I know they were lumped in with them due to the similar influences (pixies, Husker du etc) and they toured with most of the grunge bands (nirvana, Pearl jam, Soundgarden) back in the day. I just prefer the cleaner pixies meets husker du sound.


Only an idiot would lump Jawbreaker in with (again, wretch) "grunge". Not saying that that idiot is you, but whoever sold you on that notion....

I grew up on Nirvana and Soundgarden; still think they’re both fantastic bands. Cornell was a once in a lifetime vocalist. I came to appreciate AIC a bit later on and particularly enjoy their eps and self titled album.

Guess it comes down to age. If you're my age you grew up with grunge & alternative rock, and it was a stepping stone towards the more extreme genres.
If you're older you probably hated all those 'new genres' as a metalhead. But that generation is still very much into bands like Kiss, AC/DC, Scorpions (some generalisation here, of course).

Just saying, the music we listened to when we were wee kids tends to be appreciated even as we grow older.

Absolutely. And it goes the other way too - for a lot of people young enough not to have seen it at the time it probably comes across like grandpa (or at least drunk uncle) music much like Kiss did to me then - dated, corny, not extreme etc. but if you happened to be in that place and time and weren’t already into heavier shit that stuff made an impact. I was 10 or 11 when that stuff got suddenly popular, and living in the absolute boondocks. I’m not going to badmouth it now because it was my first exposure to “heavy” music and some of it has stuck with me. I still dig all the Soundgarden albums, AIC unplugged is a fantastic recording and the new ones are solid too.

Twice in a lifetime, we still have Sammy Hagar

This thread needs at least one mention of Seattle's UNWOUND, great grunge/post-hardcore band who put out some albums on Kill Rockstars in the early 90's.

The Numero group recently reissued all their classic stuff on vinyl, great quality pressings too. So now's a great time to discover this band if you don't know them already.


Killer tune indeed! Thanks for recommendation, i already ordered Fake Train reissue via Discogs.

Blame NME when the nirvana/jawbreaker tour happened that's how they hyped it. Failure got categorized as a grunge band as well as did swervedriver not because they were but who they toured with.

(It would be nice to see Primal Rock Therapy comp. on vinyl some day.)



That Cat Butt album someone mentioned is great too.

I recently bought Dirt from Alice In Chains. It's a very good album, though not very appropriate to the coming summer season.

Recommended for rainy autumn or spring.
