    I was just about to make a thread on this in The Lounge.

    It's weird how we find out about this stuff after the fact.

    Subs...

    I just watched a Vice produced documentary on the start of Grunge/Sub Pop/Cobain. There was no mention of Bam Bam.

    Sidebar, what's the difference between Grunge and Punk? Only difference I hear is a "slower" tempo with Grunge...and I don't even think it's slower, it's just a different cadence.

    :leostare:“She was one of the pioneers of grunge, but it’s a stretch to say any one band/person invented a whole genre.”

    I always thought they were punk though

    I always thought sonic youth invented the grunge sound in the mid 80s but I wouldn't be surprised if this were true

    Well, “Grunge” kinda became a catch all term for alt rock from Seattle. Grunge as we knew it/know it was/is kinda like the confluence of hard rock, heavy metal, and punk. That’s why you have grunge bands that lean more on the punk side(IE Nirvana) and then you got grunge bands that lean more on the hard rock side(Pearl Jam), and then you got grunge bands that lean more on the Metal side(Alice N Chains) and then you got Soundgarden that straddles between Metal/Punk(Soundgarden). That’s why a grunge band like Nirvana was featured on the 1991 documentary “The Year That Punk Broke” but then you’d have a grunge band like Alice N Chains on tour in 1990 with Metal bands like Metallica.One of the biggest influences of the Seattle grunge sound was the punk rock band Black Flag. They had a 1984 album called “My War” which had slower tempo Punk Grooves that were very popular in Seattle in the early 80s. Then there were other bands like The UMen who also were a large influence on what would become grunge. This is my first time hearing about Bam Bam and Tina Bell though. :ohhh:

    Yea you can make the argument what Tina Bell and crew were doing definitely laid the groundwork for grunge music. Sonically it was ahead of its time. There was nothing quite like that sound in the mid 80s.

    A black woman also came up with the idea and script for both the Terminator and the Matrix before the studios took them. She's been trying to sue for years

    John Connor and Neo are the same person...
