Anything that destroys hair-metal has to be good In my opinion....

Smells Like Teen Spirit, for me personally is one of those rare songs that I've heard hundreds of times yet have never ever tired of listening to. Have always enjoyed it, never contemplated putting Nevermind in the CD Player with the intent of skipping it. Simple as that, and there are only a couple of dozen songs that fit that category (only 2 U2 songs for that matter).

Soundgarden, anyone?


If I want early nineties rock, it's alllll about the shoegaze, not grunge.

Question:

When you're a Jet, are you a Jet until the end? And, when does your status as a Jet begin?

This is one of my favourite Nirvana songs as of late:



so badass

probably not the best if you're a fan of melody though

I was obsessed with Nirvana in middle school, but I'm not so into them now. I used to love Kurt's voice but now I feel a lot more about it. Still, I think they have a lot of great songs. A lot of their singles have gotten massively overplayed, but I still enjoy some of them. Pennyroyal Tea, Drain You, and Aneurysm are some good songs too. And yeah, I'm one of those fans who actually likes You Know You're Right.

Nirvana definitely is overrated generally, but I think they're underrated by a lot of people here.

Scentless Apprentice is pretty awesome, but the squealing Kurt does on the album version gets to me.

I think a lot of what made those bands so big went beyond the music. They didn't just babble on about rock cliches and fans and all that. When someone asked them a question, they gave an honest answer. They were people, not "rockstars" so it was easier to relate. When Nikki Sixx talked about killing himself by overdosing, or CC Deville said he didn't remember playing MSG, you thought it sounded like rock and roll and therefore cool, but you couldn't relate. Those Seattle dudes just seemed down to earth - except Layne Staley. He was fucking weird, But not in a hair metal way. Just out there.

My favorite Kurt Cobain moment is when a reporter said, "Rolling Stane magazine stated that..." And Cobain said, "Rolling Stone? What do they know?" I always liked that.

How about when he appeared on Rolling Stone's cover wearing the "Corporate Rock Still Sucks" t-shirt?

Gin Blossoms were the Kings of Post-Grunge
