* 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.

** Many of their songs qualify, but "Angry Chair" sums it up perfectly with Staley's life, especially with the lines, "Saw my reflection and cried. So little hope that I died."

** Add Angry Chair to the list as well. The bass riff is the thing of nightmares.

* SweetDreamsFuel: If you can believe it, they have an example or two. ''Jar of Flies'' while still having some fairly [[TearJerker Tear Jerking]] moments, often has pleasant, even dreamy instrumentation. This is especially noticible on "Rotten Apple" and to a lesser extent "No Excuses". Listening to the EP all the way through can be a downright relaxing experience.

* {{Anvilicious}}: Pretty much the only way the ''Dirt'' album could be less subtle is if it consisted of nothing but Layne screaming "HEROIN RUINED MY LIFE" over and over again for an hour.[[note]]Except for "Rooster", which is screaming "[[UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar THE VIETNAM WAR]] WAS HELL!" for over six minutes, "Dam That River", which is Cantrell saying "Hey, Sean, fuck you for smashing a coffee table over my head, asshole", and "Them Bones", which is two minutes and thirty seconds of "life sucks and then you die".[[/note]]

** "Love Song". Just... just listen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gm3lqTOhRAw to it]]. It's likely that they were extremely drunk and/or high when they recorded it, but nothing has been confirmed.

* EpicRiff: Many - the talk box guitar opening of "Man in the Box", the main riff in "Rooster", the bass intro to "Would?", and the distorted guitar line in "Grind" are some of the best examples.

* EvenBetterSequel: ''Facelift'' was a great album and very influential, but ''Dirt'' was one of the defining albums of the 90s along with ''Nevermind'' and ''Superunknown''. ''Dirt'' also solidified their sound as a sludgy, dark toned, mournful metal band, dropping all of their remaining glam elements.
