Abstract

Article is an examination of the Seattle sound or grunge as a form of alternative rock music in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Media theories of why this city generated a new musical sound center on its isolation and weather. The A. favors the idea that the Seattle sound grew to prominence because of a lot of local musical talent (Nirvana, Pearl Jam etc.) and several successful independent record labels such as Sub Pop Records. The commodification and popularization of grunge essentially killed it by the mid-1990s. - (SLD)
