Agreed, grunge is not like punk with the gimmics, the message. Yeah, some people will make a connection to generation X in the early 90's and nihilism. That's a crock of ****. It's just a musical genre, different bands took it to different places.

Maybe. When I think of 80's punk, I think more about bands like Suicidal Tendencies.
