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.
