    Greatest Grunge Vocalist Ever - Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder, Layne Staley, Chris Cornell, ... ?

    Foofighters definitely not but Perl Jam were one of the earliest grunge bands so belong in that genre for sure. I don't think I bought a Perl Jam album after Ten so don't know what their later output was like.

    Sibilance and 'Blame'.

    So, HD800 sounds like DT990pro? DT990pro only cost $225.00 CAD. HD800 cost $1500.00 CAD.

    Koss war Hifi

    Koss Pro4AA or AAA. I had a pair of TD65 and they sounded good for what they cost but were very uncomfortable for extended use. I ended up giving them away. I used to really like Pro4AAA though but that was like in '78 and don't know how good they are now.

    Cheap solutions for headphone stands?

    I bought a $2.99 robe hanger that you are meant to screw into the bathroom door. I screwed it into the side of my desk and hang my ATH-M50 on it instead. I already have a Sennheiser desk headphone hanger for my other pair of headphones.

    Female-fronted goth bands - suggestions?

    The Creatures, which is Siouxsie Sue's other band. BTW, Goth is not a certain sound it is any music that is dark and deep. Goth's listen to everything from Dead Can Dance to The Cure to Mozart's Requiem. It's the theme that makes Goth music and not a specific style.

    Greatest Grunge Vocalist Ever - Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder, Layne Staley, Chris Cornell, ... ?

    Hmm, maybe I'll change my vote to Courtney Love. "Live Through This" album really is one of the best Grunge albums made and lots of people don't realize it.
