Todd Snider: "Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues" from Songs For The Daily Planet

Todd Snider: Songs For The Daily Planet

Amidst the rise of "grunge rock", Snider released this song as a parody of the rise and subsequent fall of so many of the Seattle bands. The lines "I feel stupid/and contagious" are an indirect reference to Nirvana, who, according to the song, knocked the song's fictitious band out of the spotlight on into the downward spiral. Also known as "Seattle Grunge Rock Blues," "The Band that Wouldn't Play," or "Talkin' Seattle Grunge Blues."

How to find it: Begins at 4:55 of track #12 ("Joe's Blues")
