Initially, lo-fi grunge was used to make slick online magazines about fashion, skateboarding, snowboarding, fashion, and fashion. These e-zines were really just excuses for design showcasing (as evidenced by the fact that several "issues" of Saksi's Silbato e-zine have no content whatsoever). The Lo-Fi Grunge Style has since been used to make a very navigable site for a bicycle tire company and a groovy snowboard retail site. Lo-fi grunge's commercial applications are broader than teen recreation and fashion, but those are its initial points of departure. Any product marketed to the "extreme sports" sector is ripe for lo-fi grunge design. This includes all-terrain automobiles, cross-training athletic shoes, sports drinks, soft drinks, jet skis, and Taco Bell.
