3. Alice in Chains – “We Die Young”

RIP Layne Staley. I remember seeing this video and hearing this band for the first time on Headbanger’s Ball, 1990. “We Die Young” came from the debut album, Facelift,and is overlooked, but it’s one of the band’s heaviest songs. Grunge? That was a label put on Alice in Chains due to its timing and hometown of Seattle, Wash. Us metalheads never considered them “grunge.” It wasn’t until “Man in the Box” went into heavy rotation that the band took off, but this was the song that made me buy this album. The video was directed by Rocky Schenck, who later directed the music videos for “Them Bones,” “What the Hell Have I” and “Grind,” and features the band performing while various people drown in pools of blood.

Alice in Chains’ Sept. 4, 2009, show at Washington, D.C. ’s famed 9:30 Club was significant for more than one reason. Foremost, it was the band’s first night on its first tour supporting its first new studio album in 14 years. Second, singer William DuVall said he was born in the area, and both his 98-year-old grandmother and 5-month-old son were in attendance. Covering one extreme to the other, he said, this show was as much about opening new doors as it was walking through old ones. (more…)
