Named for two music genres that just didn't make it
in America. One had too much exposure, the other, not enough. It was inspired by the 1970's Disco fonts like Bahaus 93 and Blippo (I think) which I called "the Jefferson's font" because it was used for the credits (and just about everything else) for that tv sitcom.
Grunge was an alternative music (and like Disco a lifestyle) where the sky was the limit. It was more "rebel-like" but not quite "redneck". That's where the Grunge part came in.

It's basically Disco form and design done for the Grunge era. It was drawn in 1986 but never released to the public until now. The Disco-Grudge font family was created in 2013. A complete redraw of the original font, which was not officially named until this time. The Original had only 52 characters and was a single variety only. Punctuation was added later. The 2013 redraw resulted in 3 varieties, with 406 characters each. They were all digitized each as both .ttf for Windows and .otf for Apple. There's no registered trademark or Yen sign but most common symbols are there. (See pictures for what's included.
The varieties are lite (the freest of them all), rounded (Very liberal but more conservative on several characters, and of course "Stroked" for the calligraphy pen used in it's making for the final version. The Stroked is also the closest to the original design. Retro fanatics would probably love this font.

    I'm not sure how to interpret your take on grunge. "not quite 'redneck'" — huh?????

    The Grudge movement was very renegade, but was a not "Goofing it up then making fun of it" type crowd. A excellent example of what Redneck is I'd have to say is the tv series from A&E (aetv.com) called Duck Dynasty. It'd be hard to not call these folks Redneck in every sense of the term. The only thing missing is the trailer home. Jeff Foxworthy made a killing from Redneck jokes. You Tube is full of Redneck stuff, yet you see little about Grudge where they had their own way with their own music. They were wild but not goofy like today's Redneck would be. How many Grudge jokes have you heard. How many t-shirts have you seen making fun of the Grudge lifestyle. There's plenty making fun of the Redneck. Also Rednecks aren't always this way, but a lot of them have a more "Dixie" like living, so it's not uncommon to see Confederate flags in Redneck designs and homes. Keep in mind, not all Rednecks are White.
