In the mid-1980s, a local scene in and around Seattle, Washington began to emerge and spawned a variety of bands similar to the New Wave of British Heavy Metal ten years before. Heavily influenced by punk, metal and classic rock alike, these bands generated a multitude of sounds that were unique and unheard-of.

Groups like Soundgarden, Nirvana, Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam became the most well-known and commercially most successful representatives of the „Seattle scene“ which exploded into the mainstream by 1991 with Nirvana’s seminal release „Nevermind“.

In this multi-part special we’ll take a deep dive into the genesis of the Seattle music scene and its progenitors up to the change brought upon this community by the media hype and mainstream exposure.

There’s a ton of great music along the way, too.
