Grunge was the "now" sound perhaps 20 years ago.

Yes, but Puccini was just stealing from John Williams.
No no no no no no!
WAGNER was stealing from John Williams!
Pretty much everyone stole from John Williams. Wagner, Puccini, Holst, Dvorak, Prokofiev, Sibelius, Mussorgsky, Stravinsky, Korngold, Perischetti, Strauss ... all of their stuff was retroactively ripped off from John Williams' completely original compositions.
Hm... no mention of Fux, Bach, DesPrez, or event Mozart, but then, those other guys ripped from these guys, so I suppose you could say it happened by proxy.
Not "garage bands" but bands that had real promise. Good sound. Good vocals. Etc.
One night the band was a local bluegrass act that was very good. One of the people there with me knew the lead (singer/banjo) so after the performance I got to actually meet the band. Not a big thrill, but nice.
So the lead/banjo guy asked me what I thought of one of their songs - "I wrote that about 2 years ago" was what he said.
What I said was "I liked it better on piano, the way I learned it in high school, the way MOZART wrote it about 300 years ago."
The banjo work in that thing of "his" was a note-for-note ripoff. Caught him. He was not pleased.
Sucks to be him. In many ways. And I told him that.
And here, about 12 years later, HE was convicted of felony spouse abuse and is currently awaiting trial for child molestation. A real dirtball scum. Didn't know about all that "other side of him" stuff back then.
Seems that music plagiarism was the **least** of his faults.
Hm... no mention of Fux, Bach, DesPrez, or event Mozart, but then,
Those guys are all pretty cool ... they sound a lot like the Sex Pistols.
I want to put together a band and play "Helter Skelter" so I can introduce it by saying, "This is a song that U2 stole from Charles Manson. We're stealing it back."

And here I thought "Helter Skelter" was from the White Album (Beatles).
