My excel isnt working, so I cant read the list... but ill suggest some pretty obscure bands (as in uknown) that you may have forgotten:
The Monkeywrench
Bloodloss
Graham Coxon
Fugazi?
Living Colour
Mr. Bungle
Rites of Spring
Dillweed!
Merrick!

+ any band signed to subpop... almost all subpop bands have something grungesque to them, so get on the subpop site and get listing!

Hi lovebattery!

I think you dont have to include those post grunge bands that came after the grunge explosion, cause they are a product of the mainstream opportunism, they are not "grunge" since the real spirit is not "in" them, it is more like plastic, in a few words....
"that is not GRUNGE"

About Graham Coxon, i think you should add them, man you should listen to their single "Freaking Out", it has the power.

And for helping you even more, i´d like you to consider these bands:


Stereophonics (their first stuff "Words Get Around")

Deftones (also their first stuff "Adrenaline")

El Otro Yo (an amazing argentinian band with some more than a decade playing)

The Emergency Blanket (an incredible peruvian band quite similar to Pearl Jam first singles)

Guided By Voices



If you want to know more about the southamerican bands im recommending you, dont doubt and ask me for some tracks, i will upload them,

Take care 8)

Graham Coxon is the ex-guitarist of Blur. But his solo stuff is much "heavier" than Blur and it has a hint of grunge. I heard him on TV once and he started playing a solo much like one you might expect from mudhoney, same effects. Hes good.

Also ask Nirvanaholic about Indian rock, he gave me a link to an Indian alt rock radio station... some of it was pretty grungey but I dont know any names.

adding sub pops bands is a bad idea!
I mean alot of them seem grungey, I think u might have missed some good ones, but ull end up with an indie list... there are so many bands in sub pop that havent got the slightest hint to grunge

and man no need to add creed, puddle of mud bands, after adding them ull end up adding new metal bands and then metal... its just a mess, ull have to stop somewhere and I suggest that u keep those bands out (or maybe I just dont like them)

besides all that
I didn't give a really good look at that list but I found some rocking grunge bands uve missed, some that I really like :(
plus I can set u up with tunes of some grungey bands in Israel
but ill have to speak to u on the msn for all that but I didn't manage to catch u online lately
and then?

If you ever decide that you want to add the new post grunge bands, I have LOTS of suggestions. :wink:

yeah look at Hitler.. He was a monster but he was genious. He conquered whole Europe, half Africa and Russia. I mean no dumbass could do that..

Or Stalin, he industrialised Russia in 5 years.. the UK, France, Belgium.. needed 150 years for that.. But he killed more people himself than the germans did..
