Grunge + Melody = Genius

Postby Namni Nytram on Fri Oct 08, 2004 9:03 pm

agree to an extent, CMS, but i think it's not so much because of the music's intrinsic sell-by date, as the number of lame bands that've taken their cue, and most of their riffs, from nirvana. yes, i recognise that most of them weren't nirvana's in the first place, but they at least did a very good job of it.

i'd pile the lemonheads in with the pop-grunge fabness thing. only got into them recently (ten years late, as usual) and they're fast becoming one of my favourite bands.

Well said Mr rockstar. `Black` from `Munki` is a classic!

Nirvana's Nevermind is a classic album but boy oh boy, it spawned so many crap imitators and possibly the worst time in history for rock music. Pearl Jam anyone?

Paint a Rainbow's on that Rough Trade compilation released recently.

I think.
