I kind of grew up on grunge. I don't nearly listen as much anymore but some favorites are...

 

Days Of The New

Smashing Pumpkins

Alice In Chains

Pearl Jam

Bush

 

I sometimes find myself listening to Nirvana's MTV Unplugged album too. The Man Who Sold The World is a spectacular cover.

Out of all the Seattle bands, SG is my favorite. Badmotorfinger is just kick-ass, though Superunknown and Down On The Upside are awesome too.

Ah, Cornell... Sucks that he can't sing live like he used to back in the Badmotorfinger days.

That's everybody's problem.

 

You might have seen them on MTV if you were around in '93/'94.

Screaming Trees is also a great band from that era.

 

I prefer Mark Lanegan's solo work, though.

Ahh yes. 'Grunge' was my music of choice growing up, and most bands I liked in the early '90s I still listen to now.

 

The biggest for me was Alice in Chains. Of course I dug on Nirvana and Soundgarden. I was happy to see Days of the New mentioned. Funnily enough I didn't like Pearl Jam as a teen, but became more appreciative of them as an adult.

 

Other mentions:

 

STP

Screaming Trees

Mudhoney

Mother Love Bone

 

and even though it could be debated whether or not they fit this list:

 

Failure

Two awesome bands that slipped my mind were Tad and Green River.

 

 

 

Man the singer from Tad was a big awesome lumberjack.

Way to make a sh*tty remark about something you don't like in its topic that you don't have to be in, Uno! icon14.gif

 

 

 

I am a grunge fan, but I've never really liked Nirvana. The incident with their frontman was bad, but that isn't a definitive reason to say you "like" 'em. I just think they are over-rated.

 

As for STP, I really don't think they are grunge at all. Yes their Core album did sound that way, but its compostition was far different. Then they sounded more pop-ish through the years.

 

So basically, this is my opinion: In grunge Nirvana is Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam is Green Day, and STP are, well, themselves.

Heh, that's just his trademark.

 

Anyways as a diehard "grunge" fan I really opposed to Bush at first because they seemed so poppy. Then I saw this:

 

I mean if the dude risks getting shocked by lightning to play one song, that's gotta say something about their integrity. tounge.gif Then I started listening to their other songs and they're actually pretty good. Their live shows are also really good, with a lot of jamming in songs. At Pinkpop 1996, they did a great show. And you look into the crowd and you plenty of flannel and Doc Martens. I think people should appreciate Bush at least for helping to keep Alternative Rock/Grunge the dominant force in the mid-90's. I really do recommend bands like Bush, Silverchair, Filter, and Collective Soul to people who are really into the Seattle sound and want to hear more. Sure the originals will always the be the best, but if you ignore the post-grunge scene you're really missing out on a lot of good stuff.

My whole point was it doesn't make sense...

 

If anything, Nirvana would be the Green Day of grunge.

How so?

 

 

Well, of course it doesn't make sense. I'll try to explain. Everyone thinks Led Zeppelin is rock and everyone acts like they were influenced by them. As with Nirvana; everyone thinks they are grunge.

 

Although it was a bad comparison, I thought Pearl Jam seemed like Green Day where they are in a genre, but make music that can be liked by a lot of people outside the genre. Compare Pearl Jam with earlier grunge music that had messages of apathy, uselessness, and such. Pearl Jam had a more "accepted" message: I guess that's what it can be described as.

 

As for STP, they are their own band.

 

And I based my "comparison" on my own opinion on where they stand in the grunge genre.
