New on ‘Stuff That Matters’, GRUNGE! I know what you’re thinking… Kurt Cobain… Smells Like- THAT’S THE ONLY SONG YOU KNOW! There’s more than just Kurt to the grunge scene, you might even be surprised.
It wasn’t Kurt who made us notice the alternative sub-genre, grunge, it was actually Mark Arm from Green River and Mudhoney. He even said that he gathered the term from the Australian music scene back then who were already describing their own music as grunge. There’s apparently more to grunge than its dissonant harmonies and distorted guitars, according to Marc Jacobs, grunge could be big in fashion, and so it was in the mid-90s. However, there remains this question of whether grunge is dead… is it?
