Baseball and Grunge?

Baseball and Grunge?

I don't usually like mlb.com but I had to post this story. I just find this totally awesome.

For those who don't know, the Melvins were one of the first underground bands to start playing "grunge" music. They came from Aberdeen, Washington, the same town as Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic of Nirvana. Cobain actually tried out for the band as a guitarist but failed terribly. They ended up being a huge influence on bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and all those other northwestern bands that got big in the early '90's.

I`m not the only person on the planet both obsessed with underground music and baseball!
