** At least the above example tries to make some sense. There's another hilariously bad radio edit where the aforementioned curse words are just edited in reverse instead of actual words. Staley's upward inflections in the words are also reversed [[AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle and it sounds very off]].

Even after his death, Layne Staley remains a major inspiration for many artists today, with many singers such as Sully Erna of Music/{{Godsmack}} (the band claims that their name is not a reference to the AIC song[[note]]despite the fact they started off as an AiC cover band[[/note]] of the same name, but even if it's genuinely not, the connection is hard to avoid making), Aaron Lewis of Music/{{Staind}}, and Chester Bennington of Music/LinkinPark citing him as a major influence. In addition, Jerry Cantrell's second solo album, ''Degradation Trip'' and Music/{{Metallica}}'s ''Death Magnetic'' were both dedicated to him.

* ReclusiveArtist: During his final years up until his death, Staley became very reclusive thanks to his deteriorating physical state due in part of his addiction, so much that he rarely left his apartment in the University District of Seattle. Just exactly the day before Staley's death, bandmate Mike Starr would stay with him until the two had an ugly argument that culminated in Staley telling Starr to GetOut and not come back nor should he even call 911 about his ailing health. Starr had no choice but to oblige Staley's offer and the former would later regret his decision only after learning about the latter's death.

** "Would?" is strangely upbeat and the chorus can sound really happy, but the lyrics are about the death of their friend Andrew Wood of fellow Seattle band Mother Love Bone. Although the upbeat feeling could also be interpreted as getting over the grief.

* BigRockEnding: A particularly disturbing variety in "Head Creeps". Kinney's drum fills become chaotic, slowing down behind the guitar's dissonant squeals. "Hate to Feel" has a similar ending.

* DoomMetal: They could be seen as a more {{alternative|Metal}} take on the genre, especially in ''Dirt'' and ''Alice in Chains'', given the slow tempos, heavy {{Epic Riff}}s and serious subject matter. While not themselves classed as doom metal, they certainly influenced the genre.
** SludgeMetal: Starting with ''Dirt'', strengthening in ''Alice In Chains'', and now this is their default metal style upon their revival. (listen to "Lab Monkey" or "Acid Bubble")

* InNameOnly: To no one's surprise, there are some that categorically refuse to accept the "new" Alice in Chains, deriding Duvall's voice and songwriting talents as less than Staley's before the album was released. Even though Cantrell has done most of the singing since that album.
