Ooba Tooba: JoshTheTech: Kanye's skirt looks hot.

He's also wearing a skirt. Probably from the kardashian whore's line.


Sorry, read that as "shirt"

Kanye is so into himself. His reaction to everyone's reaction is going to be great.

Gunny Highway: PizzaJedi81: Gunny Highway: TrainingWheelsNeeded: AdolfOliverPanties: Cobain loved the Beatles but he did say he thought McCartney post-Beatles was an embarrassment.

obviously

Who is that?

Nobody knows his name. Rumour is he doesn't have one. But he stands in judgement of your post facto discover of modern societal ennui in regards to the fusion of past and...further past acts to be detrimental to the development of new acts...none of which you've ever heard of.

Ahhh. So is it cool to hate Nirvana and the Beatles for their success again? This is getting confusing.


I farking hated Nirvana way back in 1991. I guess that makes me a scenester?

Well then I was a scenester way before it was uncool.

Also fark Nirvana.

Old Man Winter: kingflower: I hope they cover, "Say Say Say".....

Wouldn't surprise me, Nirvana was mainly a cover band anyway.


Nirvana is what you get when a heroin addict hears an album by Alice Donut or Melvins and says "hey, I can do that".

No. No you can't.

I know you think this comment makes you badass, but you're really demonstrating your ignorance. Call him overrated if you want, but the fact is there are only a handful of people who can shred their voice the way Kurt did while still singing on key, while also playing guitar.

I like listening to hip-hop in my car, but for me, it just doesn't work live, it's like pantomine. Mileage varies, of course.

Nirvana killed hair metal stone dead, for that alone they are Rock Gods. Oh, and fark you, Chuck Klosterman.

Damn! is Dave Grohl a kick-ass drummer (though Taylor Hawkins is excellent too). Macca's in good voice, hope he doesn't botch the inevitable Hey Jude finale.

I think Neil Young would be a better fit and they could then perform Sleeps with Angels.

What you're saying is he shouted loud while playing guitar.

You two are totally missing the point. It doesn't matter if Cobain was the greatest musician in the history of the world, a combination of Mozart, Liszt, Miles, Bird, Robert Fripp, Ravi Shankar and John McLaughlin (off the top of my head) or if he sucked worse than Johnny Ramone, HIS BAND KILLED HAIR METAL.

All other points are irrelevant.

I'm not nearly as big of a Nirvana fan as I used to be. I still like them, but after 20 years I don't find myself listening to them as much. My tastes has expanded and I've heard the same four cds for so long now that I hardly find myself listening to them now.

However, I feel the need to defend them. For the people who say Cobain did nothing but scream over screeching guitars; if that is true, then why has no one else been able to do that as successfully as he did? People say anyone could have fronted Nirvana, yet whenever someone covers their songs, it never sounds right. I'm not saying he is the greatest vocalist, or that any of them are the greatest ever with their instruments, but the three of them together were more than the sum of their parts.

And yeah, like them or not, everyone should be grateful that Nirvana not only killed hair metal, they teabagged it and told it they farked its mother.

It's predictable that the "big name" artists who show up for these things are going to mostly be older, established artists who already have piles of money and are starting to worry about their legacies, and would like some more exposure. We should regard ourselves as fortunate that everybody, including the Who and Jagger and Watters* seemed to be in top form last night. Itwas pretty decent, altogether.

*Good GOD is Roger fond of himself. The most punchable face in Rock and Roll, bar none.
