Humorous Grunge

Ok, so for some reason I love it when people make fun of the stereotypes of grunge. I found out about this show called Almost Live! that was a local Seattle sketch show from 1984-1999, (people of note that came from there are Bill Nye the Science guy, his show started as a sketch on there and he acted in several other roles there, Joel Mchale from Community and the Soup, and I guess that Ross Shafer guy went on to do other things as well) and it really showed how laidback and make fun of yourself Seattle was, which I love, and there is one guy on youtube named george buford that has over 1,000 clips of this show on his channel, and they are really funny, and I love how the Seattle rockers pop in every once in a while, like they aren't to big to appear in a local show even though they were the biggest musicians at the time, but George decided to disable embedding on his videos, so I'll post a few from other people, plus other funny laidback let your hair down vibe funny grunge clips.
