College Soundtrack #7

Any revolutionary musical movement will have it's purely derivative acts, and the Seattle sound (aka Grunge) had Stone Temple Pilots. This is tough for me to listen to now, but at the time, was a definite favorite. The album itself is ... well, lets just say it's possible to have long arguments about which contemporary bands were the influence of each track.

To be fair, I saw one of the Alice In Chains members state that their band was a record company assembly, not an organically assembled group of musicians. I think his words were "grunge boy-band."

Enter Sandman - Metallica

Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
Even Flow - Pearl Jam
Waiting For Somebody - Paul Westerberg
Rooster - Alice In Chains
Hunger Strike - Temple Of The Dog
Plush - Stone Temple Pilots
