WARNING – Before you buy this resource PLEASE READ!
Grunge is an aggressive and angry genre, quite often with swearing throughout many popular songs. It is the teacher/lecturer’s responsibility to monitor and check before engaging with learners. I have tried to ensure that music examples are suitable for the classroom, but this really depends on the learning environment and age range of your learners. Thank you for understanding!
