    LOVE GRUNGE. Always rocking Alice in Chains. The Smashing Pumpkins' (kind of grunge I guess) earlier stuff is usually in my playlist too.

    I played Pool a couple of times with the man ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rick_Parashar )that produced Pearl Jam's "Ten" album and many others. He frequented a neighborhood bar near my place when I lived in Seattle. He's quite the alcoholic.

    Bands just don't make rock like they used to

    Foo Fighter's latest album is awesome though. They're one of the few relevant rock bands still doing thangs.

    Peace and love, spoonman!

    I missed this yesterday haha...yah, words fail me. But if you were interested in a general understanding of the experience... listen from .15 to approx .40 - 500 times in a row.

    I may have been able to compete with 'drunk Spoonman guy' with this song tbh...although the transition is far more distinct in the studio version as opposed to live...which is what I'm attaching.
    While I love this song this singer is awful imo. And on more than one occasion I've only listened up to approx 1.30 (in this clip)...before starting it all over again haha.

    *The red-headed dude who's name I can't remember right now has a great voice though...and has always struck me as the e8w9 poster child for some reason although idk.

    **Grohl's *killing it*

    When it comes to the instant love and appreciation of Nirvana...I believe I may have had a type-related advantage haha! Still, with how 'Fi-on-steroids-unpolished' everything is... some of their songs I only came to love by accident.

    This is worth watching when you get a chance if only for the Boston cover in the beginning haha.
    At .25 Cobain looks over at Novoselic and it gets me every time. If you are an INFP you will have made that same look a million times as well. <-I know that sounds so strange but I'm asking you to take my word for this haha! I do really love this performance...Guitar solo 3.30

    I know Nirvana is categorized as grunge but I never really saw it. I think they're quite a bit different than many of the other bands listed. They have more of a experimental Pixies/ Sonic Youth sensibility, with some seriously strong Fi undertones, but an undercurrent of British Invasion love and the obvious punk influence. I was the perfect age when this music came out (teens) and let me tell you, it kicked ass.

    Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, STP are entirely different. I don't like the sound at all. I find it tremendously boring and without soul. I hated it when I was the age for it and I hate it now.

    Nirvana is pure grunge... grunge is a mixture of punk, heavy metal and alternative rock influences, which is everything you listed in your post. How...how can you say PJ, or Soundgarden had no soul? Okay I am not a big fun of Soundgarden either, but I have to admit, they have one huge beautiful soul... All grunge seems very Fi to me. And PJ... OMG Pearl Jam... Eddie Vedder is the person, with the biggest singing passion ever, all feelings, all energy and all anger is right in his voice and his face when he sings...
    I think I've never heard a song sang more emotionally...the guy crys almost the whole song ... BTW: I don't see Soundgarden, or PJ as that pure grunge badns. Soundagarden are more alternative rock and PJ more classic rock, but still you can hear the grunge sound of the 90's in their music. Classic grunge would be more...Nirvana, Mudhoney, Hole...I am thinking about Alice, but they were pretty heavy metal, so also not so pure classic grunge.

    Ah, I saw Myles Kennedy with Alterbridge their first tour after their debut album. Those guys rock... I'm also a fan of Creed Mark Tremonti is a beast.

    Cartoons are awesome! I tried to watch some episodes of Adventure Time, but the whole show seems like one huge LSD trip . Regular Show can be pretty crazy also, but it at least doesn't remind me of any drung
    Yeah, that's probably why I love it. I could talk about it for hours... I'll spare you.

    and to your thing.... I am deadly serious, when I say I will...I will be a rockstar ! And all these soft/rock melody ripping bands, will suddenly stop to exist and everyone will listen to grunge and hard rock ... And I will party so hard and die really really young in my luxury flat in Paris with the bottle of Jack Daniel's in my heand
    I'm waitin' for the day. Don't forget about me when you're three shots from death, I wanna join in too.

    Haha, love the Spoonman-inspired stories! That is so cool. What a fun person to date

    Peace, love, and spoonman!
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Dave Grohl is the most charismatic motherfucker on Earth. His music helped get me my first girlfriend ever She asked what I was listening to in class, Monkey Wrench blew her mind.

    That is a heavy intro.

    When it comes to the instant love and appreciation of Nirvana...I believe I may have had a type-related advantage haha! Still, with how 'Fi-on-steroids-unpolished' everything is... some of their songs I only came to love by accident.

    lol @ that riff seguing into teen spirit. how funky. he sounds damn good live.

    i did like nirvana, i obsessed over teen spirit like everyone else probably, playing it over and over... she just ruined any depth i might have had with the band, lolz.

    You're so lucky! Well...I will sound like all these hipster teenagers , but I didn't have a chance to see any of these bands. The only one I saw, was PJ last year in Prague, but still those 90's time won't ever come back and I won't ever had a chance to experience this era! It's so unfair, that I was born into Britney Spear's ass licking era... And since that everything is going downhill... "The only direction we flow is down
    Down, oh down
    Down, oh down
    Down, oh down" ... Nope...I actually really believe there is one small chance, the good old times can a be a good future times...if you know what I mean. And oh yeah, I will call you at my party to my super luxury flat, but you know I probably will be super famous and super missunderstood amazing rockstar, so I won't have much time for remembering superunknown people .
