I don't understand your posting.
My guess is Husker Du will not be played here, because it's not "easy listening" enough (and not because YOU don't know them...?!?). I miss a lot of post punk bands here... especially from the early 90s ...but, oh well...
And I like the Foo Fighters. I simply love what Dave Grohl is doing (though I don't own any of his records...). I don't care if they are a mega-band.

Oh yes, these guys and STP are by far the most talented to come out of the movement.
movement? if I remember right from the interviews I heard and read in the early 90s, every single band (that got labeled "grunge!") hated the label "grunge". and the label was just set up by the music industry to give this a name under which to sell it. the only thing they had in common is, that most of them originated from seattle/washington state and most of them knew each other / were friends?
grunge was more a fashion (concerning clothes). i copied eddie vedder's and jeff ament's clothing style back then *ahem* ;o))
I liked most of those bands, but never compared them. How? They were all so distinctive.
(Ok, no, almost true: I always thought STP (San Diego, not(!) Seattle!) were id*ots & tried to copy PJ and jump on the "grunge" train. (Now I like some of their songs). And I didn't like Mudhoney, too indie).

It's more the historical value of this band than its quality...
"Temple of the Dog was started by Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, who had been a roommate of Andrew Wood, the lead singer of Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone. Wood died on March 19, 1990 of a heroin overdose, the day Cornell got back from a tour. As he went on to tour Europe a few days later, he started writing songs in tribute to his late friend. The result was two songs, "Reach Down" and "Say Hello 2 Heaven," which he recorded as soon as he got back from touring."
"Temple of the Dog was an American rock band that formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. It was conceived by vocalist Chris Cornell of Soundgarden as a tribute to his friend, the late Andrew Wood, lead singer of Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone. The line-up included Stone Gossard on rhythm guitar, Jeff Ament on bass guitar (both ex-members of Mother Love Bone), Mike McCready on lead guitar, Matt Cameron on drums and Eddie Vedder providing lead and backing vocals."
I'd love to hear -every now and then- "say hello to heaven" here & the "hits" mother love bone had. not only because of the "historical"/"tribute" value (I like some of mother love bone's songs a big deal...still). unfortunately the aforementioned songs didn't make it on rp's playlist.

And I'll always be grateful for having had the pleasure to seeing them live in '95. It was a marvellous gig, in a -literally- tiny shoebox, with a marvellous (sax) sound.

Lovely lyrics. . .
There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills...
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust...
This is a place where I don't feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home...
Cause, I built a home
Until it disappeared
And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust...
Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed it's knees
By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held onto me
I held on as tightly as you held onto me...
Cause, I built a home
Until it disappeared
And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust...
lovely lyrics, yes. makes me want to live in the countryside, in the middle of nowhere.
the song is fairy tale. a tale of one marriage & a love that lasts a lifetime. never relocating, no commuting, enough time and energy and space to do gardening. and no living in a box in suburbia. here, suburbia is "where they cut down all the trees and name the streets after them"... sucks.

That's the joy of only listening to RP (and NPR), it's all new and good to me. Can't stand other radio stations for exactly that reason - they kill great music and my ears with poor music. So very glad to have good music here even if it's popular elsewhere.
definetely: yes! love the song. but hate the mainstreamer's ubiquitous hype around this song. even on tv here, you won't escape from it.
(and I try to suppress the thought she might only be an artificial music industry project and not a multi-talented do-it-your-self-er like beck or vast and alikes)

agreed. i like some songs by A Perfect Circle, some by Tool and some by Porcupine Tree (let's not forget Pucifer!). They can sound similar but all have their moments of greatness
i like pt much better these days. they're less artificial and there's less posing involved. i like steven wilson's attitude a lot. he's like the typical nerd type of guy next door, doesn't put on much of a show. it's just him and his mic. or guitar. or whatever. it's so nicely low key :o) and though it's not really "happy" music, it's indeed feel good music, lifts (me) up. i feel like it does not depress like tool & apc. theirs is "commit-suicide-with-your-whole-family"-music :o) pussy fur is too vulgar and sexual topic obsessed (only?) artwork-wise for my taste ... it's icky ... but I'm a sissy anyway.
concerning tool - i think tool lost a lot since opiate and undertow. they just should have stopped after that ;oP it never got rawer and more crispy after that. garage sound aesthetics and an unagitated attitude are hard to preserve as soon as you get financially pampered, I guess. it just got more and more bombastically produced und stadion-rock-type-thingy imho. though it was really really innovative, it got really tiring over the years...and b o r i n g. i can't bear listening to the latter records anymore...they are just TOO MUCH to digest. :oI i'd love if they'd do "simple & straight & forward" songs again.
it's interesting to see how many avid fans and followers there still are for the glorified lead singer - i always thought that's a teen age thing.

Now it just needs to get played ;o)
I really thought, if a song would make it on here, first it would be their "This is the beginning"-track. You should really check it out. I -personally - like it even more than this track. Though...this one is a good road trip song...
The record is pretty "fresh": release date was September 2nd 2011.

i'll try and keep their music close to my heart and not give an eff about trend. they're just too good & there's other (real trash) music better to trample down.

It is funny, Soundgarden IMO was actually hurt
by radio success and overplay. They hold up really well when you haven't heard them in awhile, but when they were cramming this album down our throat every.......other........song, it totally ruined some really good songs, this being one of them!
totally agree. i stopped listening to them when this album came out. i couldn't stand this song & video in '94...

I mean, I absolutely LOVE Nirvana's Nevermind - still. It magically stays crisp & fresh up to this very day.
I also like this musicians take on Lithium. Must be loads of fun to do this kind of stuff...
taking a song and robbing it of all it's aggressiveness & "rock attitude" & of course saving/keeping the lyrics...then putting it in a "girl from ipanema"-environment.
It made me smile. Imagining this getting played in a stupid-business-men-lounge for example.
And I think it's one of the pretty well done covers.

Oh well, I think I need to give RP a break for minute and let the '91 hard copy spin for a while! Back in the days when Soundgarden was sooooo h o t and to the point.

You can really tell (...hear) , that he's creating his music alone (is he still?).
It sounds so arranged, overthought, so without spontaneousness, almost anemic...
Doubt it will grow on me...but will see.
For me it's a 4 = acceptable
