What musician, album, or song best describes what working at Steampunk means to you?

Dave Grohl – a T-shaped resource much like many of the Punks we have here, Set the Pace in the early days of grunge by helping the genre find its voice and by generating a cult-like following as the drummer for Nirvana. Grohl Thrived Being Uncomfortable when he took a chance and recorded a demo tape on which he wrote the music, played all the instruments, and sang vocals following his first band breaking up in 1994. This tape made its way into the industry and created immediate interest from major record labels.
