To me, the definition of grunge is someone who just cant afford to buy those preppy clothes that everyone wears, and they wanna stick out a little bit. It's also for people who dont really care what they look like. Like not taking showers, wearing what ever's on your floor, and going to school with bed head. haha. You may interpret it differently, but thats just how i see it in my head.
A good example of grunge is Kurt Cobain. He never really cared what he looked like or what other people thought he looked like. Plus he never really could afford the clothes that other people wore. He grew up around not having to much money.

Artistic style; "Grunge" is made by piling up many seperate images and textures. Scratches, splotches, bits of text, grids, and random buildings are all commonly used in this type of art. The end result has a raw, dark look. Tends to be associated with the stereotypical "depressed teenager".

Sure Nirvana were a Grunge band, but they were mainstream. Mainstream Grunge isn't real Grunge in my opinion. The Real Grunge bands were Mudhoney, Alice In Chains, Melvins, Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone, Screaming Trees, Green River, Malfunkshun etc.

Smashing Pumpkins, Jane's Addiction, and Sonic Youth, although great bands, were NOT Grunge.
If you want great Grunge rock listen to "Piece of Cake" by Mudhoney, "Houdini" by Melvins, and "Dirt" by Alice In Chains. And compare that to Nirvana's "Nevermind". Nevermind doesn't even come close.

The stuff that grows on shower curtains. A term used to exploit alternative bands or basically any band from seattle in the early 90s. Grunge ended more or less when Kurt Cobain died, as well as with everyone commercializing it (specifically what most bands rebel against).
Grunge attire consists of flannel shirts, ripped jeans, Doc Martens/Chuck Converses, as well as ripped babydoll dresses, smeared makeup, and combat boots for girls. True "grungies" dont brush hair.
"Grunge is cool"
"No it's not, that's why Im into grunge!"
"But there's a grunge fasion show in London next week."
"Really?"
"Yeah."
"Grunge is stupid."

Stupid term used primarily by journalist in the early 90s, because the thought they needed a new word for rock music.
Hey this shit sounds pretty good, but we can't call it "rock n' roll" alright why don't we just call it "grunge".

A style of music started in the mid 80's mostly near seattle that was about nothing but the music. Grunge songs consisted of mostly lyrics filled with angst and distorted guitar parts and wild drum beats. Mix in a bass and you have grunge. A mixture of punk, rock, and glam metal was used to create the all time greates sub-genre of rock...GRUNGE!
Pearl Jam was a grunge band that was all about Pro-Choice, while Nirvana was all about having a good time.
