I fucking don't like Pearl Jam and I wouldn't even mention STP, which I fucking hate, but many people consider them grunge.

hmm, I still haven't gotten around to listening to STP, but I like PJ a lot. I can see how some grunge fans wouldn't though, some of their songs are a little too guitar-solo-y (for lacque of a better phrase) to be considered grunge for me.

interesting question! well, since i came more from the hard rock/classic rock direction, pearl jam were my first grunge band of choice. i never really got into mudhoney though, even though i did like green river. i never really made friends with tad as well. :roll: but he really blew my mind with tadgarden! :D

I made this thread awhile ago forgetting to mention my own: Melvins.

I just can't get into them, and don't like them at all. Not my style, too metal-y

I've never really liked Pearl Jam, I don't hate them or anything they just don't interest me.
How can I begin anything new with all of yesterday in me?

I don't get how someone can't like the trees... I mean I understand how people can hate some of my favorite bands but I can't see anything to criticize about Screaming Trees. *shrug* all comes down to personal taste i guess

btw megs (i feel weird saying that..) was urs hole? how u said i wouldnt know what it was till i knew you or whatever? lol..
