 Grunge speak - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Grunge speak was a hoax created by Megan Jasper, a sales representative for Sub Pop Records.
Under pressure from a reporter for The New York Times who wanted to know if grunge fans had their own slang, Jasper, 25 at the time, told the reporter a set of made-up on-the-spot slang terms that she claimed were associated with the Seattle grunge scene in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
While some members of the grunge scene may have used other forms of slang (such as those that have become commonly used in the English language), many felt no need to create their own to go along with grunge.

Grunge evolved out of the Pacific Northwest's local punk rock scene, inspired by local punk bands such as The Fartz, The U-Men, the feedback- and distortion-intensive The Accused, and pop-punksters The Fastbacks.[3] Above all, the slow, heavy sound of The Melvins was the biggest influence on grunge.
Grunge's unique sound is often said to have resulted from Seattle's isolation from other alternative rock scenes.[6] However, outside of the Pacific Northwest, other musicians are said to have influenced grunge.

But both tribes persist among thirtysomethings as well as post-Columbine youth throughout the Western world, the grunge label is useful shorthand, and the conjunction of a Nirvana greatest-hits package with the new Pearl Jam recording, Riot Act—not to mention the publication of Kurt Cobain's journals—offers a fitting occasion to examine an enduring cultural legacy.
Apart from the oversized flannel shirts, wool hats, and perhaps overly self-consciously bedraggled accoutrements, the music sought to imaginatively identify and forcibly uproot the seeds of dysfunction that are perhaps especially evident in American homes and schools.

Standing avidly in two-thousand-five and reminiscing fondly on typography — you too reminisce on typography from time to time, no? — the deconstructive days of yore seem far behind, even possibly, as Steve Heller said, appear as a “blip in the continuum of graphic design history”.

 Speak by Lindsay Lohan CD
Balancing dance-floor grooves of the Britney Spears/Christina Aguilera variety with rock moves borrowed from the Avril Lavigne/Michelle Branch axis, Lohan sings with authority over razor-sharp club beats (the title track, "To Know Your Name") and amps-on-11 guitar riffs ("First") in equal measure.
Though Lohan had little to do with writing most of these songs, the lyrics are well suited to her unique situation of living in the public eye from a young age, and they often address the difficulties of maintaining close personal relationships.
A surprisingly diverse and accomplished debut, SPEAK proves that Lohan has the mettle and talent necessary to compete with other young pop superstars.
