Releasing albums like Core, that spawned hits like gSex Type Thingh, gWicked Gardenh, gCreeph, and gPlushh lead them to become one of the most influential bands of the grunge movement, the music genre that was started in Seattle in the late eighties and became rock and rollfs central movement in the early-mid 1990s. Weiland has cites Jim Morrison and David Bowie as more influential on his vocal techniques and sound. Core was extremely successful, eventually being certified 8x platinum by the RIAA.
Weiland and STP released Purple, which saw the development of a more distinctive identity for the band.
