Admin Post A live version of “Jane Says” popped up on my random iPod music in my truck yesterday. My wife had never heard that version, so we talked about me seeing Jane’s Addiction live, and how it was a different time for music. That made me remember, during the two or three years prior to Nirvana and Pearl Jam coming out, there was a section in most music stores for “College Music.” That’s where you’d find Jane’s Addiction, The Violent Femmes, Souixie and the Banshees, and even REM, Lennie Kravitz, and yep, even Soundgarden.There was no “Alternative Music” genre yet - just College Music. Then along came Nivana, Pearl Jam, AIC, and Soundgarden made it big after that... and Alternative Music was born and Grunge came out of that. Now it’s just all rock and roll. My wife was only born in 1980, so all she remembers from this time is going to a Paula Abdul concert.
