Default Grunge

So what exactly is grunge? The first band that comes to mind for me is Three Days Grace, the kind of music that you listen to when your really depressed and hate the whole world, and would rather feel sorry for yourself than get over it.

It's obviously related to rock, but is it it's own sub genre?

i don't believe grunge is a term used anymore by bands. Grunge was mainly bands during the 90's that were basically very angry hippies. They were rebeling against the 80's hair bands and such.

three days grace is really just "hard" rock.rock,maybe nu-metal?(probably not)

grunge was nirvana, smashing pumpkins, pearl jam, collective soul, bush

When you hear grunge, think Nirvana.

So the old stuff done by Godsmack would fit into that perfectly.

I like Soundgarden quite a bit. I haven't heard too many songs though.

Mudhoney is a good one to check out. They were around the same time as nirvana and the rest, but weren't as succesful.
