Yes, they were a huge influence on grunge (Nirvana and Pearl Jam covered them)

Too bad you can't ask Kurt who the Northwest's greatest rock band was. Not sure I ever heard PJ do a Wipers song, but the Melvins sure did.

The Wipers box set, available at Greg Sage's website: $15, probably the best bang-for-buck bargain in rock and roll, and if the RRHOF were worth their weight in fecal matter the Wipers would be in....but the RRHOF pee-tests it's employees, so what can you expect? More ABBA.

A good punk/post-punk band out of Portland, Oregon. Won't get into the Hall anytime soon but some pretty strong material.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
