We need a new 90's/grunge/alternative/riot grrrl/Seattle/generation X Renaissance

So here I am, just a kid born in '92, trying to learn how to play guitar and trying to find a job so I can save up money and move to Seattle and have a better chance at forming a grunge band. I've been hating my generation since it started sucking back in '98 when all those horrible pop people started coming out like Britney Spears, N'sync, the Backstreet Boys, Christina Agulara, Aaron Carter, and so on, and I was the only little girl in school that hated that stuff because I realized that they were so obviously fake, phony, shallow, empty, stale, glossy, and gross, and I never knew why no one else seemed to understand this but me, so I've been feeling so different from every other human being on the face of the earth since I was 6. Somebody's gotta do something, something's gotta give. I hate fame, oh so much, like no, I've never wanted to be a big star, quit trying to tell me that's what everyone wants, but maybe I should try and start another grunge/alternative/90's revolution, because no one else is, and I'm sick and tired of hearing the names of the new bad pop stars, and they are just ripoffs of the first ones, and oh, the only thing worse than pop is emo, and I remember back in the 90's when hiphop/rap were actually good and not all glossy, but anyway, I realize the only reason I found out about grunge, when I was 12 back in late 2004, was because it got famous, so I owe that fact, even though I didn't know it was famous because no one was talking about it then, and you have no idea how precious it is to have good music in the mainstream as well as the underground. So I'll just keep practicing guitar and we'll see what happens.

    As a fan of 90's alternative and grunge and the non conformist attitude I admire this blog though you can't be to harsh with todays lameness and glossiness we both know it's awful but it's easier to just let people think its good and go about your business

  2. Yes, that would be so easy if they weren't bombarding us with it and shoving it down our throats. If i have to hear one more newscaster or late night talk show host mention that one kid, I'm going to vomit. Even in the late 90s/early 2000s, I heard so many Britney Spears songs without ever once wanting to hear them or searching them out. I do think it's funny they like this stuff, so I figure hey if they want to like bad music etc., but they still push it everywhere, like commercials, people talking about it all around, in stores, they give those disney pop kids movies and of course I don't watch them but the commercials for the movies plat all the time. And all you hear is people saying they want to be a big star, and have all the fame and money, and I do try to drown it out with good music and ethics, but still, it's everywhere. It's enough to make you sick.
