    Francis Bean doesn't like Nirvana

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/music/news/...ansBillboard11

    Which I guess shouldn't come as a big surprise. How many kids are fans of what their dads do?

    "I don't really like Nirvana that much [grins]. Sorry, promotional people, Universal. I'm more into Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre," she said.
    I can appreciate her liking Mercury Rev. If she means the early stuff with David Baker. I think I like one song after he left and the rest of it sounds like so much other stuff that's out there.

    I've always felt Nirvana was overrated. If Cobain doesn't kill himself they would be nowhere near as revered as they are.

    That being said...Oasis? lol

    I'm sort of lukewarm on Nirvana. I was the right age at the right time but I'm not interested in revisiting their music anymore.

    Frances Bean sounds like a real pleasure to be around.

    When they came out I was more into Pearl Jam than I was Nirvana but over the years I've come to appreciate them.

    I was always (and still am) more of an Alice In Chains man.

    You guys do understand that "Smells Like Teen Spirit" took down the entire hair rock genre? Like one song destroyed many careers. Overrated or not, thats an accomplishment.

    Shes just a kid. Hell my kid likes Metallica. He'll grow out of it.

    Kip Winger talking about seeing Stewart for the first time is both heartbreaking and hilarious.

The basic story is that he was unaware of Beavis and Butthead, watched it and thought it was funny until they introduced Stewart. A TV show let him know he wasn't cool anymore and it stung. The story has changed over the years and he's recently made up with Mike Judge (whatever that means). He also now claims that he was never mad about it.

    That's funny. I have to imagine that Kip was at least a little bit delusional. I don't think Winger has ever really been cool. I remember they had a couple of modest hits.

    I'm definitely not here to stump for Winger, but Kip Winger is a tremendous musician (he was a session player for years). He just got too into the scene at the time and sold out to it. In a lot of ways, I think he probably just bet on the wrong horse. The wrong bedazzled horse. (Hair Metal).

    No if Cobain doesn't kill himself he goes on to grow and create even better music. She was raised by her **** addict mother, not too surprised.

    Cobain killed himself?

    AIC was far and away my favorite band from the era, but I thought Nirvana was a great band, and there is little doubt that Nevermind was one of the most influential albums that has ever been created.

    I can respect Nirvana's place in Rock history. They came around at a time when hair bands just got way too out of control. Nirvana brought back a raw energy that had been sorely missing for a while.


    That being said, their music was something I enjoyed more as an adolescent. As I've gotten older, it just hasn't quite stood the test of time (for me anyway).

    And Paris Hilton single handedly ended the grrrl power era. The influential pioneers usually aren't the best at what they started.

    Smart kid.

    Kurt was an underrated singer. Dude was very good in person. Unlike today where everyone sounds like shit without auto tune. There is a documentary of the music producer who worked on his music. Don't remember the name. Its pretty good. I was a huge fan of Nirvana and Oasis. lol Go ahead and flame away.

    How The Autotuned ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ Explains Everything Wrong With Pop Music

    Video has apparently been blocked. Link below takes you to a sound clip of the song.

    Some interesting comments regarding compression and loss of dynamics, along with several dozen posters pimping their personal faves.

    Same thing for me, a pool hall in Norman. I put a couple bucks in the jukebox playing Smells like teen spirit after hearing it, blew my mind at the time. It’s still a good song, but not nearly as impactful.

    I was at the old Tower Records store in Quail Springs Mall and they were playing it so I had to go ask the guy at the counter who it was. He said "A new band from Seattle called Nirvana". I bought a copy of the Nevermind CD right there and then.

    felt that way when I heard Man in the box and Sex Type Thing for the 1st time and was hooked on both of those bands instantly. Sturgill Simpson is only artist since the 90s that has had that type of impact on me since then..

    Seriously, with how manufactured modern pop music is, things are setting up for someone to do it again.

    Also, Maynard James Keenan was a prophet:
