It was tough being a music fan when “alternative” broke. Suddenly everyone thought The Smiths were their band and Soundgarden were considered as good as Black Sabbath. Worse, if you brought your hot new Nirvana Nevermind cassettes to house parties you’d get them stolen. Twice. Fuck you anonymous Nevermind cassette stealers.
Anyway, it was with that wealth of knowledge and experience that I wrote the story Where Are They Now? 20 Years After Alternative Broke for Spinner. In said story you can find helpful updates on the likes of L7, NIN, Blur, Pearl Jam and all those other faves of Gen Xers.
