grunge metal グランジ・ロタル
文化・スポーツ / 社会・生活

A new music trend that has emerged on Beyond Coast in 2040, said to have been created by musicians trying to add a sense of the carefree decadence found on Earth into progressive metal, which was itself a revival of some of the styles found in the 20th century. Popular mainly among the younger generation of Beyonds. More than just music, the rugged look of the artists' clothing has obtained popularity as a "Home fashion". Beyonds find the loose nature of grunge metal's clothing a fresh change compared to the strict dress code they were made to follow growing up.

Before the emergence of grunge metal, most popular music consisted of high-frequency instrumental songs, but now vocal songs and big band-style music have made a comeback after a 10-year absence. Many lyrics of grunge metal songs talk about Earth's nature, people, and love, contrary to the political themes featured in other recent music. It is often played at repatriatist gatherings. Some of the more famous bands include Small Marcy and The Vocal Cowboys.

This is Dave Forrest's favorite genre of music.
