Song of the Day: Alice In Chains – “Them Bones”

Happy 52nd birthday to Alice In Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell, who was born on this day in 1966. This song, written by Cantrell, is one of many strong tracks off Alice In Chains’ 1992 album Dirt, which has endured as one of the most popular albums of the grunge era. “I was just thinking about mortality, that one of these days we’ll end up a pile of bones,” Cantrell once said about the song. “It’s a thought for every human being, whether you believe in an after-life or that when we die, that’s it. The thought that all the beautiful things and knowledge and experiences you’ve been through just end when you end scares me, the thought that when you close your eyes for good, it’s gone forever.”
