Someone told me this:

"I think that grunge is like....

50% punk
35% metal
15% classic rock

musicwise at least"

Would you agree/disagree? Your opinions please!

Discuss....

The topic says "define grunge," and I did so.

You could have at least made it add up to 100.

2. something of inferior quality; trash: He didn't know good music from grunge.

From MusicMan's dictionary link.

I'd have to say, something that some people try too hard to be. But the music can be pretty good, example...well...Nirvana.


I'm so pissed I could spit.

grunge... i think of nirvana or pearl jam whe i hear that word...

in short, grunge is... raw, grotesque, emotional in a good way, abstract, and if i were to paint something... it would end up looking like a picasso piece. :)

Hey, you guys! Besides Nirvana being a grunge band, what about Hole, Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam (although someone mentioned it once), Mudhoney, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Screaming Trees, Temple Of The Dog, Mother Love Bone, and Black Lab?

Nice thread... Lots of open minded folk in here!

Now don't get me wrong, if I see a CD labelled Nirvana I'm not the first one to grab it and put it on, but really.. you could do worse. Jay-Z, for example, the man with less rhythm than Average Homeboy.

Exactly... But even myself I don't go criticising Hip Hop music. I don't like the music but I don't go headbashing it. I respect others tastes.
