Rs_logo_small Grunge is a subgenre of alternative rock that emerged during the mid-1980s in the American state of Washington, particularly in the Seattle area. Joe (sorry, "Dr. Joe") shares his experience in Seattle Washington, the birthplace of grunge rock. Once Seattle's sound gushed through the country, and then the world, everyone became soaked head-first in the sounds and stylings of rock never before seen in the world of music. Tune in this week to learn all about the punks that started it all.
