Geez making me feel old man. I remember what that album did to the rock scene. Overnight killed big hair, glam rock. Like killed it dead just immediately it seemed like. Sure they might have held over on the radio for a bit but as far as the kids during that time it was done.

Ive gone through phases with grunge. Loved it, indifferent, hated it and now back to enjoying it for what its worth. It also helps that it was the major music of my teens so theres a lot of nostalgia.

One thing I find sort of sad is what has happened to music in the last 10-15 years.

In the past each decade had a really distinctive sound. The 60s were the 60s, the 70s had a unique vibe, the 80s were weird and awesome and the 90s was completely different. But over the last 15 years I feel like music has just stagnated. Its either hip hop that sounds similar to hip hop from 7 years ago or its a weird conglomeration of pop with any other genre.

Wheres the really new sounds on the radio? Wheres the Nirvanas or the Bee Gees or the Depeche Modes where all the sudden the sound just shifts as various bands change the entire orbit of music for awhile. Garbage I say!! You youngsters dont know how it was in the good old days!! *bangs cane on floor*

Ah well if you weren't a flibberty gibbet, flitting from one musical genre to another as fashion takes it's course, you'd realise that the underlying bedrock of music just keeps rolling on.

The fly by night fashionistas of the pop world are mere ticks and fleas on the back of the mastiff of rock and roll.

The rock scene has never faltered and is healthier now than it's ever been.
grunge distracted those easily swayed, for a short while.
But it's lack of variety, and just piss poor singers, soon caused it too peter out like the damp fuse it had always been.

Meanwhile pop music keeps turning up the odd gem among the paste.
Adele and and the ginger ninja(as a likewise ginger person I can say that): ed sheeran have really taken the last decade or so by storm.

There's a few bands that have also made a lasting addition to the full cannon of popular music.
I'm not saying i like them - hell I can't stand metallica, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate skill and talent when I see it.

I also reserve the right to consider led zeppelin truly awful and just a total waste of space.

But fashion come or fashion go - Rock will roll on and on for a long time yet.

And for a truly contemporary take on things:

And from teenage popular tv star the evolution of taylor momsen over the last 10 years had been nothing but phenomenal:

Music is in fine fettle, you just have to learn to tune out the dross Smiley

I like your optimism CA but at lest in America Rock hasnt been the driving force of anything for at least 10-15 years. At least.

Dont see that changing anytime soon unfortunately. I like music from all the decades I mentioned as well as some Jazz and Swing. All good stuff.

Speaking of rock though if you have a Switch you might consider getting the game Risk of Rain 2. The sound track is great and the game has generally speaking great reviews.

There are multiple reasons why grunge music died out.  This is hardly one of them.

I've liked pretty much everything I've heard from The Pretty Reckless, but never bought an album of theirs.  I think I just have to buy all of them and give them a full listen through.

Lol, we'll have to agree to disagree on that point. To me grunge was a lot like punk. Anyone could do it and nobody really cared about the singing or music, it was all about the 'cultural' impact and zeitgeist of the time.
Two things that have never played any part in my choosing anything, ever.

I've never given social relevance or contemporary mores any thought when it comes to music.
Culturally - who gives a crap.
I just like music for the music. Smiley
And for me the actual singing is the most important aspect.

So never really gone for classical music, as any singing tends to be in foreign Smiley
It's good for lifts/elevators.....
In times past you'd have found me at the music halls, not the opera.
Lol

I'll pop Noddy holder and Slade in here.
It's been a seasonal classic since I was 4.
And for me Christmas doesn't truly start until Noddy tells me it has Smiley
