Re: The battle for Seattle!

I'd like to start a motion to officailly include STP in the grunge movement. You dont have to be in one location to generate a style of music. And they did grunge better then most.

Yes, STP is the racer's edge!



Richard Petty dominated NASCAR with his STP sponsored Plymouths and Dodges so who are we to deny it?

I agree! But what about Jane's Addiction then? They sound pretty grungy to my ears.

The were psychedelic rock and sounded nothing like the early grungers who were their contemporaries.

I'd go with Nine Inch Nails and a few others also. I am just kinda tired of the idea that grunge is only from Seattle.

Re: The battle for Seattle!

Alright then lets say every hard rock band that didn't come out of LA wasn't heavy metal. You had to be from LA to be a "real" heavy metal band like Van Halen or Motley Crue. The rest are just alternative metal.

The idea of localization of a genre is rediculous.

Re: The battle for Seattle!

I only experienced this period in retrospect, as I practically stopped listening to rock and pop between the mid eighties and the end of the nineties. From what I've heard (one album each for these bands, two for Nirvana), Nirvana just ahead of Pearl Jam. But frankly, none of them are really my cup of tea.

Alice in Chains for me, though I'm not familiar enough with Pearl Jam's and Soundgarden's material.

That's because grunge isn't a genre. It's a scene. Like "Woah, Burzum is an LA Metal band!" :P

Re: The battle for Seattle!

Alice seems to get overvalued in this forum. They were undoubtedly just as dark, if not darker, than Nirvana. It seems like they'd carry the heavy metal vote because of their sound. I think when it comes to grunge era bands they are less threatening to the older classic rock set than Nirvana and Pearl Jam.

If you were ask most Seattlites what the quintessential Seattle grunge band there's no way they carry that many votes over Pearl Jam and equal out to Nirvana. I really loved their sound though and a nice catalogue of songs.

I was watching a great surf movie the other day called Riding Giants. They were filming what was probably the most deadly waves on this beach in Malaysia I believe it was. Anyhow, Them Bones came on when they showed these super-hydraulic waves. It was the perfect tune for it.

sorry but 10 Million albums sold of Nevermind WHILE Cobain was still alive, is much more than a cult following

same can be said for Pearl Jam as each of their first 3 albums albums sold several million
