The adjectival-noun stated in one of the poll-options, namely “retard”, is an incredibly harsh word and, in a context such as this, I would never want to use it...

Irrespective, if abrasive insults of that nature be requisite in communicating the clear distinctions betwixt two styles of music, then so be it.

I have, for some time, been of the opinion that Alice in Chains are a grunge band and not metal. I went about my youthful years listening to metal — Priest, Purple, Kiss, Aerosmith... — and I could tell that the music of Alice in Chains tapped into the darkest veins of the human psyche and produced music that was utterly original, something decidedly different and that connected with me even more than metal, and in a different more intimate way.

I adore “Man in the Box” — how with that Alice were able to create their most accessible grunge opus while purveying so quintessentially the foreboding sludge that not only brought swathes of fans to their thrall, but intertwined with my teenage dejection, is a feat of true distinction.
