Jan 20 Word of the Day
A deranged, poorly-planned attempt to seize power; particularly if an election does not turn out in your favor.
Disgraced attorney Rudy Giuliani’s face became drenched in sweat and hair dye as he invented evidence of widespread voter fraud during President Trump’s clown coup.

A term used to describe a sub-genre of rock music that has been inspired by original grunge music.

Sadly, many fans of original grunge dislike post-grunge music since they feel that post-grunge bands have "watered down" their music and made it "radio friendly" or basically in a way sold out to mainstream music. Unfortunately this is somewhat true. Just as with any genre of music, there are bands that are willing to give up their unique musical style and creativity that gives their music it's power just to make it in the music industry. However, this does not apply to all post-grunge bands.

A lot of the post-grunge sound is simply an evolution in music. Just as grunge was inspired from rock music such as punk and metal, post-grunge is an inspiration of grunge music and another genre such as metal, heavy metal, soft rock, blues, etc.......which ever the band would like to use to express themselves.

As long as the band is putting their heart & soul into their music, there is nothing wrong with a post-grunge style. Post-grunge bands deserve equal respect. Not every person will have the same taste in music.
Grunger 1: Uggghhh......I don't like post-grunge music. It sounds watered down and mainstream.....like they sold out to the music industry. It's kinda insulting to grunge music.

Grunger 2: Yeah a lot of bands have.....but not all. Some are just incorporating another style of music with good old grunge. Doesn't mean they're compromising the creativity and emotion they put in their music. They're just playing their music in a way that they feel expresses them best. Candlebox, Bush, and Seether are a few of my favorite post-grunge bands.

Grunger 1: Hmmm......yeah I think you've got a point there. I'm just not really fond of that particular sound I guess.

Post-grunge emerged in the mid-90s, and is basically a watered-down, radio-friendly verion of grunge music.
The other definition is wrong. Soundgarden are NOT post-grunge.

post-grunge: Bush, Candlebox, Collective Soul, Foo Fighters, Live, Staind, Creed, Fuel, Godsmack, Nickelback, Puddle of Mudd, Seether etc.

Post-grunge sucks.

Music that killed grunge worse than a bullet to Kurt Cobain's head or Layne Staley's speedball overdose ever could. Post-grunge is a more mainstream version of grunge music, which seems a rather inoffensive thing at first, but contemporary acts such as Puddle of Mudd, Nickelback, Three Doors Down, Godsmack, Staind, Creed and Three Days Grace reveals the genre to be a parody of original grunge. Exaggerated attempts at singing like Eddie Vedder, predictable and formulatic song structures, and insincere angst with no artistic quality are characteristics of post-grunge.
(Listening to typical rock radio station)

Thomas: Hey, this kinda sounds like Alice in Chains, only the guitar sucks, the lyrics are trite, and the singer's vocal range is garbage.

Fred: Yeah, that's Godsmack, another post-grunge act.
