Ashta’s favourite grunge and alternative from the 1990s

Oh, here we have a special kind of week here on the Sweet and Sour Variety Hour. It was an arduous task to choose only one hour worth of songs from an era that defined the greasy angst of so many. But it is done. Indeed, it’s been a while since I’ve felt so smug about my playlist-making, but seriously, this one has so little cheese, you might think it was vegan. Was there veganism in the 90’s?

Grab your Discman, because here it is.
