Alice in Chains are a rock band which formed in 1987 in Seattle, Washington, United States. Drawing equally from the heavy riffing of metal and the gloomy strains of grunge, the band developed a bleak, nihilistic sound that balanced grinding metallic riffs with subtly textured acoustic numbers. They were hard enough for metal fans, yet their dark subject matter and punky attack placed them among the front ranks of the Seattle-based grunge bands. While this dichotomy helped the group soar to multi-platinum status with their second album, 1992's Dirt, it also divided them.

Love this chorus.... Isn't just the perfect example of a song you listen to, half drunk, in a rock bar and raise your glasses while beer is spilling out, to toast with your mates? A chorus that is talking for (and is talking straight into the hearts of) a generation of rebels, who have become employees for pennies.....
