  1. Them Bones*
  2. Dam That River*
  3. Rain When I Die*
  4. Down In A Hole*
  5. Sickman
  6. Rooster*
  7. Junkhead
  8. Dirt*
  9. God Smack*
  10. Iron Man
  11. Hate To Feel*
  12. Angry Chair*
  13. Would?*
Out of these I only see Iron Man not making the cut as a classic since it's a mostly noise track anyway.  This album is really solid and I would strongly advise you give it a listen.

At the very least listen to tracks 1, 4, 6, and 12 since those are some of my hands down favorite tracks they've ever put out.


  1. Hiya, visiting on my way through the A to Z.

    Loved Them Bones, had one of those what songs do I know by Alice in Chains but it was actually more than I thought!

    Good luck with the rest of the challenge.

    1. Thank you for visiting, I'll be sure to return the favor!

      Them Bones is such a good song, glad I could help you figure out some you recognized, haha.

  2. I was so in love with Alice in Chains in high school. Rooster is a great song. One of my favorites. :)

    1. Rooster was the song that made me fall in love with Alice in Chains, glad you like it too!

  3. Hello there.
    Not really my kind of music, but thanks for sharing all the same.

    1. Hello there.
      Thank you very much for stopping by, if you swing by outside of this month there's probably a better chance of finding music you like, though I can't really promise much on that count.
