Grunge


I've had an education today. I've heard of grunge in scrapbooking- but I'm not intentionally a grunge style scrapper!! I also thought I knew what a grunge style dresser was like! Googling Grunge brought up images of Johnny Depp in Grunge style clothing- so I borrowed that image!

grunge
GRUNGE MUSIC
-Has a dirty guitar sound, strong riffs, and heavy drumming
-Guitars usually tuned to a lower key
-Commonly used guitar distortion and feedback
-Draws heavily on Punk
-Lyrics are typically angst-filled, angry, frustrated, sad, fearsome, and depressed
-Some people dont like Nirvana because they were the most popular band and overshadowed bands like Alice In Chains and Soundgarden

ETHICS
-Take as little effort as possible on appearence and dress for comport and affordability
-Reject the idea that one must always purchase the things that one wants or needs from others
-Like obscure indie bands, but disown those bands when they sign to major lables
-Never follow trends

Now I thought I could take a photo of the guitar strings- but I've just used the wrong TYPE of guitar. Amy's electric guitar is  still stored under EMMA's bed! Anyway- by the time I'd got an image that grunged up a bit- I didn't fancy digging the correct type of guitar out- so forgive my ignorance!!!!!
I also found a 'grunge' wallpaper for the computer screen- which I quite like!!
Now I usually dress for comfort so maybe I could have qualified for grunge aswell- although I didn't think my clothes were particularly what I perceived to be grunge!!!!!

  1. Love the guitar photo.
    I doubt you can dress badly grunge as my DH does and you know what ? Good for you ! I dress comfortably too but that's not grunge either.
