Dear friends, I have witnessed a terrible crime in my earlier years, and I must come clean.

I witnessed how grunge totally killed hair metal.

But I think hair metal is going again.

You know what...., I also predict the return of metal.

The great amount of YT reaction channels with videos about Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Megadeth and others. They also play a lot Pink Floyd.

Most of this youtubers are hip hop - rap people. Now they love rock.

Call me picky, but around grimy guys all week.

I liked it when bands actually dressed up, and looked good for their audience.

Long blond hair?

It comes from my village in northern Germany.

Everybody else should stop appropriating it.

Sorry Beyonce sister.

Grunge - that's where all the trouble started.

Before that it was like hey bro, grab a six-pack and let's go PARTY!

And then came grunge, and ruined it all.

How so?
Mainly I'd argue, metal had no political message, except that the predominantly white working class could have fun.

Grunge had a kind of seething political awareness about it.

It’s possible that grunge saved the ozone layer.

Dude, The Offspring are neither grunge nor alternative. They initially were a punk band that then went pop. Please, for the love of all that is sacred and holy, let's not totally misclassify clearly genre'd music.

Grunge was/is sort of like Bakersfield in country music or crunk in hiphop. To be grunge, the band had to come out of the Pacific Northwest area (purists will say Seattle only, but the triangle of Portland to Vancouver, to Alaska is represented heavily in grunge music and subculture.) Alternative was the umbrella which covered non Pacific Northwest based bands that tossed on some flannel, turned the distortion way up and slapped down a fuzz pedal in their stomp box, and wrote songs bordering on macabre. The culture is dying out even here in the PNW, sadly. Drugs, hearts, and times have all become a lot harder over the past 20 years and the main influences as far as the music went either killed themselves with addictions (Andrew Wood, Kobain, Cornell) or drifted back into the darkness when they decided not to sell out and the genre's fans got small again to the point that major labels stopped heavily supporting grunge artists.

Music is a frustrating beast at times. I can't really name a stylistic genre that's managed to remain much past a 20 year window. That's unfortunate...
