Throwback Thursday : The Post-Grunge World

I was watching a documentary on Vh1 Classic about the classification of the Metal genres evolution. The episode was all about whether or not grunge has a place in the metal history tree. Click the link above and watch it. It’s a great find.

Fashion started to change in the mid to late 90s. Some say that the death of Kurt Cobain was literally the end of the grunge movement. The truth is the scene had run its course (at least, that’s how it’s told from the key figures). It was time for a change and something to bring us out of the sadness that we felt when the scene lost it’s unconscious spokesman. So, we started to see brighter colors, more vivid graphic tees, and an all around sense of a technicolor candy coated glossy world. Almost a complete 180 turn. I for one was in high school in the late 90s so I remember these times well, watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer on TV and clutching my Delia*s catalog.

      “The real Grunge generation”, hahaha, right. The real Grunge generation was when I was a teenager in the early 90s. This now is just the “Retro Grunge generation”.
