Cameron Crowe’s Singles hits the big screen on September 18, 1992. Set in Seattle in the early ’90s, Singles introduces a nation of mainstream moviegoers to the burgeoning grunge scene taking over the Pacific Northwest. The film centers around a group of young adults navigating life and love in the world of coffee shops and bar bands, and that’s where it really makes history. Matt Dillon stars as a shorts-and-combat-boots-clad heartthrob named Cliff Poncier, who fronts a grunge band called Citizen Dick. The rest of the fictional band is comprised of Eddie Vedder, Jeff Ament, and Stone Gossard, who at the time of filming were in a real-life band known as Mookie Blaylock.

Absence made the heart grow fonder.
