"Would?" is a song by grunge group Alice in Chains, appearing on their 1992 album Dirt.

The song, written by guitarist/vocalist Jerry Cantrell, concerns the late lead singer of Mother Love Bone, Andrew Wood, who died of a heroin overdose in 1990. It is one of the band's best-known songs.

This first appeared on the soundtrack to the 1992 movie Singles, in which the members of Alice in Chains make a cameo appearance. It also appears on the Burnout Paradise soundtrack.

Jerry Cantrell said of 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.
