Grunge was a musical style of the early to mid 90s. It was generally played on electric Guitars and took influences from rock, metal and punk. Aesthetically, it was the antithesis of the 'rock star' mentality so prevalent in the 80s and rejected fancy clothes, preferring to appear scruffy and down-and-out. Some leading bands were Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.

Can people play Grunge nowadays?

Most of the grunge bends that played in the '90s still play today, even Nirvana, as the two left members have their own bands. Also Pearl Jam, Mudhoney, Alice in Chains. This on the one hand means that grunge is still played today. On the other hand I think that grunge is not only a rock genre, it is a movement. I feel pretty grunge today, as we confrunt the same problems. I think that real things in nature don't disappear, only transform. I think that grunge has been assimilated in new genres. One good example is Nine Black Alps that I think is real
