Grunge Forum and Creative, passionate, organic, artsy, original, independant alternative songs

Ok, so I'll start this off by saying I found a grunge forum that has a lot of useful info about bands and stuff. http://www.grungeforum.com/ I actually found it a long time ago, but I have a tendency to find a bunch of stuff and just bookmark it and come back to it later, but now I'm on the forum. Finally I found info on Lazy Susan and Kill Sybil.

So I keep finding stuff that makes me think, man how creative, it really was better back then. I found the video for Tahitian Moon by Porno for Pyros http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57kHFXElTVI and someone there who was around then told me how it really was artsy, original, and independent, so I'd like to share a few more songs that make me think of that.

Teenage Fanclub - Star Sign


The Flaming Lips - She Don't Use Jelly

Sky Cries Mary - Every Iceberg is Afire. Sky Cries Mary are a psychedelic influenced Seattle band. The first band of Scott Mercado, the drummer for Candlebox.

  Love Battery - Out of Focus. The original video is on BVMGrungeTV, but they won't let me embed it, so I found this one that just took it from there. This one is so passionate and real feeling. Psychedelic grunge band from Seattle. I love the part where they close up on the singer's face.

Pavement - Cut Your Hair

Sugar - Helpless

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Give it Away

  Butthole Surfers - Pepper

 Meat Puppets - Backwater



Clearly things were more down to earth and cool and creative back then.

  2. Hello! Looks like you have an interesting site here. Actually, I was trying to join the Grunge Forum, but it doesn't seem to be taking new members? Is it possible to register, do you know?
    Thanks,
    Erik

    1. Oh yeah we've had a bit of spam recently, so the admins took the register button off until it calms down, though I don't know when it will be back up.
