I see all these people criticize about using the term "grunge" yet no one can come to a universal agreement on what TO use instead. Grunge is more specific of a sound than "alternative". Therefore, I'll just keep using and saying grunge. @horsiest - marketing concepts like this are helpful for music fans who want to find more music that sounds similar. It's useful.
One thing: " It'd be better than Goat if it didn't drag so bad in the middle." When does it drag?? Monkey Trick is one of the best tracks on the album (And the band in general if you ask me), Karpis also. I can sort of see why would someone think that of Seasick, but still.
