The movie to best have captured the spirit of the Seattle grunge music sound was unquestionably Cameron Crowe’s ‘Singles’.  Starring Matt Dillon as the lead singer of the fictional Citizen Dick, the movie featured artists like Chris Cornell, Layne Staley, Stone Gossard and Eddie Vedder.  Pretty much everyone except Curt Cobain.  Today is the 25th anniversary of the film’s premier and Rolling Stone has an interview with Crowe.  While the film itself wasn’t going to win an Academy Award, in retrospect, the soundtrack certainly could have.

Check out Crowe’s interview over at Rolling Stone.

He is also re-releasing the soundtrack with bonus tracks and additional content.  I am sure that you can grab that on iTunes, but for those who don’t remember some of the incredible tunes on it …. State of Love and Trust.
