CARRIE UNDERWOOD TALKS ABOUT HER LOVE OF GRUNGE

Credit: Spinner.com

“You know those stupid school pictures that you’d always forget about until you got there?” Underwood confesses to Spinner. “I wore those wide-legged jeans, like skater wide-legged jeans and a black and white oversized plaid shirt. And I remember when I got my picture back, one of my friends saying I looked like I was going to go rob somebody. Like I was a menace!”

Underwood’s not-so-secret grunge past goes a lot deeper than the collection of plaid shirts she still keeps in her closet. As it turns out, the Oklahoman was raised on rock ‘n’ roll.

“I grew up listening to ’80s glam hair metal. And then, when I got older in the ’90s, the whole grunge thing was huge and I was totally into it. I was all about Pearl Jam, all about Alice in Chains and Nirvana and all of that stuff.”

    I hate country music but I like Carrie Underwood – not for her talents necessarily but for the fact that she is one of the few level-headed, classy young women in the music industry.

  • Dreux

    I agree with Kris. Don’t care for her music, but there’s no reason to really dislike her.

  • Humperdinck

    FOUND!!!! Velvet Revolver’s new singer!

  • potatoechip99

    As a classmate of hers I can tell you she was also into Offspring and Bush and also Third Eye Blind until she saw them live lol. I was at the same concerts as she was for Hole/Imperial Teen and another show for Green Day/Get up Kids as well where she did her first “Crowd Surf” 🙂 Those were the days for sure! When our whole year was looking forward to one or two concerts that we had just enough money for and having to convince our parents that we “wouldn’t get into any trouble” so long as they let us go. I’m not a country music fan most of the time but I’ll always be a big fan of Carrie’s for being very talented and not giving up on her dreams.

  • Max

    Wow, surprisingly respectful comments for once. I was expecting her to be called a stupid poser or something. Nice guys.

  • Maverick785

    Nice to know she has such good roots, and SO much easier on the eyes than a Courtney Love headline. Mike Fisher’s a lucky guy!

  • billy

    a smoking hot girl that likes good music. what could u say bad about her?

  • GenXLady

    I like some of Carrie Underwood’s songs, but not country music in general much. I agree that she seems like a classy lady. Nice to see some positive stuff here.

  • the keeper

    She is a fantastic singer. I am not a country fan by any means but she has a lot of talent and is one of the only people from American Idol to have their own career instead of forever being known as a “former Idol”. The fact that she loves grunge is awesome too, its cool to see she has great taste in music! She is easy on the eyes too…

  • Carrie

    I’m impressed at the maturity of these comments. I was expecting a lot of badness.

  • Don Chucker

  • the keeper

    Hey don you got your dose of internet attention, now go away your opinions are not of value to the people here

  • Marcelo

    I don’t get all the hate in this foruns lately…

    this guy Dreux really sucks…

  • zdcz

    She has great taste and should do a few covers.

  • Pete

    A grunge fan *AND* a hockey fan?

    I’m in love.

  • Matt Young

    She should do a country cover of “Bleed the Freak.”

  • redhead

    the song she got famous for, Before He Cheats, was written about Tommy Lee from Motley Crue. shes a big metal/alternative fan

  • redhead

    im sure she could do a good version of Down in a Hole.

  • Dreux

    @Marcello

    Don’t you mean “this Don Chucker guy sucks”? As in the Don Chucker who is spouting the hate you speak of?

    And no, Don, I didn’t call you a troll. I am, however, now calling you illiterate.

  • Don Chucker

    @Keeper…IT’S NOT ABOUT ATTENTION..IT’S ABOUT TELLING THE FUCKING TRUTH MORON…
    @DREUX…ILLITERATE? MY ASS…I HAVE A LAW DEGREE AND A FUCKING GOOD MUSIC TASTE..SO…THERE YOU GO!

  • sarah lee

    I’m not the biggest country fan but I got to give Carrie some credit because she has a wonderful voice and a great taste! I don’t get this hate comments..I mean, what’s the problem if she likes this kind of music? She should be praised! Early/Mid 90’s was a wonderful musical time…and @Don Chucker, really do you even know her? I don’t think so…why calling her so many names? Carrie is a beautiful talented woman…I mean…I just don’t get all these silly comments about people we don’t even know, and by the way…Law Degree? I don’t mean to take this at a personal level but…you do sound illiterate…and just to finish and this is because I see to much of this things around the internet: if you hate something so bad why do you spend your time bashing it? Just leave it…this is such a great forum to be ruined with your mean comments.
    Peace everyone!

  • no

    As long as she doesn’t try to make a country music cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit, then I am okay with this.

  • Jenna

    Hey Don Chucker, its 2012 and a lot of the grunge guys have capped teeth, fake contacts and use hair color. I listen to all kinds of music. The grunge era had some of the best music ever and with alot of the younger generation listening to it proves it will stand the test of time. Are we only suppose to be loyal to a certain type of music?

  • Don Chucker

    @Jenna…I MEAN,…IT’S LIKE THE SAME FUC***ING THING IF BRITNEY COMES AND SAYS SHE LOVES METALLICA! WTF?!!!! IF Y’ALL LIKE TO SOUND POLITICALLY CORRECT …I DON’T! I HATE THIS BCH…SHE CAN’T EVEN SING…
