I like a good bit of grunge. Pearl Jam is very good. As for punk, I've gotta give a big negatory, except for a little MxPx and Slick Shoes. Although, I like a good punk influence. One of the best new bands is At The Drive In. They are incredible.
Feels like I'm fiddling while Rome is burning down.
Think I'll lay my fiddle down, take a rifle from the ground!
