Ready Mickey?
RIP layne...my first born will carry your name!! AIC 1987-2002 period!
Alice probably one of the best ever, mosdef the sound of my generation!
The "original" songwriters are Alice In Chains, Pattigarlow. Written by Cantrell. This is not a cover, it's an acoustic version. What planet are some of you from? How does anyone not know that? Alice In Chains was part of the last Rock movement, and you all should pay attention! PLEASE, parents, PLEASE teach your kids about GOOD/GREAT music(see AIC, Soundgarden, etc.) DO NOT LET THEM LISTEN TO ANY MORE OF TODAY's GARBAGE! Thank you!

R.I.P. Mike Starr. a very badass bass player. and victim of Dr. Drew's Celebrity Rehab. thanx Dr. Drew you prick
pattigarlow
Wonder who the original songwriters were
Not sure what made this band so damn great. Layne Staley, we miss you. R.I.P
Who Da F**k Is Alice?daw em in germany on their Facelift tour one of the best shows I've ever seen
They flashed the war images on the stage background in an intimate concert in nc a while back----epic ! ! ! !
Not written by AIC ?
I love this version way better than the studio version. Really brings out the emotion of it.
Been rocking since Man In The Box. Great band. I have been listening to them since the beginning. This song reminds me of my dad. Hes a Vietnam vet. We used to rock this song as we rolled over the Iraqi Army when I did my time with 1st Marine Division.
This song is so powerful man I love Alice in chains wish I lived in 90's.
Rooster is fave Alice in chains song. At their concert it was the encore .majic
Based on a true story. ..
Holy s**t!!! this video is of the hook!!!!very powerful!!! WOW!!!!!!
studio version is far more intense btw
after listening to this song so much i feel like it's become an automatic sound that plays in my head as soon as i feel a certain way. strange to describe.
I am going to one of their concerts in about 2 weeks. Although I know it won't be as good as them in the 90's because sadly Layne is not with us today, I bet they will still rock on!
Saw AIC live. They put on a great show. Layne was so adorable, cracking little jokes here and there. What struck me the most (besides his amazing voice) was how they rocked the house, but at the same time it was just this laid back, perfect mellow vibe.
Love Alice in chains love Layne great band great voice ahhh the 90's miss the 90's and Layne RIP Layne
awesome song.
Awesome! You can just feel the pain in his voice, a song with meaning!
cwanamaker4
Haunting and heavy
Favorite AiC song ever
Aw s**t I gotta petecure at 9 XD. Great song tho
Wow what a voice the pain emanates through his voice
He's been gone 11 years, man.
Hard to believe Layne has been gone 10 years....mis s that voice! CLASSIC!!
Song rocks. No he aint gonna die. Walking tall machine gun men.

Survival <3
Never has another voice like this existed B)

I would like to truly thank all of our Veterans for their service to our country. Without them we probably wouldn't be listening to Pandora!!! Instead we would be listening to some Bullshit propaganda that a fuct up Communist Government would have us hear.!!!
The song makes me sad. They spit on my dad in an airport when he came back from Vietnam. He punched the person's lights out. Once a fighter, always a fighter.

Love this entire album. Too bad Layne left us so soon.
Yeah. It was about a very real and scary time. And unplugged was a chance for bands to show they really could play and song, not like that Simpson chick. Lol
sarah_rca
Love this Alice in Chains! But honestly, every time I hear this song, ill always think of the paintball episode of Daria!
WOW thats as dark and deep as you can get. People who can't relate to this song most likely haven't been through "REAL" tough times. Getting knocked down and kicked in the teeth while still having the will to get up knowing your a** will be right back down again. That's classic Lane the instumental goes hand in hand with the pain in Lane's voice. All haters in order to truely appreciate this band you have to be able to relate or comprehend self distruction, addiction and self inflicted pain o
sb_batra
whole unplugged was dull and hideous? you are retarded mike
sb_batra
Yes he sounds on the verge of collapsing or breaking down.
I still get chills hearing his flawed voice in the unplugged set tho
Love this song. But, I'm sorry. Alice In Chains whole unplugged session was dull and hideous
