Look, Spencer...

I couldn't find info because I think we thought this was the 25th anniversary for SubPop!? I finally ran into this though, I just fucking HATE the way they worded it!

Screw them... did they forget that the grunge era had some really GOOD bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Screaming Trees, L7, Meat Puppets, Hole, Veruca Salt, Melvins, Stone Temple Pilots, Paw... HELLO! And even if you are dumbass enough to miss all of that, just don't mention Creed when talking about Pearl Jam, please. This is my favorite era of music, so I'm very upset.


This was the article on Yahoo Music:
------

The original sundry members of Green River (Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament, Mudhoney's Mark Arm and Steve Turner, Mother Love Bone/Love Battery's Bruce Fairweather, and Alex Shumway) have confirmed they will play together for the first time since 1993, as part of Sub Pop Records' 20th anniversary show next summer. This is historical stuff, readers, since Green River were arguably the first "grunge" band!

Yes, we suppose that means without Green River there'd be no Puddle Of Mudd, Creed, Days Of The New, Hinder, or Our Lady Peace...but try not to hold that against them, OK? It's not Green River's fault. How could they have known?

I fucking hate Creed. Scott Stapp looks like Colin Farell and is a little bitch. I read some article by him years ago about how his solo career was going to rock our collective world and as far as I know he didn't rock shit.

As far as I'm concerned, all of his album sales and popularity should have been given to Chris Cornell.

Re: That was me.
I hate that too...

And yes, I also hate Creed! It really shouldn't be lumped into the grunge era, that's an insult.

As for Days of the New, I haven't really heard their music but the singer, Travis Meeks, was at the Doors Storytellers VH-1 taping I got to go to, and he amazed us with his cover of The End. We had chills.

Re: That was me.
You might be thinking of Mad Season!!!

That band's stuff is pretty good if you like Jerry Cantrell. It sounds just like AIC, the mellow AIC anyway, but no harmonization, of course.

Get it from isohunt.com or whatever torrent site you use. :)

I always liked Creed. And after I found out that Jesus didn't even like Creed, I became a HUGE fan! I think maybe I'm the last Creed fan alive? Is there a hit squad out there looking for us?

For some reason, I never cared that Stapp was/is a useless turd. They rock(ed).
