Grunge : An Innovation Of Freedom And Teen Angst I am interested in this topic, because I listen to grunge music most of my time. Therefore, this makes it easier for me do a presentaion on it. Grunge music started in the mid 1980s and started to fade away in the late 1990s mostly because band members started dying off.

Grunge's sound partly results from Seattle's isolation from other music scenes. Grunge is a subgenre of alternative rock that emerged during the mid-1980s in the American state of Washington, particularly in the Seattle area. Inspired by hardcore punk, heavy metal and indie rock, grunge is generally characterized by heavily distorted electric guitars, contrasting song dynamics, and apathetic or angst-filled lyrics. Bands such as Nirvana, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, STP, and Pearl Jam play grunge music. These bands sang about what younger people, mostly teens, were going through like divorce, drug abuse, etc. By Drew Settecase The rise of grunge bands, like Nirvana and Pearl Jam sent the hair bands like Poison on the back burner and it also seriously influenced fashion at the time.
