The 11 Best Songs By Stone Temple Pilots

STP was always the red-headed step-child of 90s alternative rock.  When they first came out, they were belittled for being a Pearl Jam knock-off.  Despite the negativity, Core was a hit.  But it was their follow-up, Purple, where they stood up for themselves.  That album, in my opinion, is one of the most underrated albums of the 90s.  It belongs up there with the likes of Ten, Nevermind, Siamese Dream, Dirt, and Badmotorfinger.  Fifteen years later, the music is still as sharp and as exciting as it was in its prime.  And I still can't get over that awesome riff in Vasoline.

Their new album, re-establishes their rock star nobility.  After giving it a few spins, it's easily the best thing they've done since Tiny Music.

Here are the 11 Best Songs By The Stone Temple Pilots:

1.  Trippin on a Hole in a Paper Heart (Tiny Music)
2.  Vasoline (Purple)
3.  Big Empty (Purple)
4.  Sex Type Thing (Core)
5.  Army Ants (Purple)
6.  All in The Suit That You Wear (Thank You)
7.  Interstate Love Song (Purple)
8.  Big Bang Baby (Tiny Music)
9.  Unglued (Purple)
10.  I Got You (No. 4)
11.  Andy Warhol (MTV Unplugged - Purple B-Side)
