Hot dog clubber ,

sense of community

as someone in their early 20s without many friends who listen to grunge/rock music, grunge bible fills the gap with lovely conversation that makes me feel less alone. love it!

Into the flood again…

Love this show. I lived through the grunge era and I am happy that a younger generation is finding joy in discovering this music! Keep up the great work and may you find your way to MOPOP someday to worship at the guitars of the grunge gods.

Big up big up ,

Wikipedia reading

Some good info, unfortunately neither of the hosts were actually cognizant during the grunge era, so all they can do is read off Wikipedia and give millennial opinions after the fact
After hearing the hatred for Gn’R, I had to tap out.
