10 of The Greatest Grunge Bands of All Time!
Grunge. A word that is reminiscent of filth and grime, it actually refers to a musical genre that once dominated the airwaves born of angst and a sense of disenchantment in politics, the system and just life in general. It's origins stem from the 80s alternative rock scene in America, but it is more closely associated with the earlier part of the 90s when it was popularized.
A fusion of punk rock ethics, metal tuning and catchy pop riffs, it is typified by guttural, growly vocals over screeching, unpolished guitar noise usually over a quiet verse, loud chorus dynamic. Here we list just a few of the best bands to emerge from the genre and make a mark.
