If it weren't for Dr. Dre, would modern day hip hop have been another fleeting moment like grunge?

Raps roots took hold in NYC in the late 70's early 80's. The Furious Five, Beastie Boys, Kool Moe Dee, LL Cool J, Run DMC, Public Enemy, Fab Five Freddy, Biz Marque,Eric B & Rakim, Big Daddy Kane etc.. all where the background music for breakdancers, hustlers, graffiti artists etc... a cultural phenomenom. It wasnt excepted by suberbia yet. They all set the early trends for inner city youth and all of them paved the way for NWA, who took it to another level. Who brought the ghetto to white America.

If anything The Chronic is the apex, or the beginning of the end for rap.

Grunge wasnt a fleeting moment it was just a continuation of punk.

Thrash metal came first and to me was more significant than grunge.

maybe, doesn't really change what I said. thrash, grunge is just a continuation of punk.

I don't know much about thrash. I bought Rust in Peace. The biggest record from a thrash band was Metallica's Black album? Nevermind and that seem on equal footing. But the roots of both lie in punk? Even AFD seems born out of punk.

Rock, punk and hip hop.
