The Seattle scene and the destruction of 80’s metal.

I know I know, could I space out my enteries any more than I do? Well all I have to say is…Yes I could. Oh well. Atleast I am doing one even if it takes me 6-10 months to do it. Ok enough of that. On to the bitch session.
If I hear another schmuck whine about how bands such as Nirvana, Soundgarden etc. killed metal I’ll fuckin puke. Cmon let us look at where metal was. Oh goodie we had wonderful bands such as Pretty Boy Floyd and Enuffs Enuff. The Seattle scene didn’t kill metal. Metal was committing suicide. Sure there are the lack of long intricate guitar solos but what the hell is a guitar solo when there isn’t any other substance to the music. Metal had become more a commercial for maybelline makeup than about music. All I can say is THANK YOU Mudhoney, Mother Love Bone, The Gits, Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Green River, Screaming Trees etc. etc. etc. for saving music from the evil Summers Eve douche crew that was metal in the late 80’s. Thank you for stripping away all the shit and getting back to the primitive. Just straight ass kicking hard rockin music. Don’t get me wrong. Not all bands by the late 80’s had become like this but a lot had. The ones that didn’t started to get less and less play. Someone had to do something before every rock concert became sponsored by Aqua Net and Cover Girl. Blame the Seattle bands? I don’t think so. They should be greatly thanked.
