Wales and you
AiC can make a s**tty day pretty awesome. I loved these guys back then, and I still love them today.
Love AIC they make my work night go better .
Alwaus wanna hear some AIC!
Here answers to the Jon Benet Ramsey case are. Inclusive Lane Staley too though a more prominent view where Skinny Puppy.
It don't matter what category you put AIC UP AGAINST. .. they absolutely and unequivocall y have the most range, and they got me through the toughest yrs. Of my life! !! Forever my #1. R.I.P. Heath Bellshaw
Not a fan of this song. Too whiney. Then again, isn't it all?
Alice n chainz iz one of my fav bandz
Bongos can rock too.
The whole "Jar of Flies" album is superb. It really shows the flexibility and talent AIC has. They were the only band of their time to make both gloomy, sludgy hard rock and acoustic numbers sound great. They have so much range and the way the music accompanies Layne's voice and feeling is tops.
Actually they were both, but they've never cared for labels, they've done heavy metal, alt metal, grunge, alternative and softer acoustic songs.
Pandora defines this band as the definitive heavy metal band of the early 90's. Really? Heavy metal? No, AIC was straight up alternative and a breath of fresh air from the heavy metal lunkheads of the time.
My favorite band
Alice In Chains headed the main stage at Rockfest in May of this year here in K.C.MO...Wil l i a m Duvall was charismatic as HELL...he did the memory of Mr. Staley at OPTIMAL level!

You think its funny. Well you're drowning in it too.. I love the way they said when interviewed ,they wrote songs about what was going on in their lives...!! "Mike Starr" said about one of their lyrics "don't get high or you will die" ...on his new Orleans interview! Trying to help people with what they were going through. Some people get it twisted!! Ive always been A fan day 1!
I feel like some of the best songs Alice In Chains made were the ones from their more underrated EPs, like Jar Of Flies and Sap. I swear, those EPs are like buried treasure. It's amazing.
♪It's Okay, had a BAD Day...
Hands are bruised from breakin' rocks all day!"♪
♪You my friend, I will defend...
& if We change- I'll LOVE YOU anyway!"♪
This is the first song my old garage band ever covered. So many good memories.. Awesome tune..
Heavy metal band? Huh? Alice in chains is not metal or grunge..... They are a hard rock band. Love em.
This right here is one of the many main reason I love this band and their music is the greatest of all in my opinion wished music now a days still rocked like this
\,,/_ Love how they go from heavy rock to bluesy acoustics like this B)
Happy 20th anniversary Jar of Flies, Maybe even brought some country/Amer i c a n a influences knowingly or unknowingly (sub-conscio u s l y ) .

This is one of those songs that just makes you forget ...
I like "I stay away" better
Love the meaning this song bleeds
sometimes we have to go our separate ways....dont judge my path
Classic
Great chord progressions and lead guitar!
"It's alright there comes a time
Got no patience to search for peace of mind
Lay'in low want to take it slow
No more hiding or disguising truths I've sold..." love these words
,,excuses are like a**holes;

--everybody' s got one--
jaclynfre
This song explains so much!! Insightful. Mellow, honest and thoughtful. A combination that's difficult to beat. It definitely kicks a$$!
Awesome song, and the unplugged version is even better!
jm8898
wow so much memories!!
duchnowskia2
yeah this is also on unplugged... g r e a t version there too
jpmenvielle
One of AIC's best!
this song rocks and kicks a**
could have been??
yes Layne has left the building...b u t Alice is alive and kickin' @$$
Was this on their unplugged album? Should have been. Great song either way, though.
quick_hendri x
it's alright....
Cool drum intro.
GREAT CD,TO BAD HE IS NO LONGER WIYH US,JUST IMAGINE WHAT ELSE COULD'VE BEEN
great song no matter what mood your n....
After seeing this covered by two random bar bands, I must say it is impossible to be bad. It doesn't matter who plays it.
dlpenwell0
after almost fifteen years this song still gives me the chills
seattle is music, nuff said
MY PERSONAL FAVORITE
Well rounded song. One of their best imo.
