G: Grunge *90's Pop Culture Favorites* #AtoZchallenge

I may have come of age in the preppy 80's, but I was more than willing to jump off the overly-processed fashion train to embrace the grunge trend with worn jeans & cozy flannel---ironing optional. Thank you angsty Pacific Northwest bands who were too into your music to care about what you wore. Thank you.

Ah yes, grunge. I was definitely into the music more than the fashion. The worn & torn jeans were cool, and I had at least one pair of Chucks but I never wore boots or flannel (I always wore cardigans instead. still do.) so maybe I wasn't "grunge" as much as I just copied Kurt Cobain :D

Never into flannel, but I did dig the grunge music.

I still like the grunge look. haha

The grunge look amused me. I'm from the Pacific NW and we always dressed like that.

If flannel shirts, worn jeans, hiking boots are Grunge -- that's me -- if Stetsons are allowed that is. :-)

Didn't like the music or the style. Glad my children didn't embrace it either.

Look at all that fabulous grunge chic! I owned my fair share of flannel, too :)

Grunge didn't start until after we left the Seattle area. I had a friend who stayed there, and her daughter met all the members of the up and coming new bands, such as Nirvana. Ah, I always miss out.

Love,
Janie

I loved that baggy shirt and jeans stage. Why can't we go back to that? ;)

I still wear flannel -- it does a great job of keeping me warm when I'm out in snowy country and it's near zero degrees. And I still listen to a healthy dose of grunge.

Is grunge like punk rock? But just a difference in era, maybe?

You know the father of grunge was Neil Young, though, right? Until he made that song. . .

I'm a fan of jeans and tees :)

It was the coolest thing to wear guy's flannel shirts. I wore my dad's clothes for awhile. That is pretty weird to me now. Later I wised up and went the girl-grunge route a-la Courtney Love with the babydoll dresses or little slip dresses. The 90s weren't all bad but grunge was almost like giving up. I'm glad we all saw the light!
