You're not going to like it, but Arctic Monkeys' Favourite Worst Nightmare. I know I said once here I think, but it's my favorite album from them and it's pretty hard to find their albums here before AM was released.

Didn't realize how old this forum would be. But it is very hard to find other people who like grunge these days unfortunately. I discovered grunge when I was 14. I always listened to classic rock growing up, The Rolling Stones and AC/DC were favorites of mine. Then somehow I got involved with rap. Not sure what I was thinking. I couldn't find music that I could truly identify with. Then I heard breed by nirvana for the first time and never looked back. I'm an extremely angsty teen and I love the counter cultural aspect of grunge and challenging yourself to explore life on your own without society telling you what to do. I read a great book called "Grunge is Dead" by Greg Prato. And that exposed me to earlier grunge bands like Mudhoney, Screaming Trees, and Malfunkshun. Grunge changed my life and I am so grateful to all the artists.

You can find lots of grunge fanatics on the internet if you search for grunge pages on social media. There are tons on facebook, for example.

I was 16 in England fresh out of secondary school and enrolled in at Coulsdon College when I befriended a self confessed Grunger/art student...
I asked him as popular thought had lead me to belief in my secondary school Haling Manor High School that Grungers worshipped the Devil, so I asked
"Do you worship the Devil?"
and he said
"What?"
"No?"
So we hit it off, cool guy, got stoned with him a bunch of times.
A bunch of times, knew him for a couple of years after college.
Later, a friend originally from the Philippines who I met getting stoned in Croydon, got me into metal when I was 23..
But... We used to get high/drunk and play the guitar a lot, that was when I retired from harder drugs and happy hardcore music...
I knew all these songs my Filipino friend taught me about from The Black Sheep Bar and Harp Rock Pub in Croydon... but my friend when I was 23 taught me
more about Rage Against the Machine and System of a Down, and what band was what song etc..

Friends.


Family since I grew up with Nevermind by Nirvana in my house on CD too.


Me and music saw me teaching myself guitar when I was 12 and listening to Guns N' Roses records privately as I enjoyed them since I was a baby but when Take That came out and I said I listened to Guns N' Roses, girls my age and a little older who were fans of Take That teased me for liking Guns N' Roses... Later the same thing happened in secondary school, I started listening to Guns N' Roses again (took a little break) and my friends/kids used to tease me, so I was pressured away from Rock...
Then when I was 14 I went to America, came back when I was 15.. Went from South London to Suburban America for half a month in November 2001..
I came back not caring and told everybody when I came back to school of my love of Guns N' Roses and then, around 14/15.. Jimi Hendrix..
I was a self confessed Buddhist guitarist Hippie when I was 15 when I came back to school; I had previously been all 'init init init init ya get me init init init' (but still playing the guitar) before America.
I was 4 when I got into Guns N' Roses.
