I waded through my awkward formative years with "Grunge" as my life's soundtrack. It was there in good times and bad, often accompanied by a six pack of shitty beer my older brother was kind enough to score for me.
Anyway, I appreciated the music then and still do today, which is why the recent announcement of this summer's Soundgarden / Nine Inch Nails tour has me as giddy as a school girl. Two of the bands that melted my face back in the day are still kicking ass and will be doing so together! Dig.
Now, based on the venue, the beer will probably still be shitty, but I'll be paying A LOT more for it. How grown up is that? Nonetheless, the show is destined to be badass.
Now, take a moment to view two of my favorite vids from these bands:
