Wednesday Question: Best Grunge Bands?
This week, Dave Grohl insisted that grunge music "never went away." And when a dude from Nirvana says that, you can probably take his word for it. But that got us thinking: if it never went away, then maybe it's just a little off-radar and we're not picking up on it. It's times like this that we turn to UG readers to get some pro advice for our weekly question, which is: What are the best grunge bands ever? Hopefully some great underground bands will get a name check on this one. To guide the discussion, let's stick to Grohl's fairly loose definition of grunge: "loud a-s guitars, loud a-s drums, and screaming a-s vocals." Basically, any acts with a punk spirit and underground vibe who know how to mix high-energy with a good dose of songwriting. No metal, please - it might technically fit Grohl's "loud" definition, but you can probably guess that it's a little off-topic this time. The usual rules apply: one nomination per comment, and upvote posts that you agree with. YouTube videos are welcome. We'll post the results in a raucous top 10 list this Friday.
