I've lived in the area now for almost 6 years yet I've avoided Aberdeen like the plague for the past 5 after just one visit. God that's a depressing town, and it has nothing to do with Kurt.

King 5 news is the worst!  Dennis Bounds totally sucks.  Jean Enersen is just plain scary to look at and is a chronic shop lifter to boot.  Fark them!

It is pretty good.  Strangely, people never accuse them of ripping off The Wipers even thought they cover a few of their tracks.  The Wipers seems to have been a big influence on bands that came out of the PacNW.

I think you can accuse any alternative band formed after '89 or so of that.

Thanks. yeah, it could be better, I just went for it real quick.

I ain't even mad at Kurt. He says he was inspired by the loud/soft fast/slow sound of the Pixies. We are all influenced by some one. He didn't expect it to get huge.

Oh wait, it was just marketing and producers to trick the dumb masses. Again, that will be said by someone in a few minutes.

They all ripped off somebody, so who cares.

"...the local news coverage from network King 5, who (as Stereogum notes) essentially mocked the entire tribute and made tasteless jabs at Cobain himself."

Kurt Go-bang.

There I said it.

Nirvana was fun while it lasted, but only took on the "epic" thanks to Kurt's death.

/The other downside: it arguably gave us more exposure to Courtney Love

For a brief, shining moment she just killed it. 'Celebrity Skin' and 'Violet' are great songs.

Then her love affair with drugs began to take it's toll.

And yes, Aberdeen is a shiathole.

that statue is awful. Hilariously awful.


www.spin.com

a GIS for "crying kurt cobain statue" gets a lot of Angelfire results. Some people never left the 90s, i guess...

I remember seeing "Kurt co-blam bongs" for sale at the black in ocean beach by in 95. make me laugh then and still does

You should never build a statue for someone who most likely wouldn't want anything to do with having a statue.

Maybe the tributes are so "underwhelming" and everybody is making so many "tasteless jabs" because nobody farming CARES anymore.

Jesus people only cared about the dude because they were told it was the 'in' thing. Everyone has moved on from that whiny Fark by now. I sure wish that I could be hopelessly successful so that I could spend all of MY time biatching about how much it sucks not to have to work 50-60 hours a week and live paycheck to paycheck.

Thank goodness for Fark music threads so I know what it's currently OK to like.  Before I found these, I stupidly just enjoyed whatever music sounded good to me.
 
2014-02-22 08:46:11 AM  
Have you guys ever seen Nirvana Unplugged? It really highlights what a great songwriter Kurt is, like that song In The Pines. Any you haters ever written a song like that?

Kinda ironic considering he hated that town with a passion.
