Hype!

I watched Hype! one of my favorite music documentaries about the overhyped music scene in Seattle in the 1990s. I washed up on the shores of Seattle in the mid/late 90s and it was a weird city in the post-Grunge era after it was raped and pillaged by corporate America. This documentary was filmed in 1996 by Doug Pray.

I probably watch it once a year. Makes me miss Seattle. Check it out on YouTube.

This clip features a gem at the 5:00 minute mark. It's Nirvana's first ever live performance of Smells Like Teen Spirit.
