How ironic. I think every Nirvana song sounds exactly the same.

Testing theory: Do you like either band?


I like that one song from Spider-Man by Nickelback, which is exact one more song than I like by nirvana. So, no. Listening to Cobain "sing" is like hearing fingernails on a chalkboard.

IntertubeUser: Grunge sucked and Nirvana sucked more than most. Then the emo-idiot frontman offed himself, garnering a cult status for a whiny bunch of tone-deaf hacks.


I gotta admit, while i liked grunge at the time, and while 'smells like teen spirit' was an awesome cultural event (as it blew away hair metal and made it look ridiculous), it isn't really fun music, and didn't age well

Ten by Pearl Jam holds up well. And grunge holds up better than pretty much anything from the 80s.

I can understand if you were too young when '90s music hit, and i can't recall the last time i popped in "bleach", but I'll be damned if bleach wasn't a fukton better than anything else out at the time.

Yeah thats how Chad Kroger/kruger? sounds to me. Too young for this, but was Nirvanna like the NB of the previous generation? There seems to be some hate for them.

I listen to Guns N Roses, Bon Jovi, U2, REM, etc far more often than any grunge music that I actually grew up with. Yes, I liked Ten and still do. Temple of the Dog, Alice in Chains, Afghan Wig, Hole, L7, Veruca Salt, etc I have on my Ipod, but I gotta tell you, it hasn't aged well.

Because like any art... some bands/artists/whatever ellicit as many haters as fans. Just happens sometimes.

Lollipop165: Never understood the appeal of Nirvana


I was 17-ish when Nevermind came out, and loved it. Truly for the music, not just because everyone else did.

However, I am in the camp that it really didn't stand the test of time very well.

All in all, there are like maybe 5-ish songs that have. And most of them are the ones they did with the Meat Puppets on Unplugged.

I thought they aged incredibly well, along with sound garden.
 
2012-08-01 05:28:21 PM
Wasn't pretty much every song on In Utero about how Kurt hated Courtney? He might as well have titled it "I'm going to kill myself and it's because of my drug-addled succubus of a wife."

thecpt: Lollipop165: Alice in Chains

I didn't think of Sound Garden, yes they aged well. I think Alice in Chains did better than most other bands only because they (and Sound Garden) were a bit more on the rock edge of the "grunge" genre.

The songs that survived the best from any grunge band, I think, are the most commercial songs. The real "grungy" sound just doesn't translate well to new times I think.

You know how every few years old becomes new again? Well, I'm kinda waiting for grunge to come back. Yeah, the doc martens and flannel shirts are in style again.. but the sound and the grunge "vibe" haven't really from what I've seen. It's kinda like disco or punk (not pop punk) or gangsta rap. It was the perfect music for a certain time, place, and attitude. But it doesn't really translate well over decades...

/just an opinion... i like most music genres
 
2012-08-01 05:37:55 PM
I'm not really a conspiracy theorist at all but I read Ian Halperin's book and he makes a very strong case that Courtney had Kurt murdered.

Yeah, the commercial songs is a good point. Thats how audioslave is still successful. Cornell didn't need to be part of grunge, he just was. If Sound Garden happened any other time, it would have been labeled rock imo.

And about grunge not repeating, yeah I can't think of a popular band off the top of my head that reminds me of grunge. Glad to hear the popular ones from that era still making great music like Ghrol and Cornell.

Mugato: Nirvana was already on their way out when that single hit anyway. Kurt blowing himself away was the best career move the band made since they first signed. And we got the infinitely better Foo Fighters instead.


That'd be a great observation if the Foo Fighters didn't suck.

She's wrong, but Kurt did write a few songs named for her vagina:

"Endless, Nameless"
"Stain"
"Big Cheese"

I have Nirvana's greatest hits on my iPod right now, and disagree about their not aging well. Granted, it's kind of a time-capsule music that would sound weird being imitated today, but the only thing that keeps me from listening to it more is that my kids are usually in the car and I don't want to explain "Rape Me" to them.

But I also have most of Huey Lewis and the News albums and all of Blues Traveler's on there. So I'm sure music experts like yourselves consider me borderline retarded.
 
2012-08-01 08:09:21 PM
Never had any use for Nirvana and will turn it off if it comes on the radio in favor of, well pretty much anything else. Always enjoyed Hole, and think Courtney is a decently talented actor. She's a weirdo, and kind of a psycho, but she made herself out of nothing and she's not stupid.

Yep. Because grunge is pretty much just garage-band rock, which has been timeless since the invention of the electric guitar. The only difference being that they wore flannel a lot and the songs weren't as upbeat. I found it hilarious in that Pearl Jam documentary when all the boomers were saying, "I don't understand this music."

It's all the same shiat. The biggest difference being the vocals, which in grunge is more whiny and meandering. And there's less guitar antics than with hair bands. But it's hardly some radically different genre of music.

pretty much my thoughts. At worst, especially among Nirvana and Pearl Jam, quite bit of the main tenets of 90s Grunge is still way overplayed, but it's otherwise held up well. I don't think I really understand counter-arguments otherwise.

that said, I listened to Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness for the first time in 15 years recently. Good lord, I'm skeptical that anyone can listen to that beyond age 16 with a straight face. It's not so much dated as much as it overbearingly whiny.
 
2012-08-01 08:56:36 PM
I was listening to my Nirvana playlist today and I think it's aged well. Bleach still sounds great but once they added Grohl, they hit paydirt. "Stay Away" is the song my three year-old and I rock out to in the car on a regular basis. "You Know You're Right" makes me even more pissed they never got to make another record.

Also been hitting my Ministry playlist (including "With Sympathy" in all it's 80's synth pop glory) and again, I think it holds up.

Veruca Salt has a lot of dust on it.

I heard years ago that she said it was about an actual heart shaped box courtney kept under her bed that contained love letters from billy corgan, thus the references to pisces in the song, which pissed kurt off.

Back to the subject of the article; I think the real reason Courtney is pissed is that she actually listened to Lana Del Rey's wretched performance of the song. Further evidence that Del Rey owes her career entirely to her looks.

/not to mention the retard who filmed it in vertical video format
