88.7 working through the CC library this morning. Might be coincidence but I would have thought they'd have a preset program this time of day

Ah, I don't know if I'd call them "straight metal." They were definitely closer to metal than grunge. But it wasn't just the fact that they were from Seattle in the '90's that made people call them "grunge." It was the fact that they many of their biggest hits in the mid-90's were kind of grunge-y like Black Hole Sun, Fell on Black Days, Blow Up the Outside World, Pretty Noose, etc. A lot of their earlier stuff was not as grunge-y.

:lol:

If you guys think you're going to get rob mccolley to positively acknowledge a disagreement you have with an opinion he holds about music, no matter how far fetched, I've got some oceanfront property in Indiana to sell.

When it comes to, "this commonly held opinion is actually wrong and my opinion is infallible on the matter," no one here's gonna compete with rob.

'The day I tried to live' is definitely one of my favorite songs and I could care less what genre of music people want to put them in, the fact that they aren't 100% in any genre is what makes them interesting to me

Yeah I never understood the whole "well they're mainstream, pop, grunge, rock, etc." about a band not being good. Cornell had one of the greatest voices in music and also was a great songwriter. Who cares about the label they're given or any of that BS. You could say they were so mainstream and popular BECAUSE they had so many followers and fans.

I think it's pretty obvious their more normcore acid jazz lo-fi prog rock than straight metal, but if you want to be a low class pleab about it go right ahead and flaunt your non-audiophile misinformed ear.

In all seriousness, I thought it was Hanson the first time I heard it. Then someone told me it was Soundgarden and I was all "Whaaaaa? But they're a straight metal band!"

I never expected an acknowledgment. In normal internet arguments, I expect approximately a 2.4% chance that the other person is actually going to acknowledge they are wrong, and I tick that down to about 0.8% when Rob is involved.

Not even acknowledging that he is wrong - acknowledging that the argument in question isn't one where its possible to be "right".
