    Might be some grunge influences here and there, but it certainly isn't the main genre of Blind Melon.

    Why everything that came from 88 to 96 is considered Grunge? For God's Sake!

    A very underrated band. It's a shame they were shoehorned into the "grunge" movement, because very little of their music fits into that category. It's a shame that people only know them for No Rain. I consider them the Yes of the early-90s alt-rock scene, very progressive sound which is a stark contrast to their so-called contemporaries.

    Blind Melon is so fucking good, it's a shame Shannon passed away after the band recorded only two studio albums. I'm glad Nico is a thing at least. RIP Shannon
