Seattle-based punk rock merged with 70's hard rock and Sabbath-esque heavy metal that emerged in the mid-80's. Pioneers of the sound include Green River and Soundgarden. Green River is considered to be the first crucial grunge band, the band that coined the term and truly kickstarted the then-new Seattle Sound. The band split toward the late 80's, forming Mother Love Bone and Mudhoney in its wake. By 1990, MLB was considered the biggest band in Seattle, and was poised to break the scene wide open, but tragically singer Andrew Wood died just days before their major label debut. Grunge seemed to lose momentum for a year or so, but in 1991 all that would change with the release of Nirvana's Nevermind and Pearl Jam's Ten. Smells Like Teen Spirit became a Top 10 Hit on the Hot 100 and received heavy rotation on MTV, instigating the grunge revolution. Jeremy won four VMA's in 1993, including video of the year. In the early 90's, grunge was THE most dominant music genre in America, however, with the death of Kurt Cobain in 1994 and Pearl Jams backing-away from the spotlight, grunge quickly lost momentum once again. In its place came the generic watered down genre known as post-grunge, filled with forgettable bands like Bush and Silverchair. Not long after the breakup of Soundgarden in 1997, pop-punk, nu metal, and teen pop took hold and seriously fucked popular music. Layne Staley of Alice in Chains' death in 2002 was grunge's death knell.
Grunge music is often credited for killing hairmetal and 80's-style pop rock, and when grunge was fresh and dominant this was thought of as a good thing, and rightly so...but the bands that took over after end of grunge, like Korn, Linkin Park, Slipknot, Blink 182, and eventually Fall Out Boy etc., are bands horrible enough to the point that even the cheesiest, most asinine hairband (see Tuff) is preferable.

truelly cool type of music. People get carried away with thinking it was the death of metal ect. what it truelly is is some pretty kickass music, some great songs came from grunge artists. I would describe the sound as simply hard rock that goes up and sniffs the line of heavy metal. people say it stems from punk, and im just not seeing any reasons why... but why downplay their opinions? all you need to know is grunge is good. Like music for how it sounds, not what you think it did or didnt do for your scene. An era of truelly original music.
ALICE IN CHAINS-, awesome hard rockin mothas

SOUNDGARDEN, awesome hard rockin mothas

PEARL JAM- good ass band

NIRVANA- people need to stop downplaying nirvana, their not my favorite, but if you claim youve never tapped your foot when smells like teen spirit came on the radio your a downright liar

STP- is fuckin amazing nigs

IRON MAIDEN- for sure not grunge.... however IS the best band in the world.... UP THE FUCKING IRONS! HEAVY METAL LIVES

Mudhoney. Period. Mudhoney basically is Grunge itself. As the best grunge band, Mudhoney blows Nirvana out of the water, damn they rock so hard. Mudhoney did not create grunge though. Neither did Nirvana or The Melvins, like the other people said. Malfunkshun created grunge, so be thankful, people.
The Grungiest song ever is "Thirteenth Floor Opening" by Mudhoney. The sound is so dirty in that song. I love Grunge.

Nirvana doesn't fit into the category of music and neither do nay other band because everyone has a different meaning of grunge or punk or all those names you use to classify bands or an era under. Nirvana don't sound like any other band and they're an awsome band (the best in my opinion).

Greg Ginn said"The REM and Nirvana successes don't mean much to me except as a potential distraction for bands who want to cash in on the trend. Don't try to sound like someone else. REM and Nirvana don't sound like anyone else".

Tom petty said "Nirvana to me was the most significant thing since the Beatles"

grunge is a category of music

one of the best types of rock ever. better then hair metal who only cared about aperance then thier music. poetic-like lyrics, and dirty distorted guitar riffs. its such a shame no a days we have to listen to rap and hip hop that has no talent. if kurt cobain was still alive, im positive that rap and hip hop wouldent even be in existence. but grunge isint just nirvana, its also the smashing pumpkins, pearl jam, and last and posible the best grunge band ALICE IN CHAINS. its sad that layne had to die. but now alice in chains reformed with a new singer and are now touring with thier old songs. and also thay might be coming out with a new album. o ya.....i forgot the stone temple pilots.
grunge - amazing.
metal- good.
hair metal- all image no talent.
rock- the best type of music with the exeption of emo and the punk now a days.
punk- use to be good.
rap- crap.
hip hop- same as rap, either way thay both need to die out.
