Song title provides a nice definition of my opinion of them (maybe we could juxtapose the two concepts).

Band is good, not great, has some absolute shitty moments, alot, and some divinely inspirated.

Very, very overrated.

What's your point? Who was talking about where alternative music derived from?

The Grunge bands from Seattle popularized alternative music. Fact.

So that wasn't the Replacement on Saturday Night Live in the 80s? And REM never happened?

Grunge popularized punk, but "alternative" had been out there for awhile. Talking Heads? Depeche Mode? Those bands were pretty popular in the 80s.

re: Your favorite grunge song
I will say, to a large degree, the grunge scene is what propelled all the clear channel stations (etc.) to change formatting to "Alternative" radio... which lead to a very dire period in "alternative" music...

wow...couldn't disagree more

I will take that "dire" period over the moody wall of noise indie crap that is considered alternative these days 100/100 times.

Both new wave bands.

How did grunge popularize punk?

And yes alternative music had been around forever but the genre was considered underground in the 80s and it wasn't popularized until the 90s.

My friend, the hey day of indie rock was in the 90's... when it very much still rocked, as a whole...

I tend to agree with you on the assessment of the indie rock of today... but then again, the two eras are apple and oranges and the name "indie rock" has been co-opted by any kind of music not on a major (ironic, I know)... that's kind of marginalized the term and kinda left it with no significant value IMO

I think what he's saying is grunge is the first genre of music to hit the mainstream that really was directly influence by and incorporated punk into the music... Hence, the documentary and general sentiment... "1991: The Year Punk Broke"
