On this day: Alice In Chains - Would?

On June 30, 1992, Alice In Chains released their single Would? 

The band made a cameo appearance in the movie Singles, where the song initially debuted on the soundtrack. On the group's second studio album, Dirt, which was also released in 1992, Later Would? was included. In 1992, "Would?" was released as a single and reached its highest position of No. 31 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

The late Mother Love Bone lead singer Andrew Wood, who passed away in 1990 from a heroin overdose, is mentioned in the song, which was penned by Jerry Cantrell who said about the song: "I was thinking a lot about Andrew Wood at the time. We always had a great time when we did hang out, much like Chris Cornell and I do. There was never really a serious moment or conversation, it was all fun. Andy was a hilarious guy, full of life and it was really sad to lose him. But I always hate people who judge the decisions others make. So it was also directed towards people who pass judgments"
