I’ve been in a total Grunge Rock mood today. Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots…you get the idea. And it occurred to me that I (don’t think) I’ve done a playlist for this particular sort of music. It further occurred to me that that’s bullshit and must change. Now.
So. I’d love if you contribute. You know I love jammin’ out, and it’s a 90s jams day. Preferably not like…you know, the boy bands. They have their place and all, and that place is (generally) not here. So. Wanna rock with me? Show me what you got.
I’ll start us off. (P.S. You can share links if you wish, but last time I tried a meet & greet, it was a straight up bust. But I hope you’ll at least join in the jam sesh. (I said sesh. Which makes me question what has happened to the state of my cool factor.))
Let’s kick it off with what I’m currently listening to.
Pearl Jam – Even Flow
Next up, a little ditty from my (hands-down) favorite 90s grunge rock group. And just look at Layne’s messy 90s hair. Yum. (I realize many of them have it, but this is some of the best. Except blonde.)
Alice in Chains – Man in the Box
Everybody needs some Aussie now and then. They’re next.
Silverchair – Anthem for the Year 2000
And sex. That’s popular, too, right? Yes. Yes, it is. Though the next song isn’t exactly sexy, despite the title.
Stone Temple Pilots – Sex Type Thing
Hmm. What can I say about the next one without being explicit? Nothing. So I shall only say, allow me to present
Bush – Machinehead
Speaking of bushes, what about gardens?
Soundgarden – Pretty Noose
I had to be an adult to truly appreciate the next one. Now? Yes, please.
Nine Inch Nails – Closer
You’ll notice the next ones are the last on my list. They deserve to be here, regardless of being influential but highly overrated.
Nirvana – Heart-Shaped Box
Aside from RHCP, 90s grunge rock is what I listen to more than anything, I think. That hasn’t been the case lately. But today starts another kick of it, I think. Yeah.
Your turn! What would you add to this list?
