They're all from the grunge 2.0 movement, though.... That and I can't stand Foo Fighters simply because every song of theirs sounds like a replica of the same average song that propelled them into fame in the first place.

They definitely came out of the grunge movement. Dave Grohl was in the most well-known grunge band ever. I just think they're a lot better than the lot you mentioned. No big deal, though. We all have different tastes.

i really don't like nirvana's music. i never got the big deal the other kids were going on about. i couldn't and still can't relate to any of their songs in any way remotely. they're a far cry from being "great". bands like pearl jam, mud honey, soundgarden, alice in chains and STP were more worth the listening time.

Funny Nirvana story----

Once upon a time I won tickets from a local collage music station to see Nirvana at a small local music venue, I was pretty happy because I really liked this "new" band and really wanted to go see them....

However...my boyfriend (Now my husband) thought that they we 'just some heavy metal band' and did not want to go to the show. SO WE DIDN'T. At the time he was into Janes Addiction and NIN. So I'm like WTF? Flash forward....boyfriend realizes the greatness of Nirvana....and I'm like WHY didn't we go to that small show?

I'm surprised we're still married sometimes.......

I think Nirvana are generally overrated, but a better band than they get credit for on this site in particular.

I remember when "Smells Like Teen Spirit" came out. I was a freshman in college, being a DJ at our teeny-weeny 10-watt college radio station, and we played "Smells Like Teen Spirit" over and over, and it was pretty much just the best thing ever.

(Then I got obsessed with My Bloody Valentine's "Only Shallow" and rebelled against our music director's "no U2 post-War" edict, but those are other stories no one cares about.)

I think Kurt Cobain was a charismatic and talented individual and I think Nirvana had a few unarguably brilliant songs. I heard Smells Like Teen Spirit for the first time a few good years after it first exploded, and it was just electrifying. But overall I get bored to tears with Nirvana if I try to listen to them for more than five or six songs. Which goes for grunge in general, really.

You got to give the kids boundaries and rules to abide by

Otherwise they will turn to knife crime

That's true. I couldn't even tell you how many people I've stabbed since I started listening to Nirvana. The numbers are staggering, I'm sure.
