The world of grunge. This documentary examines the Seattle scene as it became the focus of a merging of punk rock, heavy metal, and innovation. Building from the grass roots, self-promoted and self-recorded until break-out success of bands like Nirvana brought the record industry to the Pacific Northwest, a phenomenon was born. More than just an examination of the music, this is a look at how this artistic movement became a societal and fashion trend with a major effect on American culture. Written by

The Northwest is where flying saucers - where the term "flying saucers" was coined. The Northwest is where Louie Louie's from. The Northwest is where - is the serial killer capital of the world. We have more unsolved serial killings here than any other place in the United States. I mean, the Manson Family used to vacation up this way. This place is weird - a lot of occult stuff. All this stuff is a factor in what happened in the music.

Great film documenting the hype and history surrounding the "seattle sound"
This film documents what was is referred to as the "Grunge", or "Seattle scene". It goes into depth exploring the tools the media, and corporations used to exploit and market this scene.
It goes back to the roots of grunge siting such bands as Skin Yard, Green River, and Mudhoney. One great thing about this film is the soundtrack. It's the best soundtrack since "Singles". It features The Gits, Mudhoney, Green River, The Fastbacks, etc.
Watch this film. Watch live performances, interviews with SoundGarden, Pearl Jam, etc.
