The obvious review introduction here would be, "Don't believe the hype." But in spite of the skepticism with which we approached, we found this home page (a tribute to the documentary film of the same name) quite entertaining. Hype! is self-described as "a film that takes a journey back to the birth, explosion and mass-consumption of the home-grown, world-renowned and overblown Seattle rock scene," also known as the infamous "grunge" era. The site includes links to home pages of bands such as Nirvana and the Posies and includes audio bites and soundtrack information. History lesson aside, you can get the 411 on the film itself from production and interview stuff to credits and audio. The site was created specifically for the film, not the grunge scene. But it will whet your appetitie for further research elsewhere on the Web.
