There is no doubt that the Pacific Northwest is considered the birthplace of 'grunge' music. Back in the early 1990s, as this new style of music really started to take hold, dozens of bands came out of the Seattle area. Many of them came and went without much fanfare, but there were a few that made a big impact, both on the radio and with fans.


Bands that instantly come to mind are Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains. Another band that should definitely be mentioned among this group is Candlebox, who is best known for their hits "Far Behind," "You," and "Cover Me." Fans in Southern Indiana will soon have the chance to see Candlebox, as they prepare to visit Evansville this summer.
