Post your favorite artists, bands, and or songs of the grunge genre in here:

 

My two most favorite were Nirvana (of course) & Soundgarden. 'Nevermind' & 'Superunknown' are two of the greatest albums of all-time respectively. Also enjoyed some of Pearl Jam, but not as much as the first two mentioned.

 

Dave Grohl, absolute beast on the drums. Kurt Cobain, one of the greatest most iconic voices of all-time.

 

Chris Cornell, a genius.

 

 

[expletive] YEAH!!!

I don't really listen to Grunge, but I will definitely be keeping an eye on this thread so that I can check it out.

Well except Nirvana I too am not too much into grunge. I must single out besides Grohl and Cobain also my fellow Croatian member Krist Novoselić.

According to older people, Grunge killed Rock music, ask even older people and the say Punk killed Rock, go farther back and they reminisce about the Golden Times lol. I think there are distinctions, but to a degree these are all umbrella terms. I consider bands like Smashing Pumpkins (specifically early on) to be grunge, same for STP (don't hate), and even Bush.

[expletive] yeah! Gwen Stefani's man! This [expletive] goes hard, especially as a live performance (opening is just flat out filthy):

 

 

Original (sounds better overall through & through):

Spoiler

 

Liked a few STP songs, but I haven't heard from their catalog extensively so I can't completely fairly judge em', but these are the few I do know I like for sure:

 

 

Thank you Rock Band for introducing me to this one! haha

 

 

The build-up is awesome...

Technically these are all Grunge bands, just depends on who influenced who really.

You guys who are into grunge should check out a new grunge band from Australia. Their name is Violent Soho.

 

They have that dirty guitar sound from the early 90's and you can tell that Nirvana influence them a lot.
