Like I know Nirvana started grunge, but AiC and Nirvana formed in the same year. Plus Nirvana always felt more punk rockish. AiC was more drug addled and mellow.

Grunge is actually a musical movement, not a genre. People who say it is a genre as ridiculous as people who says the '60s Hippy Rock was a genre. No, it was merely several bands doing similar things at the same time. Also, AiC is typically associated with alternative rock, not the grunge movement.

Their newer stuff is associated with alt, but their pre-Duvall stuff was considered grunge.

Crazysam isn't really crazy.



Um...thanks, I think.


I know I do say a lot of shit that people disagree with, but I try to not be "crazy" (read: completely illogical).

Um...as I said, "grunge" is NOT a genre. Stop looking at wikipedia and assuming it is. 90% of grunge (including Nirvana, btw) is alt rock. If you don't believe me, then learn why it's called alt. (Hint: it stands for "alternative". What could it have possibly been an alternative to, musically? What other music was there at the time of the late '80s?) Learning about a movement's history typically explains why it's a musical movement and not a genre. Likewise, learning about a genre's history typically explains why it is a distinct genre.

People on UG complain why rock music is getting more and more diluted and crappy and yet seem to spend more time debating and arguing over genres than just shutting up and playing.

Even if they did, what does it matter? What difference does it make? Why would anyone care?

If that were true, then the hippies doing their thing in the '60s would be a genre. Besides, as I said, most of those bands were alt rock. AiC was a bit more on the alt metal side though, I'll admit.

Wait, wait, wait...so, guys like Hendrix were in the same genre as people like Janis Joplin?

Not quite sure how you'd justify putting folk musicians in the same category as blues-based rock.

This strangely seems to go along with the Websters definition of what a genre "a category of artistic, musical, or literary composition characterized by a particular style, form, or content"

And I have to agree with TS that Alice in Chains was more grunge that Nirvana IMO

But not along the lines of why genres exist. Genres are assumed to share certain musical traits.

No, you said, "It was", which could mean one of several things. I'm assuming you were referring to '60s hippes, not my summation of AiC as on the alt metal end of things, since we've been discussing genres.
