Alice in Chains

rock group

By combining the gloomy lyrics of grunge bands with the hard edge of heavy metal, the group has managed to move beyond its roots in the Seattle sound. Their albums include Facelift (1990) and Dirt (1992), and they have appeared on movie soundtracks, including Last Action Hero (1992) and The Cable Guy (1996).
