Grunge is a subgenre of alternative rock, and a subculture that emerged during the mid-1980s. Nirvana is one of the groups that made Grunge popular, with their hit song “Smells like Teen Spirit” the poster child for the genre.

During the mid-1980s, Seattle and nearby towns were the center of music. The early grunge movement revolved around Seattle’s independent record label Sub Pop and the underground music scene in that region.

This VH1 special documentary focuses on the music in Seattle during the Grunge period. The main focus is on Nirvana, and the effect the group had on the world’s music scene. The documentary features interviews with Kurt, Dave, Mark Arm, Steve Turner, and many others.

The song “Smells like Teen Spirit” gets a special part, as musicians discuss the effects the song caused.
