I just decided with some friends that we'll start a grunge/high-energy rock kind of band.

I havent really seen any grunge bands before (probably because this isn't the early 90's haha) and wondered if anyone has grunge bands that play locally where they live?

Grunge was dead before the 90s even ended


just call it alternative rock or something

Yea but see alternative rock is such a dull term. EVERYONE uses it.


Call it alternative-grunge rock. Problem solved.

Most people would say "grunge" defined the Seattle Scene, not the genre of music.

Some bands that are considered "grunge" from the 90s that are still around today are The Melvins, Love Battery, Flipper, Dinosaur Jr....thats all i can think of right now. Oh of course Pearl Jam too, and the reincarnated Alice in Chains.

those are the real legends right there.... **** Pearl Jam, one of the worst singers I have ever heard. I ****ing can't stand that band. Like every time I hear Pearl Jam I want to shoot someone at how awful the crap coming out of the speakers is.

Adam Sandler made fun of them sooooooo well on Saturday Night Live with the Opera Man skit.

Alice in Chains is pretty good I guess, but I really fail to see how they're grunge. There first album had potential, but they went straight for the "Alternative Rock Sound" crap not too soon afterwards....

****ing corporations and there money....

Also, for anyone searching for "TRUE" Grunge or whatever.... Check out Green River, Mudhoney and Fang.

Is Seether grunge? My friend listens to them and says they are but I'm not sure...

The Hives, god love them, would probably fit this mold with the power chords and high energy. They are exponentially cooler than any grunge band could ever be.

I'd like to see you try to sing with that much emotion.
Or compose a song compared to 'Black'



And no, Seether is not grunge.

EDIT:
Quote by BlackandSilver
Three Days Grace? Breaking Benjamin?

No. Their the opposite of grunge imo....


And FTR There really isn't any grunge bands anymore other then the ones that lasted through the late 80's and 90's. Now there is just people who think having muddy distortion and playing power chords makes them grunge.

No.

There are no more "grunge" bands. Grunge was a word made up by marketers. Just like the term "Stoner Rock" it means nothing.

Screw genres play what ever you want and don't worry about calling it something.

Pop-rock (except New Son Rising and I've never heard of them)

Grunge is dead, simple as that.

I just have to say that I like this idea. I've been thinking for a while that there's probably going to be a revival of sorts of early Nineties/late Eighties rock sounds, and I'm hoping for it.

who gives a sh*t what genre they are or if its for the corporations. listen to it if you think it sounds good or not.

Grunge pretty much died in the mid-90's, if you can pull it off though it'd be pretty cool.

As for your question, I do not know of any grunge bands that play in my area, and my town has a pretty good music scene.
