Of the ones listed Soundgarden gets my vote. If Mother Love Bone would have been listed they would have. Sucks that Andrew Wood had to die so young.

In an extremely strange twist of irony, had he not died there would have been no Pearl Jam. Unfortunate, but true.

There would have been no Temple of the Dog as well.

I didn't even have to THINK about this. The Mighty, Right Reverend Horton Heat!

At the last RHH show I saw, they covered Nirvana's
"In Bloom."

Hey...from a former Seattleite...the best one was the Screaming Trees. Hands down. They never had their just desserts, either. Crying shame, it is.

Soundgarden would be my second choice.

Mother Love Bone was never on Sub Pop...unless we're referrng to the "Shine" EP. I'd have to dig up my copy to know if I'm recalling my facts correctly. However, Andy's previous band, Malfunkshun, was involved with Sub Pop as was Green River, the other Pearl Jam precursor.

He passed away on my 21st birthday...definitely NOT the best present I could have wanted...he is still terribly missed.

I guess I'm old school on this one: Nirvana! They sound even more incredible to my ears now then when I first heard them back in the day. Talk about a waste of talent . . . imagine if Kurt Cobain were alive today . . . sigh . . . Sad

My second choice would have been Mudhoney or Nirvana. I really enjoyed Mudhoney when I saw them in concert a couple years ago. They really put on a great show.

Mark Arm used to call my place of employment, which shall remain nameless to protect the guilty (LOL), in order to speak to his pal Guy. A couple of times I wasn't in a very good mood and disconnected him after sweetly asking in dulcet tones, "Why, that's not a problem, Mr. Arm. Will you please hold?"

"Uh...geez...yeah."

*CLICK*

(I'm still smirking about it!)

Wow, I must be getting old. There's only a couple of those bands I've even heard of. :ghostface:

Yes, but Temple of the Dog was not on Sub Pop. That was a major label release.
