The Emerald City, Pt. II: From Seattle

Yesterday I posted some songs all about Seattle, and many of those artists are also from the area as well (Nirvana, MxPx, Sir Mix-a-Lot). At the risk of being redundant, here's a few more songs from them, plus a ton from other local natives. Some you might know, some might be unfamiliar. Some are classic grunge, others are hip-hop, riot grrrrl, 70's rock, indie or folk, but they all run on the same theme: SEATTLE ROCKS!!

(What can I say? This city desperately needs the ego lift: by some counts it has one of the highest suicide rates in the world.)
