stupid label put by the media to describe an indescribable movement of music in the late '80s and early '90s. usually great sounding music that is messed up by idiots who try to make sense of it. NIRVANA is the greatest band ever.

"Grunge is not flannel. Grunge is not long hair. Grunge is not Alice In Chains and whatever. I think Grunge is just a bunch of friends drinking a lot of Henry's and trying to play music when you really can't." --Dave Grohl
Nirvana is grunge. They try to play music when they really can't. Alice in Chains is not grunge. They try to play music when they really can.

In the tradistion of "Rastafarian" grunge describes an immage, attitude and genre of music. The apperance was mainly modled on the man dubbed "The generation's spokesman" Kurt Cobain, and featured flannel shirts, torn jeans, converse trainers and baggy sweaters. The music was very toned-down/ volume-up version of punk, but where punk was angry, grunge was disilusioned & generally dissatisfied escape to moan at the world.
Begun in seatle (Mainly by Kurt Cobain and the record-label "Sub-Pop") in the early 90's and often called "Generaation-X" grunge was the last pure genre of music we had.
GRUNGE is dead....long live grunge

Sure Nirvana were a Grunge band, but they were mainstream. Mainstream Grunge isn't real Grunge in my opinion. The Real Grunge bands were Mudhoney, Alice In Chains, Melvins, Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone, Screaming Trees, Green River, Malfunkshun etc.

Smashing Pumpkins, Jane's Addiction, and Sonic Youth, although great bands, were NOT Grunge.
If you want great Grunge rock listen to "Piece of Cake" by Mudhoney, "Houdini" by Melvins, and "Dirt" by Alice In Chains. And compare that to Nirvana's "Nevermind". Nevermind doesn't even come close.
