in 2013 i didn't think i'd be seeing (the mostly original lineups) of Mudhoney and Soundgarden in the span of 5 days, but it happened.

Dunno, I guess they were classified as such, but i never considered Mudhoney to be grunge, despite being on Subpop, etc. When the 'Touch Me, I'm Sick' single came out, I felt as if it was an extension of the Stooges more than anything else.

totally. i did an interview w/ Mark and Steve before the show and we talked about that a bit. i think it was the Seattle connection more than anything else (also apparently Mark is credited w/ the first use of the term, if you believe wikipedia)

the only band from the grunge era i can still really tolerate is AIC. idk why. tastes have changed. then again, i was never super into grunge to begin with, when it really started becoming popular, i was into it, but quickly segued into the local punk scene.

I own a Mudhoney album, it is worse than a Ting Tings album I also own for some reason.

alice in chains were always sh!tty hair metal to me...
AIC was most definitely not hair metal. It was that grunge/alternative/seattle sound, but far more dark than any of the others. Last time I saw em was a few summers ago in Phoenix. Was definitely a good show. ****ty hair metal had guitars tuned higher, vocals that were higher, guys that looked like pretty boys, guitar solos, and so on. There was huge focus on the production of the entire thing, and it got to the point where people were so sick of it that grunge was born, and it was almost the opposite of everything that ****ty hair metal was. That is probably why they were singing alice, "in chains", to make fun of it.
