What is Grunge?
Grunge is a darker, edgier aesthetic style that is usually depicted these days with glitches, vinyl records, cigarettes, neon lights, and the color black. Grunge, historically though, has its roots in the 1990s hard rock scene of Seattle, Washington. It was a countercultural, anti-consumerism youth movement and musical genre that defined Generation X.
