I Hate Grunge!

Following the formula our friend Hodad used with punk music, if i may, i would like to ask if you hate GRUNGE music that came out in the late 80's and the early 90's.

Re: I Hate Grunge!

It's my second favorite subcategory of rock, behind Classic.

Re: I Hate Grunge!

I like most of it...although, as is the case with many genres, there are such huge differences between the bands given the label so it is pretty meaningless to me.

My favourite grunge artists include Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Screaming Trees, Mother Love Bone, The Afghan Whigs, and Tad.

Re: I Hate Grunge!

i love it! i was really into the scene in the early nineties and got to see most of the bands live, including Nirvana. These days i still listen to a lot of grunge, particularly Pearl Jam, Screaming Trees, and Nirvana.

Re: I Hate Grunge!

"some of it's ok" I like Soundgarden a lot and then I like some albums from Nirvana and Pearl Jam, Other than that I haven't really explored grunge.

Re: I Hate Grunge!

If you're including all the bands that were lumped into it I'd say I like most of it.

Re: I Hate Grunge!

I think people that dont like grunge stopped listening to rock in the 80s. Grunge saved rock an metal for while - until the internet came along.

Ya think? I love a lot of it. There are some clunkers in there but I listen to bands like PJ, Nirvana, Mudhoney, Afghan Whigs, Soundgarden and Screaming Trees more than any of the big 70's bands (not named Led Zeppelin or Aerosmith).

The only bands to come out of that era that were any good were Alice In Chains and Smashing Pumpkins.
