About This Quiz

The combination of Seattle's depressing weather and a heavy dose of all sorts of chemical addictions led to the demise of many of the leading artistic voices of a generation. These iconic, flannel-wearing rock stars rebelled against the status quo and brought us a way to express that teenage angst in all of us. They're gone from us now, but their spirits offer support and guidance to those who seek their counsel. Which one of these bigger-than-life personalities is the best fit for you?

If you're someone who is an introvert and fairly reclusive in your lifestyle, we're probably going to immediately start to think about Chris Cornell as the rock spirit guide for you. Should you mention that you're also highly involved in social justice causes and you're willing to step into the spotlight to advocate for those that are "going hungry," there will be little room left for doubt about this match.

On the other hand, maybe you're someone who has more of a Midwest vibe. If you're highly sensitive to your environment and you tend to keep things relatively simple and practical, Kristen Pfaff from "Hole" might be just the one we've been looking for.
