    Anyone remember the time when the Seattle sound was ruling the airwaves? When bands that broke the mold of conventional rock-star stereotypes and made the mainstream follow their lead. Its hard to believe its already been well over 10 years since the grunge movement sparked and faded! So sad that it was mostly due to these great muscians own self-destructive behaviour that killed this genre.




    I miss the good ol' times when bands like these where kickin' a$$......

    Alice in Chains
    [​IMG]




    Pearl Jam
    [​IMG]


    Soundgarden
    [​IMG]


    and of course the most famous band to come outta the movement....


    Nirvana
    [​IMG]





    Hate it or love it, this is the thread to talk about it. I just want to talk to some people who grew up with it and those who were old enough to experience this exploding era first hand.:woot:

    No it wasn't. Pearl Jam is still going, Soundgarden was just done, Alice In Chains is still playing and the singer made other albums after he left and he didn't die of an overdose until long after Grunge was big. And then you have Kurt, while the other members of Nirvana have gone on to great success.

    so many good bands came out of Seattle around that time period that never got nearly the credit they deserve.
    some being:
    Mudhoney
    Mother Love Bone
    Green River

    Though if Andrew Wood hadn't died, I'd put money that Mother Love Bone would have been bigger than them all.

    I make no bones about it-I flat out hate Pearl Jam from Ten...Everything after ten is magic but,..I just have no desire to reminisce either,..People who know nothing of Pearl Jam beyond that album disgust me
    And I have no room in my heart to reminisce about Soundgarden either because without that split=no Audioslave
    ...After all that negative Il say a positive
    Neil Young with Crazy Horse :up:

    Eddie Vedder influenced a wave of crappy wannabe rock singers...even to this day. His voice is just so powerful. I have no idea why so many crap "singers" felt that they could/can evoke the same power that he has. But I blame him for making my ears bleed from hearing his imitators.

    Grunge or alternative was like a fine slice of meat in between two crappy moldy slices of bread (80's hair rock and "Nu" rock). Thankfully it was big during my college years so I got exposed to a lot of good music and smoked a lot of weed whilst listening ;) I laugh at the people in college now listening to bands like "Plain White T's" :o

    Thankfully they were able to outlive that whole movement and move on to become their own band. "Tiny Songs..." was the turning point. STP is one of my favorite bands.

    music goes in waves....I was in Middle school/HS at the time and when Grunge hit, something told me that the music landscape was changing....it killed hair metal and put pop music in a coma....but everything runs its course.....

    Pffft. If Kurt Cobain didn't off himself, we wouldn't even be talking about Nirvana today.
