No. 17: Stone Temple Pilots, ‘Core’ – Best Debut Hard Rock Albums
Grunge wasn't just for rock bands from Seattle, as Stone Temple Pilots led the second wave of acts arriving in 1992. With Scott Weiland's delivery, there were a lot of people who thought they were actually Pearl Jam, but eventually everyone knew who Stone Temple Pilots were.
Their debut disc core created buzz with 'Dead and Bloated' and 'Sex Type Thing' before becoming a huge sensation with 'Plush.' Tracks like 'Wicked Garden,' 'Creep,' and 'Crackerman' kept the momentum going, and a successful career followed.
