...but I can't stand listening to grunge music anymore.
All it sounds like to me is privileged white guys singing about how angsty they felt about their boring suburban adolescence. It probably doesn't help that my work plays the grunge station every morning, I guess. But was Seattle really that terrible in the 90's?
I don't understand it anymore. I don't think that people can't sing about feeling angsty and cynical, but an entire genre dedicated to it makes me feel kind of like come on guys, cul de sacs aren't that bad. I understand the rebelling against conformity, but is self hating songs really combatting that?
I just...I don't get or like it anymore.
