Punk rock

Seattle's punk rock scene was always limited, but is important for its influence on the development of grunge music. In the 1970s, Ze Whiz Kidz made a unique and bizarre variety of confrontational music and helped launch a hardcore punk scene that included The Mentors, RPA, The Rejectors, The Lewd, The Enemy and, most influentially, Solger and The Fartz, and New Wave bands like The Heats, The Cowboys, The Meyce, The Telepaths, Visible Targets, Chinas Comidas and X-15. Hardcore skinhead bands like Extreme Hate, The Boot Boys and Firing Squad also gained a following. Green River, a hardcore band that splintered into Mudhoney and Mother Love Bone, were one of the first grunge bands. Also drawing on the hardcore scene were The Melvins, Soundgarden, Nirvana, and Fitz of Depression of Olympia. Musician Duff McKagan also made his entry into the global rock scene starting in the punk rock scene in his hometown Seattle.

Record producer Jerry Dennon of Jerdon Records was responsible for bringing The Kingsmen (of Portland, Oregon), best known for their national hit "Louie, Louie," to the ears of northwest audiences. The Kingsmen soon found themselves embroiled in a rivalry with local favorite Paul Revere & the Raiders, who also released a version of "Louie, Louie". Local music fans were split between the two groups, and the city's music scene polarized as a result. The Kingsmen's version caught on nationally after a Boston radio station picked up the song and Dennon negotiated distributing rights with Wand Records out of New York City. The song's supposedly suggestive lyrics led to it being banned in some localities, including Indiana.

Heavy metal

Most notably in the 1980s, when bands such as Metal Church, Queensrÿche and Heir Apparent were in the top. Metal Church had initially got the name while Kurdt Vanderhoof started in the San Fransisco scene, but moved back home to Aberdeen and changed the members of the band, and was one of the most well known metal bands from the 1980s especially because of their albums "Metal Church" (1984), "The Dark" (1986), "Blessed In Disguise" (1989) and "The Human Factor" (1991), they resurfaced in 2004 with "Weight of the World" and then with a 20 year spin on "the Dark" with the 2006 'A Light in the Dark". Queensrÿche is better known for been between the heavy metal and glam metal scene, with strong influence of progressive rock, that can be seen in their "Operation Mindcrime" album of 1987 and "Empire" of 1991.

But most know metal band from the final 80's from Seattle is Sanctuary, that after some years became what we know as Nevermore. Grunge bands like Alice in Chains, Mother Love Bone, The Melvins and Soundgarden were close to heavy metal, and scene was not so different. Seattle's current metal scene is thriving with acts such as Himsa, Three Inches of Blood although they are from Vancouver, and Witchburn. And more recently certain underground thrash metal bands such as Burn The Witch and Edge of Oblivion (The two of whom have a long standing feud spawning from the dismissal of Burn The Witch front man, Wyatt Olney (former drummer of Edge of Oblivion.)

Grunge

Grunge music began as a mixture of heavy metal and punk rock, and arose from the hesher scene in Seattle during the 1980s. The earliest bands included Green River and Soundgarden, among others, most signed to legendary indie rock label Sub Pop. By the late 1980s, several future stars had begun performing, including Nirvana, Alice in Chains, and Mudhoney, while the death of Andrew Wood of Mother Love Bone led to that band's disintegration and subsequent reformation as Pearl Jam. In 1991 (see 1991 in music), Nirvana's Nevermind, along with Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger, Pearl Jam's Ten and Alice in Chains' Dirt brought grunge to the top of the national charts, where it stayed for some years, until Kurt Cobain's death and the departure of several major bands. However since Cobain's tragic suicide, there arose post grunge in Nirvana's ashes with Dave Grohl from Nirvana on a new band and label with the more radio friendly band Foo Fighters.
