Rotten Apple is a 1994 song by Alice in Chains that is many fans’ favorite songs by the band. It has overlapping guitars, echoing acoustics, and squealing electrics underneath the vocals.

Some fans say that Alice in Chains is singing about original sin, where you are getting a snapshot of the entire world made up of many smaller images of the Earth and that is all cold, ignorant and a complete mess.

The Rotten Apple title and reference ties back to Christianity and the Bible, with the song lamenting about how people get corrupted so young and that they can never reach innocence again. The lead singer wants that innocence badly again in the song, but it has been deemed way to late for him. How ’bout dem apples?

The song states through a number of metaphors that the divine apple in the Garden of Eden is a purely rotten thing that just corrupts and corrupts and corrupts.

Rotten Apple is definitely not about apples as a normal or popular food. It is a full-on, Biblical-metaphor driven ride through a cold and nasty world. If you ended up here looking for songs about apples as a healthy food choice or low calorie fruit, then you’re in the wrong place!
