One of my DIRTIEST designs ever, I don't think anyone has gotten it yet... do you know?


Alice in Chains is an American rock band formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1987 by guitarist and songwriter Jerry Cantrell and original lead vocalist Layne Staley. The initial lineup was rounded out by drummer Sean Kinney, and bassist Mike Starr (who was replaced in 1993 by Mike Inez).

Although widely associated with grunge music, the band's sound incorporates heavy metal and acoustic elements. Since its formation, Alice in Chains has released five studio albums, three EPs, two live albums, four compilations, and two DVDs. The band is known for its distinct vocal style which often included the harmonized vocals of Staley and Cantrell.

Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s, along with other Seattle bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden. The band was one of the most successful music acts of the 1990s, selling over 25 million albums worldwide, and over 14 million in the US alone. In 1992 the band released their album Dirt which was critically acclaimed and has been certified quadruple platinum. The band also achieved two No.1 Billboard 200 albums (Jar of Flies and Alice in Chains), 14 top ten songs on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and eight Grammy Award nominations.

Although never officially disbanding, Alice in Chains was plagued by extended inactivity from 1996 onwards due to Staley's substance abuse, which resulted in his death in 2002. The band reunited in 2005 with new lead vocalist William DuVall, and released their fourth studio album, Black Gives Way to Blue, in 2009. The album was a success, being certified gold by the RIAA in 2010. Alice in Chains released their fifth studio album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, on May 28, 2013.

Shhhhhhhh, it's funny right, right... I sure miss Alice in Chains, period! It's tragic for a group to come so far and battle all the up hill life changing... life altering sh@t.

  1. And I JUST missed seeing them in concert twenty years ago! Staley had throat problems and had to cancel a couple shows, one of them being the one I was to attend.
    Been a fan since the beginning. Dig the new singer they have now.
    Ever interview these guys?
    Ever see Riki Rachtman from Headbanger's Ball interview them? They shoved him in a pool.

  2. Love the shirt! I'm sure my wife would disagree with me wearing it.
    Dirt was a great album. Rooster was played quite a bit at on my cd player.
