Re: Grunges influence on society
If you haven't already read it, pick up Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge by Mark Yarm.
I'd also suggest going on Tumblr (stay with me) and asking these questions to grunge bloggers, teens/young adults commemorating the genre. Avoid the #soft grunge tag, though, you will weep.
