If you don't agree with this forum, it's rules, people or specified genre, then find a new one.

I'm disagreeing.

Grunge is not punk. That is the point.

Thats right

where are my supporters when i need them. u guys grow up a little bit. grunge evolved from punk and therefore is a style of punk music.

Grunge (sometimes referred to as the Seattle Sound) is a subgenre of alternative rock that was created in the mid-1980s by bands from the American state of Washington, particularly in the Seattle area. Inspired by hardcore punk,

and thats straight from wikipedia so disagree now!

you're right grunge is not punk.

Its an offshoot of punk.

Just like rock is an offshoot of the blues and bluegrass is an offshoot of country.

If we were to talk about every style of music that is influenced by punk here, we'd be talking about pretty much every style of music and things would get very confusing.

You need to grow up a little bit. Admit that you don't always have to be right and go post about grunge in the Modern Rock forum to your heart's content.

Well i agree that nirvana should probally be in the modern rock cause it is relatively modern. But im saying if nirvana was around in the 70s/early 80s it would belong here.

ugh...just because kurt cobain was a pistols, stooges and black flag fan doesn't mean that grunge is an offshoot of punk, especially hardcore punk.
Quote by BrianApocalypse
Rancid are the best punk band ever.

Tim Armstrong is a songwriting genius, is a complete fashion diva and has an incredible singing voice.

He doesn't sound like Opie from family guy at all.

Thrash metal also evolved from punk. You don't see us making Metallica and Megadeth threads in here, do you?

Because it is more modern than punk. Punk started over 30 years ago.

This is the punk forum. You'll be hard pressed to find any punks who place grunge with punk. Sure, grunge has punk elements. Kurt Kobain listened to awesome bands like Flipper and Void, but he's still no punk. Punk elements have permeated most forms of music that came during and after punk.

even if they had punk sounding songs it doesnt make them a punk band, just because Rancid dabbled in some ska doesnt make them a ska band...

CBGB wants to be famous like the others such as Green Day and Offspring. They don't want to be a underground punk band.

Use proper grammar, it will help you articulate your point a lot better and people will think you're a lot smarter.

Grammar does mean ****. It really helps people have an easier time reading and understanding what you're trying to say. Are you telling me it doesn't make him look stupid? I'm not saying he is, but it sure makes him look it.

Did I insult the kid? I don't think so, and I could have. I don't think I was being an asshole. Also it's just harder to read with those grammar mistakes and word replacing, it doesn't flow well.

Exactly.

That's why there's a grunge thread in the modern rock forum.

^Yeah, I know that, but not enough people. A good number of people here know and enjoy emo. I'm not saying I don't enjoy grunge, it's just that it's generally not a genre listened to by a lot of the regulars.

We can all go back to makin' fun of poserz and drinkin' 40's.

You know, if Grunge came from punk...then by his standards we can talk about Reggae...right?
