Marilyn Manson: “I coined the term ‘grunge'”

Marilyn Manson has claimed that he is responsible for inventing the term “grunge”.

The rocker says that he coined phrase when he was working as a music journalist and reviewing Nirvana’s debut album ‘Bleach’.

He said: “I hated rock’n’roll when I started. It was on the cusp of grunge and a lot of bands that I used to call ‘commonist rock’ because everyone wanted to be like the common man with the flannel shirts and Pearl Jam and their fight against Ticketmaster and all this horse s–t. Nirvana was different. That was one of the bands I covered first as a journalist and I’m just going to go ahead and say I coined the term ‘grunge’ in a review of ‘Bleach’. You’re welcome.”
