Fell on Black Days? Here's a Pickup

As someone who was a teenager in the early 90s when grunge make its impact, it puts a smile on my face knowing there are people who weren't around at that time who enjoy and appreciate that genre and era. The hosts musical knowlege goes beyond grunge as well. Great banter between the hosts with some occasional life philosphy thrown in as well. Keep up the great work!

Loving it.

I don’t know how I missed this pod the last few years, but I am loving it. It warms my heart to hear how much grunge is still loved. This podcast is an easy and fun listen at the gym, while driving or even when I’m doing my chicken coop cleans! 🖤

Grunge isn’t Dead

I’m 41 & was a total 90s Grunge kid. I’d “borrow” my dad’s work flannels & tie them around my baggy jeans and go off to school. I had a poster of Kurt Cobain on my wall. Anyway Grunge was more than music, it was an entire movement. I’ve always been a little overprotective of it, probably because so many of those songs saved my life. Anyway, I’m glad to see the next generation talking about it & keeping it alive. You guys may not have been alive then, but you get it.

I originally found you on Instagram & I felt like the bumble bee at the end of “No Rain” video. Thanks for keeping Grunge alive & well! 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼
