Grunge


I would have to say, one of my most favorite genres of music has to be grunge.

GRUNGE MUSIC -Has a dirty guitar sound, strong riffs, and heavy drumming -Guitars usually tuned to a lower key -Commonly used guitar distortion and feedback -Draws heavily on Punk -Lyrics are typically angst-filled, angry, frustrated, sad, fearsome, and depressed

I absolutely love everything about it, especially the rebelliousness from mainstream society and not giving a F&*(^ about how you look or anybody else. Most people mistaken grunge for "emo" which gets my blood boiling.

I pretty much grew up with grunge music and fashion in the early 90s, but it hit mainstream as Nirvana went big with their NeverMind album. It faded out and most people don't even recall what grunge is.

I don't think grudge can compare to punk, since punk can never die. Grunge has died, but I still listen to the music and dress it.

  6. Grunge was the next step of Punk, really. Both are minimalistic movements against musical and stylistic excess.

    Then Alt-Rock really started up thanks to Grunge in the mid 90's, and the rest is history.

  18. I'm looking forward to the grunge post tomorrow. Honestly the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the word grunge is Nirvana. I hear some people say Alice in Chains is grunge, others say it isn't. I've never put myself into the category of being a certain type of music fan. I just like what I like. But I am interested in learning about newer grunge bands.

  19. Did you hear about Justin Beiber comparing himself to Kurt Cobain? I raged.

  20. Grunge can't be completely dead if there's at least one person out there keeping it alive.

  21. Thing I like about the Grunge music is that it feels like the drum's more involved.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Awesome!!! Nirvana is just cool BTW I like your blog design!

  25. grunge always makes my clothes smell

  26. Yeah I'm kinda surprised it died out so fast.

    ReplyDelete
  27. It always amuses me when people say "this or that" is dead, when there are bands out there that play that style of music.

    Grunge...eh.

  28. Can't say I'm a big Grunge fan, but growing up it had an impact on me and almost everyone our age in some way or another. I still think people tend to overrate a genre because it had 3 good bands.

  29. I <3 grunge. AIC is my fav.

    If you guys want to listen to some early grunge, find a cd of Mother Love Bone. They never took off due to Nirvana, but the sound and passion is just as good.

  30. I was never that big on Grunge. I don't outright dislike as a genre, but it's simply never appealed to me that much.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I used to really like this kind of music but have since grown away from it and don't like it much anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  32. tbh, never liked nirvana/grunge much :\

    ReplyDelete
  33. I actually have not heard much about grunge.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I use to be really into grunge. good stuff

    ReplyDelete
  35. Well, now I see you and me have one thing in common. I like Nirvana so much, I have thousands of music, and I sometimes I start erasing music I don't like, but from Nirvana I just have erased like two or three tracks. Nirvana deserves an special genre. =) Good track! and thank you for your supp! bro, we're in touch

  36. I saw Nirvana live one year hear at the State Fair when they were starting out.....damn I feel old.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I miss grunge, but I wouldn't say that it's dead. There are still some bands trying to pull it off, but they have abandoned the flannel fashion.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I liked Nirvana and tried listening to other bands but they did nothing for me. I think I kinda liked Helmut though.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I sort of grew out of the genre.
    i still enjoy a tune here and there.
