  2. I like Soul Asylum a lot. But most people dont really consider them Grunge. And neither do I for that matter, so I'm kinda wondering why I even bothered to post this. Oh, well--there it is
  3. ^ at least someone posted.

  4. Yeah. I know the feeling of making threads only to see them fall flat on their face. People on this forum only seem to like Dubset and Hiphop and pretending to be interested in World Music and Jazz
  5. Aint that the truth
  6. Oh my gosh.
    New favorite post!!!
    I am a grunge maniac lol

  7. [ame=]Temple Of The Dog - Hunger Strike - YouTube[/ame]

    Will ALWAYS be one of my favorites.
  8. weeeird, i was just watching live nirvana vids on youtube, mostly unplugged in ny stuff. the pain in kurt's voice on their cover of where did you sleep last night is so chilling.

    .. and now i'm jamming to a bunch of pearl jam, go figure haha.
  9. awful examples of grunge. grunge was so fucking generic by thee time nirvana and pearl jam got to it. real grunge:

    [ame=]Meat Puppets - Reward - YouTube[/ame]


    curt cobain worshipped all of these bands and did a lot to give them more exposure. he got all of the melvins albums reissued and made people aware of the underground hardcore/alternative scenes. their music was ok too, but thats truly nirvanas best attribute.
  10. Man, I fucking love 90's grunge. All I listin to is Nirvana and Alice in Chains. Love all of it.
  11. at no comment^ i knew you'd show up here. bringing in the people who pioneered the genre
  12. seeing melvins for first time in may.
    i guess their knida gurnge or some shit...
    gon b tight.

    also cool to see dinosaur jr in this thread.. especially that album.
    fucking love the banshee screams at the start of little fury things
  13. Screaming Trees get no love, heres a video with Josh Homme also in the band. He briefly toured with them after Kyuss broke up and before he started Queens of The Stone Age.

  14. Alice in Chains will forever be my number one grunge band.
  15. Although, I'm desperatly in love with you for mentioning The Wipers and The Meat Puppets, I dont think I would consider either of those bands "Grunge". They definitely had a lot to do with influencing the genre, though. Have you ever listened to Mission of Burma? You'd like them.

    [ame=]Mission of Burma - That's when I reach for my Revolver (1981) - YouTube[/ame]

    I know its not technically Grunge, but its fucking awesome. Also, most bands who would later on become involved with the Grunge scene took a lot from this band
  16. yeah i dig mission of burma, and i definitely consider the wipers and meat puppets grunge second, punk first.

    MoB is my style though, im obviously a big post punk fan.

    fame and fortune is the best MoB song.
  17. I suppose they could be lumped in with the Grunge sound, but I wouldnt put them in there. And yeah, Fame and Fourtune is a fucking good song. I've always liked Conley's songs over Miller's, though. His songs just stick in my mind beautifully. And I've definitely been on a post-punk bend lately. I just bought a Vinyl of Live at the Witch Trials the other day and I dont even own a record player, I just felt compelled to buy it.

    And just so I feel like I'm contributing to the thread, what do you people think about Flipper? I went through a huge Flipper phase once. Still good, though

    [ame=]Flipper - Nothing - YouTube[/ame]
  18. Flipper is one of the best bands of all time.

    Have you read Rip it Up and Start Again? Its a british post punk book, really good. If you buy it make sure you get the british version. the american one is cut.
  19. No I havent, but I'll definitely try and get a copy. I'm guessing I could get this at Amazon (?) I just finished reading Please Kill Me. I've been meaning to read it for years and I finally got around to it and its amazing, but fucking terrifying. You can practically smell the heroin and blood off the fucking pages!

    And I can't believe I havent mentioned Steve Albini on this thread yet. Big Black and Rapeman are both good bands if you like Grunge. Also, Scratch Acid deserves a mention here too. I know all these bands arent really Grunge, but Grunge is such a small genre its easy to run out of bands to talk about
