    Flannel shirts predate rock. The Beach Boys wore flannel. It was big in the 70's, flannels over Zeppelin T shirts were the uniform of the day. Flannel in rock existed long before the Grunge era and apparently has outlasted rock music. Flannel rocks.

    I think the advent of MTV taught a lot of people how to listen with their eyes.

    I think John Fogerty has been wearing the same flannel shirt for the past 50 years!! I guess its a brand for him...

    I think your stage clothes should be a reflection of your music. But, I also get that for an outdoor gig on a very hot day, you gotta dress cool.

    I'd never thought of flip flops, cargo shorts t-shirts and fedoras as a 90s grunge look. The grunge thing, to start with at least, was just wearing normal street clothes (jeans, ripped or otherwise, t-shirts or flannel, runners) to play gigs (as opposed to something like glam metal) so it was a lack of pretentiousness. Of course, then grunge became big and it became 'a look' and then it was pretentious again.
