thank god it rescued us from the "metal" bands of the 80's
Vs. and Vitology certainly had their share of filler, but Ten is a great start to finish rock record. Nevermind is even better.Really?!?! I think Pearl Jam 10 is awesome top to bottom and should be listened to as such.
I liked the 80's a bit better, but in retrospect, the 90's was cool too. Why does it have to be one or the other? I like variety.
Because musicians like to invent rules, despite hating rules and structure.
I don't have an answer, but ever since grunge came along, it became popular to hate on anything 80's. I think the simplest answer might be that it was easier to identify with grunge era musicians because they were basically your neighbors and friends.Why does it ALWAYS ALWAYS have to be this era .vs that era?
I loved some of the 80s bands (great players, great riffs and killer all time anthems) and I also absolutely LOVE 90s rock as well! Why does it have to be ok I like this era, therefore I hate this era or this 1 is better, bla bla bla bla
Much like 80's metal, you have your pioneers. By the time record execs figure out that it's going to sell, they begin assembling and producing bands, as well as ramming the genre down the publics' throat. By the time your 3rd generation copy cat bands arrive, like Trixter, it's pretty much over.What killed grunge? It had a similar 'run' as hairmetal (5 years or so) what killed grunge?
Numetal? (which I enjoy a lil as well) lol
