  • Collin M. Williams from Swakopmund,erongo NamibiaWow, did pretty bad
  • Sara from Mexico CityEasy!
  • Ron Morris from Herefordshire UkWorrying how much I didn't know
  • Mike from AmericaI partially agree that grunge overshadowed heavy metal, in particular thrash, but I think the structure of the music business at that time killed metal, putting high pressure on the bands to write songs that would appeal to a wider audience, which really never happened, and in the process their original fan base "soured", and began following different styles, such as grunge.

    The absolute best thing that came out of grunge (which in itself is an unfair label) was Alice in Chains. Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell were incredibly gifted songwriters, that fed off of each other's ideas and the result was some phenomenal music that ended much too soon. To think what could have been if tragedy had not struck them as they were nearing the prime of their creativity.
  • Paul from Australia5/1- music started to end in the 90's. grunge killed heavy metal.
