Contest: Win A Copy of "Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History Of Grunge" By Mark Yarm

From great vinyl to freaky-looking action figures of rock icons, Fucking Nostalgic has the goods when it comes to cool giveaways. And in light of all of the recent attention being paid to the early '90s grunge scene due (largely) part to a certain album's upcoming 20th anniversary, there's understandably a lot of interesting writing and analysis of that particular era floating around right now.

Enter Mark Yarm, former senior editor at Blender and author whose name is freakishly similar to that of Mudhoney frontman Mark Arm, who just this week released his long-awaited modern rock history tome, Everbody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge. The book contains exclusive interviews with more than 250 musicians, record executives, and scenesters who all provide their thoughts on the seemingly sudden rise of Seattle as the '90s alt-rock capital of the world in often hilarious, often sad, and always intimate detail. Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Soundgarden, and Alice In Chains are among the bands prominently featured throughout, and at over 500 pages, Everybody Loves Our Town is sure to make for an engrossing read.

...Which is why we're giving a copy away to one lucky Fucking Nostalgic fan on our Facebook page! As always, go to the corresponding Facebook post to enter - this time around, you'll need to leave the name of your favorite song from a grunge band based out of Seattle during the late '80s or early '90s for a chance to win. For example: "Would?" by Alice in Chains (below). We'll pick a name at random at midnight ET on September 12 and contact the winner for shipping info.

Good luck!
