Sure, Belltown’s Crocodile Café holds a place near and dear to the hearts of many Seattleites. But now Gibson Guitar is singing The Croc’s praises, recognizing the music club of local legend as one of the ten greatest rock venues of all time. Catapulted into worldwide rock relevance by the grunge explosion of the early nineties, The Crocodile made Gibson’s impressive shortlist for establishing itself as “the prime stomping ground for the burgeoning Seattle music scene”–a legacy which still endures today. In the venue’s relatively short history (it’s only been around 16 years) The Crocodile has played host to big name acts, like R.E.M., Sonic Youth, The Beastie Boys and even Yoko Ono, not to mention some little homegrown bands you might’ve heard of—Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Death Cab for Cutie and Nirvana. You know, just to name a few. For more details or to read the entire list of venues, check out the link.
