Well, when you really think about it, ALL popular music is a regurgitation of the past. The artistry lies in the difference between copying it wholesale or taking elements and crafting it into something new. Hmmm, a little like fashion, no? And I'm in Seattle and sadly, grunge never left here. The thing that people don't really understand is that it's not a fashion statement, it's just how a segment of population here dresses. Grown men wear plaid shirts with shorts, long johns and boots and they are not trying to be cool, they are just going to work. The bands that dressed this way just grew up dressing this way. Not that that excuses it!
