Grunge was here then gone? Or was it a transformation to a alternative sound. Looking back at Grunge bands the #1 is definitely Nirvana, they were the face and sound of grunge. Then you had Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Sound Garden, 4 non blondes, cranberries and a hand full of other groups. But none had the worlds attention like Nirvana did. Kurt Cobain’s crazy lyrics along with some of the best musical arrangements put to music. They could make nothing sound like something and gave it meaning.
Grunge music has what has been called an “ugly” aesthetic, both in the roar of the distorted electric guitars and in the darker lyrical topics. This approach was chosen both to counter the “slick” elegant sound of the then-predominant mainstream rock and because grunge artists wanted to mirror the “ugliness” they saw around them and shine a light on unseen “depths and depravity” of the real world
Here are some of the biggest Grunge songs, that I remember and had to investigate if they were still considered Grunge. Hope you envoy them.
