JunkBox e21 – 1990 Grunge Punk Stupidity


Grunge, a subgenre of alternative rock that emerged during the mid-1980s. Inspired by hardcore punk, heavy metal, and indie rock, grunge is generally characterized by heavily distorted electric guitars, contrasting song dynamics, “growling” vocals and apathetic or angst-filled lyrics. The grunge aesthetic is stripped-down compared with other forms of rock music, and many grunge musicians were noted for their unkempt appearances and rejection of theatrics. Stupid.
