Best post-grunge band- anyone want to take a crack at it?


Chevelle, 10 Years and Staind, although those bands are more sort of on the alt-metal side of things.

:ugh:
I'm pretty sure that was a rhetorical question.

I like my share of grunge (mostly AiC, Soundgarden, Nirvana's noise-rockish stuff, Tad) and understand why some people dislike it. The way I see it, it was the last point in time that the general public enjoyed seeing a live rock band. It was before hip-hop and the more dance-oriented forms of electronic music (think Daft Punk) became super popular. In that way, it was really the last gasp of rock music being relevant to mass popular culture.

Bumping I know but I just took a whole listen to the U-Men and Pearl Jam, and I think grunge, whatever that means, the spirit of grunge needs to come back, but the legacy of grunge needs to go. The spirit is making raw ass hard rock and roll mixing the best of 70s heavy rock that every old fart worships as Era of Rock Gods with hardline sludgy punk and throwing in some metal, mostly doom oriented. Just heavy ass rock like you want it, but the aesthetics were terrible. It all felt too proto emo and Nirvana pretty much more like the heaviest emo band ever. If they tried coming across more like the 70s rock stars or punks that they loved they probably wouldn't have been as loved during those years, but they wouldn't have gotten the stigma of being so emo (or leading to it).

That's what we need nowadays. A new rock and roll movement that doesn't try to copy anything but take influences and just play its ass off.

What? Grunge leading to emo? Where did you read that?
Grunge is an amalgamation of Hard Rock, metal subgenres and Punk, while Emo is just a Post-Hardcore genre. Can't really see where they converge.
Grunge can't be proto-emo because, well, they appeared at the same time.

^ +2. "Grunge" associated with "Emo"?!? Seriously that's the most obnoxious thing I've came across lately.
