Music Dawn's grunge and 80's alternative thread

Recommended Posts

(edited)

I want to make a thread where I can discuss bands such as Sonic Youth, The Pixies, Nirvana and Alice in Chains. I was going to just call this the "alternative thread" but I know if I did people would just end posting stuff like Coldplay.

Anyways, post away.

 

EDIT: Just so this thread doesn't die out, I'm allowing Radiohead on here.

Goo is by far sonic youth's best release, tho

 

You can't have an 80s "alternative" thread without me posting the greatest post-punk band of all time. They were so abrasive in their early days ;_;

I prefer Sister and Daydream Nation, but Goo is really good. And yea, you're aloud to post post-punk. You can also post stuff like The Smiths and The Cure.

Maybe you should just make it allow more than 80's Alternative, because honestly if you're that anti-Coldplay their debut album is from 2000 (Do you not know how to google?).

 

Anyways Radiohead's allowed so I'm in here now

 

Also the first person to post Muse will not be forgiven.

Well, Nickleback is from the 90's and so is Creed. But so are Oasis and The Smashing Pumpkins, I'll think about it. I just find Coldplay to be really bland.

I don't think that anyone in their right mind would post Nickelback, as for Creed, I dislike them as well, but honestly there is much worse out there.

 

Anyways so I don't end up just endlessly posting Radiohead have some of The Cure

Ok, well, I don't listen to much of grunge or alternative, but I like this Nirvana song:

 

 

 

Well, Nickleback is from the 90's 

 

Please for the love of god, do not let anyone post Nickelback ;_;

Well you never know... I've seen people on here say that they like Nickelback. I also don't want people to post any pop punk because there's already thread for that.

 

Alice in Chains is good shit yo.

Anyone who posts Nickelback will not be tolerated, the posting of a song by the band Nickelback can result in penalties such as the electric chair and fireing squad.

Pop Punk and Alternative aren't the same, and yes there are some, not even a handful of people who would actually say that Nickelback are good.

 

Anyways some of Radiohead's more trip-esque material

Some people consider Blink 182 "alternative". Anyways, since you're spamming your favorite band to death, I thought I'd do the same to my favorite band.

 

This actually my favorite song by Nirvana, EVER.

 

And I like this one a lot too.

For the sake of not running out of Radiohead songs to post I'm gonna leave Depeche Mode here, yes they are synthpop-ish though they were one of the notable bands for the Alternative radio back in the 80's and 90's.

I'll so enjoy this thread :)

 

Now, for some Soundgarden! Pretty obvious that they are my favorite band of all time, I can't really say any song that they've made that I don't like, they are just THAT perfect!

 

Because Superunknown is one awesome album

My favorite song of all time, it's so powerful that it gives me goosebumps :P

You know what? Who cares if Oasis aren't from the 80's, for the fact of how they are closely related to 80's alternative music, bands like Oasis should be allowed to be posted here

Oh alright then, you can post stuff like Oasis, The Smashing Pumpkins and Weezer. Just don't post any Nickleback, Creed or blink 182.

I won't be so active here in the near future, my laptop just broke so I'm forced to use my second laptop which isn't always available. I also got a faster internet connection, but it seems to be very troublesome at the start so using Youtube is pain in the ass. Sorry for that :P

 

 

Anyways, gonna post some of Soundgarden's older stuff from Badmotorfinger and earlier

I'll probably post something different next time

Does Hüsker Dü count?

 

My dad's really into this band, I think they're alright.

 

My favorite album by them is Warehouse: Stories and Songs. They're other stuff I don't really like as much.

 

I'll go ahead and post the first song on that album, and maybe someone could tell me if they qualify as 80's grunge/alternative.

Love this Nirvana song and I mean its hard to dislike any of their songs. Grunge of the 90's did something right, something new for the time and it was very unique heavy bass sound, hard rocking I simply love it. Soundgarden, Nirvana, Stone Temple Piolts, Bush etc.

Husker Du are alright, though I wouldn't consider myself a huge fan. I don't think that Dawn would really have a problem with them being posted here, but anyways leaving Melvins here, Sludge + Grunge = Awesome

Yes, they count. OMFG what a genre n00b.

 

I'm gonna post some Fugazi, 13 Songs is one of my favorite albums of the 80's. It's so much better than all those crappy hair bands from that era.

Sorry, I was never able to get into R.E.M I don't know why but for some reason I just am not a fan of their stuff.

 

Anyways have some Alice In Chains

R.E.M.'s alright, I just like Sonic Youth a lot more. They have a few good songs like Everybody Hurts and Radio Free Europe.

Speaking of Sonic Youth.
