I don't think I "miss" grunge. I never liked that word anyway. I am thankful that bands like Pearl Jam and Soundgarden came from that era, though. I'd include the Pumpkins, but I am not sure they really fit. I also think that while I'm glad Nirvana came along and put a halt to what was popular musically at the time, that they were and remain overrated.

The Singles soundtrack is amazing, agreed, and it's a good film as well.

The closest I can get to rock now, living in a city of 1,000,000 is either Goo Goo Dolls knock offs, Hinder, or ELO. Do you have any idea how awful that is? And I'm not gonna go so far as to say it's Grunge's fault or anything, but I'm not going to be happy about grunge taking mainstream hair metal off the radio either.

I'd take Sweet Child O Mine over Iris every. single. day.
What, you don't like nu-metal or Nickelback? How dare you insult Grunge's long-term legacy, you ass.

You disgust me.

Really.

Gin Blossoms were during Grunge and despite a reunion last year, they hadn't put out an album since about 1994 and their big album and breakthrough was in 1992.

Goo Goo Dolls is commercially derivite recycled pre-packaged corporate driven marketing sell-out garbage. They're rock and roll's Pussy Cat Dolls. If you want to hear why they disgust me soooooo much, listen to their Superstar Carwash album, then listen to Let Love In. The difference is appalling.

I've haven't heard Live on the radio since 1994.

However, I'm not saying there aren't any good bands, I'm saying you just can't hear them on mainstream radio anymore and it's even rarer to see them at the of the mainstream singles charts.

Oh, and I do like Nickelback *because* they remind me of those old hair metal bands. I'd never go see them in concert or buy an album, but How You Remind Me & Photograph are good songs.

Grunge (and honest rock and roll on the radio) died the day Creed was born.

While Smashing Pumpkins were signed originally to Sub Pop, the original grunge label, they were far too arty to be grunge.

Plus, it's ironic to hate hair metal and love grunge because most of those bands, with the exception of Nirvana, started out as hair metal bands -> Soundgarden, Alice In Chains & Mother Love Bone (precursor to Pearl Jam). And even PJ were pretty hair metalish at least in look and marketing at the *very* beginning.

We need to do a Grunge survivor!

btw, great thread!

Well, I grew up with grunge, so of course it holds a special place.

Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden are legendary bands.

I always liked Nirvana, but never seem to connect with them as much as the afore mentioned bands.

Early Goo Goo Dolls weren't bad, but they were way too influenced by the Replacements to the point of sounding a lot like them. I was watching Nightmare on Elm Street 6 the other day (it came out in 1991) and I didn't realize it until seeing it again for the first time in a long time, Goo Goo Dolls had music in that film.. And they sound totally different from how they sound now..

They were! Goo Goo Dolls used to tour with the 'Mats and Paul Westerberg wrote a song for them on the Superstar Carwash album - We Are The Normal. In a Spin magazine article in 1993 or so, Paul even went on to declare the Dolls would be the next Replacements... boy was he off.

I think the radio stations we have up in this neck of the woods are particularly terrible. Have you ever tried 89.3 the Current? There is some decent rock out there its just that the stations up here don't play it. The stations are much better in Chicago.

I listen to KQ mostly because at least when they have their "on demand" where listeners email in a bunch of songs, you can get some good stuff. And of course, they play the greatest power trio ever - Rush.

Cool list but for STP, I'd choose Vasoline and Plush. Creep bores me.
