I'm so tired of this Kurt Cobain is overrated crap. Ye, he died young at his own hands, but if he hadn't he'd still be relevant and he would probably be even bigger than he is now in death.

Fact is, he made music an entire generation grew up on and identified with, and for that alone he isn't overrated.

Fucking right, sister. In fact, it's really interesting. My Creative Writing/American Lit 2 professor, in his late 40s, thinks that Cobain was the equivalent of Kerouac to the 90s. Ja.

And the fact that he wanted to work with Bono and Michael Stipe and take his music in other directions is really sad and just makes things more tragic.

And I gave you one (Cobain's position near the top of everyone's Top Anything, Ever lists), albeit snarkily.

And really, your tone is more "I want to get pissy and indignant over your offhand comment" than "let's have a calm, rational debate on the merits of Kurt Cobain," so chill out.

I don't see how me calling you pissy and indignant is worse than you calling me uncool and rude. Double-standard much?

I also don't see where I implied that I "knew" you. It's not like I'm reading your palm or anything.

Since I can't judge you by your words, what metric do you recommend? Hey, what's your sign?

i think nirvana is a OK band, but not great. and i think my opinion has a lot to do with overexposure. maybe if i had just quietly discovered them on my own i'd like them more, but as it is nirvana was kind of shoved down my throat, i think.

Did anyone buy this today?


I would have, but I was broke after buying some little U2 album.

I bought it this morning and it is better than I expected

The DVD is really good especially Smells Like Teen Spirit and Jesus Doesn't Want me for a Sunbeam

I haven't listened to the whole box set but, Do Re Mi is really good

It hasn't been released over here yet. I asked in several record shops and it looks like I'm going to end up buying it on Amazon.
