Mark Yarm - Everybody Loves Our Town (A History of Grunge)



Further Information

PAPERBACK EDITION, Published by Faber & Faber, September 2017

Grunge, also known as the 'Seattle Sound', emerged from the Pacific northwest in the early part of the 1980s. With the unexpected success of Nirvana's single 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' in 1991, grunge became a household word overnight and launched an American music movement on a par with punk and hip-hop. In Everybody Loves Our Town, Mark Yarm draws from exclusive interviews to tell the whole story: the founding of originators like Soundgarden and the Melvins, the early successes of the SubPop record label, the rise of powerhouses Nirvana and Pearl Jam, the media hype, the suicide of Kurt Cobain, and finally, the genre's mid-to-late-nineties decline.

Contains 250 first-hand interviews, including Courtney Love and members of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice-in-Chains, Mudhoney, The Screaming Trees and more.
