Core Songs Raked

Core is the debut studio album by the American rock band Stone Temple Pilots, released on September 29, 1992, through Atlantic Records. The album, which peaked at No. 1 on the BillboardHeatseekers chart and No. 3 on the Billboard 200, was certified 8x platinum by the RIAA on December 18, 2001, making it the band’s best-selling album. The first recorded track for the album, the 96 second “Wet My Bed”, emerged from an improv session between vocalist Scott Weiland and bassist Robert DeLeo, who were alone in the studio. Producer Brendan O’Brien can be heard at the end of the track, walking into the room and saying “All right, now what?” The rest of the album was recorded in a matter of five weeks, after which the band decided on the name “Core”, referring to the apple of the Biblical story of Adam and Eve. Here are all of the Core songs raked.

12. Wet My Bed

“This was a ridiculous interlude with Scott Weiland basically rambling over a beat and repetitive music that sounds lame and should never have been on here.”

11. No Memory

“I didnt like this instrumental at first but it makes a great opener for the next song. Brimming with energy, inspiration, and dark pathos, Core is a masterpiece from the era that spawned it.”

10. Naked Sunday

“This song isn’t bad but I couldn’t get into it after multiple listens. I couldn’t give it a perfect rating because it sounds like this is a song that fell short of what the band was working to (in fairness, this is their debut).”

9. Crackerman

“This song is a driving, hard rock song that pulls off it’s purpose. The only time it starts to take a dive is the last 10 seconds of the song but I find that easy to forgive.”

8. Sin

“The band regains their momentum here and this song fits nicely with the album’s atmosphere and stands as a great song in it’s own right. wesome song with politcal lyrics. Kinda weird though.”

7. Piece of Pie

“This song takes a couple listens, for me at least, to realize that it’s not filler. If you listen without bias, it’s actually a decent song with little flaw.”

6. Creep

“This is a popular single off the album that’s a really great song. It got compared to Nirvana a lot back at the time but listening now, there’s a noticeable difference between the bands.”

5. Dead & Bloated

“Great opener with just Scott Weiland at the begining. Could be a little faster but I guess no ones perfect. Great way to open the album and also a great song in it’s own right.”

4. Where the River Goes

“I can tell that this 7 minute song was supposed to be some kind of epic finish to the album, but it comes off as generic. The song itself isn’t bad but it shouldn’t have been the closing song, 7 minutes long, and try to sound like such a big deal.”

3. Wicked Garden

“The band stays on a roll with another excellent rock song that was also used as a single because it is relatively catchy.. Proves why Weiland is one of the best vocalists around!”

2. Plush

“Probably their most famous song or one of them, this was a single that got a ton of radio play for good reason; it’s a very well written and performed song that stands up against some of Pearl Jam in particular’s better songs from that era.”

1. Sex Type Thing

“This is also a great song and one of the many singles from the album; this song should have been allowed to sound more hard and intense because the dynamics call for that treatment.”
